Vert Skating in Australia
I've been a vert-quad skater for 22 years now. Until recently, I skated ramps, skate parks and wherever I could to get the adrenalin pumping to have a good time.
I'm now stuck with a bad back condition that prevents me from skating too much.

I'm now steering to design a new base plate, (to pass the time), to fit onto the bottom of a boot to make quad-skates lighter and stronger, using aircraft alloy. Unfortunately, its a teadious task to trial these plates, and in the meantime, I just watch my mates skate and have a good time.

As I know of, there's only myself, and a friend you may know of as Paul 'Rollerball' Jessop that skate vert nowadays in the land downunder, and we have just recently got a proper vert ramp closeby.
Paul skates it alot, and I've never seen other vert-quad skaters on a ramp downunder in nearly 10 years.

If your interested in visiting the biggest vert ramp in Sydney Australia at one time or another, check-out this website:
Measurement wise, this ramp is 14 1/2 ft. high by 68 ft. long.
It also has a spined mini-ramp and an indoor street section too.

There are a number of skateparks scattered around the local area that you can visit while your here too. Visit this website:
which will show pictures and locations of all skateparks in Australia.

I'd be more than happy to see some vert quad-skaters in Sydney, so just email me if you have any questions.
