Its Greenbelt skatepark. They have a street run and a large 10.5 foot bowl and the more mellow one thats 4.5 to 5 or 6 feet deep.

Heres a video of the streetcourse and at 1:30, it shows the baby bowl. Thats the one I want to try!!

Wanna come with me or to landsdowne? It will be my first time carving.... It will be fun, either one is good for me. :-D

: : hey what bowl is this? landsdowne?

: : : I found out the bowl here has lights, and its not too far from work so if there are people out there it stays open til 9pm!! And there is a drain so 24 hrs after a rain, its good to roll.
: : :
: : : The bowl is pretty mellow. Its about a 4 1/2 foot roll in and the other side is no more then 6 feet tall with flat coping. So I think I"m ready! But still havent really learned how to carve. How should I start out? Its not a big bowl, small kidney shaped where I have to carve left, not my strong side. Should I go in and hit the wall like a halfpipe first then start to make arcs? Or should I go in and work my way out first? Its not scary now just new.
