Many modern skate parks encompass new ideas and new building technique to produce some of best skate environments.
This was not always the case, going back only 20 years ago there weren't a huge amount of skate parks, like there is now. As skateboarding, bmx, and extreme sports in general became more popular with the increase media interest and professionals earning huge amount of money, many sponsors and big brands began to put money into the sport.

This increase in money set the plans in motion to build modern skate parks that we see today. Many of these parks have bred some of the stars of today, and if it wasn't for leading brands such as Nike SB putting money into the sport then we would not be seeing the high standards of today.

From this point of investment into skateboarding, the sport has seen a massive increase in participation and coverage, events are held all over the world with big prize money on offer.

These events are at a very high standard because of the riders skills and abilities which have been applied and perfected in purpose-built skate parks.
