Coffs Harbour’s New Skatepark


Coffs Harbour is the latest town in northern NSW to be granted some incredible concrete to shred. Construction is coming along nicely and is due to be completed by the end of July. What do you think?

Looks like it’s going to be a great park. Justin is going to put a clip together for us once it’s open. This is sick!


Great looking park. Coles nice and close for bevies


It’s not far off now, anticipation is definitely building around the area!


The official opening is on this Saturday the 26th of July. Anyone that is around the area get amongst it!


Justin Schepis was on hand for the opening of the park last weekend, and by all accounts things went well. The park is definitely looking epic. Stay tuned for Justin’s edit from the day.

From Justin:

“I awoke on Saturday morning to dark skies threatening to spit rain down and ruin the long awaited day, but mother nature was kind and the rain held off until the late afternoon and provided everyone with an opportunity to shred with cool weather. After the official cutting of the ribbon by the Coffs Harbour mayor, the crowd grew excited as bands started to play, dancers performed various routines and everyone went to work ripping the fresh concrete. Standout performances went to local ripper Justin Carriage and Ballina super-grom Jakob Robinson, as they performed some super stylish tricks with amazing consistency. The day was an enormous success, and the park looks to be filled with young and old alike, who will definitely be looking forward to skating here for a long time to come. Big ups to everyone that had anything to do with making this skatepark/youth centre finally happen, it’s safe to say that Coffs Harbour is finally on the map as a must visit skating destination!”

Can’t wait to skate it!
