Peckham bowl

visited a bowl i didn't know about in Peckham

http://www.caughtinthecrossfire.com/skate/skate-news/new-bowl-for-south-london/

only me and a couple of parkour guys. one of them wanted to try and drop in with great confidence. 3 amusing slams which his friend videoed. he then insisted on trying a few ollies despite being unable to actually roll.

anyway, the bowl...

it's very small in overall size, transition is fine and even, about 4' high i would say. Metal coping all the way round in a good state.

The concrete on the transitions is smooth but the base is rough and you lose speed with hard wheels. The transitions are graffed but i didn't find them slippy.

There's a lip between the bottom of the transitions and the base but not enough to cause anyone problems or make you bail on fakies.

It's in good condition overall and very clean, not full of crap and rubbish, nor any vandalism so marks for that.

I found it too small to get any lines as such, just went back and forth but then I'm shit anyway.
