320k for that! I think that's rather a lot tbh. Pool bowl looks nice but not sure about the rest of it, the design looks a bit quirky and not well thought out.

That looks great to me.
I like somewhere where I can keep on going, something that flows for lots of carving.

it looks like loads of bumps in an over sized bowl :? it doesn't look as though it will have any natural order of flow to it so it'll just end up with everyone getting in each others way....

Some pictures of the amoeba bowl on the FB page. Looks brilliant! A proper bowl with vert and pool coping! Keen to skate it and get some pics before it gets tagged and a car driven driven into it :wink:

Checked it out, fucking awesome. Really nice surface and trannies are just the right side of whippy to be fun and interesting, bowl is a beast but workable, nicer than Duck Lane for sure. Great flow.

There's no street section (unless you count flatbanks) which isn't an issue at all, since there are a million parks for that, and er... the streets.

Post up when you're coming as I need any excuse to get down there :)

I'm in London weekend of the 18th Sept. So the weekend after that if the weather forecast is good. How deep is the deep end of the bowl? Looks about 10ft?
