Skate park in the lac lavasivire island in the limousine region in France. I was working there last week but it wasn't ready :cry: much dissapointment as it looks gnarly. It also glows at night :mrgreen:

It is a weird bowl but the Island is full of artistic installations and from what I gather considering my french is shite is that the bowl is a usable artistic installation. I would have loved to try and find a line around it and ther is a small tunnel in it too but by the looks of it that bit was unskateable but the wordunskateable Iis like a red rag to a bull to some skaters

fun park, lines are hard to figure out, the highest wall being up the hill and the clamshell at the bottom, and it does glow in the dark...

Looks superb. Our park builders sem to have lost their way and ambition. Another 4 foot rectangular bowl anyone?

its supposed to be horrible to skate, cool....but horrible!

We took a drive to milan last weekend and visited a skate shop there:

This place has actually built a skate bowl, probably 30ft in the air on top of there stocking racks in the warehouse. There's a few photos on the link above but it doesn't do it justice, its mind blowing.

Nice bloke owns the place as well, he let pretty much anyone skate it!
