Check out my little page: http://www.skatecornwall.com

Also, there's a thread about 'are you coming to Cornwall or Devon?'

Let me know when you are down, I always like a Hawke session, or if it's dry we can find somewhere outdoors for maybe a quieter sesh. 8)

If you want mellow with peace and quiet then Playing Place is the spot.

If you rock up at Hawke just as they are opening you can normally get it to yourself or very quiet for an hour or two. Or yeah most outdoor parks will be empty at that sort of time.
Stithians is usually quiet too and worth a look.

came back to london at weekend, never had a skate whilst down there ( drove thru playing place but couldnt spot it from the road ) but on drive back from the bowgie ( west pentire) i spotted what looked like a half pipe deck hand rail ,the address on google maps is 2 halwyn road , west pentire .

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=+west+p ... 56,,0,9.77

hopefully one of the links work, and you can spot the handrail .
might be worth a look but remember i only saw it from the road and couldnt stop to check it out.

I drive past there from time to time - I'll see if I can take a look and get some pics. It's just on the way in to Cubert, if you're looking for it on a map...

...doh! - it's not on the way to Cubert, it must be on the way to Crantock - no wonder I couldn't find it :oops:
