  • WELLFIELD FIRST SCHOOL- Have to hop over the maximum security gates first though, but very smooth. SAINSBURYS CAR PARK- Super smooth, but pisses off shoppers. WBHS TENNIS COURTS- smooth, but boring as HELL.
  • Fun City arcade, smallish skatepark, but cheap.
  • Along the front and on the links.
  • The park at the end of Grafton Road
  • Fast Eddies indoor skatepark above the arcades: £3 every day, except Saturday ٣ including a band. Pretty good but mainly built for BMXs. There's a midi ramp with a couple of spines (both on the same side) one comes straight off the ramp, one's got a platform type thing in between - the ramp's meant to be really good (I didn't really do much on it 'cause I've never really skated a ramp before). There's a little street section as well, a couple of quarter pipes and a flat corner ramp thing. All the stuff's really well built and there's a bar and a cafe in there as well. It's £3 at the moment [5.96] 11am - 11pm, but it'll be going up to £5 in a bit, you can get into it through the Empress video game arcade thingy - or if you go through the Spanish City there's some stairs up to it (it's above the arcade).
  • Eddies now also has a vert ramp and the street course is currently being re-built with fun box and grind rails.
  • Fast Eddies has shut down Skate City now open 100metres down the road (walking with the sea to your left) 2 mini's 1 flat rail 1 fun box Good if your in the area or if its raining Not a Wakefield or Radlands though Wednesday night skateboards only 2.50 a session open 1:30 pm weekdays 11:am Weekends Go to Newcastle for street though on the Metro train
