    Feelgood, you lucky bastard, I used to skate with so many awesome kids from around the Shire, sucks being on the North Shore, not enough cats up there. D:
    Yeah bro, it counts.

    Which park is everybodies favourite?

    The two best parks I've skated would have to be Frankston in Melbourne and Maroubra if only for the bowl.
    Peace and love.

    My favourites, i'd have to say Monster, Slam factory, Berowra and my local St Ives. I'm dying to skate waterloo one day but I just haven't gotten round to it, it looks like a more fun version of Berowra.

    Probably Bondi for me, so much crazy **** goes down between my and my pals down there, not even skating related. I skated that Berowra park once, it's so new and abstract. The tiny euro gap and the stairs are so fun though.

    Never got a chance to actually skate Waterloo but I'll definately go next time I'm visiting. Everytime I've been planning to go there, everyone just decides to skate the city instead. D:
    :P

    Bondi is fantastic . . .

    If you can get a line in. It's so packed there, it's crazy! Waterloo looks good but far more street based, I'm more into ramps and minis and bowls.
    Peace and love.

    We have one kinda fun drainage ditch, some stairs ranging from 2 - 8 stairs and a handfull of manny pads but thats about it.

    It a large town but a very small City.
    I was in Lithgow a couple of months back. Had dinner at an italian place. I could have sworn that I saw a pretty sweet flat rail. I think it was outside of a car dealership?

    Anyways, I'm from Glebe, in Sydney. There is a mini-ramp a little ways from where I live and only a short bus ride to Waterloo park. It's a pretty decent street park. Too small though. I went there today, but snapped my crappy blank deck in about 15 mins. First time I skated it too. I'd have to say it is the first time I ever snapped my tail doing a front 180 flip. Usually, I'd get the nose.

    I'm pretty stoked that I get to go skate my hometown park in Canada, in a couple of weeks. Thing is sick. Check it:

    There's only one place that I can think of. A possible crooked grind but aside from that it's fairly un-skateable. There are about 10 of the little rails, all within a foot of each other, you'd have to pop out. That and the added danger of hitting a 20 000 dollar car and it's enough to deter most of us back to the small sets and the metal skatepark.

    I'm not complaining though, we've got some great spots.
    Peace and love.

    In live in Melbourne (I cannot believe there is SOOO much more sydney action on this thread then Melbourne, thought it would be about equal!). I'm in the exact centre of the city pretty much, about a thirty second walk from Flinders St Station. This city is great for cruising around in, I don't know much about the parks and spots etc. as I only skate freestyle and the less people around the better But I've seen the riverside park and it looks pretty good, also pretty busy.

    I used to live in ringwood/fern tree gully/wantirna and the skating was pretty good I agree. But you are certainly not an hours drive from Melbourne, not even an hours train from Melbourne!! I can drive speed limits all the way and get home from Wantirna in about 25 mins tops. You should come to the CBD more, its awesome

    OOOOH My God. New park just opened in North Sydney and it's F*ckin sick from what I've seen on youtube. I'm heading out there tomorrow to skate it all day, can't wait. Doc, and any other Sydney siders, come out for a sesh with me one day, from what I can see this park beats Waterloo in it's on little abstract way.

    ****kk it owned today. Best park in Sydney hands down, everyone got out there today, about 100 skaters there, it was awesome. No bikers either, nothing for them to do there

    I'm going back on Wednesday with a mate, we'll probably be there all day again, so anyone who can get out there, it's a great park, you won't be dissappointed.

    Oh and if you wanna see the park, I haven't got any pics, but theres about 3 videos on youtube, just punch in Cammeray skate and there'll be a few there for you to drool over
