FLOW's Exciting Additions and Resurfacing Transforming Taupo Skatepark

FLOW is set to revolutionize the skateboarding experience in Taupo with the introduction of new features and surface enhancements. As part of the overall redevelopment project, FLOW has meticulously crafted and installed two new products, including a transitioned ledge with an adjacent manual pad in corten steel and a standard round hot dip galvanized steel rail. These additions have been strategically placed to create engaging lines on the northern side of the skatepark, further enhancing the area's appeal to skateboarders of all skill levels. Additionally, FLOW has utilized their cutting-edge FLOW Resurfacing Product to extend the park and provide a high-quality concrete surface for optimum performance.

Features Installed:

  1. Transitioned Ledge and Adjacent Manual Pad in Corten Steel: One of the standout features of the revamped Taupo Skatepark is the transitioned ledge in corten steel, designed and installed by FLOW. This innovative feature combines functionality with aesthetic appeal, creating an ideal spot for skateboarders to showcase their skills. The transitioned ledge offers a smooth surface, allowing skaters to perform a variety of tricks, slides, and grinds with ease. Adjacent to the ledge is a manual pad, providing riders with the opportunity to practice balancing maneuvers and technical tricks. Both the ledge and manual pad are expertly constructed using corten steel, renowned for its durability and weather-resistant properties, ensuring their longevity and suitability for the skatepark environment.
  2. Standard Round Hot Dip Galvanized Steel Rail: Complementing the transitioned ledge and manual pad is the addition of a standard round hot dip galvanized steel rail with Corten Panel Infill. This rail offers skateboarders a versatile feature to showcase their creativity and hone their rail-riding skills. Constructed using hot dip galvanized steel and Corten Plate, the rail boasts exceptional strength and corrosion resistance, ensuring it can withstand the demands of daily skateboarding sessions. The standard round design provides a comfortable and smooth sliding surface, allowing skaters to execute a wide range of tricks and grinds.

FLOW's strategic placement of the transitioned ledge, manual pad, and steel rail has been instrumental in creating engaging lines within the skatepark. Skaters can seamlessly transition from one feature to another, promoting flow and continuity in their runs. The carefully planned arrangement allows for diverse trick combinations and encourages skateboarders to explore new possibilities, fostering creativity and progression within the skateboarding community.

In addition to the exciting new features, FLOW will resurface the entire area using their proprietary FLOW Resurfacing Product and general honing. This cutting-edge solution offers a high-quality, durable concrete surface that enhances performance and provides a superior skating experience. As part of this we have engaged renowned New Zealand Skater and Artist Adam Wharekawa to create the captivating artwork on the facility. His abstract landscape illustrations will grace the surfaces of the park, adding a touch of artistic flair and creating an inspiring backdrop for skaters. By employing our own resurfacing product, FLOW ensures that the skatepark meets the highest standards of quality, durability, and functionality, cementing its position as a premier destination for skateboarders in Taupo.

FLOW's transformative additions to the Taupo Skatepark, including the transitioned ledge, adjacent manual pad, and standard round steel rail, have injected new life into the skating scene in the region. These meticulously designed features, crafted from durable materials, provide skateboarders with exciting opportunities to showcase their skills and push their limits. Coupled with the extension and resurfacing of the skatepark using the FLOW Resurfacing Product, FLOW has truly elevated the overall skateboarding experience in Taupo.
