We have finally finished the 2nd phase of our new indoor park project here in Copenhagen, PORT4130 in alliance with the CopenhagenBMX Association and Ramp-Riders.com.

It is located in the old ship building quarter in Copenhagen city.

The unit is 12,500 SQFT/ 1,100 SQM of wall to wall park fun.

The street area is just under 300 SQM in size. We tried to put as much as we could into the design while at the same time keep it some what simple and traditional but with a twist.

Really happy with the way this step up Euro gap worked out in the end. This was all done with recycled Skatelite which was collected over the years. Weather worn and shades that can never be replicated again.

(Quick reminder)This is whats on the other side of the street course area where the guys are standing. The super bowl.

This is probably one of the most recycled skateparks projects ever to have been produced. There are materials from old ramps and skateparks dating back 10 years in this place.

We pulled down some of the old fælledparken before the concrete park was built. We built hall12 with that material then pulled hall12 down and built some of this place with those materials. Thats just one example, there are many many more within this project. Exceptional levels of recycling go down around us when we build certain projects. ha

We experimented here a little bit with overhanging hollowed out ledges over china banked style sections.

This was an organic design to a certain extent so the final result revealed itself slowly. This is similar to how the bowl was done also. Nothing is ever 100% though, but as long as you are prepared to change and evolve and take risks then in time the results will truly be unique.

This is just phase one of that thought process.

We got a nice big mini ramp here also. 6 meters wide and 1.8 meters tall. You can never beat a simple mini ramp session. Its timeless and every park should have one as well as a sick bowl.

The Resi area. We were hoping we would have had room for a more spacious jump box resi area but in the end it was not possible. What we got is more of a spine/mini box jump resi with resi quarter.

The quarter rolls right into the landing of the jump but considering what this actually is and its overall function, it still totally works, it just takes a little getting used to.

You can still throw moves over this thing and feel safe.

And once again just to remind everybody of the super bowl in the back of all this with an ocean view terrace. This place rocks. Its got lines forever in the bowl, its got street, mini ramp and resi area all under one roof. So come along everybody and get behind this place. We are only getting started. Next phase of this is building a 500SQM outdoor concrete park on the south side of the building with full terrace.

Giant clean up and move first batch of materials in.

The first thing that went up was the mini ramp.

That giant insulated wall had to come down also to gain more space. Theres a full meter of floor space behind that thing. Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

Moving quickly ahead, taadaa… We eventually started running out of space for anything and everything around here. using recycled materials forces your hand a little bit. The building plan is dictated by the pre cut materials you have and don`t have.

Overhanging china bank chaos paired with recycling nightmare.

It was a cause for celebration finally taking down the partition wall between the bowl and the rest of the place.

It was amazing to finally see how both sides of the unit would interact together visually.

Of course being in Denmark and it being that time of the year you can`t escape the Siberian effect out here. Frosty cold coastline.

Ryan, Jonas and Mark here hitting it hard as usual.

China banks meet central bank meets plateaus meets quarter pipes… quite the blend.

Quite the finish.

The step up euro gap Skatelite hell.

This was finished around 3 am, the night before the first opening, The first of many mini opening events we had.. I think we had 3..ha

Look at that though!! Looks a million bucks!! A rainbow rail is the next thing we will probably build into it. Something hard up against the outer edge but moveable at the same time.

The resi area was the last thing we hit to give us some sort of spacial breathing room. Just moving a dodgy light here, or should I say move a light in a very dodgy way.

Getting the foam was a happy day, it was good stuff and brand new.

We got this new toy for the build to do some fancy filming. These things are amazing fun and some interesting moving images are going to be coming out of this place soon.

Every so often a few fires would go down in the snow with a few beers.

Good fun and well deserved.

The roof has been giving us some problems so we had to go  up for an inspection. It is really high up there, 11 meters or something like that.

What a view though and the roof is finally fixed.
