Finsbury Park Skatepark

This is a small concrete park located in Finsbury Park in North London.
It’s built up of two bowls, one with a shallow to an extension and the other with rounded off banks, quarterpipes and a fun box with a hubba.
The bowl I found was really hard to skate and is difficult to keep a line going due to the shallow banks and the overall shape of it, however this would vary person to person and seeing I’m a pool rider would naturally find this more difficult.
The second bowl with the banks is also quite difficult to keep a line going, you need to do a lot of carving to retain speed which then proves difficult when setting up for your next trick. Despite all this thought, the concrete is smooth and can certainly provide for a good session. I would go there as a warm up spot in the morning rather than making a day trip out of it.
