SKATEPARK RULES ‚Äč& ETIQUETTE

Parents and Guardians of Under 8’s and inexperienced skaters under 1.2 metres must be advised
of the benefits of hiring safety equipment and under 8’s MUST be accompanied by an adult skater
(over 16 years old).

Don’t snake!

If someone jumps ahead of somebody else who is waiting their turn to ride/skate a
line this is known as snaking. Please always wait your turn at the top of the ramp/bowl/section - don’t
“drop in” on anyone.

Using the ramps

Please only use the ramps if you are able to, know your limits. If you need to start
small then stick to the beginners section at the front of the park and leave the bowl and rails until
you are ready!

Long runs

Be respectful here and try not to spend too long on a run.

Ability

Only ride/skate at your ability and don’t try to so something that you are not ready to
undertake yet, to avoid risking injury to yourself and others.

Respect

Everyone in the park deserves to be there even if they are a complete beginner. Don’t start
mocking someone if they can’t do a trick or are not as good as you. Support and encourage each
other – that is what makes the skatepark a unique place to be.

Be aware

A skatepark can be a dangerous place to be so always make sure that you are aware of
what is going on in your surroundings and watch out for other users.

Sitting around

If you are not riding and want to take a break please don’t just sit around the park
as you will be getting in someone’s way and will only frustrate them and likely cause an injury.

Safety gear

Extreme Unit recommend that all users wear protective gear including helmets, elbow,
wrist and knee pads when using the skatepark.

Have fun!

The most important part of being in the skatepark is to have fun and enjoy yourself and
it doesn’t matter about how good you are as long as you have fun! The more you practice the better
you will be and there is no substitute for practice!
