Summer 2018 is right around the corner and we are so thrilled to be back in Waterloo! We have more weeks than ever before and we can’t wait to stoke out the kids that skate/ride in the K-W area.

We have had some many awesome weeks of Waterloo Skateboard & Scooter Camp is years past and we know that this summer will not disappoint. The Waterloo Skatepark at the WMRC is a great venue for our camps, and the City provides us with everything else needed for a great week of camp – like their huge splash pad, an indoor location for rainy day activities, and more!

The Skatepark

 

The Waterloo Skatepark consists of 10,000 square feet of hybrid skatepark and urban plaza elements that encircle the center ‘volcano’ ramp/planter feature which contains a large autumn blaze maple tree.

The intent of the design was to create a space for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders to interact and enjoy progressively more challenging terrain including two level, four level, six level and seven level stair sets – each complimented with handrails, hubba ledges, ‘cheat ramps’ and manual pads. The east side of the park has a set of oversized stairs/ledges that serve as informal bleachers for spectating while the north and west sides of the park are
encircled with flatbank ramps that allow skaters/riders to flow around obstacles and through the park.

The park is located at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex, at 101 Father David Bauer Drive (click to view on Google Maps).

The Skatepark

whistler skatepark

While the Whistler Skatepark was originally opened in 1991 for the growing community of snowboarders, the newest renovations and expansions were done in 2016; making this picturesque Canadian city home to the second largest skatepark in the nation (over 50,000 square feet of skateble space). This incredible park is surrounded by towering cedar and fir trees, with a rushing alpine stream nearby – we couldn’t ask for a better location for an unbeatable week of camp.

The Whistler Skate Park is centrally located between the Village and Fitzsimmons Creek, and open daily from April to November between dawn and until the lights shut off at 1 a.m.

The park contains a serpentine run into a 6.5-metre diameter “Snake Bowl”, a cherished and unique feature in North America. A second area contains a variety of ¼ pipes up to three metres high, a spine, volcano and central pyramid. The expansion linked the two previous phases of the skate park and incorporates long flowy lines with multiple ledges and street-style elements that allow skaters to pump and flow for speed.

The Other Stuff

Here is a clip of some local pros showing us how to ride every bit of this epic skatepark. Enjoy!

Along with it’s status as one of the world’s premier ski/snowboard destinations, it is also considered one of the top places in the world for mountain biking. There are many kilometres of trails in the Valley to ride, a bike skills park next door to the skatepark, and the world’s best and biggest bike park around. Consider spending a little more time than planned in Whistler and take a bike for rip on the trails.

$: Kendama – Buy It Here

The Kendama is an extremely addictive wooden skill toy that comes from Japan. This toy is great for young and old alike as it strengthens hand eye coordination, balance, and reflex. The trick possibilities are endless for both the beginner and the seasoned master.

The Kendama consists of the “Ken” (handle), connected by a string to the “Tama” (ball). The Kendama tricks are done by variations of juggling the ball in the 3 cups, spiking the ball with the Ken spike, and doing both in new creative ways. Much like scootering or skateboarding, mastering the Kendama takes practice, focus, patience, and creativity.

We love that the Kendama is a simple, productive, interactive toy that strengthens mental and physical skills while you play. In today’s world of flashing lights, computers, and tech-savvy toys, the Kendama stands out with its simple design and creative new ways to have fun.
