Created by the UK’s leading park designers FourOneFour, the NASS 2019 Pro Park has been carefully designed to cater for street and park skaters. New exciting features have been added to this year’s park including a hammer section with a stair set and driveway tech section for the street heads, plus transition gaps and hips for the park heads. In keeping with the spirit of the festival, Bristol-based artist, Mr Penfold will be transforming the park into a bespoke art piece.
Skaters will be competing in two different disciplines this year, Skate Street which is split into men’s and women’s competitions and new addition, Mini Ramp. The ever-popular NASS Jams are making a return, following a tried and tested format they see skaters battle for cash for tricks, they include the legendary Ring of Fire, Skate Wallride and Longest Rail Jam. The Plaza which serves as a public skatepark will be back with an all new course design; attendees are encouraged to bring their board with them to experience the festival to its fullest.
