Kaos Skatepark - Test Shred

A week or so ago, a few of us were lucky enough to go and get a shred of the new CONCRETE indoor skate park getting built in East Kilbride. As you can see from the photos this place is gonna be pretty insane. Due to be finished in a month or so the park willhave 4 different sections, hopefully meaning enough room for the inevitable hordes of skaters, bmxers and scooter fags.
This winter seems like it might not just be so bad....
