It's very important to follow park etiquette. Keep to the guidelines and everyone will have a great time!
  • Think before you leap!
  • Look before you leap!
  • Is this for you? Know your limits.
  • You are taking on the risk. Be aware of any and all potential injuries or equipment damage that can happen to you.
  • Make sure you can land safely. Avoid features that are too big for you.
  • Your Responsibility Code is in effect. Read it and follow it. There are rules, and you can get your pass yanked if you don't follow them.
  • Be polite. Act as if your mother is watching, and refrain from using foul language.
  • No aerial somersaults. Don't put your heels over your head.
  • Leashes are required. Use leashes on your board to prevent runaway equipment.
  • Get out of the way. Don't stand on the features or in the landing areas.
  • Go with the flow. Be patient and wait your turn.
  • Only ride what you can see. Have a spotter tell you when the landing is clear.

Check out all of the features before you use them, and continue to do so throughout the day - features can change over the course of a few hours. Look at the ramps, transitions and landings to see how difficult each feature is and to determine how you want to ride it. There are many features of all sizes and shapes.
