SKATEBOARDING WITH A CHAMPION

Douglas Cameron, the Canadian who manages the park and oversees the camp -- just in its second year -- says it’s as much for local kids as visitors. It has 64,000 square feet of ledges, boxes, v-hips, banks and stairs and half pipes, which to the uninitiated look like a lot of hills built into the cement.
