This is quite possibly the strangest skatepark you will ever see.
It’s set inside a church. You can see the stage that is used as The Altar for Sunday Service.
The floor we are skating on is where the congregation sits. You can see all of the chairs stacked up along the wall.
It’s called Revert: Indoor Skatepark and it is located at Gateway Church in London, Ontario, Canada.
Since it is set inside a church, it has fairly limiting hours. It’s always best to check the calendar on their website to see when they are open before heading out with your board and helmet.
The ramps are moveable and customizable.
My only beef with the set-up of this indoor skateboarding facility is that the quarter pipes have this lip at the bottom of them. You need to ollie up on them instead of just rolling up. That is not a trick I am particularly good at.
The ramps are designed this way so they can fit together to form the mini-ramp half pipe. When I first got to this facility, most of the skaters were using the quarter pipers to gain speed to do tricks on the other ramps and obstacles.
I asked them to build the mini-ramp and spent most of my time on it.
I love half pipes and this one is low enough that I could do some nice tricks on it.
