My kids have pulled the ol switcheroo on me and have been sk8ing almost every day. Mostly ditching their surfboards (for now) along the way. I'm stoked because skating is super fun and we do it together as a family. The annual winter trip for waves or snow has shifted towards taking the van out for a week in search of the best skateparks. We are in SD and plan to drive east AZ NM maybe west TX or North to Santa Cruz/SF etc. Let me know where you would go. We have a week.

Mahalo,

Belch

Havasu park looks pretty epic, haven't been though.

Nor have I been to SLO, Los Osos, and Ojai, but if you decide to go the CA route they look cool.

I have skated the Solvang park. It's fun with a weird two tiered bowl area. Not too much for street skating (not sure what you and the kids are into). I hear it gets crowded on the weekends, but during the middle of the week I was the only one there. Lots of good food/beer/wine in the area if you're bringing anyone who doesn't wanna skate.

The Bay has tons of parks. Berkeley is big with a nice mix of stuff. Emeryville is fun, funky. And there's a bunch more in Oakland and the City.

Hope that helps, have fun!

I'd skip New Mexico and West Texas around Christmas. El Paso is a long way and Albuquerque and Santa Fe are a bit brisk for outdoor skateparks that time of year imho.

Good suggestions guys. We've been to the Los Osos park, its rad. But, not the others. Solvang is a great lil town I'd love to check out, too.

Thanks, Belch

Pacifica is actually pretty fun, too. And then you can enjoy a chalupa as you watch the waves roll over a sea of soft tops.

Thanks for all the advice, guys. We're gonna hit Solvang, SLO, Las Osos, Lake Cunningham, Santa Cruz (not sure which ones yet) and spend a couple days cruising SF. Brining surfboards, too. Just in case there are waves. Holler if you're around these parts and want to shred the gnar, haha.

That sounds like a fun trip.

Take pictures and make notes and report back.

Holy hell that's gonna be epic. I would replace Solvang with Ojai though from what I've heard.

If youre driving north, hit the Pedlow pool, in Encino.
Not particularly gnar, but its deep, fast, and fun.
