*~Self-proclaimed professional rollerbladers Jordan Daly (no not Dale) and Josh Ganz got a sneak peak of the upcoming Louisville Extreme Park. If you live in the area and want to check it out you are allowed on the site now so long as the construction crew is there but you are not allowed inside the railing circling the park. After speaking with the man in overseeing the project and the architectural designer of the park they realized they needed some feedback from some quality rollerbladers, who else aside from Jordan and Josh. We were allowed to skate the park for about an hour along with a few local pro skateboarders to see what the facility was like and to give input as towhat was good and what wasn't. As of right now all the coping is pretty sticky (due to grit still being left on it from dealing with concrete) but that will soon change once it is open to the public. The setup of the park was pretty good, it's got bowls of all shapes and depths along with a "street" area with launch boxes, gring boxes, rails and ledges. The full pipe was basically impossible to skate but was kinda fun for a minute or two. For more info check out or you can wait till is finally up to see pics and whatnot of the completed park. The grand opening will be next friday April 5th. Everyone should come down and check it out.
