Adding Color and Texture to Concrete Skateparks

Airspeed Skateparks added concrete color and textured concrete to a skate park in Waldport, Oregon.Airspeed Skateparks’ work was featured on the cover of last year’s World of Concrete issue. Since that time they have started incorporating both color and texture into their work, and decorative concrete has become a valuable extension of their skate park design services.

Airspeed constructed this funneling full pipe — 17 feet in diameter at the front and 10 feet in diameter at the back — at a skate park in Reedsport, Ore. They made the unique custom form out of plywood. “It’s the first loopable pipe that you can go upside down,” says Mike Dahl of Airspeed.
