The Course

Renderings coming soon...

Our approach is to design and build a diverse, modern, and challenging street course out of both concrete and wood. It will flow consistently by combining unique transition obstacles alongside iconic street spots from LA. The course will feature Hollywood High's 12 and 16 stair rails. Building replicas of iconic obstacles that standout as benchmarks will create opportunity for progression at the highest level of skateboarding.
