The floating concrete skatepark we designed and built for Red Bull made its way down to New Orleans, Louisiana this past weekend for the final event of the Red Bull Mississippi Grind. Hosting contests at stops along the Mississippi River route, the NOLA event featured the top eight skaters from the previous stops in St. Paul, Minnesota, Davenport, Iowa and St. Louis, Missouri.
A beautiful City, a passionate crowd and some amazing skateboarding talent made this an incredible event. To make a great story even greater, the first Mississippi Grind event series is concluding with the donation of the concrete elements to the City of New Orleans for their first public skatepark. With corporate sponsors like Red Bull giving back like this, the future of skateboarding looks very bright! Photos from the whole journey can be found here.
