You’ll find Tugun Skate Park at the northern end of the airport. It has both old and new sections with an upgrade being completed in 2015. The older sections are a bit rougher and you can sometimes get the area to yourself. The newer sections are smooth, fast and fun.
Tugun Skate Park Elements
The skatepark is spread out over a wide area. In the older section there’s a lot of banks, quarter pipes, half pipes and pyramids. There’s a lot of different lines through here with heaps of hips and launch boxes. There’s nothing over 6 foot. The flatland is a bit rough is places. There’s metal coping on most transitions aside from the half pipes.
In the new section you’ll find a pool bowl, complete with steps and tiles. This heads down a large bank with a fat rainbow rail stuck flat in the middle. Use the bank to pick up speed for the hubbas, flat down rails and stairs.
At the turn there’s a curved wave quarter pipe that leads into banks with a grind box top. These are opposite banks with a hip. There’s a street section on the flat with different style manual pads, ledges and rails. Some have cutouts, others change height. At the end there’s a large quarter with roll ins either side.
Tugun skate park sits by itself surrounded by open space and a dog park. It’s pretty close to the gold coast highway though so you can get places quickly. There nearest shops are a fair scoot away but there is a bus stop close by. There are toilets and drinking water at the park. There’s also plenty of seats and shade.
