Skating just got a whole lot easier. We are stoked to announce Skateropolis.com: A creative outlet for skaters and the entire skateboard industry.
We have tirelessly mapped out every skatepark in the U.S. (and soon the world) including very specific details about all the skateparks from terrain to designer. The web site was built entirely open source so everyone in the skateboarding culture can link his favorite photos and videos from all the major sites including youtube, flickr, picassa, vimeo and many others.
All public skate photos and videos can be cross-referenced with user groups and skateparks so that we house the most comprehensive skateboard database in the world. Site users will always have the ability to edit and rate any information on any park and they can add a new skatepark with the click of a button.
Our goal is to connect the greater skateboarding community as a whole but also to keep the local skating scenes connected. We are going to do this by offering only sponsorships only to companies that benefit the skatebaording community. A banner on each skatepark is reserved for each local skateshop (first come first served) so each can connect with the skaters in the area for upcoming events and for the sales of shoes, decks, trucks, wheels, etc.
Skateropolis is launching very soon. Stop on by when you get a chance.
