Encinitas Magdalena Ecke YMCA Skatepark Description

San Diego County is home to the vast majority of pro vert skaters making the Encinitas Skatepark a perfect fit for the premiere vert skatepark in Southern California. The skatepark is now home to the 2003 X-Games vert ramp which is one of the largest vert ramps build to date.

Here are the dimensions for the vert ramp:
- 13' with 2-feet of vert
- 12-foot-wide, 20-foot-high roll-in
- 15-degree hip
- 160 feet in length, including the roll-in

The 11' backyard pool style kidney is perfect and is by far the best skatepark pool that SoCal has probably ever seen. The shallow is 7' and with fairly mellow transitions which leads into the 32' diameter 11' with 2' of vert deep end. There is a death box in the deep and 2 concrete steps with tiles in-between that are extremely rippable and do not hinder lines throughout the pool. The tile is black and the coping is set perfectly!! Witnessing Kevin Staab blast a 6' to 7' backside ollie in this thing tells all - need I say more.

The combination bowl has a 6' square with perfect corners, 9' slightly over-overt bowl, and a 9' bowl with perfectly set pool coping and tile all around. The hip between the oververt bowl and the square and the hips in the 9' bowl are perfect for blasting transitional airs. There is a slight waterfall in the 9' bowl that slows you down a little but overall the combination bowl is a blast to skate. To me, skating it sort of reminds me of a combination of skating the Glendale Skatepark combi-bowl and the Clairemont Skatepark pool.

The skatepark also features 2 concrete flow /street sections

- Hooking up with one of the premiere skatepark design firms Site Design Group and having them both design and build the skatepark!
- Teaming up with local pros like Chris Miller, Lance Mountain, Brian Howard, and many others to help design the kidney pool and combination bowl.

The skatepark rocks big time!! Road trip worthy 4-SURE. Go get some when you get a chance.

Skateparks are becoming more common as Skateboarding grows in Southern California and around the world. A Skatepark Directory such as SoCal Skateparks can help you to find the best Skateboard Parks in Southern California. We have put this Skatepark Directory together so that skateboarders in Southern California and around the world can find skateboard parks easier here in SoCal. Skateparks are important to the foundation of skateboarding. In order for skateparks to remain vibrant in SoCal we have to do our best to make sure that the skateparks that are built here are going to be skateparks that our children will want to skate 20 years from now. We want this to be your first choice skatepark directory and hope that all of the skateparks listed here will help you to find your way.
