Parks & Courses (2016)

Parks & Courses (2016)

Every year we build one of the most creative, challenging and fun park courses for three days of professional skate and BMX competitions.  Carrying on what seems to be a perfect tradition, we work with the UK’s premium park builders, Four One Four Skateparks.  In 2016 Four One Four designed an insane park to ensure the iBMXff World Championships had the best possible platform to show the progression of BMX.  The park also lent itself perfectly to Skate and Inline with the introduction of more street obstacles. We're now working hard on next year's designs. Stay tuned for more details in Spring 2017.

PRO PARK


We present to you the NASS Pro Park.  With the iBMXff World championships returning to NASS our park will take centre stage.  Yet again, the guys at Four One Four Skateparks have come through with another incredible park design that sees the perfect mix of street and transition to offer an all round park experience.  From the return of ‘Elvis’ to the addition of some crazy new street obstacles, we are sure that this park will offer the canvas for the worlds best BMX’ers and Skaters to express their art.

Someone that has demonstrated his supremacy in the NASS Pro Park is two times NASS Pro BMX champion Logan Martin, who had the following to say -

The course looks awesome this year as per every year! The box straight into the step up is always super fun! I’m sure there will be some fun gaps and transfers by looking at a photo! The course usually links up really well and is always built solid so I’m excited to ride it!” – Logan Martin

Designed by the UK’s leading park designers 414.  Shaun Scarffe and Trevor Johnson have been building parks all over the UK.  From Corby to the newly completed Mount Hawke (Cornwall).  414 are building the best wooden structures in the UK and we are proud to be working with them.

 

VERT


Last year Tony Hawk said that the NASS vert ramp was the best demo ramp he has ever ridder.  This is a testament to the hard work that King Ramps have put into building such a good vert ramp.  It seemed crazy to not have the ramp back this year, so here it is.  From some of the world’s best vert skaters like Clay Kreimer, to BMX vert BMX legend Mat Hoffman.  We might have had the birdman last year, but this year we are going to have a whole flock of flyers!!

Kings Ramps.  Headed by UK vert legend Pete King.  Pete built this vert ramp to Tony Hawk’s specifications and the ramp has is renowned as the best demo ramp in Europe.  It has been to Sweden, Paris, Spain and NASS.  We are always stoked to welcome Pete and his team to build an epic vert ramp at NASS.

 

FLATLAND


Brand new to NASS, the RADLANDS Arena.  Here we will create an arena for the iBMXff Flatland World Championships, as well as a stage for Soul Mavericks to perform their B-Boy antics.  We are really excited to see this new arena and can’t wait to watch the best and original freestyle BMX’ers performing in the sunshine.  NASS is going to be epic this year!

 

DIRT JUMPS


This is the moment you have been waiting for, the NASS 2016 Pro Dirt Course.  One of the best dirt riders in the world, @kyeforte (check the tag), is back again to build an incredible dirt course.  Almost doubling the size of previous courses, Kye has added a step up and return section offering a total of 5 hits.  This course will lift Dirt at NASS to a new level and its what the riders have been asking for.  We cannot wait to see the worlds best destroy these jumps, whether they are on a BMX of a Mountain Bike.

Gorilla, designed and built by BMX legend and world champ Kye Forte.  Working with Andy and Kye at Gorilla is an absolute pleasure.  They always deliver the best in Dirt and work on the world’s leading events.  This year’s course is such a progression on previous years, it would have been crazy not to work with such a great and experienced team.

 

PUBLIC PARK


What would NASS be without the Public Park.  This is your chance to get involved and have a go.  Whether you skate, ride, scoot or inline, this is a space where you can hang out and get in the zone.  Sweat off the hangover or just get yourself pumped before enjoying some of our headline acts.  We have stepped up the mini in the public park this year to a 5ft mini and have some inventive street obstacles for you to get creative on.  Its all free, so come and get involved.

Remember, you must wear a helmet to ride the public parks and ramps!

 

GHETTO PARK

The NASS Ghetto Park was quite a hit last year and this year will be no different.  Paying homage to 80’s street skating contests this park will be a shed load of fun.  This means smashed up cars, fly off ramps and jersey barriers to keep the moshers and street heads happy.
