Williams Farm Update

As the sole street skater (as far as I could tell) at the meeting I still feel pretty good about what Team Pain is going to do at Williams Farm in Virginia Beach. At 20,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for giant vert bowls and fun street stuff. Tim Payne really impressed me as someone who really thinks about every aspect of a park from it's orientation and how the sun will be setting to what materials to use and how everything flows together. Preliminary plans where presented showing a long boomarang type shape creating a lot of space for continuous skating. There will be another design meeting in roughly three weeks where more detailed plans will be presented incorperating the input from this meeting. The main feature discussed was the bowl and snake run. The bowl will be 6, 8, and 11 feet deep, the snake run will go from small to big with hips and corners. The planned opening date is August 2012. Oh, and VB local, Joe Fernandez is working for Team Pain now and might be part of the crew building Williams Farm.
