Hopefully you had the opportunity to skate RDS before it was closed down in 2006. That park had everything: rails, stairs, ramps, ledges, manny pads, and most importantly the transition and vert. The vert room was huge. There was a mini-ramp, two bowls, and the monstrous 13' half-pipe. The mini-ramps were mellow and nice and low. The two bowls had different depths and they connected for transitions. In the street room there were so many different things to skate and all of them were very well built and skated smoothly.

It was like skate heaven. There was even a skate shop inside. And if you were lucky, you met some pros, such as Rob "Sluggo" Boyce and Colin McKay.

RDS was B.C.'s largest indoor skateboard facility and one of the nicest public skateboard facilities in Canada. The street room measured 12,000 square feet and the vert room measured 8,000 square feet.

I miss RDS and I'm going to miss it even more with the crappy weather days ahead of us. But, on the bright side there is going to be a new skatepark in Surrey.

Check out the RDS skateboard brochure below. It has been hanging on my wall ever since they closed down. It’s cool to look at and I'm sure it will bring back some fun memories.

These are known to come in a variety of different
colors and varieties for your decorating pleasure.
The walls were cracked and had some stucco like covering on them in the shape of alternating blocks.
Next most people like to remodel their kitchens and get the new modular kitchens installed.
