In the world of action sports there is always an obstacle needed and Freshpark is the only company in the world that can do what it does! Portable obstacles are obstacles that can be transported, linked, placed, or moved with only one or two people. No fork lift required. 
In skateboarding you need boxes, rails, curbs, ramps, poles, and anything else the street has taught you how to hit. Along with producing over 25 obstacles under the Freshpark Brand, Freshpark also makes obstacle for Element, Darkstar, and Mike V.

They were created for Skateboarding, Longboarding, Scootering, BMX, Mountain Bike, Balance Bikes, Inline, and even RC Car racing. Freshpark took over 2 years to just create the perfect riding surface with their ABS/URETHANE blend. 

The FRESHPARK line of ramps & boxes were created by professional skateboarder Roger Hickey. 

More on Roger Hickey;
