New concrete bowls in Capbreton – southwest France

Capbreton (built by Zutskateparks) is hard to figure out, hard to get some speed but after a while it’s really fun. The street park is really nice, and well done.

Bénesse-Maremne (5km from Capbreton and built by Concrete Waves Skateparks) is more fun if you like trannys. The Viking Blocks pool coping is perfect and the concrete is smooth with lots of lines and quiet surroundings. I love it. JB Picot and Hall04 designed both parks and are doing a great job putting France on the concrete parks map.”
