Located in Northern Bavaria; Selb skatepark is one of the smoothest and most flowing next level parks designed by Martin Ehrenberger. For Blackriver building parks is an art form, not a business venture; non-profit building at it’s finest! After nine weeks and 12,000 euro in material costs, construction of the park was made possible by the Blackriver-Ramps Crew, Spoff Crew from Vienna, and Selb locals. The special part of this park is that it is only for skateboarding, where as most other parks cater to scooters and bikes, Selb is focused only on skateboarding and the locals respect this. Before the park opened, most kids in the town had never ridden a skateboard, now the park has about 30-40 kids each day. Full of wobbles, pockets, and smooth sailing, Selb is a must skate.
