Carlsbad's Alga Norte Community Skatepark held a grand opening on Saturday, January 11. The park has all the classic goodies such as multiple sized hubba ledges, a 7-stair rail, gap, flat bar, manual pad, pool coping bowl, a flow bowl and lights that stay on past 10 p.m. The event drew local pros like PLG, Chany Jeanguenin and other locals such as new Baker pro Riley Hawk, Blake Carpenter and Richard Angelides. Also in attendance was former pro and Action Sports Design employee, Kanten Russell. Russell, along with Mike McIntyre, works for Action Sports Design, which is known for its work at parks such as Cayman Islands, Lake Forest, and Chelsea Piers. Thanks to Kanteen Russell and crew, the city of Carlsbad, Calif. and everyone else that brought this great skatepark to fruition.
