Based in Hemel Hempstead, the XC is home to one of the UK’s finest covered skateparks and welcomes skateboarders, scooter riders, BMX riders, and skaters of all varieties and abilities.

Our park has the only covered concrete pool and bowl complex in the UK, with a pool designed to look and ride just like a back yard pool in California. It features pool coping (imported from California), tiles, a filter box (death box) and even steps! Our concrete bowl is huge and has two tiers, ideal for picking up and maintaining the speed you need for a good run. It’s 5ft in the shallow end, 8ft in the deep end with a 9ft extension and two hips going down into the deep end, perfect for vert skaters.

We have a new resi ramp, flanked by two quarter pipes custom installed by the legendary team at 414 skateparks. It’s the only resi ramp near London currently and features foam underlay with a resin top, ideal for practicing getting big air and landing those more technical tricks safely.

We have an amazing street section with a huge variety of quarter pipes, flat banks, boxes and manny pads. In the middle of the section we have a set of Hubbas (for regular and goofy skaters alike) and a serious rail down the middle. There is also a small down rail for practicing and a hesh rail over the step up for those who dare!

We host regular junior skateboarding lessons run by the ABC Skateboarding team. These courses are ideal for beginners and continue on to intermediate and advanced levels.
We also host regular drop-in sessions for adults looking to learn new techniques or build up their confidence if they haven't been on a board for a while.
