Den Haag pumptrack

The existing skatepark at the Rijswijkse Landingslaan needed a makeover. All concrete was in a terrible state and we updated the obstacles to make for a better overall experience. Besides this renovation work we teamed up with Velosolutions to build a nice little pumptrack for all to enjoy right next to this little streetcourse. The ever illusive & internationallly acclaimed artist Mr June worked his magic to create an incredible outdoor space that is not only fun to ride around on but pleasing to the eye as well.


Griftpark Utrecht

Since their realization the Griftpark bowls in Utrecht had not received any proper maintenance. As a result the bowls were in a very poor state and the concrete had become very rough. In the summer of 2018 Concrete Matters renovated the Griftpark giving all the concrete new life with our unique renovation process.

Albertpark bowls Kortrijk

When the Kortrijk bowl was built in the south of Belgium it was truly groundbreaking:
never before had such an exceptional bowl been built on European soil! TeamPain (USA) designed and built this wonderful bowl in 2004 and upon opening the Kortrijk bowl was host to many international skateboard en BMX events.

In the thirteen years since it's conception the surface of the concrete had deteriorated so much that not merely visiting skaters but even the locals were starting to complain about it's rough texture. Two stress cracks were starting to chip at the hips in the shallow and mid section and there were a couple of chips in the seams of the cradle. Using a special 2 component artificial concrete we did repair work on these holes & chips and we leveled out two bumps in the vert section. The main task for the renovation of Kortrijk however was polishing every inch of concrete making all riding surfaces feel & ride like brand new concrete once again!

The top half of the picture above shows the concrete after our polishing process, the bottom half of the picture is still untreated. Our polishing process makes the concrete smoother which makes it less dangerous when falling and/or sliding down it's surface. The treated concrete skates faster yet still has those excellent gripping & sliding characteristics that new concrete has. Our renovation process makes skateparks more resistant to water & dry faster than before making not only more skating possible but also safer skating!


We would like to thank the city of Kortrijk for cherishing this bowl by giving it the necessary  maintenance and last but not least Team Pain skateparks for this amazing structure that we now get to enjoy to it's full potential for many more years to come!

Time to get sticking again, peoploids! Who can stick it the highest?

Schothorst Amersfoort

The Amersfoort bowl was built in 2006 and hadn't been looked after since. Our 6 step renovation process has made all concrete surfaces smoother than ever before. As part of the renovation we also fixed up the surrounding asphalt surfaces and the bank to flat connection leaving  the bowl in a better state than when it was just built.

Due to it's modular construction all connecting seams had either come loose, were breaking apart or were completely missing rendering the bowl impossible to skate. All concrete surfaces showed different stages of deterioration because of the combination of poor craftmanship, vandalism and graffiti cleaning.


The bowl as you'll find it at Schothorsterpark in Amersfoort, come by and shred it!

Ypenburg skatebowl Den Haag

Check out these images on the latest renovation & maintenance project that we have done in the past three weeks. Years of neglect had left the concrete of the Ypenburg skatepark in Den Haag in terrible condition making it nearly impossible to skate. Thanks to gemeente Den Haag we were able to refurbish all concrete and give this facility a second life.  We applied our special three step concrete polishing process and gave all concrete surfaces a sealing treatment to make it more weather and impact resistant. We did repair work & replaced all seams in between the modular elements of the bowl. Now the bowl & surrounding streetcourse are in better shape than they've ever been before and we look forward to having some sessions here!

These images below show the skatepark before we started our renovation project. The stones within the concrete mix protruded everywhere and most seams in the bowl had either come loose or were missing.  We would like to thank gemeente Den Haag for allowing us to give this skatepark a second life!


Reeshof bowl Tilburg

The Reeshof skatepark was built in 2002 and hadn't  received any maintenance since then. In 2016 the concrete was in such bad shape that stones were exposed everywhere making the skatepark virtually unskateable. Local BMX riders convinced their city to give the skatepark some long needed maintenance, halting the gradual destruction of a once ambitious skatepark. The city of Tilburg went the extra mile and added a little beginner streetcourse to make the restored Reeshof skatepark more diverse then before.

Concrete Matters restored all the concrete in the skatepark, cleaning, grinding and polishing all riding surfaces. Additionally we repaired all cracks & holes and applied a sodium silicate solution to make the concrete more resistant to the abuse it is subject to. This complete renovation process has given this skatepark a second life and it now attracts skaters & children from the entire Brabant area once again. The overview pictures below show the result of the renovation process & the situation before Concrete Matters renovated the Reeshof skatepark.
