Scootering in Marseille Skatepark, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur France
Motorized Scootering is a sport that in its essence cannot be called as extreme. The extreme part comes on the way you decide to use this two wheeled engine. One of the most extreme ways to practice motorized scootering is in a skate-park and the best place to do that is in Marseille at the Marseille or Prado Skate-park.
This particular park is very famous, due to its legendary bowl that in some parts reaches at 2.7 m /8.1 ft depth. The park has first opened its gates in 1991 but not until 2010, had it been painted with these amazing graffiti art forms, shaping its entire concrete surface.
The park was featured after a video game the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 and hosted until these days many sports events, with performances by many skating stars and sponsored by a surfing apparel company. It is the biggest outdoor park in France and the biggest attraction among foreigners who wanted to try their skills especially English, Belgians, Germans, Dutch, Spanish Americans and Norwegians.
Besides the mythical bowl, the park also provides with a vert ramp, mini ramps and a bank. Imagine all these features being ridden with a motorized scooter! Come on and try this amazing bowl on your motorized scooter and boost your adrenaline levels. It is totally worth it!
