Grinding Edge has been the butthole of skateparks for quite some time. I’ve always heard of rumors of Tony Hawk saying “it’s the worse skatepark I’ve ever been to.” I personally wrote it off as folklore until the latest episode of The Nine Club came out this morning. In it, Tony explains his experience visiting a park just outside of Chicago, and how it’s poor design inspired him to start a foundation that helped over 500 towns build a skatepark.
