Skateparks in India: Goa, Bangalore, Pondicherry

Skateparks in India

There are a lot of people in India (locals and foreigners) who REALLY wish there was a skatepark in the country. It’s hard to believe but most probably there’s not a single skatepark in the whole of India.

There used to be private but a good skatepark (ska8goa) in Goa, but it’s been closed too due to various reasons. There is some speculation that a skatepark either exists in Pondicherry or is under construction, no confirmation as of now. Some tourists have been known to skate in Bangalore too, but there’s no idea where they actually do.

If you are a skateboarder in India, please comment and share you ideas about the skateboarding scene in India. Is there any skatepark in India, or there’s none?

    • sowmya says:

      Mohit,there is a skatepark in bangalore off Sarjapur road where i,ve been taking my son for the four days. it’s strictly for skateboards…no inlines or bmx !!

      • aman firoz says:

      • Mounil says:

        Can you pls share the contact details of the Sarjapur road Skatepark..Thanks.

        • Nick says:

          The address is 75 Kasanavahalli Road
          off Sajapur Road, take a right after Total Mall and look for Play X Games Arena
          It was never finished very well, the owner didn’t seem that interested in having it done right, but its there and theres a good crew of locals skating regularly!

    well i’m getting together as many skaters as possible in bombay and i think we’re getting about 30, maybe even 35 skaters. im think the numbers going to keep growing cause everytime we meet more and more people wanna join. plus a few of us teach kids. like i teach 12 kids.
    basically what im trying to say is, i think if we can get enough people involved,we can get a small kinda park made, we’ve got the plans designed it…we’ve even made a few smal ramps in the past. but as of now we have no where to put them so we;re giong to keep looking

    • seth says:

  3. Omkar says:

    i am a ska8board lover. i love to do skateboarding but there are no places in mumbai (thane) where i can skateboard. there are so many skateboard lovers in this city. but there are no places or parks for skateboarding. you may not believe but its truth that there is not a single skateboarding park in india. SOME ACTION MUST BE TAKEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • samson says:

      Dude even me am staying in thane ….n I haven’t skate for a while .I would like 2 join u bro ..

      • Arindum says:

        I wish MCGM build a Skatepark for Good … Every other Country got a couple of Skateparks in every town & Cities … Why no Skateparks in Mumbai .. Why don’t they build a Skatepark Instead of a Stupid Recreation Park & Garden … At least Security guards & Cops won’t show up when Skating .. Don’t understand Why India Got no Proper Skatepark ? …

        • Arindum says:

          Man … I would love to Skate for Real instead of playing Skate 3 in PS 3 … If there is a Skatepark , atleast kids will come out and Skate .. instead of sitting in front of PC & video games :-/

  4. Yan says:

    I am from Bangalore. I have two skateboards but nowhere to skate but the terrace. I am sure we can have skaters from India competing in X games if facilities are provided. Building a skatepark in an urban setting is going to cost crores, we need the Govt. to do something about it.

  5. drew says:

    hey im a skater in india also! i was so surprised when i saw that their is actually other skaters here thats awseome! We definately need a skatepark here. its ridiculous to have a whole modern country with not a single skatepark. I think all the skaters of india, (foreign or indian) should come together and discuss this and try to see how much money we can give, raise, or get from our on pockets and others to build a skatepark somewhere in mumbai or delhi! please us as skaters need to act!

  6. drew says:

    oh and btw, YAN, crores is not accurate at all. as a matter of fact u can buy land in india and build ramps for much cheaper then ‘crores’. i am building a 14ft buy 4ft fun box on my roof and it is costing me about 5,000 rs. And you can find land here for as cheap as 20 lakhs. so i dont think this would be more then a 20 to 30 lakh project mabey a little more.

    • aditya says:

      dont go anywhere to spend ur mony all tough the i m here to corect u the found of skatepark association of india you can be a part of my association.

      • drew says:

        hey aditya cut out the crap. theirs no such thing as the skatepark association of india and stop writing it in reply to every comment on this page. Why dont you find something better to do then write fake stuff on serious websites peace looser

        • aditya says:

  7. seth says:

    india needs a skate park

  8. rohit says:

    if india could get a lot of skaters then we could build a really nice skate park that would cost about 25 lachks to build

    • seth says:

      rohit you are an idiot i have a fun box and a qutar pipe built on my roof they were both built out of wood the quter pipe is really fun to skate board on and the fun box is too

      • drew says:

        doesnt anyone at least no any skate spots around delhi. i mean i would be very happy to fin like a 4 or 5 set or a little rail or anything in this place!

      • Ken Weiss says:

        Seth,

        You mention that you have a quarterpipe and funbox made out of wood on your roof. I am in the US and have some friends going to New Dehli in a few months to build some ramps for a friend there. The friend knows how to skate but doesn’t know anything about where to get lumber and plywood to build them. Are there stores there that anyone can go to buy lumber and plywood for ramps? Is it expensive there? I would appreciate any information you can give me about purchasing the lumber and plywood there.

        Thanks,
        Ken Weiss

  14. Steve says:

    Hey little sk8er brothers… it is good to see there is some interest in skateboarding developing here! Finally! I am starting a sk8 company, importing quality boards… should be available by mid-November.

    I have been skating here in Delhi for years… and now that the monsoon is over we can start up again. I know some decent places to skate, but a ramp and eventually a park would be great. Contact me if you are interested to sk8 or want to buy a board… 180con@gmail.com See you later.

  46. YAMATO ramps Germany says:

    Hi,

    We, Robin and Arne from Germany, have been traveling and skated around India for a few weeks now and so far we have not come across
    skateparks. After doing some research we found out that there is the wish from local skaters to have skateparks in various towns. Every city with a skate scene should at least have one skatepark, especially in metropolitan areas like Delhi or Mumbai etc and local governments are responsible to provide these facilities as long as there are these needs!
    In the past few days we put the idea in our head to initiate the construction of skateparks in India. If you think this is a crazy idea, impossible to realize, please let us know, so we don’t start
    wasting our time…

    Our story (also check http://2erskate.de/):
    In our city called Hanover in Germany, there was also no proper place to skate. We have really good street spots but due to common troubles
    we also needed a place that we could have to ourselves, where we could be sure that we could skate whenever we wanted to. Because nothing
    happened and the local government didn’t come up with an acceptable solution, we started to build ramps on our own in a deserted industrial area. From the first curb that we build five years ago, it
    quickly became our own park that grew faster than we could have ever imagined. Within the past five years our skatepark became legal status
    with us being in charge. We became the voice of skaters in our area and finally arranged the construction of a concrete skatepark founded
    by the government.
    While our DIY project is still growing, we decided to quit our jobs and set up a skatepark construction company based on the experience we
    made. Our goal is to build awesome skateparks in coherence with local needs. We are a young enthusiastic team of talented individuals with
    experience in building and designing skateparks, getting in touch with and communication with governments, fundraising, sponsoring and
    logistics. Ever since we decided to professionally build parks, we became YAMATO ramps.

    It would be nice to get a response from you and to get in touch with you in order to learn more from Indian skaters and if possible get some projects started for building skateparks in India. We are still here so please don’t hesitated to give us a call or write back (we will be in Mumbai from end of March to 5th of April).

    Nr. 7742527384 (this number is valid until 5th of April, Robin will answer)
    email: kontakt(at)yamatoramps.de

    We are quite stoked about this so we will spread this email in a few directions around India.

    Take care and talk to you later,

    Robin and Arne
    YAMATO ramps int.
