Montauk Skatepark Overview
The town of Montauk, New York, is located at the northern end of Long Island and has a long history of surf and skate culture. The original Montauk skatepark was built in 1999, and designed by New York skate legend Andy Kessler, who died in 2009.
While the park was much loved, it was in rough condition after 20 years of exposure to coastal air and hard skating and was redesigned and expanded in 2022. Funding for the renovation came from the city and private fundraising organized by the Montauk Skateboard Coalition
American Ramp Company designed the original 9,000 square feet of the park to align with Kessler’s original plans while adding a 7,000-foot expansion. Their sister company Pivot Custom handled the construction.
The park is slated to open in the summer of 2022. The park includes an impressive array of features, all within view of the Atlantic Ocean.
The new and improved Montauk Skatepark includes two large bowls, one a peanut-shaped backyard pool and the other a butterfly-shaped flow bowl. A snake run from the street plaza around the outside of the peanut bowl and into another flow bowl.
A street plaza completes the park, with a variety of street skating/street park features. These include quarterpipes, banks, hubbas, a volcano, ledges, and several rails.
