Lincoln City's Skate Park located in Kirtsis Park was originally constructed in 1999 by Dreamland Skateparks. Thrasher Magazine gave it a rating of "9 out of 10" and at the time was named the "gnarliest" skate park in America. There is a huge scene and support for the sport here in Lincoln City and what a better place to hold the Rip Ride Rally. The Invitational Skateboard Contest is this weekend, May 31st- June 2nd. It commemorates 20 years of the Lincoln City Skatepark and the lives of the late Preston Maigetter, Mark Hubbard and Jake Phelps. If you're looking for an exciting way to spend a gorgeous day on the coast, check out the sessions from some of the best in the sport.
