The Elliot Sloan Mega Ramp
Elliot Sloan’s passion for big air skateboarding led to the creation of his “Mega Park”, a colossal undertaking that took many years to complete.
According to Sloan, the idea for the park came several years ago when he received parts of a ramp from Tony Hawk.
Hawk had just used the ramp on his tour but it was sitting in a warehouse and he needed to make some space, so Elliot Sloan took it off his hands.
The ramp was assembled and then made bigger.
As it grew, it eventually expanded into a massive park, with Sloan’s dream becoming realized in the spring of 2020.
The Mega Park was unveiled via a swooping bird’s-eye video followed by some footage of Elliot Sloan skating on it.
In the months that followed, the park welcomed a number of other guests and you can find footage of them on YouTube.
One of those riders was the young Sky Brown, a Japanese-British skater who spends her time between Japan and the US but represented Team GB at the Olympics, winning a bronze medal.
Brown was just 12-years-old at the time she skated the Mega Park.
Where Is the Mega Park?
The Mega Park is located on Elliot Sloan’s private compound in Vista, California.
It means that you can’t just grab your board and try the park out for yourself.
