“Hi, I’m Dr. Nick DiNubile. I am an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and my son is an avid skateboarder. For me safety is the biggest priority. He always wears his helmet and all his pads. Also, when it came time to get a ramp for our driveway, I did my research. Freshpark was the clear choice. Freshpark ramps and equipment are so well made. They are not only solid and sturdy, but are easily assembled and remarkably portable to move about and for storage.
As a company they also do tremendous charity work with a commitment to keeping kids both active and safe especially at risk, inner city children. If both safety and quality are your priority call Freshpark. “

Freshpark is the Worlds leader in portable, foldable action sports obstacles. The all new design is more durable and solid than ever. Not only is it the only foldable ramp on the market, it is warrantied for a lifetime against manufacturer defects in construction of the frames. Wood halfpipes rot, and the top sheets, even if skinned in the expensive composites fall apart after a short time when exposed to common weather. Wood ramps are extremely hard to take apart and sell if you ever tire of them as well. Freshpark halfpipes on the other hand can be set up or taken down as needed. The resale value is second to none for home obstacles and they can easilly be shipped anywhere thanks to the folding compact design.Read More
