The Shred Indoor Skatepark - Cape Town
First-time to pro, unique Birthday Parties and one of the best bowls in the country at The Shred Indoor Skatepark. The Shred is the only public indoor skatepark in South Africa.
The Shred are constantly evolving the park with the addition of new obstacles and fun spaces.
From night sessions to one-on-one lessons, events and private sessions, it’s always a great family vibe where anyone is welcome.
Get lessons from expert skaters, throw a gnarly birthday party, check out the wall made from broken decks, or meet the skate park’s furry mascots, Ollie, Frankie and Marley. You can also take a break and grab a toastie with your Deluxe coffee or pop into the Baseline skate shop for some new gear.
And the best part is, no amount of summer wind or wintry rain can keep you away from Cape Town’s premium indoor skate park. Beginners to pros – all are welcome at The Shred in Paarden Eiland.
SKATEBOARDING IS IN THEIR BLOOD
Marc Baker and Jamie O'Brien opened The Shred in 2015 and have been skating and building ramps for over 25 years. Jamie has dedicated his life to skateboarding, from producing skateboard videos to building his own skate brand, Dope Industries clothing, as well as running a casting agency called Got Skills.
Besides several other ventures, Marc has gained a lot of experience through working with California Skateparks (one of the world’s biggest brands in skate park design and construction) over the last ten years, helping build parks for events such as the X Games, Vans Park Series & the Dew Tour.
Their vision is to have a safe place for parents to leave their kids, and a park that is constantly evolving to avoid boredom. The park is built out of wood and concrete (the bowl is concrete).
“After years of watching the City of Cape Town build badly designed and constructed skateparks with no skater input, Marc & Jamie decided to open an indoor skatepark,” says General Manager James Plumstead, also known as Jack. “They wanted to set a standard and showcase their workmanship and give the skateboarders a safe, well-built facility close to the CBD.”
A FUN SPOT FOR BIRTHDAY PARTIES
The Shred hosts loads of birthday parties and has a few packages to choose from, which include an instructor, balloons, a skateboard birthday cake and a professionally edited video (depending on which package you choose). Parents can relax in the Eiland Eatery for a bite to eat or in the coffee shop for a good cup of java if they need a break from their children or the noise. We also have another space (a games room) alongside the park where you can hang out and watch too. The Shred also hosts various events and special days, such as girls-only sessions and night sessions for the core skaters, but there’s more of a family vibe on weekends and holidays.
GET A SKATING LESSON FROM AN EXPERT
The Shred offers lessons for all ages and it's always one-on-one. A more personal experience works better than large groups. Our lessons are headed up by Judo School of Skateboarding who we collaborate with to give you a professional customised learning experience. Judo is a talented skater too. He is amazing with the kids and they always come back for more as they see their skills improving. Lessons are carried out all over the park, depending on the age and skill level of the rider. The outside area is popular with the younger kids as it has smaller obstacles. Check out our website for prices and the Availability Request Form.
