Sibbarp skatepark in Malmoe was built 2008 by Concreatures and Bryggeriet with special help from Pontus Alv and financed by Malmoe City and Carhartt. The skatepark is 900 m2 and filled with corners, banks, bumps, volcanos, viking blocks, wallride and smooth concrete all over. Malmoe have a strong D.I.Y scene that have had a huge impact on the city and it’s skate scene for almost 10 years and the D.I.Y spots are coming and going every year. Sibbarp Skatepark was mostly built with recycled material and is following in the D.I.Y footsteps. Located right by the sea this park is something out of the ordinary.”
