Ahhh, the wonderful world of fingerboarding.

I’ve wanted to create some DIY obstacles for a while, so I did some digging and compiled my favorite fingerboard skatepark ideas.

Because sometimes all we need is a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing.

Gritty Stairset

This brick-textured stair and ledge obstacle reflects the essence of a gritty, urban skate spot. The attention to detail is mind-blowing!

It’s an insanely realistic miniature world, from the weathered concrete to the circular lighting. The choice of faded blue tiles against orange bricks is a smart use of contrasting colors.

It captures a raw authenticity that’s functional and aesthetic af.

Concrete Wave Bank

Created by: u/clays327

This concrete wave bank comes to life under dramatic lighting. The meticulous craftsmanship, from the hand-welded fence to the grass/miniature plants, captures the authentic spirit of street skating. It makes me wanna get some night shredding sessions in.

The realism is truly unreal.

Urban Stairset

Created by: u/doopnap

Inspired by iconic spots like Hollywood 16 and Wallenberg, this one is a classic stair set mixed with a realistic brick motif. Detailed with signs of wear and decorative stickers, the piece showcases a raw, sunlit aesthetic with a handrail made from aluminum.

The authentic feel oozes from this spot.

DIY Street Park

Created by: u/Jackot45

This fingerboard skatepark has authentic street features, including a graffiti-splashed quarter-pipe and a detailed stair set. Realistic touches like a bridge with miniature trash cans and its polished concrete finish add to its lifelike appeal.

The park’s design is both aesthetically impressive and functionally engaging, offering a variety of challenges.

CNC Wood Skatepark

Created by: u/khmelic

This one was made using CNC machinery and then meticulously hand-sanded to enhance the flowing contours and natural wood grain.

The creator spent considerable effort in the design and construction, resulting in a series of ramps, bowls, and plateaus that offer diverse surfaces for tricks.

Granite Plaza

Created by: u/xxmacksxx

This plaza skatepark has a brick backdrop with a reflective floor that doubles the visual impact. Its features include a handrail, board rack, stones, graffiti-covered guard rail, and some perfectly placed greenery.

The level of detail must’ve taken forever to create.

Gritty Urban Spot

Created by: Commit Robbery

This fingerboard park captures the rawness of a gritty urban skate spot. Foam-cored concrete is thoughtfully splashed with graffiti and moss.

It’s a perfect blend of roughness mixed with precision hand-crafted artistry. Unlike most of the other fingerboard skateparks on this list, Commit Robbery takes on commissioned work.

Monochrome Skatepark

Created by: u/Sunnydaturtle

This sleek, monochrome skatepark design features quarter pipes and crisp red rails. The clean layout is strategic and spacious, offering a variety of angles and elements for technical fingerboarding tricks.

Definitely one of the cleanest on the list.

Flat Ground Court

Created by: u/GoonSqoon

A sleek basketball court-themed fingerboard skatepark. Made from locally sourced materials from a home improvement store for under $40. The wooden frame is decorated with a realistic brick pattern and the aluminum trim doubles as grinding rails.

And to add to it all, it’s equipped with drawer handles for portability.

Street/Vert Plaza

Created by: u/no-left-turns

Which do you prefer to fingerboard: street or vert? You don’t have to decide because this skatepark features both styles. A clean street section and multi-height halfpipe with a mid-sectioned spine/roller allow endless possibilities. The divider’s grass/circular lights are a clean touch.

A calming alternative to the plastic commercial tech deck skateparks.

Granite Park Plaza

Created by: u/xxmacksxx

A sleek, movable granite ledge provides a smooth surface for tricks, enhanced by carefully placed rocks and greenery. The park’s elements, including the rail, bench, and concrete barrier, can be repositioned for customized layouts, offering a dynamic fingerboarding experience.

Using affordable Home Depot tiles creates a premium feel without the high cost.
