Why not build the “perfect wave skate obstacle” in Eindhoven that every (skate)boarder wants to ride?
The 3D concrete printing (3DCP) technology allows more form freedom in design. Even natural shapes like waves can be reproduced.

We want to create obstacles for Urban Sports based on the concept that nature knows best.
Skateboarding as we know it, was probably born when surfers in California wanted something to do when there were no waves.
Much speaks for the use of 3D concrete printing to produce skate obstacles; it allows for more design freedom. Even made to measure or one-off forms are possible. Once a 3D file is created the design is (parametric) scaleable. The resulting objects fullfill all mechanical/physical requirements (like weather and vandalism proof, transportable and theft proof)
Through a modular set up endless configurations are possible for - for instance - pump tracks.
