So this is the official thread for my CAP series "Eastborough". After being semi annoyed of port carverton and giving myself enough time to get comfortable with the CAP editing system I've decided to design my own city piece by piece. This thread will include the different parts of the city ETC. Everyone's welcome to comment. Eastborough is the brother city of SV/NSV, it's on the east coast and is home to alot of grimey D.I.Y. spots and some beautiful plazas, the city has had an alarmingly high crime rate for the past 20 years, so the police and security stopped targeting skateboarders so they could focus on crime. It's separated into 4 different sections
Irvine is right by city hall, and for the most part has remained unchanged from the day it was built and serves as the historical district and a tourist trap. The Greensburg is half occupied warehouses and companies the other half is yuppie paradise. The older warehouses make great studio lofts for rich kids while the garages and loading docks make great spots for skaters. Eastborough City is an island off of the coast but is home to all of the high rise buildings and condos. Finally there's Lynchester, the rougher part of Eastborough, lots of apartment complexes older skate spots and the Lynchester Recreational Center Skatepark. (LRC)
The following links will lead you to the parks.
Description:City Hall is the forbidden fruit of eastborough, there is no way of getting in there without getting mauled by security. However, since the president is in town it's the perfect time to skate! Get your hammers on!
Description:Van Buren is the most dangerous neighborhood in Eastboro, it's occupied by nothing but ex gang members, drug dealers and more recently skateboarders. There's a lot to do and no security. Make it pretty!
Description:In the bustling heart of Lynchester lies LRC. The famed host of the AM Slam, Eastborough's Annual Amateur Skateboarding competition. Most of the participants of the contest know the layout of the park like the back of their hands, because this is the most frequented skatepark in the city. A local hotspot, mostly because it's free and the Rec Center is right next door.
Description:Located a few blocks away from the infamous Van Buren Houses, lynchester high is not known for its educational system, it's known for its lax school security that allows for people to hop the fence and skate the place to bits. Loads of video parts have been shot here, so most people just come here for a laid back session.
Description: Thanks to iNH buying out the old public storage warehouse in Greensburg, Ohmidineffect had the opportunity to build an entire indoor skatepark for iNH and the general public to skate. Loaded with a variety of different obstacles to skate iNHQ is a great place to get comfortable with a trick before you try it out in the streets, and a great place to hide out on a rainy day.
Location: Eastborough City
Description: EFC is a taboo spot during the day but once the sunsets its a skaters paradise, filled with different things to hit in billions of different ways people find themselves sleeping during the day and skating EFC all night long, security free.
Location: Edge of Lynchester
Description: The boondocks is home to "The Yard" a city sanctioned D.I.Y. spot for skateboarders around Eastborough. Every skater in the city makes the pilgrimage to this skate mecca preferably as soon as they start skating. The spot has sparked the careers of many skaters. One of the few skateparks in the city that you can almost always spot a pro in without there being a competition.
Location: South Greensburg
Description: Northridge is where alot of skaters pick up the basics of skateboarding, there are plenty of spots scattered across the neighborhood as well as "The Pit" A crust punk squatter house/ D.I.Y. spot.
Location: Eastborough City (Downtown)
Description: Stop and Go is a huge parkade that rarely gets frequented because of the fact that a few blocks away there's a cheaper automated parkade that is free of skateboarders, thus making it the perfect place to skate.
Location: Somewhere in Lynchester
Description: The Clinic is the now public training facility by CNBS and Lakai Footwear. Originally invite only, the owner decided that it'd be cool to let the locals shred it every now and then, but the actual LOCATION remains on a need to know basis people just know it's in lynchester.
Description: The famed Fairbank Skatepark is one of the first skateparks built in Eastborough. When the skateboarding boom hit, the kids would skate all over the city and ruin property so Fairbank was built to give them a place to skate.
Location: Eastborough City (Downtown)
Description: The famous Mariana terminal is a meeting point for most people going shopping and hanging out in the city, but it's also the hub for EBC skateboarding, people will skate this spot for hours and never leave because security is so lax.
Location: Lynchester (The Boondocks)
Description: The old ditches are by the edge of town, it's where Lynchester meets the wealthy Suburban district. The city was trying to build a new skatepark for the area but they ran out of funding midway, the ditched project provides access to the backwood drainage ditch systems that have long since been abandoned.
Location: Greensburg/Eastborough City (The Washington Tunnel)
Description: The Wash Gap, The Tunnel Gap, Bum Blaster, Runoff Gap. The gap in front of the Greensburg entrance to the Washington Tunnel has been called many things by different skaters but it's been sessioned for years. The area around it has it's fair share of spots but most people only come to this part of town to huck themselves over the legendary gap.
MORE TO COME.
