Beginners, Intermediate & Experienced skaters

The concepts and models were fine so far, but I still felt that there needed to be a more substance behind my designs. Sketches, scale models, and words can only inform my design to a certain degree. I needed to look more closely at the ACT of skateboarding. I made a list of all the different skateboard tricks.


I could then associate the different types of tricks with different obstacles.

I could then categorise the tricks and obstacles into 3 main grading levels:

  1. Beginners ( blue box)
  2. Intermediate (yellow box)
  3. Experienced (red box)

We discussed this in class the other week and agreed that this will help direct the form of the objet. It would give me some limitations to the surfaces and scale of my design.
