Skateboarders forced to improvise after skate park closes down

Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

They lost their skate park, but they haven't lost their zest for skateboarding. WLOX News found a group of skateboaders making do with the best they have on Friday night just north of Highway 90 in Gulfport.

More than a dozen skateboarders set up ramps and rails on an empty slab near Teagarden Road. They spent the night doing what they love, trying tricks on their boards. 

The skateboarders told us all they want to do is have fun.  They figured since no one was using this lot, they should turn it into a mini skateboarding paradise.
