Hickam Skate Hangar

900 Hangar Ave, Bldg 2065
Hickam AFB, HI 96853


The Hickam Skate Hangar was designated for skateboarding during the mid eighties by the base.  Soon thereafter, portable ramps were brought in my the local skaters... quite a few came and went... not too long later, Hickam Youth Programs organized the park with a few donations of ramps;  after a Powell Skate Demo at the Pearl Harbors Richardson Field a vert ramp soon appeared, as well as some street course items donated after a contest held by Town & Country.  In the late eighties, some material was bought to build a mini ramp which later turned into a mini-ramp/spine.  The vert got a facelift in width after a rollerblade demo at Aloha Tower during the mid nineties.... In 1999 the street course received a renovation/ expansion, the mini spine was torn down and the keyhole bowl (DK Bowl) was built... soon thereafter the old vert-ramp was torn down and updated to 10ft transitions/12ft tall courtesy of the "All Girl Skate Jam" which was a Pro Event on the North Shore of Oahu.  In 2002, the 4ft mini was destroyed as well as the old shack to make room for the mini-bowl.  With almost the demise of the park by the end of 2005 due to financial & space availability, decisions were made to consign out the park to a concessionaire in the hopes to uplift the park once again... In late 2006, the street course was re-vamped, bowls spruced up and plans on a new vert-ramp... the park re-opened it's doors in Dec 2006 under BDK Skate as the concessionaire for Hickam Youth Programs and we hope the rest will go down in the history books of skating.
