Tim Yuen is the principal designer at Skate Sculpture, having designed many of WA’s most acclaimed skateparks including Port Kennedy, Forrestfield, York, Singleton and the recently completed Bina Parklands Skate Plaza (Balga).
Beginning skateboarding at the age of four, Tim is still an active skateboarder who frequently skates the parks he designs. This extra invested interest gives him the utmost dedication in ensuring Skate Sculpture designs reach full functionality, whilst positively contributing to the diversification of the Australian skatepark landscape.
Tim also oversees all aspects of the construction process, working closely with the client, design, and construction team to ensure all projects are completed on budget, within scope and up to code. He also likes to help on site with the construction team when extra hands are needed.
When he isn’t designing, building, or riding skateparks, Tim is strongly involved with the youth community on a regular basis. He volunteers at Beyond Skate to coach young emerging skateboarders, plus the adults only sessions on Thursday nights to help grownups find their feet on a skateboard. Tim also programs activities for the West Australian Juvenile Arthritis Camp, which he has been attending since he was 6 years old and programming for the past 15 years.
