Rebirth of Mondaka indoor DIY skatepark

“The people from Vigo, Galicia searched for a place to skate indoors for more than a year. The place was in ship near Balenario de Mondariz. With a lot of work and investment they built a mini ramp with a spine and some street modules. But a few months ago things got really ugly with legal matters and the owner closed the ship. After some negotiations and collecting some money the place has been reborn with force and the mini had an extension added to it. To celebrate, people were summoned for the first contest.

Some twenty participants distributed in groups made a thousand and one tricks and there was atmosphere of friends and constant energy. After completing and delivering prizes there was concert to close the event in style. Thumbs up to these people!”

Original text in Spanish:
La gente de Vigo se buscó la vida para patinar a cubierto hace algo mas de un año. El lugar fue una nave cercana a Mondariz Balenario, alli con mucho trabajo e inversión crearon una mini con spine y algunos módulos de street. Pero hace unos meses la cosa se puso fea por lo legal y el dueño cerró la nave. Tras unas negociaciones y reunir más dinero el lugar ha renacido con más fuerza y se ha cerrado la mini con una extension. Para celebrarlo se convocó a la gente a este primer campeonato.

Unos veinte participantes distribuidos en grupos hicieron mil y un trucos y hubo ambiente de colegueo y engorile constante. Tras terminar y entregar los premios conciertos para cerrar el evento a lo grande. Un diez para esta gente! – Javier Saavedra
