Rule Fest 3 – Mondaka DIY – Galicia, Spain

Mondaka DIY – Rules Fest – III

Last June was the third edition of Rule Fest at Mondaka DIY in back woods of Mondariz, near Vigo in Galicia, Spain. Sunny days, skating in the indoor wooden bowl with metal and pool coping, swimming down in the river, skater made arts and crafts, cheap beer, good people, funny times, ending with a punk rock show and another swim in the river to wash away the sweaty beer drenched weekend. Looking forward to Rule Fest 4, June 9th, 2018.

Chilling around the fire pit which didn’t need to be lit on this hot pre-summer day. The sun was blazing. Trips to the river were needed several times a day to cool down… Nine, Silvia, Javi, Ciso and friends.

Loca chica Alba decided to take it to the flat bottom for her run in the girls contest with some flat ground tricks… and some gnarly slams…. however she was easily defeated by ripper Silvia Serret.
