On October 3rd, a special corona version of the annual Gochu Skate event took place in Noreña, Asturias, a small town known for it’s pigs and Gochu fiesta where 100s of kilos of pork are given out to the inhabitants of the town for free. This year, because of the COV-19 pandemic, only five skaters could be part of the skateboarding action – the audience were limited and social distanced, contact tracing preparations were made with names and phone numbers for all attendees and participants, and of course, as is the law in Spain, mandatory masks for everyone, except the skaters while on the ramp. It rained all weekend but stopped moments before the demo started. Que suerte!
Hopefully next year the virus will not be continuing to ruin our fun and the contest can return in full swing, as well as the after skate concerts and with everyone wanting to attend will be able to join the Gochu skate party!
