Converse skatepark opening – Lima, Peru

Four months of intense building were needed to build the first skatepark with such a huge bowl in Perú and in the whole subcontinent, except Brazil. The skatepark was ready to be named: Converse Skatepark, 100% financed by the big company, and ready to be inaugurated: the company wanted things to be done the great way, inviting three of its international riders – Rune Glifberg, Mike Anderson and Renato Souza.
