skate-1586100_1280Visit Puerto Peñasco’s new skate park with the one of the newest events in Mexico—El Pinacate Skate Fest 2016. This new skate park is built in conjunction with Levi Strauss to complete a new state of the art skate park that will be able to host events. Its inaugural event will be El Pinacate Skate Fest, in which local and international participants will compete for top prizes and the right to call themselves champions.

The Skate Park

The park is being built with professional competitions in mind, adding one of the newest tourist attractions in Mexico’s Puerto Penasco. The park will hope to attract additional tourism as well as create a new safe haven for locals and visitors alike. The park has been constructed to have all necessary aspects of a professional competition-level skate park, including half pipes, rails, ramps, and a signature volcano to help signify the park’s identity. The volcano ramp will reference the Pinacate, the natural world heritage site located near Puerto Peñasco.

The Competition

The specifics of the competition have not yet been released, but we have good knowledge on the prospective event. Hosts are looking to create an annual skate competition to attract international competitors. This generally means lots of intense competition, along with some great prizes. The event will split competitors according to age in different brackets, including intermediate, 15 and under, and 16 and above.
