At last, a concrete skatepark in Mexico City, man!! About time, oops!! I forgot to tell you, it took 2 years for it to be finished. After the construction got a total halt for almost a year, mainly beaurocracy and
political bull shit!!, it finally opened. Demo time!!!

Man!! It looks like John Cardiel, sniffs urethane dust or something…before he skates…?? He tore the place up!!
Big long crailslides, tail slides, and front sliders, miller flips. Max Schaff made long smith grinds, f.s. ollie, lipslides around the corners…
