Mexico City – New Concrete and a Vans Demo

Mexico City
A large turnout for a Vans demo at their new concrete skatepark for the grand opening.

540° Skatepark Grand Opening, Mexico City – "Vans Demo"

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!!!

Big long crailslides, tail slides, and front sliders, miller flips.
