The Guajataca Downhill 2015 was no exception from awesome!!! This is my favorite event every year. Pack up the boards and baggies, ditch the cold January weather and take the quick puddle jump flight to the amazingly beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Once on the island make your way to one of the raddest skate towns on the planet, Quebradillas. These locals eat, sleep and breathe surfing and skateboarding. When it comes to downhill skateboarding they are clinical with their speed and precision. Again I was privileged and humbled to be apart of such an amazing event in the skateboarding community. Special thanks to Hector Valle “El Pajaro” and the Pirata Surf Club for creating another unforgettable event.
This year’s Guajataca Downhill was extra special for a number of reasons. The first being the addition to the Quebradillas skatepark contest. Situated amongst swaying palms over looking sapphire blue water; the Quebradillas skatepark is one of the greatest concrete parks you will ever come across. Complete with street sections and massive bowl sections this was the most anticipated event of the week and it did not disappoint. Shredders came from all over the world to escape lesser weather and enjoy all of the stoke Guajataca Downhill 2015 had to offer.
Another bonus this year was the celebration of Paul AKA Snake AKA PopLo 63rd birthday. Thanks to friendly locals like Cesy of Cesy Burger we made sure to party through the entire week. I have never felt more welcomed by anyone as I do from the boricuas desde Quebradillas.
Third Kind is so humbled and privileged to be a part of something this spectacular. The Guajataca Downhill 2015 was our second year sponsoring the event. Many stoked skaters won new boards and sick skateboard lights from Third Kind. We love giving back and we love giving back to nothing more than we do the Guajataca Downhill. It was awesome to meet new friends like Chris from Ionic Flux Lubricants and the guys from Hi5ber skateboards and Sector 9‘s Downhill Division.
Special shoutout to Third Kind’s downhill team to include Alexis “Troll” Rosa, Jorge Delgado and Giancarlo Perez. Watch all the Guajataca Downhill 2015 action HERE!!!« New Skateboard Light Model Debuted at Surf Expo 2015 : : Light up your Skateboard with Third Kind »
