National DIY Skateboard Festival in Puerto Vallarta

Presented by Build Ramps Not Walls, Puerto Vallarta will host the First National DIY Skateboard Festival, which will take place from December 6th to 8th, 2019 in the recently renovated skatepark of the Agustín Flores Contreras Sports Complex.


This sporting event will be attended by more than 150 participants from different parts of our country such as Mexico City, State of Mexico, Jalisco, Nayarit, Aguascalientes, Yucatán and Sonora, among others.


It will feature the categories open, feminine and child and the competitions will have professional judges to designate the winners, who will be evaluated by styles, difficulties and the speed that they print in their three-minute intervention.


Build Ramps Not Walls is a project led by a Mexican and American skate community based in Vallarta · Nayarit, which emerged as a creative proposal to build a skateboard ramp with the same materials that would be used for the alleged wall between Mexico and the United States.


With the DIY philosophy (Do It Yourself), this group of skaters built the Shore Skatepark, their first ramp park located in Punta de Mita. After their success and with the motivation to integrate the growing skate community in the destination, they presented a remodeling and expansion project for the park located in the sports complex to the Puerto Vallarta City Hall. Once approved, in just five weeks they concluded these new facilities that will serve to host this First National DIY Skateboard Festival.


If you want to be a participant and admire the national talent in this sport, its organizers (businesswoman Rebecca Scotti, professional skater Carlos Padilla and skater Edgar Llamas) have announced that admission to the event will be free and all activities will start at 11:00am.


You can find more details of the event on the social networks of Build Ramps Not Walls.

“Advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is an easy and direct way to reach all of the visitors and new residents that arrive to the destination. Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
