Dear supporters, colleagues, friends, family, readers,
I came to volunteer in the „Pura Vida Skateboarding“ project which was founded by Christian Petzold and financially backed by the German skateaid association.
After to years of preparations, Petzi arrived in January to get everything settled before the construction crew would arrive. With the support of Nike and Carhartt eventually Jan Kliewer, Chet Childress, Al Partanen, Alex Irvine, Hjalte Halberg, Gabriel Engelke, Arne Fiehl, Florian Bösel Alexander Endrulat and more friends of Petzi arrived in San Isidro de El General to build up the concrete skate park with the help of the local skaters within around 6 weeks.
There were problems in finding a location, but with the help of a local politician there was a location found in the Barrio of Rosa Iris in the first couple of days of the stay of the crew.
