Shore Skatepark Bowl


SHORE SKATEPARK IS LOCATED IN PUNTA MITA, NAYARIT, MEXICO. IT IS OWNED,  BUILT AND MAINTAINED BY THE SURFER- SKATER FERNANDEZ FAMLIY:  LALO, EMILIO, IVAN AND CECI.

IN 2006, THE FAMILY TRADED A FISHING BOAT FOR THE LAND THAT SHORE SKATEPARK IS BUILT ON. IN THE BEGINNING THEY WERE GIFTED THEIR FIRST WOOD RAMP, WHICH WAS LATER TRADED FOR CONCRETE AND THE FAMILY BUILT THE FIRST AREA OF THE SKATEPARK 100% BY THEMSELVES.

BY 2010, THE FAMILY'S SKILLS HAD OUTGROWN THE SKATEPARK AND AN EXPANSION WAS NEEDED. THEY BUILT THE POCKET AND PUT CONCRETE ON THE FIRST FLAT SECTION, PLUS A LITTLE PYRAMID IN FRONT. EMILO LEARNED TO BUILD POOL COPING WITH A FRIEND FROM CALIFORNIA SKATEPARKS, SO THEY IMPLEMENTED THE CALIFORNIA STYLE THROUGHOUT THE PARK. 

IN 2012,  THE OJ WHEELS  TEAM (WHICH EMILIO WAS  A MEMBER)  CAME TO VISIT AND SKATE SHORE PARK FOR A FEW DAYS,  A SHORT TIME LATER THE TEAM  MANAGER ALEX HORN CAME BACK FOR  A FEW WEEKS AND  HELPED TO BUILD A NEW SMALL PUMP BUMP BUT ALWAYS WANTED TO BUILD MORE.

THE PARK HAS ATTRACTED A LOT BIG NAMES LIKE: OMAR HASSAN, CHET CHILDRESS, STEVE BAILEY, DANNY DICOLA, JUSTIN  FIGGY FIGEROA, JON DICKSON, ALEX HORN, CODY CHAPMAN, WES KREMER, PAT DUFFY, WILLIS KIMBELL, ERICK WINKOWSKI,  AND MARYUS SYVANEN. THIS PAST NOVEMBER TONY HAWK AND HIS SON RILEY PAID THE PARK A VISIT.

AFTER EACH EXPANSION, THE PARK BEGAN TO BE MORE AND MORE WELL KNOWN BY LOCALS AND THOSE SEEKING SKATE DESTINATION VACATIONS. THE PARK IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND ALL COSTS TO MAINTAIN AND EXPAND ARE PAID FOR BY THE FAMILY. BECAUSE OF THE GENEROSITY OF THE FAMILY, THE PARK HAS GROWN TO BE A FUN, SAFE PLACE FOR KIDS AND SKATERS TO COME AS WELL AS A TOURIST DESTINATION. 

NOW IT IS TIME FOR US TO GIVE BACK AND SHOW OUR APPRECIATION TO THE FERNANDEZ FAMILY. WE WANT TO HELP THEM CONTINUE TO GROW THIS PARK, THE ONLY ONE IN THE AREA, TO BE THE BEST IT CAN BE. OUR GOAL IS TO TAKE THE PARK TO PHASE 4: A CLOVER BOWL.

EVEN IF YOU CANT DONATE A PENNY, NO WORRIES, JUST SPREAD THE WORD AND SEND THIS LINK TO A FRIEND OR REPOST ON A SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLET PLEASE! THANKS FOR LOOKING AND SUPPORTING THIS RADICAL CAUSE. ANIMO!!!

* Our dream has always been to skate really good California style pools here in Mexico, and to get to share that experience with our local community would be amazing - Emilio Fernandez
