Here is some exciting news to spice up your Tuesday. This Saturday 18th April Iconx will host a kid’s skateboard bowl competition at the Shanghai Super Mega Park (SMP) – Asia’s biggest skate park! We cordially invite you and your family, your friends, and friends of friends to join us for Asia’s most extreme event this weekend, right here in Shanghai. Iconx has been hosting these competitions at the SMP park since 2006 and every one has been super-fun!
Come and see our top students in action from 10am to 11am in one of the most insane skate parks in the world. We will have amazing prize giveaways, including a Mi camera for 1st place! After the competition our friends at SMP will be providing entertainment until 6pm, including adult skateboard and BMX competitions. The Iconx team will also be there all day and we will have a booth with tunes, goodies, a raffle and of course there will be all day skateboard practice. To make this event even more delightful, entry is completely FREE.
For those who are unsure what a bowl is, we assure you that we are not talking about the device to eat cereal…. A bowl is a drained swimming pool which is pretty perfect for skateboarding. There are a number of bowl ramps at the SMP park and most are insanely big and scary, even for the professional skateboarders. Luckily there is also a mini bowl that is the shape of a peanut, which is perfect for skaters of all ages and 1st time bowl riders.
That’s right, there is a drained swimming pool in the shape of a peanut, designed for skating, and we will have a team of our students riding it hard! We are excited… we are very very excited! Please spread the word and be sure to arrive before 10am to show your support for our LITTLE RIPPERS! Also, remember that this bowl is designed for beginners so feel free to have a try. This is a warm up for the upcoming Kia World Extreme Games so get ready for an action packed couple of months!
Note: All of the Iconx crew will be at this event on so our Indoor Skate Park will NOT be open this Saturday 18th April.
