Skateboarding ready to shine at Madrid Urban Sports. Best skateboarders are coming to Madrid.
14/09/2021
  • Madrid Río-Matadero will host the skateboarding competitions during October 9 and 10.
  • Street and Bowl are the two confirmed major competitions. Skateboarding will be the focus for the first edition ever in Madrid.

 

Madrid is a synonym for skateboarding. Spain’s capital has one of the greatest skateboarding scenes across Europe, and is a place where you can actually enjoy really good vibes skating with the locals.

Some of the best national names of the moment have come from Madrid, and Madrid Urban Sports arrives in order to bring them that big skate festival the city needed for years.

From 8 to 10 October the best national skaters will meet in Madrid Rio-Matadero trying to fight for the first medals ever in this event’s history. But they won’t be alone, because we are building an international skaters dream team which will be plenty of favorites for the win.

¿Street or Bowl?

2021 marked a historic milestone for the sport after its inclusion in the official program of the Tokyo Olympics held last August. These Olympics showed that the level of women’s skateboarding has raised the bar and that they give equal or more spectacle than men in a skatepark.

Madrid Urban Sports will include women’s skateboarding competitions in both modalities and will also have the same prize pool as the men’s category for the best classified.

So that means that Madrid Río-Matadero will host 4 skateboarding competitions next October.

Equality in all competitions
