Now corporate giants are vying to support the sport and will continue to help establish the growth of professional skateboarding in the country. Last January 15, 2014, the Mountain Dew Skate Park, developed by Ayala Land in partnership with Flux Designs Lab, We Legendary and Pepsi Co’s Mountain Dew was unveiled as it caters the growing skateboarding community in Metro Manila.

Designed by Flux Design Labs and ACEA, considered to be the first urban concrete skate park in the county, the Mountain Dew Skate Park boasts of an approximately 1,000-sqm skate area – perfect for shredding concrete ledges, grinding rails with 12 steps stairs plus it’s also great to leave a mark of thanelines at the pool. Skaters and skate enthusiasts will surely be stoked once they step in this park. The skate park is designed in 3 levels (beginner, intermediate and professional) to be able to cater different users.
Here are some highlights of the Soft Opening of the Mountain Dew Skate Park at Circuit Makati.
