Yeah, we’ve got readers in Sweden, but we’ve also go them in Brazil (Excuse me, Brasil) too.
My name is Luciano and I’m one of the people who make skateboarding run here in south of brasil (porto alegre,RS) we mantain a 30 year old skarte park named Swell Skate Camp, a skate park located in the very south of Brazil, its cold and it rains a LOT here ! Build by skateboardes back in the seventies, in the middle of nowhere , in the heart of a forest, it contains a snake run ended in a gnarly hand made 12ft bowl. Also here a mini ramp, and last week our NEW LOVE has born, a BRAND NEW BOWL due to the help of 25 skateboarders with some cash and an idea. Also theres a mountain board course. Its like a farm, perfect to chill and skate, just 20 miles form the city..
Well, we’ll be hosting an old school to event to celebrate with a INAUGURAL session . The OPENING day will be held on May 31st and June 1st.the event is the Vans Old Is Cool 2008. It’s gonna be the first event on our new pool/bowl whatever u call it and we will celebrate 30 years anniversary of the snake run course.
Guys like Bruno Brown and Cesinha Chaves will participate amongst others… place will be packed with all the oldschool skateboardes who started the sport in brazil.
You can get all the details here, assuming you speak Portuguese. OK, we’re going to load up the SnA staff into my van and see if we can make it down there in time…
