Urban sports take center stage in the 2021 edition of Phe Festival

The sixth edition of Phe Festival strengthens its commitment to urban sports with the launch of Aqualia Phe Sports, a varied catalog of regional and local competitions, exhibitions and workshops in disciplines such as skateboarding, BMX and skating, all of which will be developed on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 August in various spaces in Puerto de la Cruz.

After a year of hiatus forced by the health crisis, the sports aspect of Phe Festival returns and sees its program increased, which complements the two days of live concerts. Thus, those who come to the San Antonio skatepark on Friday the 20th will be able to witness the regional skate and BMX championship. The tests will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the modalities of open skate, BMX pro, skate under 16 and BMK rookie, with prizes valued at more than 3,000 euros. 

Participation in the competition is open to skaters and riders from all over the Canary Islands and, for those residents of other islands who want to get closer to competing Phe Festival, the organization will bear the costs of transfer. Attendance as public is free with limited capacity.

The championships will have the presence of the Madrilenian viki gomez, the best flatlander in Spain, six times world champion, who has an outstanding record of gold medals in different European and world competitions. The rider, who started practicing at the age of 14, will be part of the jury of the championships of Aqualia Phe Sports and will offer an exhibition on Friday the 20th, at 5:00 p.m., at the San Antonio skatepark.

Due to force majeure, the III BMX Aqualia Water Jump, a spectacular display of acrobatic jumps into the sea, already traditional in the Phe Sports program, has been suspended. The organization of the festival will make every effort to recover this proposal for future editions.

Aqualia Phe Sports is developed in accordance with the values promoted by the festival that, beyond the mere exhibition, brings sport closer to the festival audience as well as to the citizens and visitors of Puerto de la Cruz with an outstanding range of experiences, a meeting point that generate sensory dynamics that benefit everyone. In this way, on Saturday the 21st, the celebration is planned at the Manolo Santaella sports center of the longboard workshops dancing & air freestyle by ride2gether, as well as roller dance, basic skating and roller jam, given by Canary Roller Girls. These activities, with free access, will be carried out scrupulously following health recommendations. Attendance at the workshops is free but places are limited as indicated on the website www.phefestival.es.

In its commitment to culture, art and its involvement with the city of Puerto de la Cruz, the creation of a mural will be promoted in the San Antonio skate park by the visual artist Raiber González, which represents a transversal proposal to recover community spaces through cultural actions.

Aqualia Phe Sports is an activity for the development of urban actions of Phe Festival, organized and directed by Phenomenal, Imoa Productions and Island BMX, and has the support of the City Council of Puerto de la Cruz through the Department of Sports, as well as the General Directorate of Youth of the Government of the Canary Islands and the Canarian Foundation of Youth Ideo. Featured partners and sponsors include Red Bull, Aqualia and Vans.
