In the Rookie, Infantile and sub-16 categories, Héctor González, Paula Peña and Félix Socorro climbed the steps. In skate, the second and third classified were Jorge García and Raúl Hans in Open and Pablo Martín and Aaron Abreu in sub-16. In the first category, Kehiny Ojeda, Jonathan Rodríguez and Daniel Álvarez were also rewarded for their fourth, fifth and sixth prizes.
The tests took place between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. and the prizes distributed consisted of an economic prize for the first three classified in the Elite and Open categories and sports equipment for the rest of the classifieds.
The large public attending was able to verify the high level of the competitors, in a day that left great moments and that confirms the growing popularity of this type of sports among the youngest. Tomorrow, Phe Festival has scheduled a roller dance exhibition at the fishing dock by Canary Roller Dance, striking waterline tricks in a slackline tape with the Slackline Association and also the return of one of the most fun and anticipated shows, the III BMX Aqualia Water Jump, which will return to Puerto de la Cruz after a year of absence.
