Adding to its exciting line-up of action sports initiatives, XDubai has announced the unveiling of a dynamic community skatepark to open starting January 15, 2016. Developed on a picturesque beachfront location, the facility will be the largest multi-faceted skatepark in the UAE and will be XDubai’s first infrastructure development project aimed at offering a central community hub for sport events and competitions.
Ismaeil Al Hashmi, Managing Director of XDubai, commented,
“We developed the XDubai Skatepark with a vision to create a dedicated state-of-the-art facility for skateboarders in the emirate and from around the world who come to Dubai. With its striking aesthetics and contemporary design, we are confident that the facility will become one of the most iconic and buzzing hubs in the emirate. Besides skateboarders, BMXers, inline skaters and scooter riders will also have a destination where they can train and develop their skills.”
The 3,100m2 skatepark (pictured above) caters to both novice and professional skateboarders with its multiple specifically-tailored skate areas. With unique street elements, obstacles and transition flow areas such as hubbas, pole jams, up-down rails, soft-ended walls and many more, beginners and experienced skateboarders alike will have the perfect opportunity to learn and develop their skills.
The biggest attraction within the park is the XBowl for professional skaters, which features a challenging 3.2m deep drop with a 2.1 shallow end. Built to world-class standards, the XDubai Skatepark with its 29 different elements for skaters, rivals some of the best locations in traditional skateboarding destinations.
Conceptualised by Convic, the premier global youth facility and active space design and construction company, XDubai’s skatepark will be the perfect place for performing ollies, kick flips, aerial grabs and earn some serious airtime!
Simon Oxenham, Managing Director of Convic said,
“Of the over 600 skateparks Convic has worked on around the world, the XDubai Skatepark truly stands out and is special for many reasons. The unique architectural appeal of this iconic facility combined with the beachfront location and world class features will make Dubai an instantly recognizable destination on the world’s skating map. I have no doubt that the XDubai Skatepark is one of the best and most beautiful skateparks on the planet”.
