Veteranos Mexico Skate Jam 4 in Mexico City

Words by John Aguilar and photos by Olga Aguilar

The Veteranos Mexico Skate Jam started in 2002 as a reunion of skaters from the 70’s, 80s’ and early 90’s who skated the few skateparks built in Mexico City, like Skatorama, Dogtown Skatepark, and Skate Inn. The skate jam provided an opportunity for old and new blood to congregate and skate and share stories and memories of those skatepark days.

On December 16th 2018 at the Rabioso Bowl in Mexico City, the 4th Veteranos Skate Jam was held, with a bowl jam contest. Old school punk band, Sedicion, from Guadalajara, also played a set.

Antinada – Aknez

Atinada opened for Sedicion, with a special cameo appearance from Aknez on vocals (former Massacre 68). A skate punk rock photo show was also held featuring photos by Olga Aguilar and Al Partanen.

The skate jam consisted of 3 divisions: young guns, girls and veterans, which had the most participants. Congratulations to Jhossan Rodriguez who took first place in the young guns category, and congrats to Veronica Zamudio who took the top honors in the girls division, and congratulations to Cuauhtemoc Dimas for placing first in the Veteranos division. 100% respect to all of the skaters that skated and participated.

Big thanks to Rabioso for letting us use the venue, thanks for the great pizza from Perro Negro and hamburgers from Mata Leon, which when added to brew and a bowl to skate in the heart of downtown Mexico City, definitely made for a one of a kind event!

Sangre nueva y vieja se congrego para compartir historias y memorias de aquellos días de la patineta.

El pasado 16 de Diciembre del 2018 se realizo el cuarto veteranos skate jam en Bowl del Rabioso en el centro de la ciudad de Mexico, se hizo un  concurso en formato jam, Punks de la vieja escuela Sedicion estaban presentes para tocar melodías para armar el Slam, La banda “Antinada” abrió para “Sedición” (Gdl) con un palomazo sorpresa con Azknez (Ex-Massacre 68).
