Words and Photos by Olga Aguilar
The Pipila Bowl Skate Jam was held on August 29, 2015, in a municipality called Tlajomulco de Zuñiga in Guadalajara jal, México with 43 participants from across the country. This was one of the first events of this kind in the state since the demise of the ’70s era skate parks that closed at the beginning of the ’90s. The event was organized by Ignacio Heredia owner of Religion Skate, a skater whose upbringing was at well-known skateparks like the Skato Pistas Del Sol (bowls) and Parque Metalico (vert ramp) during the ’80s.
Guadalajara has a long history of skateboarding from the several concrete skateparks built in the ’70s and then having wood and metal mini ramps and vert ramps skateparks towards the beginning of the ’90s, which had visitors from all over the world including: Keith Meek, Salba, The Bones Brigade and Christian Hosoi to name a few.
The level of skateboarding at this event was so much more than expected since the bowl skatepark scene is so new to the younger generation, and shredding was to the max! Hopefully, this will not the be last event, and the Pipila Bowl Jam will have many years to come! Viva México Cabrones!
