Didal backs Red Bull skate park project


    WITH the support of Asian Games women’s street skateboarding champion Margielyn Arda Didal, Red Bull launched three days ago the Red Bull DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project to provide skateboard enthusiasts and their respective communities with funds to build their own skate parks.

    Classified in both team and individual categories, the program-cum-competition will run until Aug. 23 and the entries will submit their designs for the skate park that will be built in their own backyards.

    “This will enable them to hone their talents and showcase their skills in their own areas once their designs are chosen as the winner,” Red Bull said in a statement.

    Based on the competition guidelines, 15 team designs will be chosen and given a budget to build the skate park within 30 days after their selection and will be required to send a 60-second video where the proponents will display their skills.

    Red Bull endorser Didal, who bagged two gold medals in her 30th Southeast Asian Games debut at the Tagaytay skate park last December, will be the judge in selecting the top five team designs from the list that will get added financial support to develop their skate parks further.
