8th Marisquiño contest in Vigo Spain

It’s good when there are people out there keeping me informed on a regular basis about events as sometimes some just slip right through those tiny e-mail holes and disappear.

Fredo is the man contacting me about this event in Vigo, Spain. He has been organizing it every year since 2000, starting off as a skate-only event and growing into an action sports event, but with a high level of skating. Just two years ago Javier Sarmiento and Rodrigo Teixeira were there and 2007 skaters from Argentina and Brazil took the podium.
