Maloof D.C. Permanent Skatepark

This is HUGE for the DC skate scene.  Shouts to Darren Harper for putting me on:

Maloof Skateboarding and Events DC, the official convention and sports authority dedicated to attracting premier events to the District, today announced a multi-year agreement to host the Maloof Money Cup, presented by Vans, on a world-class skate park to be built on the RFK Stadium Festival Grounds. This skate park, to be named Maloof Cup Park, will host the world’s best professional skateboarders at the inaugural Maloof Money Cup D.C. September 3-4. Tickets for Maloof Money Cup D.C. are on sale now at ticketmaster.com.

Designed by Pro Skater Geoff Rowley and Joe Ciaglia’s team at California Skateparks, the15,000-square-foot skate park is the first major skate park in Washington, D.C. and is inspired by Freedom Plaza and the architecture up and down Pennsylvania Avenue.

“It was important for us to take design elements from real D.C. skate spots and try to replicate them and hopefully complement them as much as possible,” said Rowley.  “The local skaters will recognize some of these influences like the Freedom Plaza Ledges and the Golden Rail made famous by legendary locals like Pepe Martinez, Chris Hall and many more original D.C.rippers,” said Rowley.
