As planes are landing on Tenerife, the island vibes at Arico – El Bueno freeride presented by KebbeK Skateboards are setting in at the Ecovillaclub with “bellboy” Felix Rupitsch welcoming the guests.
Sleepy riders awoke this morning to a mini ramp overlooking the sea.
Everyone is excited as setups are readied and wheels are packed.
With good forecasts predicted all week the pool is going to come in handy. The Dutch contingent are camped out beside the pool, this is the first sunshine they have seen in a long time.
Close to the hotel is an abandoned Leper colony. Riders today explored, filming lines through the buildings and warming their legs up for the week.
With bars and cafes just ten minutes away from the hotel happy riders can be found scattered across the cafes in search of food and wi-fi.
BigMountainSkate‘s reputation for creating a pop up paradise has been upkept at El Bueno. Sure the hotel is smaller than expected but the rest is perfect.
