About

An open contest in the new skatepark at Aranya Resort, located in the northern Chinese city of Qinhuangdao, three hours east of Beijing. There will also be a bowl contest, mini-ramp jams, and best tricks. The city of Qinhuangdao was the venue for the first appearance of international skaters in China in the mid-1990s, featuring Steve Caballero and Mike V, and others. The Aranya community houses thousands of visitors in a peaceful town with hotels, homes, and residences, across five-square-kilometers. The contest is open to invites from APAC’s finest skaters, alongside contests for some of China’s best up-and-coming rookies.
