Converse Fix to Ride was born six years ago in order to fix and recover abandoned spaces and return them to the community so you can continue practicing skate.

For this edition, we chose the legendary bowl of the 80s of the Brusquitas Neighborhood. This simulates bowl Californian pools that were used in the 70's, and requires a high level of riders to walk it.

Besides being repaired each year, this space is operated by different artists. This time the charge of this task was Patricio Pascale speaking the bowl and turned it into a watermelon.
