Skate plaza

Tetuán Skate Plaza is situated in the Rodríguez Sahagún Park, between Sinesio Delgado Street and Miramelindos Street in Madrid. It’s often called Tetuán or Tetu and is one of the spots in the Spanish capital, along with Hortaleza, Escombro Park and Legazpi, where you’ll find more of a skater scene. The plaza was constructed in 2009 and has a polished tiled floor which means the surface is quite slippery. There are ledges on the central manual pad, which is very large and is a variation from the typical skatepark concept of a pyramid in the centre, which give it more of a street feel. There are 11 stairs, inclined flats, a flatrail, four sets of 3 flat 4 stairs with handrails of different dimensions and a brick quarter with pool coping.

Events like the Redbull Manny Mania, Lazylegs 2014, Matrioskas Ollie, Element Make It Count, Volcom Wild In The Parks plus many more have been held there as well as demos by big international teams like Adidas, Supra, èS and others. It’s clearly a reference for Spanish skateboarding and also increasingly worldwide.

The best months to visit Madrid are March, April, May, September and October. However it’s not just the weather you’ll need to think about as you’ll also need to be careful with the authorities in some places.

The time of day is also important as if you go in the morning, there will be hardly any people. At midday you’re more likely to coincide with skaters who are making the most of their lunch hour to get a session in, like Gabi and Rodrigo Mena from Skateland or Borja and Pablo García from Welcome, legendary skaters from Madrid whose friendliness has no limits. In the afternoons it usually gets busy with young locals and foreigners who quite often fill the park. During the weekends it’s likely to be busy at any time during the weekends.
