At the town plaza decorated by a figure of a carabao, teenaged and children skateboarders took turns in hurdling obstacles like the ledge and rail unmindful of the hot afternoon sun. Some 400 skateboarders all over Bataan joined the affair.
Aside from skateboarding that thrilled many residents especially the youth, 36 tattoo artists showed their talent. Thirteen youth bands coming from various areas in Bataan provided entertainment in the evening. Samal Mayor Gene dela Fuente is among the sponsors of the occasion.
Patrick Arvin Salmorin, Mico Kevin Salmorin; Dylan Malibiran House, son of Mayor dela Fuente and officers of Samal Skate Crew under Bataan Skateboarding organized the event called “Sanib Puwersa”. Patrick Salmorin said the event aside from giving entertainment, aimed to drive especially the youth away from illegal drugs.
