SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - The PRINCE OF PUERTO RICO event, presented by The Sheckler Foundation, is an AM Contest and Pro Demo by Manny Santiago, Dave Bachinsky, Jordan Hoffart, Felix Arguelles, Fico Rodz, Jonny Hernandez and Diego Najera at the Ponce Skate Plaza on Saturday, December 14, 2013. The AM contest will give local skateboarders a chance to compete for the PRINCE OF PUERTO RICO title and take home $2,000 in cash and prizes.
While AM contents are common in the United States, they are more rare in Puerto Rico making it harder for up-and-coming skateboarders to gain exposure. Manny Santiago created this event three years ago to create opportunities for the youth in the country his family comes from through skateboarding.
