A place that since its inception and over the years have developed a lot of activities in a self-managed way, since it is a busy farm, around music and skateboarding.
After a deep economic depression in the region of Pasaia at the time of the 80s, one of the many abandoned factories in the area, in the year 92 some old changing rooms of the well-known company of Campsa would become the place of meeting and some kids in the area. What was originally a place where we could meet, was slowly and with great effort becoming an important engine of activities in the area.
They resisted numerous eviction attempts until 10 years later there was no other option but to abandon it and look for a new one.
And since there is no harm that does not come well, this second location, very close to the previous one and also belonging to the same company, was the germ of the best Iberian skatepark built under the philosophy “Do it Yourself” DIY. Thanks to the effort and effort of a group of people with a common objective and denominator in a totally disinterested way.
“Kampsa. 20 years of dreams and rubble “is a documentary made by Dani López Martínez / cuatroyunacámara, has recently been awarded as the best skate documentary of the III Madrid Skate Film Festival. From Machete Company we congratulate you! Both Dani and the people who have made this great project possible!
