FinnFest Coming To Robb Field Skate Park

Finland is home to 1.8 million saunas, ice hockey, reindeer and two of the world's best pro skateboarders: Arto Saari and Marious Syvanen. Skate fans will be happy to know that they do not have to head off to Finland for a chance to see the two skaters, as both will be taking part in this year's FinnFest in San Diego, California, August 10 through the 14, 2011. Here are the details.

Saari and Syvanen will be on hand in the festival's Youth Room on August 13, 2011, from 11:15 a.m. until noon to sign autographs, talk shop, show clips of their skating and chat it up with skate fans. Afterwards there will be a skateboarding demo session and an opportunity for the fans to skate alongside the stars at the nearby Ocean Beach Skate Park. The Ocean Beach Skate Park, also known as the Robb Field Skate Park, is located on 2525 Bacon Street in San Diego. The 40,000 square foot park is open daily, year round, from 10 a.m. until dusk. It features a combination bowl and street course layout with interesting obstacles like an octagon volcano. Admission to the skate park is gratis. Shuttle service from the FinnFest to the skate park is slated to be available for those who wish to travel freely between the two areas. However, those that want to skip the FinnFest and head straight to the skate park may want to consider taking advantage of the 35 and 923 San Diego Metropolitan System trolley routes' $5 per person day passes. Details on the trolley service including information on where to buy the day passes is available online.
