Three World Class Skaters Take Over Aquaventure Waterpark At Atlantis, The Palm To Shoot Awe Inspiring Footage
(11 April 2016)
Skateboarders Pull Off Nail-Biting Tricks on Two Heart-Stopping, Record-Breaking Waterslides


 

Over four days in January, Aquaventure Waterpark at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai was taken over by three world class skateboarders, playing host to a rare riding experience. The awe-inspiring stunt captured never-before-seen skateboarding footage as the group Flipped, Grinded, Dropped and Ollied through the number one waterpark in Europe and the Middle East.

18-year-old Alex Sorgente of Italy, 19-year-old Jan Hoffmann of Germany and the United Arab Emirates, and 25-year-old Milton Martinez of Argentina, had full reign of Poseidon’s Tower, which was drained of 100,000 liters of water and rises over 130 feet above the waterpark.

From a height of 25m above The Palm – that’s more than six storeys high – the trio skateboarded down the 156-metres of serpentine twists and turns of Zoomerango, before taking on its 14-metre wall. They then whizzed their way down Aquaconda at speeds of over 35 kilometres per hour, skating up to the edges of the 9.2m-wide pipes, catching glimpses of Dubai from the open sides before disappearing down tunnels and vertical banking of 4.6 metres.

Alex Sorgente commented “The whole hotel was insane; it was the nicest resort I've stayed in and the rooms were amazing. I never had the chance to skate a waterpark before, the slides were huge and a real challenge, kinda scary but very cool. My favorite part was the roll in to the giant bank wall, I’ve never skated a wall so tall in my life’.

Atlantis, The Palm is home to the 17 hectare and award winning Aquaventure Waterpark including the Tower of Poseidon and Tower of Neptune, 4.5 hectare Dolphin Bay and Sea Lion Point, 11 million litre Ambassador Lagoon, 2 guest pools and The Lost Chambers Aquarium. Containing 18 million litres of water, a huge variety of thrilling waterslides, a 2.3 kilometre river ride and animal encounters, the park has recently been voted one of the best in the world. Resort guests of Atlantis also have unlimited complimentary access to Aquaventure Waterpark.
Serge Zaalof, President and Managing Director of Atlantis, The Palm commented “We are honored that the skaters and the team at Red Bull chose Atlantis, The Palm to film this stunt. These skateboarders are extremely talented and clearly expressed their excitement to be here, and we look forward to working together on what will be a successful relationship going forward”.

Along with the three skateboarders, the 22-person production crew included director, Eduardo Muñoz, drone operator, Nathan Avila and photographers, Stefan Eigner and Max Shatrov
