World Skate, the governing body of rollerbladers, is set to return to the United Arab Emirates for the highly anticipated World Skateboarding Tour (WST) Dubai.
From February 25 to March 10, this world-class skate contest promises to showcase the best skateboarders in the specially designed park and street skate parks in the iconic Dubai Harbour, providing a backdrop against the city's skyline and the renowned Jumeirah Archipelago.
World Skate posted, We’re returning to the United Arab Emirates for another outstanding world-class skateboarding competition - get ready for the World Skateboarding Tour (WST) Dubai from February 25 to March 10.
WST Dubai Park FEB 25 – MAR 03
WST Dubai Street MAR 03 – MAR 10
The specially designed park and street skate parks were built in the Dubai Harbour, right next to the infamous Jumeriah Archipelago, with the downtown Dubai skyline as a backdrop.
With the Olympic Games in Paris just around the corner, the field of participants for the Olympic Qualifier Series (OQS) in Shanghai (May 16-19) and Budapest (June 20-23) will be reduced for the first time. Only 44 men and women in each discipline (street and park) can qualify for the OQS, so the qualifying points from Dubai will be decisive for many of the starters.
The combination of a world-class location, more than 300 of the best male and female skateboarders from around the world, and the added pressure of reaching the OQS will give us two weeks of progression, excitement, and skateboarding at the highest level.
