Located in the San Angel neighbourhood in the south of Mexico City, the Obregón Monument is one of the most well-known spots in the world as it appears many times in the best skate videos and has been visited by legendary skaters such as Daewon Song, Kerry Getz, Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman and many others. It was visited by the Emerica team before the Wild in the Streets event which brought more than ten thousand skaters together on the streets of Mexico City. The monument, which is located in the Parque de la Bombilla, was constructed in 1935 to commemorate the assassination of the president Álvaro Obregón.
The spot forms the base of the building, with various manual pads which join to make a couple of hips and ledges on quite a good floor. It’s normally used as a manual pad, to make combinations between the flats, as well as ledge, a ramp for jumping and more depending on where your imagination takes you. Skaters have done drop ins from the sculptures, tricks in the hubbas, wallrides that go on behind the flat and very technical manual tricks.
