Other than skateboarding, the park also welcomes rollerblading and roller skating, as well as other land board sports such as longboarding and surf skating.

Por Vida Skateboarding also offers classes for novices to learn the ropes, oops, ramps. Por Vida Skateboarding students vary in ages — from as young as five years old to even those in their 60s.
There is also the option for students and visitors to rent their own skate gear onsite if they don’t have their own.
For a break in between runs, skateboarders can also head to the rest and refreshment area within the indoor skatepark.
