Pinata Bash! Security Skates hosts skate jam at Lime Street Skatepark

Published on

HESPERIA — Trick contests, food and a pinata bust — at Security Skates’ Pinata Bash, brought fun and good vibes to local Lime Street Park skaters. The skate jam, held Saturday, also offered High Desert youth an opportunity to win skate parts and cash.

“Today’s event gives local skateboarders another reason to come out and have fun — all for the love,” said Security Skates Media Productions Owner Paul Ornelas. “And maybe get a little more interest from people who wouldn’t normally be at the skatepark.”

It helps to develop a better sense of community.

Ornelas said he started Security Skate Media Productions about five years ago. He would skate around with friends and record clips for Instagram. Ornelas said he soon discovered that skatepark advocacy and hosting contests at local skateparks was something that he loved.

“Security Skates is something I plan on doing for a long time,” said Ornelas.

Skate Riot, a ministry of First Baptist Church Hesperia, was on hand helping pass out pizza and cold drinks to the kids. The outreach group has a mobile skate park and often helps Ornelas with his skate jams.

Throughout the event, Ornelas could be seen on his bullhorn directing kids to the next activity. Skaters of all ages participated in the contests and pinata bust.

Several of them spoke about the day’s events and their overall skate goals.

The first skate contestant winner, Mason, said he came out to the Pinata Bash to skate the competition, do some tricks and win some prizes.

Skater Klassic said he was working on his tricks and hoped to perfect the tre flip.

When asked if he still wanted to skate when he was older, Skater Dominick said yes.

“I’m going to skate my whole life,” said Dominick.
