In 2006, La Perla Bowl, a Skateboarding Bowl and actual pool on the weekends was completed. Done in partnership with Roberto ‘Boly’ Cortés, a veteran skateboarder since 1976, in teamwork with the neighbors from La Perla community, and with the help of skaters, surfers and people from around the island of Puerto Rico. The bowl was handmade and collaboratively built in front of the Atlantic Ocean on reclaimed land, outside the Old San Juan walls, like the community where it stands. The La Perla Bowl has gained international recognition through skateboarding magazines and ads, including a billboard In New York City.
