Set on an ideal beachfront location, X-Dubai has introduced a new, dynamic skate park designed and built by Convic to the Dubai community at Kite Beach. At 3,200m2 it is largest multi-faceted facility in the UAE, with skate areas for novices through to professionals.

Esmail Al Hashemi, managing director of XDubai, told Gulf News – “Built to world-class standards, the skate park is considered a “blessing” to skateboarders who have been looking for a space to enjoy the sport.”

Enhancing an iconic park setting and creating a focal hub for the community of Jumeirah. the skate park is a unique facility due to its functionality, dynamic uses, its striking aesthetics and contemporary design. All this will position the plaza as one of the flagship public space developments in Dubai.

“The skatepark was born out of a need to create an exciting recreational space for Dubai’s youth. It will give both experienced skaters and beginners a completely custom-made place where they can thrive, have fun, and stay physically active,” said Javad Khoramifar, marketing director of XDubai.

A low profile skate plaza with unique street elements and transition flow areas containing banks, blocks and quarter-pipes seamlessly connect to create continuous skate runs. This is the perfect beginners’ park with unique obstacles for novice riders to learn and develop skills.

More challenging street skate elements are focused in the central space of the plaza, allowing for large events to be held in this area, with the 3.3 m deep bowl being the biggest feature within the park.
