Ruben Alcantara: The Lost Bowl

There's no denying that Ruben Alcantara is a true legend with a passion so big for BMX. He reached out to us and let us in on a video he's been working on with friends from Portugal. Without giving away too much, Ruben and his friends stumbled upon "The Lost Park" in the middle of nowhere in a small town in Portugal. Check it! All credits given to FoxHead

 Would love to ride that wonderful place. OK for outsiders to enjoy that concrete? Its my new adventure. Thank you for sharing the Lost park. A true amazing piece of transition for Bike and Skateboard. And thank you Ruben for sharing your runs with us all. The future is among us.

 The park is in a good location for us because we don´t have any bike park close to us and this is the only thing we have here but that park is really mad and bad built. there are lot´s of spots there that doesn´t make any sence.but we are thanks to receive some bmx guys in here because it´s very rare in here and we wold like to receive even more in the future...this is a very dificult sport to practice in this country.
Love BMX

 I wonder if they were confused by the name of the park, or if they just tried to confuse people watching... Belmonte Skate Park in Portugal isn't in the town of Belmonte, it's in a town a little ways away.

 Ian, i live 5 miles from this little "town" Belmonte, and the park is named as Belmonte Skate Park, they are Spanish, that's why they call it that.
  • + 2
 Yes but is the park not actually in Guarda? This is what I was told...
  • + 1
 Ian, make this go VOD to be one of the firsts portuguese VODs Big Grin
  • + 2
 ian it isn't in guarda, it's in belmonte, guarda's bike park it's a pourpose built park, yhis i think was originally a water deposit thats gone unused and they cleaned it up so they could use it
  • + 1
 Ian the park is in Belmonte, but Belmonte is a part of Guarda, is like a state

 @mtz666, that makes sense, but what a perfect park eh?!!!
  • + 1
 mtz the park is old, i don't think it was made of that
  • + 1
 yeah it's exactly that, bmx as we know it isn't all that recent, i dont think it was built from scratch, at least part of that was reused
  • + 1
 one thing i know, it's so clean, no graffiti, just cement *-*
  • + 4
 Ok, that makes sense then that the Belmonte park is in 'Guarda' if Belmonte is a part of Guarda... This is very definitely a purpose built skate/bmx park, it has oververt sections and rails etc. and that full pipe looks beautiful!

 yeah it looks, and the size of the pool is jumangus Smile

 This looks so sweet.
