18-year-old Alex Sorgente of Italy, 19-year-old Jan Hoffmann of Germany and the United Arab Emirates, and 25-year-old Milton Martinez of Argentina, had full reign of The Tower of Poseidon, which was drained of 100,000 litres of water and rises over 130 feet above the water park.

From a height of 25m above The Palm – more than six story’s high – the trio skateboarded down the 156-metres of serpentine twists and turns of Zoomerango, before taking on its 14-metre wall. They then whizzed their way down Aquaconda at speeds of over 35 kilometres per hour, skating up to the edges of the 9.2m-wide pipes, catching glimpses of Dubai from the open sides before disappearing down tunnels and vertical banking of 4.6 metres.

Atlantis, The Palm is home to the 17 hectare and award winning Aquaventure Waterpark including the Tower of Poseidon and Tower of Neptune, 4.5 hectare Dolphin Bay and Sea Lion Point, 11 million litre Ambassador Lagoon, 2 guest pools and The Lost Chambers Aquarium.
