Bio

Omar Párraga, better known as "El Pulga" by his friends in the skate scene, is someone who conveys an innate confidence at first sight.

El Pulga began skateboarding at a very young age. It all started when his parents gave him a skateboard and sent him on his way. He soon decided to rule the streets of his hometown Guadalajara and, over time, what began as a hobby became much more. 

His first comp was during the Red Bull Manchado Tour and gave him the opportunity to show what he was capable of. In the years since, he has dominated the likes of the Vans Royal Sidestripe (one of the biggest national skate competitions in Mexico) and Red Bull Drenaje, as well as picking up medals at Manny Mania (Mexico) three times!

Omar Párraga- remember the name.
