Dont miss one of the best 25 places you have to visit: http://travel.usnews.com/Rankings/Worlds_Best_Vacations/

is there a cap on number of teams?

highly considering

is there a link to exact location of courts?

"See map: Google Maps"
scroll up

nevermind i found it.

Thanks Matt for answering...we expect at least 7-8 local teams. For more than 12 teams we will use basket courts next to our polo court. either for pickups or competition. lights off at ~11pm and no one will kick us out at any time.

Count me in


I'm throwing my name in on this as well. Anyone looking to team up?

actually, pretty set on my 2nd now. Looking for a third.

Orlandos bringing the heavy hand again.

Yea, this time will be better!

Hmm. I might wanna

So who wants to go in on a villa for the weekend, since that's what was recommended on the facebook event.

Lets hype this up! calling all slayers! KAW KAW


looking for a team


Baby Joey, patti, and dirks rolling down to this, put us whatever list we need to be on
ohhh helll yeah

Yeah, is there a list for this?

Register on site (only $5 p/p), we have a permanent concrete bikepolo court and boards for many teams tournm.

I'm in. Need team.

Anyone ever ridden the velodrome in San Juan? Totally abandoned? Still rideable?

:( still abandoned...ride the city! the velodrome is quite hidden inside a neighborhood, the city is full of pretty people! ;)

I'm torn between this and DPI.

Both will be good, but i think DPI will be there forever and ever! Also waiting for me...

I will be down in PR from the 12-21 in february staying in between San Juan, luquillo, ponce, cerro gordo, rincon (hopefully) as well as anywhere else we end up camping this trip. Definitely gonna check out monkey island, we did vieques and the bio bay last year. I might be able to get some polo in if I could borrow a bike? My buddy carlos live in san juan, can anyone recommend some can't be missed stuff to do down there?

Come early and dont miss the tournm...hehe! If you refer monkey island to isla de mona then "mona" word come from an indian word "amona", so we sony translate it. Btw is an amazing isolated place. Can borrow my bike and should stop in cueva del indio or cueva ventana both in Arecibo during your trip.

oh nice! the courts are a few blocks away from Carlos's house AND Kasalta

Fact: Obama had a sandwich in Kasalta... :/

and get in on a villa or whatever everyone is doing

is your boy putting everybody up Sean??? just kidding but I'm trying to come to this!

Haha, theres a pretty chill hostel right in that neighborhood that sleeps 4 per room. I think it was $40 a night. Carlos has a mini ramp in his living room I'll ask him if ppl can crash on it. You can always camp on the beach til you get kicked off


hi!!!!!! who's going? i wanna go but i would prefer to have a team before crazy idea I know but whatever if you wanna play with me or have any idea if people that maybe wanna play? cause canada sux in the winter I wanna beach party in february

Going bringing lots of friends board shorts all week


Yo quiero iiiirrrr

I'm in, looking for a team.

wow..! flights are still under $500 out of sea-tac...

slayers are only slayers if the slay out of town...

thats my usual ticket ~480 when i go to pdx! still worth it.

I know that this is besides the point with that beach, but...

How many courts will there be and is there any word on the quality of the surface?

Surface is the best i have played ever. compared to pdx pavement, almost rough hockey rings and basketball courts. It's a smooth painted concrete.

We have a permanent bikepolo court and boards in case we have to mount a second one beside our court. It's a basketball one with roof, perfect one in case that weather gets crazy any day.

I'm thinking of coming Wednesday -> Monday.

Will there be stuff going on Thursday/Friday?

It's not finished, but the plan right now is the following: on thursday we usually play pickups (thats a must), it's likely to happen the same on friday, but after that we go to a pre tournm get together at a bar nearby de court. later on we will set everything and let you know!

Cool, I've booked my flight.

Now I just need a team, if anyone is looking?

I am looking, help me play against and beat my own team (who is playing with Sergio, boooo), Ill have my tickets this weekend

Get rad

Hey Bob, for sure, sounds good.

Now we just need a third.

you got a third yet?

I'm looking


this is going to be awesome


You bet!

I need a fucking vacation for sure!
Im looking at tickets right now... who needs a third???
When are people arriving and what else are you all doing?

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

you can also post in the facebook event: http://m.facebook.com/events/100393150128920?refid=25 i think a few are arriving thursday. By sure we play that day! Next day pickup and get 2gether i a nearby bar.

Hey wondering where I should ship a bike. Looks like MKE is bringing the whole crew where can we stay!


Ship? I think travelling with the bike is cheaper. But if still wanna ship it we can get you a bike shop address near the court.

Its settled; Im in, and bringing my lady - MPLS is frozen tundra, and we need some beach/sun time. I know there is some good stuff to do in the area, like the bio-luminescent bay, just wondering if there is enough to warrant a whole week, wednesday-wednesday, and if there are cheaper options for lodging than the Hostel OR is anyone grabbing some sort of beach house, bc I want in on that for two peeps.

Also seconding the request on a bike shop to ship the polo rig too.

Anyone else going to be there before or after?

And perhaps most importantly: who still needs a third? I am one of the top players in MPLS, and Im not picky since this might be more vacation than polo-cation...

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

Are you in the facebook event? So i message you the address.

This shit just got real / We're also planning on hosting a "BPolo Film Movie Nite" in San Juan just the night before tournament / Friday 8th . . .

Anyone down for it ?!

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

Still looking for a team y'all. Dont really care who, or how good you are/are not.

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

In two weeks i can get you a team if you havent found no one by then.

Thanks dawg! Im not too stressed.

MinneaPOLOgasm -----------[] ((((O

Has anyone had any luck finding a hostel or apt to rent? Seems like everything in the neighborhood of the courts is rented that week! Don't want to sleep on the beach but I will, Locals where you at we need some help!


I'll check around to see. You might borrow one of my tents anyway.


https://www.airbnb.com/ --- check it out!! San Juan, PR

This is where I got my place. The good spots are disappearing quick.

see the facebook event for a few photos of the court!

If your still looking for a place to rent this is the one. Cheap and a really nice woman shes coming with her son to watch the tourney! https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/163911


heading down there if anbody needs a third get at me. domoredirt@gmail dont realy get on here.
also if people are looking to pitch on a big rental let me know im in.

bummed to be so far /cant make it to this tourney. PR bici polo rulez !

Lets see in the future...

I stayed at this spot last time I was in Condado, its about a half mile from the courts and two blocks from the beach. Its decent, cheap if you split it up and the people who run it are cool. Pretty much the price of a Super 8 but your in paradise and not on the side of a highway in oklahoma. I would be surprised if they were all booked up we walked in valentines day weekend last year and they didnt have much booked.
