DIVERTsessions, a 45,000 square foot outdoor venue supporting a wide range of action sports, will launch at MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana for an initial three-month period this summer. The exhibit features six key components: a surf machine, skatepark, ski / snow track, creative education studio, food and beverage program, and event location.
Construction of the site will begin on June 21 and will be open to early access holders on June 26. An inauguration event is planned for the weekend of July 16.
“Although participation in action sports has been shown to have a positive impact on children and youth, many people cannot participate due to the distance between the mountains and the ocean and most urban areas and the high cost of entry, ”said David Monhait, co-founder and chairman of DIVERTbrands. “Rather than spending over $ 200 for a day pass to a hill station, which also requires reliable transportation, the purchase or rental of equipment, and additional costs for lessons, food and accommodation – we wanted to bring these experiences to families in their communities, provide the equipment and include qualified advice as part of a very affordable session ticket.
“DIVERT is an incredible experiential offering that we’re excited to be able to launch here at MainPlace Mall,” said Cory Sams, General Manager of MainPlace Mall. “We are honored that DIVERT has chosen MainPlace Mall for its premier market location and that we will be able to share this exciting range of action sports and creativity building exercises with our customers. “
