Real Street Amsterdam 2013 – Back in the game

After several months of preparation, the Real Street Amsterdam went down on the 31st of August. With riders from the Netherlands, Germany, France, Denmark, Belgium and the United Kingdom the turn up was great, and so was the level. After a warm-up session at one of the newest curbs in the city, the group of over 70 bladers moved on to the nearby flatrail to continue the session.

With confirmed riders such as Jacob Juul, Tyron Ballantine and Daniel Prell, all new spots and a great team of judges the contest is a must-go for Europe's bladers!

Amsterdam Week: IMYTA+ Flashback

I had seen touristbladers before of course. Most of the time you would run into touristbladers at the local skatespots, and every once in a while you could spot a small flock of touristbladers in the wild. But nothing could have prepared me for the amount of touristbladers I witnessed the days leading up to one of the most anticipated real street events ever. Everywhere I went I encountered Mindgame hoodies, $enate backpacks, Medium sweaters and more of the like. Us Damsko Kids had been waiting for this weekend ever since it had become clear that the two grandfathers of real street contests would be working together on what was to become one of the most epic rollerblading weekends ever witnessed by man. This day had finally arrived. With it an unbelievable number of rollerbladers of all ages and nationality. Words fail to describe the awesomeness experienced by yours truly. Therefore I will not even attempt to bore you with more of my insane ramblings, but will let the pictures speak for themselves.
