ELECTRIC HYPE OF THE DAY:
Same spot, different year! After last year success we went back to the smooth “ice hockey ring skatepark” in Olten. This park is amazing, so much place, so many possibilities and so much fun…if you`re the next time in this region, you should definitely visit this genius playground.
The Saturday morning was a very busy morning at the registration tent…thanks to Miki and Jeff for the organization. We didn`t expected so many skateboarders…overall, around 100 skateboarders signed in and were ready to shred the park.
Due to this the contest started a bit later and everyone got their shred on at 1 pm after the classic BBQ with authentic grilled white swiss sausages.
The heats started wild while the DJ played some rock n`roll.
The contest in 3 words: So much ENERGY, a lot of POP and such a good Level!
You won`t read a “trick list” here because you better check the photos and videos to feel the energy of this event…it was a blast. The judges had a tough job all afternoon long because of the many heats and the level of the young and the old skateboarders was really close together.
Big up also to a bunch of spectators who supported the guys like hockey stars…you guys killed it!
So check the video and photos of this great Wild in the Parks 2013 in Switzerland.
It was another great visit and tourstop at the Skatepark Olten and we`re looking forward to come back next year. Big thanks to the crew of the skaterhalle and all the great staff we had on place.
