For the second time in a row Etnies rider Chris Aström from Sweden
wins the Etnies European Open in Munich, Germany.
It was already the 5th time for the Etnies European Open in Munich and again,
as every year, IOU ramps provided a brand new street course to fulfill each
skateboarder’s dream. One of the most important events in street skating,
217 skateboarders from more than 14 nations came to compet in one discipline:
The course was a mix of street-like obstacles with a special surprise –
a living room was built into the street course! The course featured two
long Hubba ledges, two tall handrails, two long ledges over a small London
gap, a Dae Won style wedge to picnic table and a Jersey barrier/manual pad
combination and classic contest ramps to tall banks with a gap between them,
the curb cut style living room obstacle with a flat rail and a ledge over
it, and two quarterpipes with a 8 feet wide coping over a death box.
Thursday was practice day for competitors, Friday the Pre-elimination took
place for those, who were not qualified through the other skateboard europe
Semifinals were the first on Sunday’s schedule. Jerry Swenson, Patrick
Eling, Florentin Marfaing were qualified directly into the finals. Jerry
did nice crooked grinds to backside lipslide over the living room rail,
Patrick Eling had solid stay on runs on Florentin nollied the living room
gap and did Nollie Noseslide on the Hubba ledge.
Guy Kämpfen had a solid stay on run in the semi final, Sven Kilchenmann
kickflipped the London gap to five-o on the ledge. Chris Aström ended
his run with a Kickflip to frontside boardslide on the big handrail.
A solid part of the Etnies European Open, the girls jam came after the semifinals.
Lisa Schairer from Germany started her run with an ollie off the platform
of the quarterpipe and did frontside noseslides on the london gap ledge,
placing third. Louisa Menke from the Netherlands ollied the gap between
the big banks and did a clean pop shove it to fakie on the quarterpipe,
placing second. Steffi Weiss from Germany won the Girl’s Jam doing
Nollie Heelflips to fakie on the bank and 5050 grinds on the London gap
The men’s finals: 16 riders, two runs, 45 seconds. Guy Kämpfen
got second place for his smooth and technical skating. He did a feeble grind
on the jersey barrier, lipslid the big rail and mixed it up with a noseslide
on the hubba ledge.
Chris Aström won the Etnies European Open with powerful runs. He started
with a kickflip over the living room, five o grinded the hubba ledge, did
a smith grind down the rail and threw in a boardslide to fakie on the jersey
Last but not least the best trick contest: Florentin Marfaing pulled a clean
nollie inside heelflip over the living room gap.
All in all, another amazing year.
