Which pro skater is ready to step up and take the title of 2005’s European female champ? Just wait and see what happens at Push, the etnies Girl Jam on August 21, 2005, at the fifth annual European Skateboard Championships presented by etnies and Carhartt in Basel, Switzerland.
etnies Girl’s Evelien Bouilliart (far right) won the first stop of Push, the etnies Girl Jam that took place in Munich, Germany.
The first etnies Girl Jam was held in Malmo, Sweden, at the etnies European Open in 2002, where six girls competed. By 2004, the number had nearly tripled, with 16 girls competing against each other in the European Championships in Basel. Even more girls are expected to participate this year, including etnies Girl riders Louisa Menke from the Netherlands and Evelien Bouilliart from Belgium. Although Bouilliart has only been competing for one year, she won the first Push, the etnies Girl Jam in Munich, Germany, this past May and just recently took silver in Women’s Skateboard Street at the X Games.
The contest format will consist of a 45 second run followed by a five minute jam session, giving the girls just enough time to get revved up and show off their skills while the judges and audience sit on the edges of their seats in anticipation about whom will be chosen as the female European champion of 2005. Stay tuned for contest results and news about upcoming Push, the etnies Girl Jam events.
