Day 3: We went to Middelburg, in the southwest corner of Holland. The Meker skatepark is one of the smallest on the world, but has a really good vibe. As soon as the riders got in, Axel Cruysberghs started the etnies show. Each trick he landed got the crowd even more hyped. Soon the rest of the riders where backing Axel. Evelien Bouilliart and Bart Naafs where both sick at home, but the other eight etnies riders took care of biz. The etnies Wooden Waffles tour was by far the busiest event in the Meker skatepark, ever. Thanks to the Meker and Forties crew for this amazing day!
Day 4: Last Sunday we went to Burnside skatepark 'n shop. With 16 years one of the oldest skateboard shops in Holland. Since the moved to their current location about five years ago they have a skatepark in the back of the shop, which makes it even more special.
The place was busy. Lots of skateboarders where there. There where even quite a bit of familiar faces from last year's STEP UP tour. The team skated through the whole park, doing tricks on all the obstacles. Hein Schellekens and Axel Crusyberghs ripped in the miniramp, and they where back-up by the etnies Europe team manager, Oli Buergin. He killed the ramp with various switch tricks! At the end of the day some visiting kids fought for their life during the product toss. A lot of them went home with a hat, belt or wallet. All in all a really good weekend. Good vibes, great skating and we're only half way the tour...
