Saturday, February 17th, we left Utrecht (in Holland) early for a three hour ride to Verviers in Belgium. All riders, including three extra Belgian etnies riders, had never been to the skatepark, but all of 'em liked the park a lot.
The park isn't big but has a good setup. Most riders liked the stairs and the rails. Coolest obstacle was by far the big hip with the flatbar on top. It was waxed like crazy in there. You you could grind faster then you would roll towards the coping.
The etnies teamriders even did a demo after four hours of skating and seriously annihilated the place. One of the best demos ever by Dutch skateboarders, no doubt!
We spent the night in Antwerp in a hotel, and after waking up skated the new outdoor park. Built by Team Pain, it's a really good park! Around 1 p.m. we left for the North Park. Since everybody was already warmed up from the session before, it didn't take long for the riders to start ripping again.
The locals where stoked to see so many tricks go down so quick, and soon they all set aside to watch the show. Stickers were given out, and goodies tossed. The kids jumped like crazy to make sure they went home with some stuff. Only bad thing was that the photo camera broke when we got in, so we only have a few photos...
Around 5pm we left, but as soon as we where in the car ready to go home, everybody opted to go back to the outdoor park. We skated there 'till 6.30pm when it was completely dark. All in all it was a really good weekend, packed with amazing skating. The last weekend is here. See you in Groningen or Rotterdam!
