More than 500 skateboarders from far, far away galaxies are expected to invade the Kunschti from the 7th to the 10th of August 2008 to roll and thunder through the streets of Basel for four days. They will discover smooth surfaces in the urban atmosphere to kickflip and ollie and grind and take over Basel and then maybe the entire planet. To welcome them, etnies and Carhartt have created a brand new streetcourse built by the force of IOU-Ramps and lots of local help to transmit a true vision of street skateboarding for the 8th edition of the European Skateboard Championships. The transmission continues also in the miniramp, where the European skateboarders and local heroes showcase their talents in the transition. For the youngsters, the Junior Champs are on the schedule again on Thursday, as well as the Girl’s Jam for the girls in street on Sunday.
An accompanying program of music, and celebration orbits the 8th edition of the ESC and more information will soon be decrypted on www.skateboardeurope.com The European Skateboard Championship is for Europeans only and this year only we authorised to accept the participation of extraterrestrial inhabitants with a valid transportation card and welcome them with a 50% off the inscription fee. Please inform us up front about any extraordinary menu wishes.
