Yeah, the kickoff for the European W.I.T.P. 2013 Tour was a blast!
So many talented skaters gathered in Tilburg and shredded the park.
The level of skateboarding was crazy with a chill friendly vibe and the parents of the youngsters kept cheering even for the old stars.
Free skateboarding, free food, free drinks, free goodies and most important, free minds sharing the Wild In The Park experience.
Young kids with big tricks started the show with a unique drive that only kids can have, super hyped and all in on every trick.
Big jumps, flip frontboards and kickflip late shove´s seems to be today’s standard for them.
But even weird creative stuff like backside backfootflips and 50/50 boneless out where no problem for these little skaterats.
Always amazing to watch new kids with different approaches to an obstacle, expect the unexpected that’s the lesson of the day.
In the categories 15 and above its clear that there is more routine and power within the tricks, consistency is an understatement, landing trick after trick with style.
Definitely Fun to watch nose grinds nollieflips, high speed flying and grinding action as well as technical manny’s
The cool thing about the W.I.T.P. contest format is that is about pulling your best trick within the time given.
This makes the skaters give their best and the crowd gets to see the next level stuff.
Seeing the others landing tricks hypes and push everyone in the contest.
After a few jams it was time to take a relaxing brake and fire up the barbeque.
The vinyl kept on spinning the whole day DJ-JP gave the groove.
The open jam really was booming, These guys where really ripping the obstacles.
Tons of tricks were landed, so many good skaters giving there best and beyond.
Too many tricks went down to mention! Check the video to see some of them, the level of skateboarding was crazy.
Till exhaustion they delivered the crowd an outstanding show.
The judges came together and counted the scores while free goodies where being tossed into the cheering crowd.
Beats kept pumping thru the speakers and the not tired ones kept on attacking the course.
