2016 European Skateboard Awards and Bright tradeshow recap

Earlier that day the Nike SB guys had organised a wear test for Ishod Wair’s new Dunk at The Shelter. A bunch of media heads, team riders and kids got split into teams to try out the shoes and play around with the Nike SB app. Always nice to be invited to an skate event where you actually get to skateboard!

Jaccoppo Carrozzi (shot by Alex Pires) during the most entertaining event of the weekend: Element’s Barrel Jump Challenge. I think at was at this point that people started thinking we’d reached the limit of how far it was physically possible to jump with the help of a skateboard. Only it somehow kept going and Chris Pfanner ended up jumping another two (13 in total). Watch the edit here.
The day after the awards ceremony Converse held a session at this custom built circular bowl. Zered Bassett, Eli Reed and most of the European team were present and there was a screening of their new One Star World Tour clip. Going around in circles on a bad hangover wasn’t exactly easy but Rémy killed it all day. This back noseblunt was shot by Reece Leung.
That evening our friends from Civilist, Pop Trading and Post organised a fun little skate trivia pub quiz. Stoked to have got second place but can’t help but find it a bit depressing that we were able to name the entire Link Footwear team (including Alex Moul) or guess titles of several videos just from hearing their credits songs…
