The Quiksilver Bowlriders contest is one of best contests of the year. This is the 3rd year since it moved from Marseille to MalmÜs Stapelbäddsparken and although the weather might be better in southern France the last two years were as good as could be. First highlight of the weekend was the session in the freshly painted kidney pool. As last year Dave Duncan had his hands full with some Swedish Kronors to give out to whoever did some gnarly trick . Everybody ripped but Carl Wilsons fs blunt slide over the shallow end stairs was definitely gnarly.

On Saturday we got up really to check out this new park that was still under construction and is probably now finished as you read this. It´s located in a park next to the beach not to far from the Stapelbäddsparken. It’s way smaller but not less challenging because it has some weird and different transitions everywhere so it has a kind of the DIY feeling to it. So when you´re in Malmö on your next visit make sure to not only pay Stapelbäddsparken a visit but to also put your wheels on this nice piece of concrete. See you next year.

Southwest Sweden in a nutshell

by Axel Torschmied

Dalsland: Going north there are less cities and nature takes over. The best place to relax are the lakes in Dalsland. Take a boat and forget everyday life.

The Gothenburg harbour used to be a lively place with ship construction. What is left of it is a small dock section. The rest is a skateable city terrain called Eriksberg stretching along the river. Fredrik Bundsen kick flips his way through a stone monument in the evening sun.

Long winters force people to go indoors. John Magnusson hits a fs nosegrind tailgrab during a weekend vert session in Malmรถs indoor park Bryggeriet.

A man that left Philly to live in Gothenburg: Jake Lewis runs the only skater-owned skateshop in town: PTNC – shop. In his spare time he takes care of his family or does nosegrinds on public brickwalls.

Jocke is a long time vert skater based in Malmö at the south end of the country. Between frequent travel he enjoys a relaxed session in his home spot in Stapelbäddsparken and pulls a massive backside air on the bank.

Ryan_Wootton_transfer > An english man in Sweden. Ryan moved to Alingsås some years ago ripping the local concrete park at its best. Nice transfer over a concrete wave land.

In Scandinavia vert-culture is still quite alive. Among a huge army of vert addicts Jocke Olsson, Nicky Guerrero and Rune Glifberg are ripping on a daily basis. Jocke – massive Madonna on a public vert ramp in Copenhagen.
