Yesterday, Monday January 27, Volcom ran its annual miniramp contest at ISPO Munich in Germany. After a first warm up day of best line contest, the “serious” contest was on, and it delivered a serious amount of hammers, bangers and its share of slams too.
As soon as the contest started the tradeshow audience got their hangover instantly washed away by the sick action and the free beers from the Volcom bar.
Check the webcast replay, photos and the video edit to give you a small idea of what went down.
The young guns got the old guard down and killed it as the bonus surprise, it was good to see them take over and also plenty of new faces on the ramp. Sweden’s David Stenström didn´t make the cut to the finals but was skating mental, as well as Alain Goikoetxea, Axel, Nassim and high flyer Freddy Austbo.
UK´s Axel Hallford destroyed the ramp with tweaked airs and an eclectic bag of tricks and finished at the 5th Place, Dannie Carlsen took the 4th place with his wizzardy fleg and, Fernando Bramsmark finished third skating as always with a big smile on his face and full speed.
Then Daan Van Der Linden and Oski litteraly shredded into pieces every bit of the ramp, annihilating everything in their path and landing hammers after hammers. Oski took the win and a sweet 2500 euros check, while Daan finished second with a 1200 euros prize! It was as always a blast and the party that followed got everyone set for another tradeshow day…
Thanks to everyone that came compete and watch, to ISPO, Hellaclips, Dogway, Kingpin, Dammm and Electric for the support!
