Europe’s had a pretty poor summer so far, lots of rain, but in the dry spells between showers, there’s been great skate action in Russia, then Poland, Israel, UK and so on and the Vans Shop Riot continues to tour the continent. The level of both competition and camaraderie gets better every year, and we are already looking forward to the Vans Shop Riot Finals! Taking place at the notorious ‘Flesh & Bones’ Skatepark in Belgium, the final will once again see the créme de la créme of European skate shop teams battle it out for the title. Well, before we get there there are more countries to visit and more scores to settle!!
This weekend the European Vans Shop Riot tour will lead us to beautiful Switzerland. On Saturday August 23rd, Zürich’s massive Brunau Skatepark will be the site of the finest Skate Shop Teams going head to hear for their place in the European finals, where not just honor & glory await, but also a nice prize fund for the winning team!
So, drop your plans to hang out at the Limmat or dip your toes in one of those popular Seebadis and make your way to the skatepark in Brunau, which is close to Sihlcity and easily accessible by public transport.
Please note that each shop can only register 1 team of 4 riders; if your shop is represented in multiple regions of Switzerland, you can send 1 team per region ( e.g. 242 Lausanne, 242 Geneva etc.). We will only accept teams that are officially part of a Swiss Skate Shop Team for our Vans Shop Riot stop in Zürich.
