“Best of Both” No. 2 stands for an amazing weekend full of massive airs, long grinds, beer flowing afterparty, many hangovers and core bowlriding in one of the most beautiful industrial spots in germany.
1st day: Contest factory bowl
The juniors start the contest with an amazing high level skating in the factory bowl. Eric Springborn took 1st place, 2nd place went to Christopher Koop and 3rd place to Yannick Klüh. After this, the AM contest starts with a similar level and long forgotten moves. Christopher Kubis took the 1st place followed by 2nd Dennis Degenhardt and 3rd place for Daniel Swithart. When the pros started with names like Ian & Julian Dykmans, Lennart Efsing, Björn Klotz, David Martelleur, Thilo Nawrocki, Dennis Ortmann, Jason Parks, Kevin Wenzke, Ronnie Yerman and Phil Zwijsen the factory bowl exploded and the final 6 showed high tech bowl skating to the max with massive lines, tricks & airs. Kevin Wenzke took 1st place, 2nd to Thilo Nawrocki and 3rd place for Ronnie Yerman.
Finished day one and followed to the after contest party where the beer was flowing and two bands had playing: torpedo monkey and electro eelshock straight from japan made a good show and hangovers included.
2nd day: O.M.S.A. Backyard Bowl
The O.M.S.A. Backyard Bowl is way harder to skate than its big brother but the level seemed the same like the best performance in the Factory Bowl the day before. 1st place for Jason Parks followed by 2nd Thilo Nawrocki and Kevin Wenzke 3rd place. After that it came to the last big thing of the day…the biggest air contest in the Factory Bowl. Kevin Wenzke, Ronnie Yerman and Julian Dykmans were pushing the limits and showed some massive airs across the 5 foot line. Kevin Wenzke won with an incredible 7footer f/s air… congrats!
Thanks to Schiko, a really good photographer from Düsseldorf for his nice and authentic view from an intense weekend full of bowl skateboarding…
