Together we’ve invited skate pirates from all over Europe to come upriver the
Sèvre Nantaise and the Moine (Two rivers in France, just in case you didn’t know before…erm…like us…) to Clisson where HELLFEST 2008 is taking place.
“There yonder our maiden seas, the sweet call of adventure beckons. Conquer your dreams and fears at the Musket And Hook Challenge! There will be treasure, there will be blood, there will be rum and mud.”
“All of us are promised to HELL, those of us who don’t get there on our decks will be thrown to the sharks or left to rot in the hold.”
Last year we brought you the “Altar” miniramp. We won’t reveal to much on how it will look this year, yet. To give you a hint: It will be something close to a bowl… But bowl alone isn’t even close to it. With this year’s setup Carhartt skateteam member Matt Grabowski will outmatch himself and set new standards regarding creativity and ramp building.

Ok, one more hint: The construction pays homage to our challenge’s motto and Clisson’s riverside connected history.
You’ll be stunned (we were, when we saw the 3D-modelling of it), so make sure you’ll catch some of the action while also watching the Festival’s guests like Slayer, Venom, Motörhead, NOFX, Helloween, Testament, and many many more.
Here are some pictures from last year’s HELLFEST skate session at the “Altar” ramp:
We all gather at the HELLFEST in Clisson on Friday the 20th of June, and those of us who are worthy will last until the wee hours of Sunday 22nd.
All on deck, or be damned!
