Europe’s premiere amateur street skateboarding competition will take place at Skatepark Amsterdam on July 1st, 2nd, and 3d.

On top of the amazing location and one of Europe’s best skate parks, an overall purse of 15,000 Euros is the icing on the cake for this amazing contest. Skatepark will be open from 12:00 to 21:00 during the week prior of the event.

For pre-registration only contact Rob Meronek at


Fly to Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam (AMS). Take the train from the station inside to the airport to Centraal Station (about 15 minutes and 4 Euros). Once at the station, exit the rear doors of the station and head towards the water. Once you arrive at the only street, go left and walk down to the blue ferryboats. The boats are free and you will want to take the last boat on the left, next to the benches. Once arriving on the other side, the skatepark is straight ahead and to the right, in the old industrial area (shipyard, NDSM building).

Hotels in Amsterdam tend to be expensive and hard to find at the last minute. If you are planning on coming, take a look at and get a leg up on reserving a room!

Generally you will want to be in or around the Centraal Station. If not, be aware when you make the reservation and verify the location of the hotel. Otherwise it could be a big surprise!
