After the unbelievable success of last year’s European Championship, Christian Heise is doing it all again for 2020.
Christian, the founder/boss at Never Enough, really knows how to put on a great event, and this year promises to be even bigger than before. The few issues that were present in 2019 are being dealt with – and considering 2019’s Euro Freestyle was one of the best competitions of all time, that means 2020 should be an amazing event.
Format: Pro, Am and Masters divisions, two minute runs, two runs per skater. Special beginner/rookie division with two shorter runs, and a female division with runs of unannounced length.
What to expect: A freestyle event run by freestylers, for freestylers. Solid organisation in an amazing space followed by a proper party for all the riders.
It’s officially been announced that Paderborn 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Here’s what you could have won.
As the longest-running freestyle contest in the World, the annual Paderborn BBQ contest has become a staple part of the freestyle competition circuit, with a large UK contingent driving across the continent to attend every year. This definitely isn’t one to be missed.
Free camping is available on-site for international visitors – you can bring your own tent and camping gear or just bring a sleeping bag and stay in the giant communal tent.
If you want to get involved, get in touch with everyone in the British Freestyle Skateboarding group on Facebook and join the road trip!
(note: finding the skatepark can be a nightmarish experience the first time you go. While the address below is correct, it’s highly recommended you come along with people who’ve been before to make sure you can find the place okay.)
Format: Pro, Am, and Masters divisions; two minute runs, two runs per skater
What to expect: A grassroots event run with German efficiency under the baking sun. Anything goes here – it’s far from family friendly. Expect huge crowds and lots of alcohol!
