A bunch of the UK girls headed over to Copenhagen / Malmo for this years Ultra Bowl contest and more specifically the Girls Get Set Go comp. Rianne Evans from Bournemouth, Helena Long, Amy Ram and Sam Bruce from London, Lucy Adams from Horsham and Stef Nurding from Plymouth.
Tired legs didn’t stop us, and everyone got a few bits down here including Rianne with her special move step off 360 shuv and Helena who rolled away with a smooth nollie inward heel over the steep hip.
Onwards to Israel Plaz, a rad little mexican hat type spot in the middle of a big open plaza. Very chilled little session took place on this amazing tranny piece, Rianne and Helena sliding around bends whilst Amy carved the place to pieces.
Then we headed to Malmö for the contest. We met up with Stef Nurding and in toal 32 girls took part in the Girls Get Set Go comp. Rianne, Lucy, Helena and Sam and Stef all made it through to the semi’s with Amy narrowly missing out. 16 skaters made it through to the semi’s taking place on Saturday at midday.
Everybody was feeling brand new after 2 days of skating/cycling and for some, drinking a bit too much, but we all battled it out in the 4 minute jams.
Lucy made it through to the finals later that day and managed to get 6th place! The comp was won by local champ Emma Fastesson Lindgren, followed by Mimmi Leckius in 2nd, Sweden, and Tonje Pederson in 3rd from Norway.
A huge thanks must go out to Andrea Anderson Antunes and everyone at Skate Malmö/ Bryggeriet for putting on another awesome Ultra Bowl. It’s got to be one of of the best skate events in the World – and thanks to everybody who ripped hard and put on a good show!
Here’s to Ultra Bowl 2016!
