ON A ROLL – SKATEBOARD PARK COMING TO MUNICH AIRPORT
Munich Airport’s MAC Forum will be transformed into a skateboard park later this month for a four day event involving some of Germany’s top competitors.
The airport promises that visitors will witness dazzling displays of tricks, spins and jumps at the new Skate & Style event, which will take place at the airport from April 24-28.
In the Club of Skaters (COS) Cup, competitors will face off in three categories, with the winners qualifying for the national final at the end of November at Europapark Rust, Germany’s biggest theme park.
Spectators at Skate & Style who are up to the challenge are also welcome to grab a board and test their own skills on the 800 square meter park terrain.
The four-day event will feature numerous highlights, including a programme of entertainment and fun activities.
As fans watch, Germany’s skateboarding elite will attack the ramps and obstacles and showcase their best moves. And between rounds of the 2019 COS Cup, local heroes will go head to head in the Titus Locals Only Competition (LOC) Cup.
Registration for COS and LOC contestants will take place during the first open practice sessions on Friday April 27.
On Saturday, starting at 1 pm, things will then heat up as participants start vying for spots in the final. The sem-final and final rounds will take place on Sunday starting at 11 am.
Before the awards ceremony, a special attraction awaits at 5 pm: the Ravenol Barrel Jump. In this test of skill, skateboarders accelerate towards a row of barrels, jump off at the last second, and try to make a clean landing on a board positioned at the other end.
On all four days of the event, the park terrain will be open not only to competitors, but also to passengers and airport visitors keen to give this exciting sport a try.
Every day from 10am to 6pm, Skate & Style will host free open sessions and workshops, with instructors offering tips for the parcours or miniramp.
Skateboards, helmets and pads can be borrowed at no cost. Visitors to Skate & Style can park free of charge for up to five hours in the P20 car park.
