ULTRA BOWL II – Malmö, Sweden – Day 1

Malmö, Sweden’s UltraBowl II held last August in Stäpelbäddsparken’s ‘backyard pool’ had some truly insane skateboard action going down! Day 1 was qualifications for the final day’s PRO semi’s and finals, and Master’s finals. Serious ripping was taking place from pool / transition skaters from all over USA and Europe. Skaters included: Kevin Kowalski, Josh Mattson, Ben Raybourn, Cody Lockwood, Zarosh Eggleston, Per Magnusson, Kevin Wenzke, Guillarme Mocquin, Julien Benoliel, Tim Johnson, Benji Galloway, Josh “Skreetch” Sandoval, Frank Faria, Alex Giraud, Björn Klotz, Anders Tellen, Mathias Nylen, Andreas “Snooken” Lindstöm… to name a few…

I didn’t take many photos the first day of the contest, the full speed and high flying antics kept me behind the video camera trying not to get smashed…in the face.

The next day would be more the opposite – not a lot of video, but a bunch of photos.
