Velbert, Germany – skatepark checkout + mini skate tour

Marc “little swastika” and Alex “rad slash” make a two man mini tour in 72 hours.

“We hit Velbert just after it was finished. There was a big hole in the deep-end that was not closed which limited our lines a little. But overall, the bowl is really nice to skate. Crazy lines with the bump in the middle and a nice mix of different transitions. Pool stones in the deep-end and some stairs in a quick corner.  For sure this was not the last time we will be there…

We were also at the Düsseldorf outdoor park, right after the OMSA session before it got dark. We also hit Eitorf, but early in the morning without sleep and it was full with construction stuff. We were just too lazy to spend an hour removing all the stuff just to ride a few minutes. But we want to hit it the next time….”  – marc
