Malmo for Vans Park Series and Skateboard Tourism

Posted by Rob Meronek on Friday, May 26, 2017

On this stop for the Vans Park Series at Malmo, we had some extra time to go street skating and sample some of the amazing spots that are everywhere in this modern architecture city. The old guys in our crew were super stoked and stacked up the clips daily after work. Check out some samples from that and of course the ripping skating at the Contest.

When we rolled up on this spot we randomly found, we figured it would be one kickturn and bust. We ended up skating it for an hour. Insane.
