Amsterdam: the capital of red lights, drugs, bicycles and of-course some of the best street skating competitions there have been. When you take the trip to the Real Street Amsterdam, it’s not only about the competition. It’s about experiencing Amsterdam as well. Visit the red light district, roll one up in one of the many coffeeshops and enjoy the cultural heritage in one of the many musea.

Top 3 Supermarkets

– Dirk van den Broek (Cheaper than the Albert Heijn, but less classy)
– Marqt (For all vegetarians and conscious eaters: food straight from the countryside, without pesticides and additives)

Top 3 IMYTA Spots:
– Amstelkink (The huge kinkrail which was totally killed during the IMYTA)
– Sloterdijk handicaprail (Long, mellow, perfect rail, and the run up has a roof)
– WTC / Zuid (Long marble curbs that just go on and on, with the occasional rail nearby)

Top 3 Skateparks:
– Olympiaplein (Perfect curbs, ledges, rails and everything else you could wish for in an park)
– Museumplein Miniramp (Be sure to check out the competition there as well!)
– Amstelparkje (Not the best park you’ll find but millions of spots around it)
