Get Out The Way

29th of april | Museumplein
Right After the Dutch Open Championship Spine Ramp we will depart from the Museumpsquare on an epic adventure through the city. Starting point will be the infamous Museumplein ramp, right in the city centre. Your objective is simple; team up with your buddy and get from checkpoint A to B as fast as you can. Every checkpoint has it’s own little assignment for you both to complete. Make sure you film your tricks and post them on Instagram, as proof for the judges. We will reveal the checkpoints at the start, it’s up to you which route you’ll take. We’ll be waiting at the finish line where cold beers and the party await.

Spectator level: it is only possible to watch people cross the finish. Best way to do this is with a beer.
Beginners participation level:
as long as you can skate around the city and are not afraid to try a few jumps you are good
Amateur participation level:
 Allot of fun for amateurs to team up with a buddy and cruise the city.

Real Street Amsterdam

1st of may | Vu curbs, Boelelaan metro station
The Real Street Amsterdam is not going to be just a street comp. It’s going to be a bunch of people watching and screaming while their favorite skaters lace sick tricks on some of Amsterdam’s best spots. If you’re a good skater you definitely need to come and grab your share of the 2500 euro’s in price money! That’s a lot of money but besides that there’s also a lot of fun prizes for things like the worst slam, most creative trick and best junior of the day. All by all it’s about to be a fun day of hammers, cheering and drinking some cold beers. Make sure to come and also bring your non-blader friends!

Spectator level: this is likely to be the most spectaculair thing of the whole USWA
Beginners participation level:
beginners should come and participate in cheering!
Amateur participation level:
 Try to prove yourself on on the streets against the pro’s, go for it!
