Something else 5: Malmö Ultra Bowl in Sweden, Scandinavia

Sweden has always been a special place in connection with skateboarding. The first McTwist was landed there during one of the legendary summer camps back in the days and they have better Skateparks than most other european counties. Somehow people in Sweden are more openminded towards "new" things such as fingerboarding and for the organizers of the Malmö Ultra Bowl it was a natural thing having fingerboarding to be a part of the event-program right from the beginning.
Skateboarding and Fingerboarding are going hand in hand and Blackriver decided to go to Sweden with some of the FB- & SB teamriders and friends.
Lucky for us Flo from Steyer in Austria joined us on this roadtrip. He is one of the nicest persons alive and he is also always motivated to film tricks anytime. Flo just put a clip from the trip online and i think there is a lot of fun stuff in the video.
We had our base (tent-city) at the Sibbarp Skatepark. It is not the big skatepark where the ultra bowl was held at, it is a smaller park at the water directly next to the huge bridge over to Copenhagen Denmark.
Copenhagen and Malmö conected are the secret "skateboard-capital" in Europe...

You can find the clip here:

It is not everyday you talk half an hour with Bill Danforth (skateboard legend) telling you how cool
fingerboarding is !!!
