Posted 10/12/2012 by Vans Europe
Vans is pleased to announce that a year of local Shop Riot contests will culminate this weekend in an all out battle for bragging rights and prestige as the best skate shop teams in Europe & The Mid-East come together for the 2012 Shop Riot Finals at Münster’s Skaters Palace, the 13th and 14th October.
Local Shop Riot battles went down in Germany, UK, Czech Republic, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands & Luxemburg, Poland, Portugal, France and Israel. Each local country final is sending their best team to this weekend’s event.
Every team that qualified gets an all-expense paid trip to the 2-day finals, where they will skate for a slice of the 5000 Euro prize purse, blow off steam in club EULE during the Monster Party and go for a chance to win the coveted Grand Prize courtesy of Kingpin Magazine.
They say luck is preparedness meeting opportunity and one lucky team will be awarded the opportunity to welcome a photographer & filmer from Kingpin to their hometown for a week long skate session in their home environment resulting in a print article highlighting their local scene and a video edit for the web.
