WINTERCLASH 2018

GET YOUR SKATES GLOVES ON, WINTERCLASH IS COMING!

From thursday 15th – till saturday 17th february, one of the biggest aggressive inlineskate contest (if not the biggest) will find place at Area 51 Skatepark in Eindhoven.  

The first ever winterclash competition took place in 2005 in Aurich/Germany and was created by Johannes Jacobi, who we can now name ‘the winterclash legend’.


Riders from 45 different countries will come over to Netherlands to be a part of Winterclash 18. 
Last year winners: Antony Pottier (PRO), Mery Muñoz (GIRL), Dominic Bruce (AMATEUR), Martin Danning (JUNIOR).

Next to a really sick competition with the most creative tricks you can (or can’t) imagine, there will be a ‘Flight School’ – Winterclash training camp, where Pro skaters Montre, Quinny and Nils will teach the know how of competition skating. Also, there will be a Tradeshow, Hang Losers Super Bowl, Movie Show, Loco Skates Rail Jam, Presentations, USD Best Trick Award,… and the Afterclash (party).

Address: Klokgebouw 51 – 5617 AB / Strijp-S – Eindhoven / Netherlands.
