Who has never dreamt about building his favorite spot in his backyard, or in someone else's property ?
Then why not putting together two lines of curbs in the middle of the pelota game field and two massive ramps to ride Hossegor Casino's fronton wall ? ... that just happened, and was called 'cOLLAPSe Slappy Fest 2018'
To celebrate its 7th anniversary, cOLLAPSe Skateboards built an 80's style park on location, in order to organize 5 different best tricks sessions, for only one day of absolute madness.
Contest was open to everyone, the only rule?... dress code !
The Sporting Casino of Hossegor was literaly on fire. Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun just like a proper skateboarding session should be.
The tech dudes were at ease on the picnic table and the fire hydrant obstacles, then the old schoolers had their time to shine on the red and yellow curbs as well as the launch ramp, slappies, tweaks, one foot..no foot... and even 540's !
The stoke level was already at its peak when the guys started hitting the wall.
In the race for the highest ride, the 3 meters mark has been reached frontside and backside quite a few times
but in the end George Poole went higher than everybody else with a 3,50 meters high ride.
It was then time to split the ramp and go for the long distance wall rides and long distance rides we've seen!
5.05 meters in between the quarter pipes was the last distance to be cleared by GP again.
If you watched the video and got at the end of this article, now you know what we are talking about.
You can now listen to 'This Will Destroy Your Ears' and wait for next year's cOLLAPSe event !
