Skateboard

Skateboarding started in the streets of California during the 1950’s as a passtime when there were no waves to surf upon. Half a century later this surfing on the streets has grown into a world wide phenomenon that is set to become an Olympic sport in 2020.

Amsterdam is no stranger to skaters and the skateboards. Not only did Amsterdam feature the country's very first halfpipe on the Waterlooplein, the Dutch capital also hosts the oldest skateboard store in Europe. So what better place to keep this tradition going then at the StreetstyleCon in Amsterdam.
