The six stars skateboard challenge was insane! We have to say, the street competition at the highest level since the Alp Challenge back in the year 2000 so far. There was just one difference: The Alp Challenge was packed with international skateboarding superstars. The six stars final on the other hand, was packed with the “now” & “future” of Austrian skateboarding. At least 80% of the names, we are pretty sure you have never heard before outside of Austria. We were kind of shocked which bangers went down in the 15 minute final jam and decided that there was no need for a best trick session later on. The best tricks have been done already – the cow was slaughtered! After this crazy jam, there was just one rank where all judges agreed. 1st place went to Kilian “The Killer” Heuberger from Munich. He destroyed every obstacle in the park! The rest was pretty un-judgeable; also the other 6 finalists were killing it and throwing down heavy. Anyway in this session everybody was a winner and we are happy to say, that there is no longer just a Pfanner, Forstner, Dietrich or Margreiter that skate on an outstanding level. Since this session we know Austria has a hella lot more skaters to offer! One thing is clear, this event has potential to become another sick skateboarding show in Europe! We definitely will support the Six Star guys making this happen again next year, bigger, better and with more European riders. Words: Chris Cab & Asti
