The skateboarding during Snipes’ Berlin Squad up contest, made young and old scream and shout. The Salty Boys ended up taking home the prize purse and everybody got a champagne shower. But a lot of other good stuff happened and that is what this video recap is for.
Last Saturday marked the start of a new series of skateboard events throughout Europe, the Snipes Squad Up competition kicked off in Berlin.
From all over Germany, they came, groups of skaters ready to compete for the 10.000 prize purse. And to everybody’s excitement, it wasn’t just your usual suspects, Crews like Seoul2k and Europe Co. competed as well. Together with the locals from Märkisches Viertel Snipes managed to create an eclectic atmosphere that made for a good day of skating.
Check out the images and catch the vibe.

I met Justin Sommer the first time when he just started skating. So due to we both always have shared the same local spots in Berlin, I had the chance to kind of follow each and every step of his career in which taking part in the Tampa AM contest might be the biggest step up to now. Moreover, Snipes organized a little sort of documentary to give an insight of how this whole one-of-a-kind experience might have felt like for Justin.
