For the pleasure of the eyes, they slide along the grafitied walls and curves of the ring, they jump on a rail, sliding, ridding, flying. Tricks and treats, the competitors dance high in the air, to the sounds of hip hoppy raggea tunes. Everyone is happy, the festival is a good time spent in a relaxed atmosphere.
Under the eyes of the spectators, the artists show their best to the jury, who notes each trick. The announcer warms up the crowd gathering with hip hip hip hourrays and technical terms. The 13 to 16 show their tricks, then comes the more than 17. The winners go home with various prizes, offered by nomade, the event organizer. Nomadshop sponsors offer gifts certificate, DVD’s and other surprises to the happy winners.
Everyone is happy, it’s another week end in Paris. Once the festival finished, the skate ring will go back to it’s usual self. Open for all and all day long, the skate park welcomes anyone who wants to slide, ride, and jump, just for the fun and pleasure of!
Let it roll, let it roll, as the song goes. Have a nice week end:)
