The Vert Attack contest has been an absolute ‘must attend’ for any vert skater in Europe and even from overseas. There´s been frequent visitors over the years. This year some heated sessions started the week before the contest and became more intense every day. The Vert Attack is organized by skaters and not some television station or sugar water company and it shows in the fun and good times everybody has at this contest. Thanks go out to John Magnusson and the Bryggeriet crew who did a great job. If you missed the action, check the videos and make sure to check it out next year or go to the Ultra Bowl contest in August. It is another great contest these guys host every year. For some more info, videos, etc. go here: http://skatemalmo.se/category/vert-attack-7-2/  – Gerd Rieger
