Skate Malmö: Street recap videos
Three Days, Three Spots
Friday. The ‘secret’ spot was revealed as Scaniaplattan, the sunken stone platform by the sea. Skateable sculptures by Rich Holland, new granite blocks, music and an open session got things going in spite of the the Swedish team kicking a ball around somewhere. And some looming cloudcover.
Gustav Tœnessen’s bank flippery, Ville Vester’s mega-grind to fakie on the centre-piece and Alexis Sablone’s flip over-down were definite standouts. Definitely a stage for more skate-related activities in the future.
Saturday brought the third annual Back to Värnhem comp. A combination of lines and jams, the comp squeezes a lot out of the riders. in the end, the finalists again pushed it one stage further than thought possible. Alexis’ flip-50 down the hubba and switch flip down the stairs, Herman’s constant barrage of tricks and Filip Almqvist’s switch destruction had the winners set. Sunshine, local flavour, hyped crowd and a nice new setup again brought the event to a close with smiles all around and a post-event session still brewing. Nisse Ingemarsson closed the day with flip bs nosebluntslide on the gap-hubba. Over and out.
Sunday eased into the Svampen Session. A day of skating at Malmö’s favourite plaza. With the edition of sculptures, new ledges and kickers, the square had new opportunities for sessions. A line comp, kicker-over-grate/bin session and up-gap-down session with cash thrown in to fuel the fire made for a mellow, but hyped Sunday. Another sunny sunday chock-full of skating, lounging, good tunes and food drew the weekend to a close.
Thanks to all who came down and hope to see you again next year. Video recaps @skatemalmo.se instagram and @freemagazine soon.

Skate Malmö Street
Skateboarding belongs in the streets and Skate Malmö: Street, June 17-19, is the event to show it.
Skate Malmö, Streetlab and Nike SB bring you three days of sessions, comps and good times around Malmö’s street-spots. The 2016 edition brings good crew, three spots and prizes to get things brewing. It’s on!
For the past few years, The City of Malmö has collaborated with the skaters of Malmö to activate new spaces in the city for skateboarding. Värnhemstorget came first, followed by Konsthallstorget. Each activation means introducing durable street furniture to a new spot for the long-term. Each year of Skate Malmö: Street will give skaters something new to skate.
The girls are back in town for 2016! Tösabidarna and No Limit will be rolling deep for Skate Malmö: Street, inviting over some international visitors and a good local crew. Same prize-money, same setup, no bullshit. All good times.
Flying in: Don’t make the mistake of booking flights to Malmö, connecting in Copenhagen. Malmö is just across the bridge from CPH Airport and the train pulls into the station. Getting the train is your best bet.
Driving in: Check the map. Bob’s your uncle.
Buses: Central station, Värnhem, Södervärn or Triangeln are all close to the Skate Malmö: Street spots.
Cycling: Once in Malmö, try the new ‘Malmö by bike’ rental bike system. Get an account here:
Saturday brings the third annual Back to Värnhem comp at Värnhemstorget with lines, jams and good times. 11-19. After the comp we gather at Far i Hatten in Folkets Park for a Streetlab table-tennis session, drinks and good times.
Sunday it’s time to take to Malmö’s most recent favourite plaza for the Svamp Session with tricks-for-cash, skate-for-food and more. @svampenbois are hyping this one. 14-18.
