Browse the challenges
Select what suits you. There are challenges for all skill levels and different prizes for different categories. Make a plan for what challenges the team wants to take on over the weekend.
Go skate – and film
Film with your phone or video setup.
Some challenges are judged on quality of edit and filming, so a more ambitious camera setup may help with these challenges. There is more to a good edit than the camera, though, so don’t worry – many teams will only be using phones.
Submit your challenges
The deadline for most of the challenges is Sunday 16:00.
Some challenges are time-sensitive.
The NBD (Never Been Done) -challenges mean first submitted gets points for that trick. Make sure to post immediately after landing so as not to risk someone else claiming the same trick.
Other challenges get bonus points for first submission. This means the first edit submitted gets points as well as the best edit submitted.
Follow the other teams’ progression on #skatemalmostreet2020 and @skatemalmo.se
Generally, challenges are judged based on creativity, vibe, quality of edit and level of skating.
Some challenges are, however, judged by specific conditions. How each challenge is judged and how many points are rewarded can be seen in the challenge list.
There will be many different prizes for different challenges. The top scoring teams will receive cash prizes, but level of skill is only one of many factors considered in the judging. All skaters have a good chance of doing well and many challenges will receive specific prizes in addition to points.
There will also be a cash prize for the ‘Recap Edit Challenge’ where teams have the week after the event to edit together a recap-video of the weekend.
Skate Malmö recommends strict adherence to the recommendations of social distancing. As such, no gatherings will be organized and no live prize-ceremony held.
Results will be posted on Sunday evening on www.skatemalmo.se

Skate at Your Own Risk
Participation is strictly voluntary.
Skate Malmö does not encourage risk-taking. Low-risk challenges offer as many or more points as high-risk challenges.
Skate at a level you are comfortable with and select challenges accordingly.

Skateboarding in the City
Skate Malmö Street is about allowing skateboarding to be part of the life of the city. How this takes place is up to you. If you want others to respect your skating, respect other users of the city – pedestrians, cyclists and others. Also make sure to respect traffic regulations.
Thank you for taking part
Go get it.
