Get Set Go!
ALL GIRL STREET CONTEST
The third edition of Get Set Go!, an all girl street contest, will be held during the annual Malmö Ultra Bowl, on August 17-19th. The contest takes place at Stapelbäddsparken (Malmö, Sweden) and as usual we're hoping to see female skateboarders from all over the world.
Stapelbäddsparken is a world class concrete park, known for the bowl area where you'll find endless lines. It's located in the West Harbour (Västra Hamnen), pretty close to the Malmö Central Station.
One component of the Malmö Ultra Bowl schedule is the Get Set Go! contest, that you'll find next to the bowls, on the street course. Earlier years we've seen some extraordinary skateboarding from girls like Annie Guglia (CAN), Emma Lindgren (SWE), Lois Pendlebury (UK) and Kristin Ebeling (US). But winning isn't everything, the most important thing is having fun and to take part in the Get Set Go! spirit. All girls are welcome to participate in Get Set Go!, no matter age, level or where you come from. Don't hesitate to enter the contest, it's for free!
With everything that's going on in Malmö this weekend, we can assure you don't want to miss this. Except for Get Set Go! and Malmö Ultra Bowl, there will be super ramp demos and mini ramp session in the center of Malmö, as part of the annual Malmö festival. Here you will find concerts, exhibitions, food from all over the world etc. Bring your friends!
