You must be sleeping under a maaassive rock or on the other side of the moon to have missed the recent surge and growth in girls skateboarding but the Chix Go Crazy all girls bowl contest in the Cradle Skatepark in Brixlegg, Austria (right on the way to the infamous Zillertal valley that winter shred heads will know more than well) has actually been around for a while!
For three years now, it’s been luring board addicted girls from all corners of the country as well as Germany, Italy, and Switzerland to the picturesque Inntal valley to skate against the stunning backdrop of rocky cliffs and impressive peaks and enjoy the session of their dreams together. And that is not the slightest exaggeration as the bowl sports sections for at least three different levels, next to the epic cradle that we’ve already seen being looped – live. And while the back corner is so steep and deep that we’d fear to be swallowed forever, the front looks so nice mellow we’ve seriously played with the idea of dropping straight away ourselves (thank God we have trustful friends who prevent the greatest stupidities). Add a range of flat obstacles as well as ramps, corners and even a water gap and we honestly don’t know what else you could wish for. Except for legs that know how to make use of all that, maybe…
But until wishful thinking actually comes true, we’ll stick to cheering for all of you girls rocking out like crazy! See you in the park – August 30th 2014.
