From May 20th – 22nd, the infamous CLASH in the Skatehalle Berlin presented by Relentless Energy Drinks charges into its seventh year! Prepare yourself for world class action by world famous pros, the come back of the Vert Comp after four years of abstinence and of course fun fun fun in super chilled atmosphere in Berlin-Friedrichshain.
CLASH 2011 is held as an invitational competition with an overall price money of 12.500 Euros up for grabs and has a new format this year. The Street Comp will feature a “First Try or Die”-intro trick in the the semi-finals. Thus, every skater gets the opportunity to “drop the hammer” pre- jam. In the Bowl Contest, which is presented by Zimtstern this year, riders will commence starting in single runs and only the “Death and Glory”-final is held in jam-format; securing a thrilling finish. The Vert Comp also has a new format and is judged in three different categories: taken into account are the best run, the best trick around the extension corner and the “Kings of Doubles”-score. This will guarantee an electrifying vibe and jaw-dropping excitement for the crowd.
As it’s an invitational event, there won’t be a regular qualification round but there will be numerous wild card session at Skatehalle’s Revaler Straße venue. For the vert comp, the only two available wild cards are given out during a vert-session for Jürgen Horrwarth’s colourway release by etnies shoes on Friday, May 6th. For the street and bowl (acting as the unofficial kick-off to the CLASH 2011 weekend) the “Terror Session” is put in place on Friday, May 20th. Here, those who dare, can acquire one of 15 wild cards in street, and straight after that, one out of ten bowl wild-cards. Whoever walks away empty handed in the “clash” for wild cards, can still enter the open “Cash for Tricks” session on selected street course obstacles on Sunday afternoon for their personal claim to fame.
