On Saturday, 23rd of April 2011, the very first female “Görls”-Skateboardcontest Suck My Trucks is going down in the Skatehalle Berlin, Revaler Strasse 99 in Friedrichshain.
All girls from across Europe are fondly invited to join and they do, coming from Spain, Paris, Switzerland, the UK and all corners of Germany to bag a piece of the 2,000 euros prize purse. There’s a yummy BBQ and a warm up session the night before the contest for all early birds, while accreditation only starts around noon on the Saturday.
