The report was published originally in Chris Egger's Blog.
The first Karlsruhe Longboard Open was a large success. Great autumn weather brought around 250 longboarders and spectators to the Real parking garage in Karlsruhe.
There was food and drinks …
… music and decoration …
… booths with equipment …
… and interested people of all ages.
The downhillsessions and races were a lot of fun.
There was a girls division too.
There were different kinds of races. The youngsters were done in a LeMans style start.
The "pros" did a single lane elemination followed by a head to head finale.
There were a few crashes without seriuos injuries.
n the end there were lots of happy faces in front of the darkening sky. Many thanks to the organizers. This was a large effort and we hope for next year!
