On May 22th, it took place the first Soul Hands Art & Surfskate Festival edition. It was a big success for a unique event, wherein art and surfskate merged together in the wonderful location of Onda’d Legn, in Torre Pedrera.
Over 50 stand -ready to expose their amazing products- joined in an amazing day of art and surf at Bagno Elio 70/71, spot of surfskate ramp Onda’d Legn, high quality ramp realized with fiberglass by a company from Cesena, Whitezu. Surskate is a new kind of sport, born a few years ago and which is rapidly developing. It aims to reproduce surf’s movements and offer training even when there are no waves. Thanks to Onda’d Legn ramp and his wave shape, every practitioner can try any “surf-alike” trick using these new skates.
The day was full of events. There were many appointments and also 2 contests arranged just for fun, since every participant received a prize from the sponsors. Anyway, we congratulate with three of the best athletes: Stefano, Matteo and Marco. We are not ashamed to say they were pretty awesome ! Watch the video realized by 4storm and 4surf and judge for yourself ! In the morning, after stands’ opening, there were room only for longboard skate, that competed in the first edition of “Longoboard dancing“.
More than 50 surf’s fans and craftsmen who joined in the event offered many awards for the surfskate event of the evening, wherein contestants showed their best repertoire of tricks in front of a nice and careful jury. Speaker of the event was Marco Camagni, surfer of Whitezu team, who lent his voice in order to provide a professional comment to all the spectators.
The day continued with DJ Pasteris music, beer, rivers of wine offered by ZioBaffa and sensational grilled sardines. In conclusion, during sunset, it took place a session of tarp surfing, a pretty funny game in which a wave is reproduced through a blue tarp.
Mario Petrella and Chiara Delli Carri documented the day collecting a lot of photographic and video material. In this article we propose you a preview of both, but keep on following us because we are going to show a lot of others amazing things.
