The judges decided: Due to the bad conditions expected for tomorrow night, Red Bull Bomb the Line is postponed for a day. Other than that, the contest taking place at the main spot of the German capital will take off as planned and will even be better than the first one. Yes, that’s possible.
More judges, better obstacles and an incredible line-up of skateboarders from all around the world are the ingredients to make it happen. We have the German crew consisting of skaters like Willow, Lem Villemin, Mark Frölich and Denny Pham, backed up by an international field of big names like SOTY Chris Cole, Ryan Decenzo and Louie Lopez. There are also nine wildcard winners who fought for their ticket to Berlin in the various DC Wildcard Sessions all over the country.
Other than that, everything stays the same: It’s all about the best line possible. Participants first hit the infamous Baustelle-doubleset including a specially installed hubba, then hit the brand new street gap which is even wider than last year’s, and on it goes to a ten-stair-set with handrail. Six jam-session heats with a total running time of 20 minutes, 60 skaters, 100 metres, three obstacles, one line. Be there!
