May is pretty much the start of the European big skatepark Comps. For the end of May a few of the Slaptap Team plus owner Chris Leaver and blade photographer Sam Cooper decided to stick to our yearly routine and head over the big river to Strasbourg for NL contest and to see our buddy Nathan.
This also meant that Street skating was on the cards and lots off it. Check out this edit the team managed to film and Mark Worner beautifully edited once we got back. There is a nice write up about what went on on the Slaptap Blog page.
First blade competition of summer 2017: The Mccarren Money Maker. A small, mostly local, but great turnout. As always, it's great to see everyone after another long winter. Cheers! Music by: Cookin Soul.

Daniel Nielsen made another full length profile for us again! Check this technical wizard out. Daniel's girlfriend Nadja helped him a lot with filming. While filming they found out that she was dealing with cancer. Luckily she is all good today, and therefore Daniel wants to dedicate this edit to her.
