Previously: Conference Session @ EGP18 (Paris, France – 2009).
EGP18 is the biggest indoor skatepark in Paris (France).
In october 2009, Conference was in France with Chris Farmer, George Demetrious & Jeff Stockwell.
Some french skaters (Romain Godenaire, Warren Digne, Patrick Francisco, Anthony Finocchiaro, Xavier Raimbault) were present for the session! ENJOY.
The Egp 18, new skatepark in Paris – 3200m² (1m is about 3,3 feet) & cost about 4.7 millions of euros was skatable this week although the opening was planned next week.
This was a really nice thing, but about ten Paris 18 locals came last sunday (the skatepark is freely accessible) and a skater was beaten up by those guys. The skater ended his weekend at the hospital, he even got hit several time with a skateboard’s metal trucks, his helmet was broken by the violence of the shock.
No guards reacted when those violent acts happened…
Le Parisien, newspaper article about the incident:
Egp18 : The New Skatepark In Paris Is Ready To Rock ! The first part of the park is skatable, all the Paris skating associations tested it in the last days. The park will open for sure before the 15th of February 2008.
