MTV Voices (Amsterdam): Skate This City

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

The MTV EMA touches down this weekend in Amsterdam and from the buzz in the city, there’s no doubt it’s going to be an out of this world party.

MTV Voices (Amsterdam): Skate This City

You might know it as a city of culture, canals, coffee houses, and chill – and home to MTV Voices first ever Pop-Up but what’s it really like to live in the “Jamaica of Europe”?

Four Amsterdammers show us their city, from the blades and ramps that make it their home. If you don’t like big falls, from big heights, probably don’t watch… Article on

August van der Velden is killing the streets of the Netherlands in his latest street profile, lacing tricks on steep rails as if they are some random practice rails. He’s known for his clean style, and came in second at the Summerclash 2013 miniramp finals.

Summerclash 2013: Pro Clips by Thijs Tel

Monday, June 24th, 2013

The Summerclash 2013 passed by way too fast. What started with a thunderstorm, broken trees and heavy rain on Thursday night, turned into a 72 hour rush, packed with the best street and miniramp blading Europe has seen in a long time, wild camping parties, nonstop sunshine and a best vibe one can hope for.

700 bladers and friends gathered from 30 different nations and turned the Mellowpark into an official blading festival.

Summerclash 2013

As you can see, the results look different to what you’re used to. We decided to split the first place between four people. Its not because the judges were too lazy to decide, its simply because the Summerclash and blading in general shouldn’t be about egos, rankings or pretending we are something that we simply are not.

The finals turned into the craziest thing happening in blading for a long long time. Everyone sessioned and pushed the other to go bigger and better. It wasn’t about the biggest spin at the biggest ramp, it was about 5 guys ripping a real-street-trash park.

Clips featuring Montre Livingston, Nils Jansons, David Sizemore, Nick Lomax and Anthony Pottier. Music by Daan Hegt (

Five guys that showed how cool and mature blading can look like. Not just a best trick comp at one big obstacle.

Everyone in the finals skated different sections of the park and picked their favorite obstacle. A bunch of people that love blading all skated at the same level while being surrounded by another 700 people that were screaming and celebrating blading.

Having a 4-person tie was just the right thing to do in that moment.

Tyron Ballantine

Tyron Ballantine is a name that doesn’t really need an introduction. This dutch skater has been killing street ever since he started blading, and it doesn’t look like he will stop doing so anytime soon.

All footage was shot for Children of the Future and part of it was used, but not all clips!
