The Vans Shop Riot 2017 Italy Qualifiers went off last weekend, with a full recap letting you see exactly what went down in Palazzolo sull’Oglio’s Wave Skatepark. Check the photos, footage and write up below and get to the UK leg in Hull on the 29th and 30th of July!
“This past weekend Vans Shop Riot headed to Wave Skatepark, for the Italian leg of Shop Riot 2017.
22 stores from all over Italy battled it out in order to be crowned the “Best Skate Shop” of this peninsula, whilst earning a spot at the next
European finals in Milan.
After a fierce qualifying session which went up until the last trick, “Milanese” born Tony Marello’s shop provided a consistent performance spanning across the entire park, earning them fourth place. Paper Shop from Romagna finished up third with an array of technical tricks across some of the gnarliest parts of the park. Second place went to Bastard Store, however they suffered through an injury to local ripper Aref Koushesh, who could not skate in the final, but was replaced by Edo Paris. Needless to say, the team didn’t give up despite the setback with Jacopo Carozzi literally on fire. On the day, the spoils went to Flame Shop, who killed the rail with continuous flip tricks, and managed to tear up every part of the giant concrete park.”
