London welcomes the Vans Downtown Showdown 2011. Twelve of the best skate teams are venturing from the far reaches of Europe for their chance to take part in a contest renowned to test skill, flare and creativity. Far removed from the usual format of any other skateboarding competition, the event will take place on special customized ramps which are all designed by the invited teams themselves. With the park layout being thrown out to the competing brands, the focus is not just on the rider’s ability and skills, but also on the individual teams to redefine the concept of a skate obstacle and ultimately design something in keeping with the authentic and murky London setting. Further information on the event can be found here.
