SB Events hosted a unique head-to-head box battle during the Urban Sports Week Amsterdam: The Amsterdam Knockout.

I did a little live stream during the USWA – Amsterdam Knockout!
Check it out and make sure to be there next years!


The Amsterdam Knock-out is a head to head battle on a specially designed box. In heats of 3 minutes the riders battle each other, with their best technical grinds and one will advance to the next round. 2 skaters will reach the finals and go head to head for the win.

After qualifications the 16 best inline skaters battled each other in this tournament. Lacing their best tricks representing their blue or red corner, they tried to knock each other out of the tournament.

For the Amsterdam Knockout we went back to the core of street skating: a simple box that triggers creativity, style and flow. The inline skaters, judges and audience had and awesome evening and are eager to come back to the Museumplein next year!
