Paris AM 2016: Qualifiers


14 TH – 15 TH JUNE

Qualifiers for yesterday’s inaugural Nike SB Paris AM, hosted at one of Europe’s most important skate spots, Le Dome, had up and coming amateur skaters from across the continent compete on a selection of purpose built new features situated in the fountain, drained for the event.

In a set up that consisted almost exclusively of flat banks and ledges and with practice runs a precious commodity, skaters looking to get through to Wednesday’s final needed to adapt quickly to the challenging park, discover workable lines and show the judges their ability to be creative across the whole space. Clearly favoring true street skaters with the ability to work within a tight space and to lay down tricks in between sporadic rain, 10 skaters now get the opportunity to ride again today, where they meet 20 pre-qualified skaters including established names such as UK’s Casper Broker and Italy’s Jacopo Carozzi in the semi finals.

Scroll down for some Maksim Kalanep and Marcel Veldman photos from day one.
