Amsterdam was invaded last weekend by American and Euro skateboarders coming together to skate the 4 obstacles at the Vans Downtown Showdown. Luan, Penny, Ben and Louie represented Flip and did a damn good job giving the competition a run for their money! With a 1st place team victory, two obstacle wins and a 2nd and 3rd place obstacle win we walked away with smiles, cheese, bikes and a decent chunk of the 50,000 Euro prize purse. Check out the coverage from Transworld, Thrasher, Vans and The Skateboard Mag.
