Meet up – and first spot, my atention was suprised by the amount of new beginners who have their contest before main event . So many so talented kids busting a show for first time in this contest, propably first time in any contest. And these kids made clear that there will be new generation coming, well under it´s way.

Second spot shoved us some beatifull blue sky when everyone was arriving to this nice C-ledge.
After short warmup skaters were divided to 3 groups and given a timelimit for executing their stunts. Skaters started to rip back to back, and show potential to finals from the second they´r heat started. Spot two handled. and it was time for a brief moment to eat lunch and get drinks from store.
