Eat Concrete – The Benelux Championship 2018

The crew behind Eat Concrete once again welcomes longboarders, inline skates and drift trike riders to Gros-Fays in Belgium.

This year, from 10th to 13th of May, Eat Concrete will host the Benelux Championship of Downhill Skateboarding. Belgian, Dutch and Luxembourg racers will compete for the title of their own country. As a surplus there is also an international open competition for any nationality to attend.

Eat Concrete - 2017 moments

Furthermore,  girls, groms, classic- and streetlugers get their separate stage. The road is 3 km long with 3 corners but is not super hard to skate. This means that to win the Championship you have to skate almost technically perfect and push as hard as possible from the start. Choosing your line and moments very carefully during the race will give anyone an advantage.

This will be the first year that we will host the Benelux Championship. It’s quite the step forward in comparison to only the Belgian Championship. We want to support our neighbouring countries and got this question to expand the competition many times. Well, this will be the year. ~ Jasper D’haene

In addition the crew is also supporting the start-up for the Dutch Championship in the future.

Additional information

The camping headquarters are placed 10 km away from the track, in Graide, Rue de Naomé. There attendees will find a mini ramp, bar, music, chill-out zone, indo boards, slacklines…From Thursday untill Saturday the crew also organised performances and DJ’s.

If you come to our event we do not want you to worry about anything, we provide all you need. Including insurance and medical aftercare, if anything happens there is a medical team with ambulance present to take you to the nearest hospital. No medical bills because we cover this. We have a professional catering team to give you a taste of our Flemish Cuisine. ~ Jasper D’haene

The organisers describe the event as a good mixture between competition and recreation, suitable for any skill level. With a four day race and two days of freeriding, the rider’s limit is set to 240 total, with 60 spots available for freeriders.

      Hey Noah… Not sure if I understand your comment. If you’re asking for a tutorial on how to slide, please search on YouTube “how to slide on a longboard” and you should get many tutorials listed. If that’s not what you’re asking, please get in touch via info@longboardmagazine.eu, we’ll be glad to help if we can. Cheers! Mihael
