Eight years and running, the Vans Downtown Showdown has been bringing the top skateboarders from different brands together to compete in one of the most unique obstacle-driven contests around the world. This year, Flip, Blueprint, Palace, Antiz's teams created their own obstacles and went head to head in Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. Other teams that showed up to compete were Jart, Element, Spitfire, Toy Machine, Yama and Death.
To give you an idea of what we mean when we say unique, the first obstacle was Flip's multi-sided 8-footer which included quarters with a gap, banks to a ledge with enough angle for skaters to transfer from a quarter to a bank.
