Blast! The Big One 2016_Photo report.

The 7th edition of the Blast! The Big One took place yesterday at the Society Plaza Skatepark in Seregno, Italy, under a warm sun and a perfect blue sky. Old and new faces showed up at this classic invitational contest organized by Blast! Distribution, presented by Vans “Off The Wall” and supported by Almost Skateboards, Official Hats, Tensor Trucks, Monster, Nixon and Andale Bearings. Many tricks went down the gap, the rail and the hubba… and it’s always good to see new guys skating with style and land amazing tricks in a few tries…The event is becoming bigger and bigger year after year and more and more people come to watch the contest and enjoy the day.
