The 5th Annual TXOTX! Mini Ramp Contest 2011 This Weekend

Back again with the 5th TXOTX! Mini Ramp Contest already, time flies doesn’t it?! Volcom has put this contest on the skateboard event calendar for a bunch of top skaters who return every year to the Durango, a town in the Basque country close to Bilbao. And to celebrate this 5th edition, the cash prize money has been extended to 10 000€! As with every year, the ramp will be freshened up, the free cider will flow and the entry is free! If you can get there, then don’t miss it.

And these big events are luckily for us being brought to us with a live webcast which we’ll either link you up to or you can watch right here on Europeskate! This is going to be a long webcast weekend with the Pro-tec Pool Party taking place in Orange, California later on Saturday so make sure you come back tomorrow for all of the action the whole day…

To get you a bit hungry and wanting to see more, here’s a clip from last year’s skate action and for all of the directions to get to Curango and the contest, the schedule and the contest flyer, just click on the “Continue reading” button below the video.
