Vitus Silas Sondrup and Antonie Bakosova are the 2022 World Rookie Skateboard Champions

An amazing Skatehalle Innsbruck hosted the best young skaters from WRT events

For the third time we have been named the World Rookie Skateboard Champions, none other than the future stars of world skateboarding! The three days in Innsbruck offered a real life experience, not just a competition among the best young skaters in the world.

In a great international scenario, Innsbruck welcomed more than 70 skaters, from 14 different countries: Switzerland, Italy, Netherland, Czech Republic, Portugal, Romania, Bulgaria, Denmark, Israel, Greece, Scotland, Germany and of course, Austria. All these young rippers have been able to live a great life experience, also with many lifestyle activities: Brand Village with Gummi Love (Safer Sex) and Viva Con Agua (Water Care Project) and the really appreciated Mini Ramp Session (cash for trick format) in the City Downtown on Friday evening.

Saturday during the Best Foot Forward contest rookies have been the possibility to training with all the participants and many of them participate also at this contest. But THE day was Sunday 2nd October, where all the people attend the new World Rookie Champions!

Vitus Silas Sondrup from Denmark became the World Rookie Skateboard Champion 2022 with a solid run and solid tricks, in front of Vilém Jakes from the Czech Republic and Yakov Terrell from Israel. The new World Rookie Skateboard Champion on the girl’s side is Antonie Bakosova from the Czech Republic, follow from Daysi Buchanan from Scotland and Bettina Burgi from Switzerland.

In the Grom Men category the Teixeira’ brothers from Portugal hit the contest. Madu won in front of his younger brother Pacal, follow by Tymen Overbeck from Netherlands. On the girl’s side, Laura Zackova from the Czech Republic won up Julia Plaggenborg from Netherlands and Gaia Urbinati from Italy.

Curious to know the big prizes for them? The Male Rookie Champion receives a wildcard to the legendary Simple Session 2023, and many podium skaters where awarded with invitations to the Mystic Sk8 Cup 2023. A Golden ticket for the first Grom Men and the first Grom Women, so they can participate in the all World Rookie Tour Skateboard events 2023 and on top of these amazing prizes all the podium riders got many products from our partners Blue-Tomato, TSG, and Jail Jam.
