2024 WRT Skateboard Kick-off event in Lanzarote

World Rookie Tour is next to announce the 2024 WRT Sk8 Tour starting from a new kick-off event in Canary Island: on the 27th of April, we will kick off with our 2024 tour in Lanzarote.

Yes, you heard it right! Canary Islands! The contest will happen in Extreme Center Lanzarote indoor skatepark, which is run and operated by two brothers: Diego and Gustavo Rosende, a family team dedicated to their work in skateboarding.

Diego and Gustavo joined forces with World Cup Skateboarding Contest Director Iztok Sumatic to throw down one hell of a start to the 2024 season.

At the moment Extreme Center is going through a big reconstruction and we can’t wait to show you the photos of a new skatepark once it’s done.

Make sure you follow our newsletters as we will soon come up with a more thorough competition plan and information relevant to lodging and transport.

The complete 2024 WRT Skateboarding Calendar will be announced soon: stay tuned for more information.

Meanwhile, you can check Extreme Center’s IG: @extreme_center

World Rookie Skateboard Finals successfully completed

Mystic Sk8 Park, Štvanice Island, Prague, CZE, 07. Oct. 2023

Mystic Sk8 Park in Prague, Czech Republic, welcomed 80 young skaters from 20 nations from all over the world, with teams representing Europe, Asia, America, Oceania and, for the first time in WRT Sk8 Finals, Africa. After a season of qualifying events all around the countries, the 2023 World Rookie Skateboard Finals welcomed the energies and the positive vibes of tomorrow’s stars and offered all participants an immersive experience in the skateboard culture.

The event took place in a great international scenario: Mystic Skatepark is an iconic location on an island surrounded by river Vltava where the legendary Mystic Sk8 Cup started at the beginning of this century. The park is located in the middle of the beautiful city of Prague which, with its cultural and artistic attractions, offers riders and crew a unique travel and lifestyle experience.

Andres Martin Gramaglia Fusconi – 2023 World Rookie Champion

The skateboarders showcased an extremely high level of riding during a full day of qualification and finals and they competed for World Rookie Champions titles and tickets to world-class events such as Mystic Sk8 Cup and Simple Session.

In the Female category, British ripper Abbie Nicole Burns resulted the best in the comp and conquered the 2023 World Rookie Champion title. At only 14 years old, Abbie is the youngest WRT Skateboard Champion we ever had. Laura Zackova from the Czech Republic and Florence Ulrich Adcocks from Germany completed the female podium.

Girl Podium:first place Abbie Nicole Burns (GBR), second place Laura Zackova (CZE) and third place Florence Ulrich Adcocks (GER)

In the Grom Male division for under 14 years old riders, French rising star Axel Van Cuyck conquered the World Grom Champion Title, followed on the podium by Jesse Kloes (GER) and Mussie Michael (ERI).

Grom Podium: first place Axel Van Cuyck (FRA), second place Jesse Kloes (GER) and third place Mussie Michael (ERI)

In the top division of the event, the 15-19 years old rookies, we watched an amazing battle for the podium. With tons of “Italian Style” and very technical lines, Andres Martin Gramaglia Fusconi won the event and was crowned the 2023 World Rookie Champion. At only 0.3 points behind Rocco Mueller (SUI) got second place while the third position was conquered on his very last run by Gabriele Fabi from Rome, Italy.

Rookie Podium: first place Andres Martin Gramaglia Fusconi (ITA), second place Rocco Mueller (SUI) and third place Gabriele Fabi (ITA).

The competition was great but the World Rookie Skateboard Final was not only focused on the competitive side of skateboarding. In fact, the program also featured a lot of lifestyle activities to offer a unique experience to everybody: GummyLove “safe sex workshops”, social dinners, street sessions and an exclusive “Meet & Shred” session at Maxplace skatepark with local skateboard hero Maxim Habanec.

We apologize for the announcement a few days before the event, but we thought it was better to do it like this, than not do it at all.
