Norwegian Skateboarding in 2016
Join us for a look at some of the ups and downs of Norwegian skateboarding in 2016.

Thomas Olsen started up Daggers Skate Co.

X Games Oslo was held, and was a hughe success that broke televison viewer records. And it gave us Skur 13. But it seems there will be No X Games skateboarding in Oslo in 2017, even if they want to arrange it.


Nyjah Huston took first place at X Games Oslo 2016.

Michael Sommer was invited to Battle of the Berrics, and made it to the finals. He was also featured in a Next New Wave video and a Trickipedia clip.

Several Norwegian skateboarders were featured on Thrashers Skateline. First out was Karl Fredrik Frli in March, Hermann Stene in September and Gard Hvaara in December.

Betongpark probably built the most skateparks, but there were also others delivering skateparks in Norway in 2016.

Some of the parks built even got noticed outside our borders, such as Sknevik Skatepark that made Kingpins list of Europes Best Skate Plazas and the design of Oslo Skatehall.

There were more active Indoor Skateparks in Norway in 2016 than the year before.

Pump Tracks also seems to have been popular this year.

Looks like Norway is having a vert ramp revival, with a new vert at Notodden Skatehall and a new vert at Oslo Skatehall, as well as a vert being planned in Fredrikstad. The Hang Up and Tjme Skate Galla vert contests also seem to be drawing more and more skaters and spectators.

Skateboarding will be included in the Olympic Games, and Norwegian skaters have divided opinions on this.

NORB, the Norwegian skateboard association, joined ISF, hired an employee, started preparing for the Olympics, joined NIF, and started the process of finding their place within Norwegian sports. But then a power struggle rose up along with ae suggestion to give funding to unorganised sports.

More skateboarders got organised, mostly to realise proper skateparks in their area.

More skateboard organisations were partisipating in the 17th May celebration.
