The most exciting action sports event in the Baltics took place at the end of August in the skate mecca of Tallinn. Shop teams from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania competed against each other to be the official Baltic state participant at the Vans Shop Riot European finals in Cascais, Portugal. All competitors got an early glimpse of how the Portugal finals may feel as they battled it out under the sweltering heat in Tallinn. Following a hard-fought contest, it was Surfhouse from Estonia that took the top spot and earned their space in the finals. Hot on their heels were Boards.LV (Latvia) and in third place was OnWheels (Estonia). Mikel Vahermaa deservedly walked away with the Best Trick prize.
