Redbull 'Hold The Line' - London Royal Albert Hall

Posted by Route One on 31st May 2016

Over the weekend Redbull invited some of Europe's best skaters (and an Aussie) to descend on London's world famous Royal Albert Hall for a skateboard competition like no other.

For all those that haven't witnessed the previous years of 'Redbull Bomb the line', a competition conceived to bring together the best skaters on offer to compile their best runs on a series of obstacles placed at an iconic location. The idea being each skater gets 10 minutes in their heat to put together the best series of tricks (a line) in order to win.
The last Bomb the line was held at Baustelle in Berlin, with 6,000+ people in attendance and flooded with 50 of the top skaters it was no jokes!
This time around the set up was a little more theatrical rather than huge gnarly doubles sets like in Berlin. Consisting of a medium sized handrail to start, kicker to block, electric box and rail combo, finished off nicely with a decent sized hubba complete with 9 stairs.

Watch below as Tommy Fynn, Albert Nyberg, Chris Pfanner, Nassim Guammaz, Denny Pham, Aurelien Giraud, Douwe Macare, Barney Page and more smash the Royal Albert hall set up to bits.
