The 13th annual World Cup Skateboarding contest Mystic Sk8 Cup 2006 finished on Sunday, July 9th. For the whole weekend, more than 100 professional and amateur riders competed in three disciplines - Street Jam, Vert and for the first time in the Bowl. The Bowl was designed by world known designer and skateboard legend Dave Duncan with technical tips from professional skateboarder Brian Patch.

It was a victory of US woman skateboarding in the Street Jam with Lacey Baker on the first place and Lauren Perkins on the third. On the second place, between these two, ended Evelien Boulliart from Belgium.

Thousands of spectators were awaiting the man’s Street Jam with the worlds top riders on the start list. The winner was Brazilian Ricardo Oliveira Porva, second place took his fellow countryman Daniel Vieira and Ronnie Creager from USA finished the third.

Brian Patch didn´t give a chance to anyone and took the first place in the Bowl contest. Sandro Dias from Brazil finished second and Daniel Cardone from Italy third.

The Mystic skate park hosting the competition is the only open air venue on the WCS circuit. It is protected from weather elements by a mobile roofing system, designed brand new every year especially for MSC and stays open for public after the competitions.

Second place in the Vert Best trick exhibition took Sascha Muller (Frontside CAB to Five-O) and the third placce went to Andy Scott (Frontside Tailslide to Shuvit).

There is always a large program of performances and shows at the Mystic Sk8 Cup. There were many DJs, video projections, skateboard movie projections, contemporary art exhibition Subkultura, graffiti performances on 40m long wall and various workshops. British band Freestylers performed in their original line up performing live on the main stage on Saturday night. Their show, together with DJ Krush who performed at MSC 03 were the two best shows in the history of MSC.
The Global Station zone was also a part of the entertainment program that presented many well known bands and DJs such are German project N.O.H.A., Japanese girl duo Papaya Paranoia or Dutch DJ superstar Joost Van Bellen.
