The event

This years Mystic Sk8 Cup is the 14th annual contest held in Prague, Czech Republic. MSC is a point event of the World Cup Skateboarding series. From Friday the 13th till Sunday 15th the world´s best skaters will compete for 40 thousand US dollars in three disciplines – streetstyle, vertical ramp and bowl. We will also have a Best Trick contests in each discipline. This year the street style course was made by Radek Teichmann, well known Mystic Constructions skatepark designer. The local bowl was designed by world renome skatepark designer Dave Duncan and pro rider Brian Patch.

Thanks to the support of Pavel Bém, the Prague´s city mayor, the pool has its own roof and therefore there need to be no worries about the weather.

Girls will get the chance to compete in the streetstyle and vertical ramp; 1.500 dollars will be divided between the first three competitors.

The event is always such great fun. It is a great chance for skaters to meet like minded people and to share their passion. It is also a good opportunity to advertise a new product, like a new skate brand, bingo on TV or a type of food. Skaters are pretty open minded people and love trying something new.

Such as each year, skaters satisfaction is our main priority, because if they are happy, the spectators will most definitely be happy as well. We always build a brand new streetstyle course for the world skate cup according to the lastest trends so the skaters are inspired to special efforts, which set forward the limits of skateboarding.

We always try to guarantee the worlds best riders for the Mystic Sk8 Cup each year. This year will be no different. Almost 200 professionals from more than 25 countries in the world. American, Australian, Brazilian and European top riders will compete at the Mystic Sk8 Cup 2007.

Mystic Sk8 Cup takes place in Mystic skatepark on the Štvanice island and it is an open air event with roofing system above streetstyle and bowl.

Because MCS is an open contest, we are making pre-qualification for European riders on Friday from 4PM. Only the best ones advance to the Saturdays qualification runs. The number of riders who will go to qualification will be set on Friday.

Czech Republic will be represented by 20 best riders, who have successfully qualified into the competition through the Czech Skateboarding Serie 2007. For most of them it will be a grand experience to ride with the world´s best skaters.

The contest is rank by the World Cup Skateboarding(WSC) and the points gained in the contest will be counted into the overall WSC rankings.

As usual, there will be a rich accompanying program on the MCS such as live concerts, DJs, Subkultura art exhibition, 100m graffiti wall, video projections of sk8 movies and a premiere of Volcom´s new skate movie from Australia called Let´s Live and also various workshops - skate design for example. As of today, we can mention following artists: punk bands from USA Bad Shit, Nihilist, The Egg (UK), local Sunshine, PSH, Matěj Ruppert and guests, Chilakillerz (mex), DJ Mucho, DJ Robot, Liquid A, prague´s urban hip hop DJs at T-music zone and more.
