Protest Rock A Rail 2011

October the 28th, The Blanko Foundation realized the Protest Rock A Rail Fuelled by Monster Energy, a rail contest between one of the best rail riders from Europe.

The Rock A Rail contest was the biggest railcontest that has ever been in the Netherlands. Three years ago the idea started to throw a contest in the city center of The Hague.

After years of struggling to get sponsors and permissions, the Blanko foundation finally got everything together and made it happen. For one day the “Grote Markt” was the battlefield of street snowboarding. Riders from all over Europe landed hundreds of tricks, that everybody in the crowd destroyed his/her vocal cords.  Approximately 2500 spectators were present at this unique event.

Fundamental ingredients for the success of this contest were the comment skills of MC’s Henry Jackson from the UK, and Seb van den Berg From the Hague, together with DJ Commander Redbeard,  these guys did a excellent job and put on a great show.

The “Supermarkt” took care of an awesome afterparty with DJ Boehmer from The Hague and Mike Rock from Marseille.
