Gnarathon 2024

Welcome to the second edition of the Gnarathon Vienna! A fun, laid back and inclusive event created by skaters, for skaters, with an aim at uniting the Vienna skate scene and connecting it with the international skateboard community. Following last year’s success and thanks to Vans’ support, the Gnarathon is extended to 3 days, with a full program of exhibitions, discussions, videos, concerts… and gnarly skate sessions!

Kick Off

On Thursday, May 30th we kick off the Gnarathon 2024 with a Party @Brilliantengrund

The day starts with a street skate session exclusively for FLINTA* (Female, Lesbian, Inter-, Nonbinary, Trans and Agender) where skaters can network and then take part in the event and contest on the following two days in a strengthened Community.

At 18:00 we open the doors at Hotel Am Brillantengrund for everyone! There will be an exhibition showing works by female and queer, national and international artists who are actively involved in the skate scene.

Followed by a panel discussion focusing on gender equality and the accessibility of skate events for FLINTA* people) at 19:00 Raisa Abal (Dolores),Selin Ardak (Girlsrule),  Miljana Miljewic (Consent is Rad), Lucia Soltmann Cortez (Skatesencia Berlin)

We’re back at Karlsplatz

This time our friend and artist Flo Berger designed a very unusual skate course. Is it a race, a circus, or a freak show? Hard to tell… No one can predict what will happen. The only guarantee: tons of fun!

In the evening the skate nerds will have the opportunity to put their knowledge to the test with the Ashes Skate Quiz, followed by more video screenings and DJ sets.

16:00 – 17:00 warm up

1. Schwarzenbergplatz

Saturday is the big day! Starting with a downtown street session curated by Carhartt WIP at Schwarzenbergplatz. Ledge technicians will be in the spotlight at this classic Vienna spot. Can you hold a back tail for 10 meters? We got the wax…

12:00 – 12:30 warm up
12:30 – 13:00 Flinta
13:00 – 14:00 Open

2. Back to the Danube

Summer in Vienna means chilling at the Danube, so we’re gonna go to the Danube… but we’re not gonna chill! Vans’ double obstacle extravaganza built by Spoff Parks promises to be spectacular. We’re talking 18m long downhill rail plus a bank to wall so big it’s gonna make Trump jealous!

15:00 – 16:00 warm up
16:00 – 17:00 Flinta
17:00 – 19:00 Open

3. Ring of Fire

To properly finish it off Monster is inviting us all to the legendary Arena with a surprise obstacle as hot as Satan’s undies and a musical program you will not soon forget.
