Teutônia, Brazil - When anyone familiar with the DH Skateboard listen of Teutônia it´s all about an unique and completely different experience. The ones whom make the dream of coming to Teutônjia for the first time always say it was different from the videos and much more scaried that they expected.
It´s like the whole combination of the jungle, its tropical rain storms, the melting heat, the lizards, the spiders, the insects, the people and the hill, turns into an explosion of crazyness and high concentrated adrenaline carried by strong emotions. The 10th Anniversary of Teutônia was magic, it´s difficult to describe with words.

Teutônia, Brazil - When the riders and organizers arrived at Teutônia hill in Linha da Harmonia, Teutônia/Brazil this morning they faced the strongest wind storm ever seen before in the hill. Wind blew tail at the top of the hill, side at the big turn and head at the steepest loops turning the track into one of the most scaring experiences one could taste at the Downhill Skateboard so far.
Teutonia, Brazil - With more then 5000 spectators last year lining the course they were amazed while watching racers compete on the worlds fastest track. 2013 marks the second time the IGSA World Championships are being held in South America.
