Eight Decks and one bench!

Happen to end up at a wicket Skate Jam in Ulm today. Never knew they had such a cool park there! The jam was organised by the local skate shop 58 and apart from a snake run session they organised a pool jam as well as a highest Olli contest. The dude on the picture managed to stand the bench plus eight decks after this jump! 


Good bye nr. 37

The end of an era has to be celebrated in style! We had a great party with fantastic people saying good bye to the beloved home of nr. 37. Thanks to everyone who came!

X-Alps 2009 from Salzburg to Monaco has started

I am covering the X-Alps for the next two days. We are currently on top of Salzburg's house mountain, and we just watched 30 top fit endurance athletes who started the Red Bull X-Alps take off. They will be hiking and flaying 818 km along the postcard like mountain range from Salzburg to Monaco. Stopping at impressive mountain tops such as the Watzman, Grossglockner, Matterhorn, Marmolada and Mont Blanc. 

The cool thing about the event is that possible to follow the athletes via live tracking on google map! All the guys are caring GPS device that send all the details via bluetooth to a mobile phone and that phone transfers the information every two minutes. 



Yeah! The stickers I got made are where finally in the post today. Cant wait to bomb town ;-)
By the way, its kind of obvious but they where made for the German Action Sports Awards. Check out the website here

BMX Worlds 2009 In Cologne (Köln)

I just got back from the BMX Worlds in Cologne, Germany. Jamie Bestwick, Mark Webb, Daniel Dhers, Anthony Napolitan, Ben Wallace, Ryan Nyquist…the BMX world elite was there! Unfortunately the rain hit the programme hard and some of the comps could not be held but it was still a spectacular event.
Dirt, Vert, Miniramp, Park and Flatland competition where held with I think over 300 register riders and I have seen a lot of sick stuff. Highlights where the pro spine miniramp contest where 14 year old Bred Nananawitcz managed to gain himself the silver medal before Mark Webb! The dirt jump comp was amazing too, obviously! Anthony Napolitan went super huge and technical and is the new world champion. Also seeing the original Haro Freestyle Team (Ron Wilkerson, Bryan Blytheer, Dave Nourie and Mike Domingues) perform there old school stunts was pretty moving. More info to the event here.


Bread and Butter Berlin

Spend the last few day at the Bread and Butter urban street fashion fair in Berlin. The Free Style Magazine was the coolest thing I have seen during the fair. A group of creative people form the UK and Berlin published a tasty looking magazine. It is round and comes with a Freebee is beautifully designed and has got great articles. On top of their van was a DJ playing funky dunes in the sunny afternoon sky.
