have you skated a wheelchair before? i had a go today with lisa schmidt from sit n skate,  proof picture here! lisa is awesome! she teaches and spreads an attitude of freedom in kids that appear trapped in their chairs by showing them fresh moves.  today i was part of gorilla's biggest inclusion workshop in a school for kids with physical disability and/or emotional and behavioral difficulties. while you are at it, you should also check out the web home of matias berger, his bright spirit is a grand pleasure and inspiration to have around.


Movement for prisoners!

"out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. i'll meet you there." - rumi

jails are not the places i usually hang out, however, i had the honor to give a longboard workshop to the inmates from a german young offender institution near leipzig. thank you for letting us in! sharing a day with the young men inside made me appreciate my freedom even more and reminded me once more how thin the line between justice and injustice is. at the end i was even asked for my signature ;) hell yeah! to: peace, skateboarding and freedom!
