shortly after the first spot, it started to rain. so we went and got some wonderful Estrella and wandered the streets of Badalona, looking for spots. and food. we did find spots, but goddamn it, spanish people dont like to work on rainy days. after what felt like walking all the way to great britain on foot, we decided to just buy noodles at a supermarket and cook them at the hostel.
where we decided to order pizza.
have you tried ordering pizza without speaking Catalan? its fun. you yell some english words at your phone, some old guy yells something in catalan, and after 30 minutes of wondering if our order actually came through the pizza arrived. yay.

recently, the rural city of Graz had royal visitors. one royal visitor, to be precise. Jan Federer, from Vienna. yes, the famous city, filled with fiaker, schnitzel and buttloads of culture. we gave our best and showed him around, trying to refresh his memories of years he lost here. because he lives in Vienna now. a better life. a more urban life.
first spot was this great curb in a driveway. Sam was the first to 5050 it.

here´s the conclusion to the last post. Simon has crazy pop, and crazy style. even his goddamn shadow is stylish. damn. damn damn damn.

soo, its indoor season again. and as much as i hate this skatehall, its better than skating a shitty curb in a windy parking garage. on the other hand, its the perfect chance to play around with my flash and try stuff.
also, its the perfect time to take ridiculous pictures. first off, i am pretty sure that you could make some kind of meme out of Andis face in this one. i used my photoshop skills to enhance it. just.for.you!

this summer, Gabriel came up to me and told me that he wanted to die. so i brought him to the biggest kink-rail i knew around here, in the middle of racist drug addicts, homeless immigrants and crazy children and told him to grind it. so there we are.
Philipp tried to film me, so i hid in my hole. i feel safe in my hole.

this summer, the wonderful town of Graz got blessed with a visit from the Supra team with the likes of Jim Greco, Chad Muska, Terry Kennedy, Neen Williams, Tom Penny and others, including a demo and in-shop signing. most of the guys were pretty tired from their tour schedule, but Terry Kennedy was too hyped to skate the biggest rail that we could offer him: the infamous Thalia 13. of course, once word got out at the signing, a giant crew of people wanted to witness this. (by the way, if you haven´t done that already, please check out my new site on FB: https://www.facebook.com/layingbreadcrumbs , thanks!)

had a nice night-session recently. i took photos. i will show them to you now. ready?
simons first try. it was dark, we had no light (dont be fooled by the flashes) and it basically seemed like jumping into a dark abyss.
at least that was what those guys used as explanations for their inability to land tricks. but we know better, right?

sorry for the lack of updates, kinda working on some stuff here. in the meantime, enjoy this out-of-focus shot of a double line that Andi and Timmy did. also, i photoshopped cats in there. because cat you, thats why.
decided to put 2 super secret pictures online. thrasher already has its cover for november, apparently.
here is what the pros do when a rail doesnt slide: use mother nature and all its wonderful creations. behold the banana waxxx!
aaand thats it. luki is outta here. powerslide to freedom.
sometimes it is really hard to decide between shooting a sequence, shooting a still or just staying at home and playing video games.
well, i guess here i should have done all of the above. Luki Krobath did a fs lipslide, but he popped from the upper table, across this channel-gap-thingy. which is quite a lot tougher than you would expect from the picture at first.
i only shot a single shot though, so i have to improvise here. if you would kindly direct your eyes to the second image please, there the tour will continue.
see, i found the perfect solution. magazines, take notes here! also, there is joel in the background. hello joel!
