due to the tragic event 2 weeks ago, goskateboarding day in Graz was moved to this sunday.
quick recap: it was damn hot, and fun. no photos here, sorry. just remember a group of guys skating together, sweaty, dirty, happy, surrounded by pissed off drug dealers, bums, and flies. also, Phil Gosch won the Game of Skate. consistency, good looks, women, money, he has it all.
this motivated some guys so much that we went street skating afterwards. Lukas Oswald had some open business with the Resowi-ledge that had to be settled. watch him fly here:

this saturday the friendly and good looking guys from Wiki Graz and Freedom Skateshop Graz joined forces to host a Miniramp contest. this led to great skating and good times. between judging and looking great i also managed to get a few shots. enjoy.

so, this is in fact a rather long post actually. but about the new miniramp at the skatehall. see what i did there? i made a joke with mini, but it wasn´t what you thought it would be. i am smart like a fox.
anyway, the pictures are kinda random, so please take everything about it seriously and hate me if you dont like that. also, i didnt care about flashes being in the pics, so suck it again. and its all fisheye with boring angles, so suck it even more.
Luki Kro, handplant grab transfer on the spine thingy, no idea how to call it. goddamn kids and their weird tricks.

skateboarding can be stressful sometimes. there is a lot of “hit and run” involved, and sometimes the “run”-part comes before the actual “hit”-part is involved. (forget about the “and” part in this scenario…) but at least i can squeeze some kind of story out of it.
same thing happend last time we went to skate this rail. i was trying to try new flash stuff, foolishly thinking “yeah, i have time to experiment with moving the flashes, no need to hurry.”
here i try to get my angle worked out, timmy respectfully didn´t jump onto the rail this time. i wasn´t even close to ready.
in another installment of “hey let´s have a closer look at something in the picture”, how goddamn cool does Wally look like? Continue reading “all rail timmy.”
so, i have been playing around with exposure stuff lately. and to do that, i called a few companies and begged them “please, send me someone that can skate, i am sick of all those shop-sponsored kiddies. i need thrasher covers.”
and my tears and cries of despair worked. Philipp Josephu showed up!
but first, heres some kid that tries grabbing a board and ollieing and stuff. some call it creative, i call it “nyjah would have done it down a 20 stair.”.

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.

you know, sometimes when you are about to meet someone that you were looking up to as a child, you can´t help but wish “my god, i hope he is no asshole…”
well, on saturday i had the chance to meet more than one of my idols, but the guy that stood out the most was the incredible Mr Chad Muska. Smiling 24/7, high fiving and hugging everyone in sight, spreading the best of vibes possible, it was simply amazing.
Thank you for the inspiration, i still smile when i think back to that. Now go buy something with his name on it.
