those cherry days…

having a knee problem sucks. having a knee problem when the first warm and sunny days of spring are coming up pretty much compares to being kidnapped and forced to sleep with your mom while your dad is watching. think about that for a while, then go on reading this blog update.

done? done thinking about your mom? okay.

talking about your mom, here is herwig. herwig is old and grumpy, but beautiful on the inside (see, like mommy.) here he is sliding a 100km/h bs lipslide. yes!

finding new friends on the street.

recently, the rural city of Graz had royal visitors. one royal visitor, to be precise.

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.

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.
