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!

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.

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.

you know, theres those guys that never do what you expect them to be.

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!)

christian thomann, wallie.
i lied to you in my last big post. the guy from the woods was no weird guy living in the woods, he is a weird guy living in a apartment with his wonderful wife. also, he is OLD AS FUCK. so to celebrate his birthday, i chose to unleash some previously unreleased pictures of him here. don´t look so scared man, its all good.
I don´t know why this has never been used. fs smith El Toro. he went there on his bike, saw the spot, smoked a cigarette and said “i gotta do this first try, i have an online poker tournament in 5 minutes and dont have time for this childish shit.”
David Gonzales did a 5050 here. Herwig went there, during a online-poker-tournament break and fs smith grinded it. afterwards he smoked a cigarette, got wasted and harassed an old lady in a bus with the story of how he forged his wedding ring himself.
bs Tailslide the Hoover Dam. Herwig went there for an online-poker-tournament (he isnt very good with computers and doesn´t quite understand the principle of online tournaments..). Afterwards he smoked a cigarette and peed in the water, giggling and yelling “take this, obama!”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HERWIG.
