after what seems like eons, heres a small update.
lotsa stuff going on behind the scenes. best check (and like!) my facebook page or just stay alert.
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.
Joel Wright, pivot to fakie including a well lit package.
every now and then it happens that incredibly good bands get sucked into the hole known as “Music-House Graz“. and when that happens, its best to show up there.
the latest victims were the superheroes of The Fleshtones (they have their own wikipedia entry, by the way.)
if you knew them before, you knew what was coming up. if you didnt, you fell in love with them. this is how rocknroll stars should grow old – with power, passion and sheer neverending love for music.
the supporting band, Lory Lee and the Flashback Boys, were amazing as well, but i failed to take pictures. yep, i am that good.
anyway, no more boring words, heres the pictures. the show was incredible, if you have the chance to see them, SEE THEM.
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.
to wrap up my 3 part series, heres the “better” (as in “those suck the least, you sucking sucker.”) pictures. prepare to see no updates for 3 weeks again, then 3 updates in a row, then repeat. i suck at blogging.
Philipp Gosch, fancy tre-flip. including Grizzly-Griptape advertisement (yes, Torey, you can send me money if you want!)
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.”.
for some reason this picture really struck me, dont know if its all the cut-off features in there, the half-opened door, or something else, it just leaves me wondering whats going on behind the wall and outside these walls in general. or maybe i am simply an idiot.
so now here it is for your viewing pleasure.
there is a time for every young man to get his 2nd flash. and then try and fail while learning to use it. luckily i have guys like philipp gosch that land their tricks 50 times in a row until the crappy photographer has everything right.
cant wait to go into the streets.
