Turtle Video Premiere

the amazing Turtle Crew put out their very first full length this friday! the premiere at Schikaneder cinema in vienna was packed with beautiful people, and i managed to make them all look shitty!

the video is so damn good, i have to insist that you get yourself a copy.
at freedom skateshop vienna or Graz for example.

outstanding work Luki! so stoked on it.

serious session.

lots of people think that shooting skate-photos is simply going out and pressing a button. but no, theres more. forcing people to do stuff they dont want to, laying in the dirt and giant dogs trying to eat your face. this day had it all.

but first things first: preparation of the spot. Johannes unscrews the rail while Lukas checks the fabric of his shirt. #teamwork

go skateboarding day.

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:

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!

barce-two-na.

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.

RVIVR / Ants! @ MusicHouse Graz, 21.10.2014

yesterday was a good day. the amazing Ants! opened for the even more amazing RVIVR, one of the top 3 bands on this planet right now. listen to them here, or keep on blowing it. the show was amazing, as expected, the MusicHouse was packed, as expected. But hey, for once, i would like to add a little bit of criticism here: i am somewhat confused as to the reaction of people to crowdsurfing and dancing. yes, i do not like that too, especially since half of the time i am around it with a months salary of camera equipment, but goddamn, if you want everybody standing around and mindlessly staring into the void just go to a Helene Fischer concert. its amazing that there are people who preach tolerance and acceptance yet throw fuck you fingers and start being aggressive if somebody doesnt exactly behave the way they want it to. this of course also goes out to the people that somehow think that everybody would want their sweaty ass in their face. dance, have fun, but if you are a 2m guy try not to fall on that girl half your size. congrats to RVIVR for being mediators in this scenario.

now, enjoy the pictures, listen to the bands, buy their stuff. they deserve it.

seeking summer.

this is one of my favourite pictures from this summer, even though you kinda wouldnt expect it to be shot in warm weather. this is mostly due to the fact that it was shot in Oulu, Finland, on its most popular beach. well, you can kinda see how popular it was this particular day haha.. the mood there was stunning though, blue skies, a incredibly sandy beach and a nice cafe. this picture just represents the perfect reason to travel: make new experiences that you havent had before, learn from them and then go on searching for that next experience. and never stop.
