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.
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
sometimes you just gotta jump on your bike and join a random session somewhere. especially if you get the chance to smell the sweat of handsome bastards like Julian. Continue reading “dorking around.”
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:
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!
i am jumping ahead here. if you want to know what happened the last 24h, please check this out: http://www.weartested.com/supra-avex-weartest-in-barcelona/
if not, let me show you the aftermath of the Supra Footwear party:
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.
as you might have guessed because of my pulitzer-award-winning title, this is gonna be a series of posts about barcelona.
mostly featuring people on skateboards.

shot this amazing show yesterday, check out my gallery at Noisey!
more shots will follow on here soon.
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.
