So he invited all the heavy hitters from the past to come together for a session in Palm Springs.

IGS Hamburg night session

The IGS skatepark in Hamburg is one of a very few parks in Germany with lights and with the days getting shorter quickly that is a very nice feature. After a session at the Fruchtallee bowl Wolfganster and I headed over to the IGS for second session and we ran into two legends from Hamburg Jan Waage and Robert Wolff, hadn´t seen those guys for like 20 years!
Everybody was stoked and we had a great session and a few brews after.

Getxo Bowl-A-Rama 2014 pt.-1

Getxo Bowl-A-Rama 2014

So after a little adventure with Air France that included a longer than planned stop at the world famous Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. It´s maybe not as bad as it may look but it´s pretty bad and if you can, just do yourself a favor and avoid it.

Arriving in Bilbao we were greeted with hot and sunny weather – perfect! Got the rental, checked in the bed and breakfast and made it to the La Kantera skatepark by late afternoon.
Some US pool shredders like Raven Tershy, Grant Taylor, Peter Hewitt, Raney were already at the park sessioning with Alain Goikoetxea, Danny Leon and some local rippers.
So after Mondays mellow session more and more skaters showed up on Tuesday and the sessions started to heat up and it´s gonna get better each day till the finals on Saturday.

Make sure to not miss this one! If you can´t make it to the La Kanterea skatepark do not miss the live stream on Saturday.

– Willis Kimlbel was flying over the ramp with boned out bs airs and tall andrecht handplants.
– Tyler Edtmayer showed some high airs.
– Mark Scott caused some chaos.
– Alex Sorgente smashed the coping with his body jars.
– Björn Lillesoe had nice bonelesses.
– Neal Hendrix stalled inverts to fakie and blasted some high airs.
– Sean Goff did smith grinds, sweepers and laybackairs.
– John Magnusson dropped in a few times and just did perfect runs with a ton of tircks.

Rollbrett e.V. Premier- a lost art of video premier gatherings revisited

Rollbrett e.V. Premier- a lost art of video premier gatherings revisited

Karlsruhe, Germany

I can’t even remember the last time I went to a skate-video premier: maybe at the Blue Bird Theater, or Andenken art gallery in Denver 2006? Not sure. Nonetheless, I watch more and more clips and less and less ‘videos’ as I de-evolve from being a present part of the skateboard social scene to a dusty digital lurker.
So, it was really nice to physically go to a premier, skateboard, drink beers, and watch the new short video Fred Simmons shot over the winter in the excellent non-profit indoor skate park ran by the local skate club Rollbrett e.V. I often bore of skatepark footy, but Fred invigorated the otherwise sterile park environment into a colorful backdrop for great tricks. The video was cleverly edited and skaters included Fred himself (I say, video MVP), Switch Steffen, Gert Mema, Patrick Federlechner, me, Alex Mizurov, Johannes Haist, Nico Manz, Dennis, Carlo, Little Reece, Steffen Capitano, and Victor Schmidt to name a few. Thanks to Fred and the Rollbrett e.V. for hosting a premier. We should all seriously do this more often. -LS

BANDSALAT featuring Randy Holden

2014-05-19_frame_Bandsalat-8986-700px

Hello Dear readership. This is the second installment of “Bandsalat”, courtesy of Bailgun. And today we’re bringing you some serious “Stoner Rock”! Randy Holden! It really doesn’t get much heavier than this as far as guitar gnarlers go. One of the first bands he was in was “The Fender IV” who did this burly rendition of
“Mar Gaya”, a ripping surf guitar instrumental. He went on to play in a bunch of other bands after that, but it wasn’t until he joined Blue Cheer, maybe the first Heavy Metal band, that he really started to stretch his stoner wings. In 1969 he formed a band with one other guy and called it “Population 2” as it was just the two of them. The record is nearly impossible to to find even on CD, but if you’re into Stoner Rock or heavy duty guitars then you might want to give it a shot. Until next time, this is Bandsalat saying “Get stoned”!
