After some rain earlier that day it dried up and sun came out
for another great Bergfest session this year.
Here´s Krause smith grinding into the sunset at the end of the day.

Hamburg has some rad concrete spots and is really worth a visit and if you´re lucky you might even session with Lester Kasai.
Spots to go: Rote Flora Bowl, Fruchtallee Bowl and the brand new IGS Snakerun and if you take a short drive north there´s the Neumünster Pool and a gnarly 3/4 Pipe from the 70´s.

On the way to the new IGSPark we made a quick stop at the legendary Wilhemsburg banks. Axel with a feeble.
Axel with a classic smith grind at the ISG Snakerun. This is a rad snakerun with lots of poolcoping and fun lines.
The only drawback might be the kinda high admission for the IGS. But all the other spots are free to skate.
The new wallpaper features a nice still life of the concrete curves of the Mechelen skatepark, belgium.
