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.
This is not brand new but still worth checking out because Arne Fiehl former editor in chief of
Boardstein Magazine and photographer Jonn Rübke did a really good job telling the story
of the I-Punkt Skateland in Hamburg from it´s beginings in 1990 till 2000.
There´s many funny and interessting stories from Tim Payne who built the bowl to the Death Box/Flip team causing some havoc…
Photographer Jonn Rübke captured everything from day one and dove deep into the archives to
show the most memorable images. Order now before it´s sold out
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.
