Sergej Vutuc x Love Skateboards x Project 45

“After a few collaborations with a canadian company I decided to hit the road in Canada and explore their local scene and make more tight bond between Love Skateboards and my work. So we made a one week tour in canada showing my books, zines, and super8 videos, making performances and showing our latest collaboration… at the moment is the Montreal stop. And right in time to exchange and support local activists and Project 45. So we decide to do today a popup show event in Project45 and share with project win….” – Sergej Vutuc

So whatever, god had mercy for some poor little 4×4 rolling board pilots, thank you for that wonderful sunny day. You did get a fair reward as all the spectators got more than a decent action jackson afternoon, with high speed feebles and head high airs.

Yeah, we did miss the ladies contest here again… fucking idiots we are… but we have just been always at the wrong spot for the right tricks, and you do not want to show a rock to fakie,..no? Because they are much better with blunts and liens to tail… respect and sorry, next time.

So here’s sunny boys in various poses, with danger in the mind and adrenaline in their veins (who knows what else)…

Thank you Lohse crew for that afternoon.”

Rule Fest Mondaka diy – Galicia, Spain

On Saturday June 11th, the second edition of Rule Fest in the d.i.y. of Mondaka, in Mondariz (Spain). After a few years the place is more amazing than ever! Wooden transitions, some pool coping, close to the river, rooms, kitchen, roof… and the best atmosphere with the old and new friends all over Galicia.

After the contest many bands played in the local keeping the good vibes alive till the early morning of the next day. A project made with passion that is stronger than ever. Keep on building! Keep on skating!!! Keep on having fun!!!

Rat Bowl contest at North Brigade – Cologne, Germany

Despite increased warnings for heavy rain and storm no one canceled the Volcom Rat Bowl Contest at North Brigade. We are well used to rainy moments here in the Rheinland. Et Kuett wie et kuett (kölsch slang for “What will be, will be”) und et haett no immer jut jegange (“it’s still gone well, or so good so far..). We were granted some heavy skating by a bunch of crazy dudes. Yeah, one always gets more wild than the others, but as a natural law, no one gets crazy if not pushed. And they pushed each other quite well after a rain break right until the rain started again with Jaime Mateu landing his deep end to steep bank backside 360 transfer. Well deserved first place after skating non stop all day for the small island (Mallorca) boy Mr. Mateu, even if it was a close call with the british boy Alex Hallford. Thanks to the North, the guys drying the bowl and Volcom for making it happening.
