September Wheels Baltics Tour

The September Wheels summer tour has become a synonym for a great time with friends. This is why no less than 14 people met up in Helsinki last August to skate, eat, drink, sleep in tents and cross the Baltic sea. Somehow we managed to be in Finland for the hottest and sunniest week they had all summer, so we spent our days skating, swimming and sweating.

September Wheels Baltics Tour

“The September Wheels summer tour has become a synonym for a great time with friends. This is why no less than 14 people met up in Helsinki last August to skate, eat, drink, sleep in tents and cross the Baltic sea. Somehow we managed to be in Finland for the hottest and sunniest week they had all summer, so we spent our days skating, swimming and sweating. I’m not going to take you through the week, day by day, but I recall a funny session in the rain that ended with the best group photo ever taken and a skatepark covered in beer, a perfect day down at the harbor and hours of pushing whilst unsuccessfully looking for a DIY park in the suburbs. We ended up having an intense session at a rough, random wallie spot in the middle of nowhere. What else? So Theis started off the trip with an insane drop-in at the airport, Nicolas made a new best friend, someone you meet at a club can apparently make you drive two hours to the north the next day, someone hardly ever slept in his own tent and can someone please go get more beers. Our days in Helsinki went by way too fast and before we knew it we were on a ferry to Tallinn. The day we arrived happened to be the day the Tallinn locals had a party at their DIY spot we hadn’t even heard about. There was a race through the park and our very own Etienne won the box of Estonian micro brews. We truly had a great time at this awesome spot, thanks! The locals took us with them to show us their city and some of us barely survived the Tallinn nightlife. Since we spent more time in Helsinki than we had planned, we had only half a day left to enjoy Riga, which is a shame because we passed by a couple of really amazing spots there. We got to skate so many insane spots in one week, met so many nice people and had such a good time, I wish we hadn’t been in such a rush to hop from city to city because every one of the three is worth at least a month’s visit.”  Marco Hofer

Premià de Dalt bowl – Barcelona – the final session

Since the first day the bowl was built, the locals have been having a bunch of problems with the neighbors and cops…

The consequences of that were:

  • No lights
  • Tickets for drinking or playing music
  • Problems for making pool partys, etc…
  • The worst was the maintainence crew from the city never goes there to fix the holes, paint or do anything to help the park.

The reason for all this is because the bowl was in a rich neighborhood on the top of the hills of Premiá de Mar which they call “Premia de Dalt” which in Catalán means the “hills of Premia

Premia de mar

Premia de Dalt

They want to fuck over the park because they don’t like around dirty losers whith boards….and prefer to make a shit soccer camp or a fucking paddle shit…

A big crew of locals been fighting since the first day with them.. and fixing the holds and painting from her selft and putting money for that from their pockets and making pool partys whith beers… barbeques for take money for the park…

Old school possee.

Old school (and future school) possee.

Around a year ago they had  sad news… The city told them they are going to build a park 500 meters from the old one. That park will be inside a bmx park and it’s going to be private, with all the shit things like:

  • Pads
  • Helmet
  • Ticket to get in
  • And skate inbetween bmx… scooters, etc….

Then they started another fight with the city… probably the last one… and finally that was that. The rich neighborhood kids won and the park was destroyed a couple weeks ago.

That’s it, this is the article from the last skate session there, the last barbeque, and the last time we got wasted together. They will build the new one, and the old one – it’s in our memory. Thanks a lot to all the locals and everybody who makes something and has been working to take care of the bowl – it was really great times there… R.I.P. Premia de Dalt bowl.
