Alis floating miniramp – Copenhagen, Denmark

Alis have every year been a part of Distortion – first in Wonderland and then later at the street parties around the city. This year it moved to the habour side to be able to accommodate the big crowd, so they asked if we wanted to join in with some fun and off course we did. My original plan was, and still is, to build a bowl in concrete that floats, but because of the cost of such a project and since the time came quickly, we did the mini ramp on a raft, borrowed it from J. Mag in Malmö and got it setup on the raft… Lots of struggle, but great fun. The biggest crowd pleaser was when boards ended in the water and our pearl diver came to the surface with the boards covered in seaweed.”
