Pumpa Party 2013 – Postojna, Slovenia

The Boldrider‘s guys organized two days of party and skate sessions with sixteen bands playing, because they were supposed to destroy all the concrete and the vert ramp at the gas station in Postojna.

I was so sad about that, but so hyped at the same time to meet up with all the guys. Whoever was there knows the situation – the atmosphere was so rad…

We skated for two days and partied inside when it started to rain in the night.
Someone crashed into the flue for the fireplace, and it started to rain ashes inside.
Some of the bands played in this small room, where there was Sergej’s exposition.
People started to mosh and flying over the heads, jumping from windows. Craziest time ever.
The skate sesh was really intense.

Albert Nyberg, Axel Cruysberghs, Oli Buergin, Ferit Batir with the R.O.W guys totally killed the spot. I want to thanks all the people who was there for this week end, it was really fun. Special thanks to the locals who organized the fest, and prepared Nutella with bread on Sunday morning. sweeeet.
Oh, the good news is that the spot is gonna stay for another year, at least. Long live Pumpa.
