Lohse party 2015 – Cologne, Germany

A sunny, warm and cloudy day in Cologne celebrating 15 years of the Lohse Ramp with some ripping skateboarding from german and dutch skaters. The contest ended with 14 year old (younger than the ramp) Lenni Janssen taking the win, Tim Rebensdorf with 2nd place, Nick Bax with 3rd, and Tim Bijsterveld with best trick, with the 270 boneless in (and bonus bomb drop to shut down the ramp for the day). Insert Coin started playing for the packed Lohse crowd and then Köln local hardcore favorites TSH – The Schöne Hubätz took the stage as the pit started to heat up and the rain sprinkled down, turning into a full on monsoon before the end of the third song, with some people holding up and hiding under the tarp to cover the band equipment, or lurking under the beer tent, and others overflowing into the darkness under the bridge where two new rivers flowed from up the hill through the trough of the bridge and everyone was completely soaking wet and soggily scattered into the night to find shelter from the rain.
