Sihlside Spot. D.I.Y: Zürich, Switzerland

A year ago, we started with a small concrete quarter pipe. We didn’t know how long it would stay there, so we were really happy with our little spot. After a while, we built up a wobble and a china bank and still, no one teared it down. So we went big and built a corner, complete with Pudi’s Pool Coping. And with every new project, we improved, and learned a lot about building a spot. None of us had ever done anything like this before. Finally, this spring, we continued with a hip. And, thinking about the beginning, where we came in the night to built the first quarter… it was unbelievable that we can celebrate the first birthday of Sihlside.
But the end is near, this fall it will be over. Nicolas Buechi
