Wasted Box is the newest and the best underground Skateshop in Cologne, Germany. With a full stock of skateboards, skateboarding paraphenalia and clothing from companies like Consolidated, Death, Platipus, Big Mess Skateboards, H-Street, Old Man Army and European brands like Minus, Yama, Heroin, Impakt, Telum, Maertyrer and more… and skate DVDs, hardware, wheels, and soon to be carrying underground skate magazines like Lowcard and Confusion…. Wasted Box is the shop to go to in Cologne, or from anywhere within a few hundred kilometers.
In their own words from the Opening Flyer, Wasted Box has “more to explore than the sweet pink sugar icing of Skateboarding you see today at most skate shops or magazines… It has so many different views of passion, pain, and art, and this event shows a unique part of it.”
Last Sunday they opened their doors with an all day art/photo show from Brusk Collective (Belgium), Sergej Vutuc (Heilbronn, Germany), and Herr Schulze (Cologne), with a freshly constructed skateable installation by Koet Construction (Cologne) that was the focus of the day and into the nights entertainment. Free beers and pot stickers were on hand throughout the evening as psychotic skateboarding raged on in the corner of the dirty, dingy cellar below the Wasted Box…. so check out the video and the photos…and next time you are in or near Köln, go check out the shop. Roonstraße 37, 50674, Köln – firstname.lastname@example.org – 0221 2054462. This is the beginning of a very good thing, that the underground skateboard world needs, especially here in Europe.
