Bergfest 2015 was a massive hit……. Bowls, Beers, Bros, skateboarding, sun, girls, bbq, slams, stalefishes, never been dones, almost makes on the rail, bands, more beers, after party, and three days to recover. Thanks to Koloss, Pavel Skateboards, Jimmy’z, Concrete Wave, and Hoax mfg for helping make this skate party a smashing good time. If you really want to know what it’s like at the Bergfest, you have to come experience it yourself. See you next year!

I should have taken more photos from this angle, instead of with the papparazzi lurkers at the hotspot with the fisheye. Robin Schulze, frontside smith grind.
Donald of Pavel Skateboards was running the silk screen press half the day, pumping out custom Bergfest tees. That one’s mine.

Robian Fifield tore up the bowls and the gnarly Berg rail and the Jäger bottle.

Ariana going backside.
Robian Fifield from Netherlands, Jaime Mateu from Spain, Bruce the Ox from Ireland, and Timo Krone from Germany. No losers here, well, maybe Timo, he smashed his face in the deepend and went to the hospital, and maybe Robian also, he almost pulled a crooked grind down the gnarly Berg rail, but ate shit. But the other two dudes, Jaime and Bruce, total winners this day!
It’s a board, it’s a butt, it’s KEVIN WENZKE flying head high out of the deepend.
Jaime Mateu. Stale fish in the deepend of the Monster Bowl. Not for the slight at heart. Photo: J. Hay
