RCS DIY – Stockholm, Sweden

The most insane “backyard pool” Stockholm has ever seen: a true beast with tons of vert and steep corners but yet an ever so fresh pleaser to the eyes; huge deathboxes, large cyan tiles, yellow cooping blocks and a baby smooth surface, all poured in one go. With all the extra details such as the drain in the deep end, pool light, love seat and even water valve caps on the walls it’s as close to the real deal as it gets.

Brotherhood Plaza – Skarpnäck, Sweden

Brotherhood Plaza is one of the first skate plazas in Sweden with more than 1600 square meters to skate. With grass gaps, curbs, banks, hips and even a bowl this D.I.Y park is surely worth a visit. With a colorful mix of obstacles the founder, David Krug, in collaboration with Stockholm City and the local community, made sure that there will always be new lines to be discovered at the plaza. With more of an urban vibe going on this plaza is frequently visited and cherished by most skaters in the Stockholm county and also a must tour-stop for skaters passing by in the area code.
