This is the new skate spot in Köln, on the ‘other’ side of the Rhein, underneath the Zoobrücke.
It is not DIY. Otherwise, it would be much better. But I won’t waste this space complaining about how rad it would have been if there was some kind of a bowl, instead of these little concrete obstacles strewn here and there.
This small session took place July 5th, at a birthday party for Ari, one of the few girl transition skaters in Cologne. I brought my camera along just for the hell of it, because the best camera is the one you have with you.
The more heated session was winding to a close by the time I arrived, but Lennart Kiepe was still keeping it hot with some solid ollies over the ‘hip’ and some ollie to fakie attempts.
While Jan Wermes had his sights on a big backside air over the Volcanic Island…
