Spit and Stone skate bash – Sondika, Basque Country – Spain

“Nothing is better than going back to the classics. If you follow the ancient recipe, the cake will stoke the heard. Skate, beers and fire. That´s the way it happened in Sondika´s bowl, Basque Country. Many riders skated during the evening of the March Saturday 7th, but just a few dared to feel the fire on their shinbones when the sun was about to set. Smoked tricks over the fire taste way better than others. Crazy dudes didn´t even care about burning their hands while they pulled down some inverts on the flamed pool coping. Soldiers and best moves got tons of gear. It was a proper way to celebrate the launch of the Spitfire X Volcom product collab with the dogs from FVCK Skateshop supervising the action. Mission accomplished.”

OWL BOWL opening – Cologne, Germany

October 1st was a momentous day in Cologne with the opening of the first concrete bowl in Germany’s fourth largest city. Built by IOU Ramps and the local skaters of Cologne, the OWL BOWL is located at the NorthBrigade Skatepark, which has been open since the 1980s. Skaters from around Germany showed up for the opening party which was graced with sunny skies, which at this time of the year is a treat, as there was just as much chance the rain would shut down the event.
