round house kick tour 2011
text nicolas bÜchi
summer had come which meant for us the oppotunity for another great bowl pool riding tour. after basque country in the west and czech republic in the east the decision was easy to go south. the crew was set up as the usual suspects - sylvain morger and his brother damien fire morger lukas halter and ivo weibel, reto bÖsch and nicolas bÜchi
two cars packed with tents and water guns and we headed full throttle to brixlegg austria. after our first hard session in the deep-end and some early gap ollie feelings, we decided to go to kufstein austria for the indoor bowl and to visit oliver gordon. after a good schnitzel came the night and the obligatory loud music, cool beers, fast skating session which led to a broken inner ligament by myself. fuck on the first day i was already out.
never mind the other guys continued to rip. after a good nights sleep at the skatepark, we headed to wÖrgl austria, where the locals poured some fresh pool concrete this summer. this was all about really hot summer heat and concrete park skating and of course swimming and chilling.
the next day everyone was already a bit fucked up. the big travel was on everyone in the cars and down to slovenija. we arrived late at night in postojna just to get a bbq started and the beers in the hand.
the following day we had the pleasure to meet the friendly locals. we had an amazing session even without pool coping. as the night fell we went indoors for the miniramp. everybody was drunk skating hard, a small radio was playing death metal, exactly what you call a perfect session. big thanks to all pumpa locals especially tibor and domes.
from there on it went to zagreb croatia. we went to the pool on our own, but after half an hour the locals gathered for a good evening session. even ferit showed up and they have an indoor miniramp too. ivo, luki and sylvain probably had their best miniramp runs ever. stoked as they were, we hit back to the hostel for some more karlovacko. oh zagreb you are wonderful.
next day was again a car riding day. we tried to find the ocean for a swim but didnt make it, so our next destination was brescia in italy. first stop was the railway park. its probably the biggest skatepark ive ever been to. amazing snakerun and a solid four meter deep end. reto was killing it with backside tailslides.
back to the cars and to the creedence park, a diy street park outside of brescia. after minutes of skating a thunderstorm arrived, but guido also arrived and the locals who took us to the knÖdel indoor bowl. it was the last session of the tour and everybody went big.
so came our summer tour to an amazing end.
thanks a lot to the postojna locals, zagreb pool crew, creedence knÖdel guido, oli gordon and the kufstein wÖrgl locals.
