Somehow Berlin is in no case related to one of the main activities of my childhood – Rollerblading (yea – I was a Rollerblader not a Skateboarder). Probably because I got a little too old to jump on every handrail, I skated less and less on the streets of Berlin.
But Berlin brings all those people from my past back together: to celebrate the youth who still push this sport forward.
The Real Street Berlin contest is one of those events. It focused on the core of skating – the Street. The competitors had half an hour time to show what they got on certain curbs, handrails and gaps. With more than 150 Skaters from all over Germany, Denmark, Poland, Netherlands and even some pros from the US it was a nice session with some crazy tricks.
