Real Street Berlin Jam 2012

Some­how Ber­lin is in no case related to one of the main activ­it­ies of my child­hood — Rollerblad­ing (Yeah — I was a Rollerblader not a Skate­boarder). Prob­ably because I got a little to old to jump on every hand­rail it got less and less that I grabbed my Skates and roll out on the streets of Berlin.

On the other side the city brought together a lot of people I knew from back than and it’s nice to see them grow­ing, start­ing their own busi­nesses, being cre­at­ive and still after these many years (I star­ted skat­ing in 1996) meet up from time to time to cel­eb­rate the youth who still push this sport forward.

Last week­end one of these events took place here in Ber­lin — The Real Street Ber­lin con­test. 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.

I really liked to be on the other side now and enjoyed doing some Skate-Photography of the event.
