Simon Stricker vs. old man

While filming for his part, Simon Stricker (FlipBones WheelsBones Bearings, Silver TrucksMob GripShorty’s Hardware) encountered an angry senior citizen who didn’t want Simon to ride away clean after his Nollie Heelflip down the doubleset.
A Slalom run-up, not really a problem for Simon. Mission accomplished!

Simon Stricker Big in Japan

Simon Stricker (FlipBones WheelsBones Bearings, Silver TrucksMob GripShorty’s Hardware) and Pascal Duschletta went on a Red Bull trip to Japan to film a very nice short clip in the Mega City of Tokyo.
Unfortunately they didn’t had the chance to skate a lot because of rain and the securities which busted them at every single spot they tried to skate.

Summer Leftovers

Simon Stricker (FlipBones WheelsBones Bearings, Silver TrucksMob GripShorty’s Hardware) is a very productive fella and he just releases another leftover part. I guess not many people would consider these tricks as leftovers. If I would have been filming all these tricks, the clip would have been called “after dark bangers” 🙂

The last Session in Block

15 years ago, I designed the Block Skatepark in Winterthur/Switzerland.
With the help of IOU Ramps and a handful of motivated kids, we managed to build one of the most iconic and important Skateboard facilities in Europe.

January 6th 2014 this era was over and the Skatepark shut its doors for good.
Since I never filmed and Street Footage in that park I went back for the very last time to safe some memories.
RIP Block

 

Thanks to Simon Stricker for filming.

Red Bull Triple Set Contest San Diego

The last week I’ve been traveling up and down Southern California with Fabio Martin, Elias Buess and Lars Eugster, the winners of the Swiss Red Bull DIY Contest.
As one of the highlights, besides skating at the Berrics or the Tumyeto Miniramp was the Red Bull Triple Set Contest on the rooftop of the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego.

Simon Stricker (Flip Skateboards, Silver Trucks, Bones Wheels, Bones Bearings, Mob Grip, Red Bull, Vans Volcom) who was joining us on the trip, could enter the competition and ripped the qualifications

 

 

unfortunately this wasn’t good enough and Simon had to watch the Finals with us.

Thanks Red Bull, for the amazing trip!
