We took Denny Pham, Patrick Zentgraf, Jost Arens, Farid Ulrich, Joscha Aicher, Daniel Ledermann & Justin Sommer to Los Angeles as a project for our very first print issue, which will come out in form of a hardcover book this summer.

The good homies Maxi Schaible, Erik Müller & Niels Bennett joined some of our sessions, too! Behind the cameras are Dennis Ludwig filming & Florian Hopfensperger shooting photos.

So far, it’s been 10 days of skating in California for the squad and the fire is still lit.

Los Angeles is a paradise for street skateboarding. But there are some challenges you are facing when you like to skate certain spots on week days. You get kicked out a lot and some spots you are only able to skate at night. But: we came prepared. We ordered a generator and lights and send it to our friends at ETN, where we picked it up on the first day to fight jet lag right away with our very first night session. One of many to come.

We’ve got a nice house in the Hollywood Hills but spend most of our time in the van driving a couple hundred miles daily in search of the next spot. Carpool lane all day, every day!
