Random story’s you want to share?
I have a few ….
Dont ever get addicted to oxycontin pain killers. Its a hell getting out of that shit. Bite the pain. And when you start skating, loose those trucks. I know what im talking about.
I remember DM in Sminge 1987 or 88. Half pipe and concrete pool. That was the first contest i saw. It was really crazy. Everybody had the gas pedal on max.The Copenhagen skates team was there. That was THE team. You guys where ripping. I got a Copenhagen skates t-shirt, and i was a proud beginner.
Lars Olsen you where really good then. And me and Dan from Århus came to visit your ramp in Odense, and i was thinking, “you can do every tricks there is” You made me learn frontside air in a day in Sminge.
Also went to Munster monster mastership,90,91, to watch the WM madness. It was crazy to watch the film idols in real time craziness. That was the first time a Brasilian skater was introduced to the scene. And it was no joke. I remember thinking “how can he be that good” But they are still showing how.
In Pat Ngoho’s run doing a weelie on the platform, a photographer was in front of him. And got pushed so hard, that he was flying backwards, and Pat still wheeling and went into the ramp again, people went crazy.
And caveman Lee Ralph in he’s Dr Martin boots was a man to remember.
And it was the first introduction to Danny Way. He was a kid, ripping so hard it looked like photoshop.
I could go on and on. But i will not take any more of your time. Get out and skate
Anja, friends and family and Bjarke for making me go to Sminge in 87
