Finally: THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK - Summer Tour 2011 Online!

Like every year, we did a nice and big summer skate tour in 2011. The trip went through Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Italy.
Sorry, this one took some time. Because we waited for the current issue of the "Confusion Magazine". There you find a nice 3 page tourreport about our Tour.

We started the tour in Brixlegg, headed over to Kufstein, then Wörgl, then to Slovenija, good times in Postojna, from there, over to Zagreb, and from there straight to Brescia.

Find here our Online Zine about our tour:


And find here the Tourvideo by Ivo Weibel:

ROUND HOUSE KICK TOUR 2011 from Ivo Weibel

And here ist the full tour report:

Summer had come, which meant for us the oppurtinity for another great Bowl & Pool riding tour! After Basque Country 2009 (West) and Czech Republic in 2010 (East), the decision was easy to go south! The crew was set up as the usual suspects. Sylvain Morger and his brother Damien „Fire“ Morger, Lukas Halter and Ivo Weibel, Reto Bösch and Nicolas Buechi.

So two cars got packed with tents and water guns and we headed full throttle to Brixlegg, Austria. After a first hard session in the deep-end and some early gap ollie feelings, we decided to go to Kufstein, Austria for the indoor Bowl and visiting Oliver Gordon. After a good Schnitzel came the night, and the obligate „loud music, cool beers, fast skating“ session. Which led to an broken inner ligament by myself. Fuck, already on the first day I was out!

Nevermind, the other guys continued to rip. After a good night sleep at the skatepark we headed to Wörgl, Austria, where the locals poured some fresh pool concrete this summer. This was really summer, hot heat and concrete park skating and of course swimming/chilling.

The next day, everyone was alread a bit fucked up, the big travel was on. All in the cars and down to Slovenija. We arrived late at night in Postojna, just to get a BBQ started and the beers in the hand.

The next day we had the pleasure to meet the Locals. So friendly! We had an amazing session, even without poolcopings. As the night fell, we went indoors for the miniramp. Everybody was drunk, skating hard, a small radio playing death metal. Exactly what you call a perfect session. Big Thanks to all Pumpa Locals, specially Tibor and Domes!

From there on it went to Zagreb, Croatia. We went to the pool by our own, but after half an hour, the locals gathered for a good evening session. Even Ferit showed up! And they got an indoor miniramp too! Ivo, Luki and Sylvain probably had their best miniramp runs ever. Stoked as they were we hit back to the hostel for some more Karlovacko. Oh Zagreb, you're wonderful!

Next day was again carriding day. We tried to find the ocean for a swim, but didn't make it, so our next destination was Brescia in Italy. First stop was the railway Park. It's probably the biggest skatepark I've ever been to. Amazing snakerun and a solid 4m deepend. Reto was killing it with his backside tailslides!

Back to the cars and to the Creedence Park. A DIY street park outside of Brescia. After 15minutes of skating, a thunderstorm came, but also arrived Guido and the locals, which took us to the Knödel Indoor Bowl. It was the last session of the tour, and everybody went big!

So went our Summer Tour 2012 to an amazing end. Thanks a lot to the Postojna Locals, Zagreb Pool Crew, Creedence, Knödel & Guido, Oli Gordon and the Kufstein/Wörgl Locals!

The story of Moritz Greber.

photos: nicolas buechi

Yeah, this one rocks.

Wir freuen uns sehr den neuesten Teamzugang zu verkünden. Moritz Greber aus Basel aka Möre. Der Möre ist seit langem schon bekannt für seine Transition Skills. Und da er schon lange mit uns unterwegs ist, war der Schritt ihn ins Team zu holen, mehr als naheliegend! Neben September Wheels wird er von Shema Skateboards unterstützt, das ergänzt sich ja auch grad noch gut!

so, da kommt das brett geflogen. und eine millisekunde später hatte es der fotograf dann auch am kopf.

one man down.

ok, und so sollte es dann effektiv aussehen.

Spätestens als er dem Teamchef beim fotografieren mal das Brett an den Kopf gespickt hat und dieser nachher in den Spital musste, war der Fall klar, der Möre muss für September fahren. Blut für Blut! So leicht kommt er nicht davon.

Geboren irgendwo in der Aargauisch/Baslerischen Provinz wohnt er zwischenzeitlich in Basel City, was bedeutet, dass er meistens den BlackCrossBowl oder das Gundeli am rippen ist. Und zwar richtig. Und anscheinend neuerdings auch die Vert im Pumpwerk. Wir freuen uns Möre an Bord zu haben, ich glaube das wird noch ein Heidenspass!

Jan in the Carhartt Ad's

Photography: Roberto Alegría

It made quite a bit the round on the internet, but I have to post this also, because the pictures look so good, and the ad is made with the big style shovel.

Jan went for some days to Barça, and this is the result. SIMPLY AMAZING!

Please welcome: THE BEAUTY

all Photos: Nicolas Buechi

After finishing THE BEAST this fall, for all of us it was clear like a backside air that we need a winter residence to pass this cold, ugly swiss winter. So please say hello to THE BEAUTY.

As we had finished the first building step, THE BEAUTY was ready for her first action filled night. A "MOTÖRHEAD ONLY" playlist, a bucket full of cheap, heated red wine and a good crew of friends was all we needed for an epic session.

Stefan the electrician showed up really early, to get a few lines without to many drunk people around. Backside Smith.

For a session like this, Luki the Nurse was in for sure. Thanks to his dad, who gave us his concrete mixer!Frontside Smith to Fakie.

If you got Ivo on the scene, you know there will be Backside Tailslides and crazy blunt combos!

Luki again, feebles, 2.5m long, no prob.

and the other way round, also no prob.

A good surprise, John Marc Deere showed up, going hispeed switch fuchsgrind.

Ok, if you see Reto climbing somewhere up, you know whats gonna happening.
RETO DROP from hell. Trick of the night, and he did it again, just for fun, 3 or 4 times.

If Don Natter comes down from Basel, you know it will be a funny night. Frontside feeling it.

Before he had to leave, a short feeble from Ste the electrician.

Ok, now change sides. The Wallride Session started to explode. This was the beginning, Ste the Electrician just going a bit vert.

Schumi, the only not drunk that night, having fun with "Back to the Roof" Wallrides. That's how they go!

Okay, this one wasnt a make, but he tried so hard, I have to post this picture.

Powerslide Wallrides to fakie aren't a single bit easy on a brick wall. Fuck Yeah Ivo.

Sylvain, shows, what has to be built, has to be ridden!

Ok, then things started to get weird. Möhre shows us, that he know to lick. the roof.
Schumi, tried in also, slamming his head more then once to the roof.

Just an easy one, fakie wallride.

Nollie Bigspin on a brick wall??? easy for Ivo.

You can't push your head more against a roof, as Don Natter did. Holy fuck.

But after this, the fun wasn't all over! We also had the video Premiere of our Summer Tour Video through Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Italy on. We'll post the video soon, check also the tour report in the upcoming issue of the Confuzine Mag.
Everyone was happy, everyone rocked, everyone was drunk, so perfect to head over to the Grindcore Concert of a friend. Say hello to THE BEAUTY.
