Weekend in Malmö/Copenhagen 7

I had a very nice weekend in Malmö and Copenhagen. Malmö is definately the place to be if you like skateboarding and happen to live in Sweden.

On Saturday the rain was falling down so we spent the day at the indoor park, Bryggeriet, in Malmö. Most likely the best skatepark in Sweden. On the evening we went to a skate party at something called Savannen. A small, very rough, cement park. It was fun even though skatewise there were too many people.

On Sunday we took the bridge over to Denmark and Copenhagen where we skated Faelledparken. I must say that this is the best skate park I’ve been to. Outdoors, asphalt and SMOOTH with plenty of well built obstacles.

Before gooing back to Gothenburg we stopped at the beach in Malmö where we skated a mini ramp and bathed in the ocean. A pretty nice, mellow session to end a perfect weekend. My friend Eda managed to get a pretty nice image of me doing a frontside rock.

    Hälsingnar, Erik.

    Min hustru och jag semstrade i Sverige tre år sedan. Jag tycker Malmö år likadans min egen stad, Houston, Texas — vid kusten, oälskad, många fabriker! Det var hem till mej!

    Skåne är också ganska kul. Jag kan «ikke» skånsk, men vem orka här?

    Ringer du 08- för hem, eller vad då?

    hejsan från Texas….
