Jßrgen Horrwarth did not have much practice as he took his first runs in the park on Saturday morning and he skated the new version of the Monsterbowl for the first time which didn´t make it easier to skate against Ben Hatchell but his experience to skate anything he sets his wheels on combined with high speed, tons of style, lines and a deep bag of tricks got him a well deseverd first place.

Ben - fs air



Ben Hatchell last years winner and crowd favorite pulled some rad tricks like blunt kickflips, front blunts, high airs, fronside airs over the hip from pool to the medium part.

Ben - front blunt with style



Ivan Federics from Italy was the big surprise of the Bergfest with just 13 years old he could have started in the kids division but with his talent it was obvious that the entered the pros contest and shredded into 3rd place.

Kunst Clash

Words by Roadie

ur friend sits in jail for crimes we do not believe he has committed. Due to the weakness in the evidence against him, the prosecution has grouped him with co-defendants who he had never previously met, who also have substantially more evidence against them. The result is a very slow progress towards trial – it has already been almost 2 years since he was first arrested. We hope the trial will set him free. The expenses associated with his incarceration and defense has been substantial, and some of us are determined to help our friend in this definitive time of need.

Many of these friends are artists, some tattooing, most skateboarding, and our jailed friend is also an artist, skateboarder, and tattoo machine builder. Our friend, ironically sitting so far away in that jail cell, is the glue that holds us all together. With this network of friends, it was a fairly obvious choice to have an art show in order to raise some money and try to help our friend, while bringing us together.

Thus the concept for Kunst Clash was born, a diverse group of artists using different mediums and styles to express themselves. Burns, Schmal, Milly, Tomm, and Seana displayed painted canvases and paper, dabbled and brushed with acrylics, oils, and watercolors. Gerd, Jon, and Sergej hung images captured through their fish eyes and primes, some with double exposures. The metal on display from Beule was beaten, cut, and welded into shapes, painted, glued and decorated into lamps and sculptures. Beers started to flow, ladies sipped sparkling wines, and background music was performed. All admired the art. We missed our friend.

KITTY, DAISY and LEWIS Live at the Hot Jazz club Kitty, Daisy & Lewis don´t need an introduction anymore but if you have not seen them live you missed something. This trio with the support of Daddy Grazz on guitar, Ingrid Weiss on bass and Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton on trumpet really rocks the stage and it shows how much fun they have playing music. If you have the chance to see them make sure to get some tickets.
