L’Órage D’Été

It basically began with a skate trip to Italy, where we managed to avoid l’órage d’été (the summer storm). It was definitely an overall positive trip that I will remember. Two vehicles, camping, a mix of pool coping oriented Swiss Larrys and two unique bowls that Italy had to offer. We had fun, we skated as much as we could. Unfortunately, on the last day during the last session, I snapped my humerus. Italian hospitals, Italian nurses, suggested surgery and a hasty discharge led me back to Switzerland where a second opinion showed that I’d accidentally/luckily put the bone back in place and a screw was no longer needed.

Following this I was off work for 3 months and I spent the majority of it sleeping in a seated position. I was mostly unwell when I went outside, but on a few occasions I chilled by the park and filmed some more. I spent my time inside drawing for animations and slowly editing. Pain killers were strong and things were slow.

Now I’m over a month back on my board and I’m happy to leave this video as it is. I’m most glad of the sentiment it captures. Onwards and upwards.

Troll Bowl 2017

It was a very fun day with very friendly people and a chilled out and relaxed atmosphere. As it was my first time attending I found it very enjoyable. I very much look forward to attending again next year.
