The year is almost over and as winter slowly starts to take over, it is time to take a look back to this amazing season, which of course does not mean we stopped skating, because fortunately the roads over here are still dry and snow free. Probably even snow would not keep us away from doing it, but deep down we all wish the summer back, especially with all this great memories and the certainty, that 2016 is going to top it again.
The BananaCrew, located in Vienna enjoyed the season on their favourite homespots, explored tons of new roads and had an amazing time during all the events skating the sickest mountain passes that Europe has to offer.
First we joined the High-Black-Corner-Jam in Berchtesgaden organised by Rollbrett Salzburg, where the riders basically had a downhill skatepark with some sweet hairpins for sliding.
After that, it was time for the BigMountainSkate event series, which started with the by now infamous Alpenrauschen, a really fast and dangerous track.
Next stop was the KNK Longboard Camp, a six-day-long event in Slovenia, where we had countless runs on the Bear. The fact that it was our third time at KNK, shows how much fun this road is.
Then, in August, there was Bela Joyride, again well organised by the BMS Crew, providing the stoked skaters a 6km long rollercoaster with 16, mostly banked hairpins. The name speaks for itself!
Finally there was the well known LoRaLo, a freeride and race at the same time, with a night slide jam and mini ramp contest, which fulfils all a downhill skater could ever wish for. About two month ago we organised a little slide jam on one of our favourite slide spots in Vienna, which was a lot of fun too.
And to top it of, between all these events we skated the wonderful BananaLand!
So you can imagine how stoked we are about the past season! Some of this great skate moments are captured in our 2015 Compilation and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Big thanks goes the the awesome downhill community in general, and especially to the BigMountainSkate Crew, Rollbrett Salzburg and Longboard Magazine!
