Vert-Rollerskating in the early eighties
: : another time really suprised about the short response-time to my first entry in this forum :)
: I think everyone here is just happy to hear from other people enganged in this crazy activity.
: Give my regards to Martin Broich. Maybe he remembers me from Karlsruhe. And tell him that he should get on his roller skates!
Hi Bernhard, still in this moment I finished a telefoncall to Martin. Yes, he remembers you very well, he told me about the green ramp and stuff like this. He excuses himself for not writting back to you and this forum directly but within the next weeks we have in appointement here at my home. Then he promised me to bring along some good old (and maybe new?) photostuff and he affirmed me, that he is still Rollerskating :) So be prepared for some nice pics within the next weeks
: : But in the early nineties we had some great sessions together, mostly in Senden but sometimes also in Havixbeck, Münster and once in the Tropica in Hemsbach. I think this was in 1990, cause it was my only contest, I took part.
: I also participated once in a Tropica contest. It's been the one when Bo Elsbol knocked himself into the hospital when attempting a 900.
: : And if the vert contest is taking part again next year, then I'll come maybe, but lots of tricks get lost about the past 16 years, so you'll win the contest anyway :)
: I can't even particate because I can't ride this ramp! Maybe next year ... But probably I stick to taking photos.
: : But maybe you can tell me, where you've been skating in the beginning of your "career"?
: I've been skating mainly in Freiburg and on ramps neat Freiburg. Some more places I've been to: Basel, Stuttgart, Adelberg, Tropica, Münster, Cologne, Bonn, Singen, Zürich, Zug, ...
: I don't remember I've we have met in some place. Do you know Arne and Lars Languth?

Yes, shure, I know them, I met them once personally, I think it was about those days where the monster mastership took part in münster in 1989 or 1990. We smoked a big bucket alltogether, I think theres has been also Helge Tscharn, another brilliant rollerskater from the older days. But I definitively don't now, what they're doing now? But maybe you have heard about the Porno Twins? In memory here is a spectacular Interview taken from I thin the fifth issue of the monster magazin in 1987, I never read with less information, but who cares :) Enjoy
