The last Miniramp tour stop at the Boardstock in Zug last weekend was much influenced by steady rainfalls. But still, our Skateboard Team and the other skaters on-site were blessed with some dry hours on Sunday. That was the chance for the new kid on the block, Felix Hergert, who came all the way from Munich, Germany, to ride a session with his new buddies of the Zimtstern Skateboard Team, Ivo Schneiter, Cedric Romanens and Fabian Dörig.
Our friends up in Sweden just came up with the teaser of their 2011 movie “Tentacle“. Hans Ahlund didn’t only bust his ass in scouting for new spots and riding them, he collaborated as a coproducer as well!
No miniramp tour stop last weekend but a lot of action in Luxembourg at the skate shooting. The Crew (Fabian Dörig, Ivo Schneiter, Cedric Romanens, Silvio Barro and Dominic Zimmermann) found tons of sick spots and was blessed with the nicest weather what resulted in a great number of awesome shots. Special thanks to all the locals and of course Howzee and our crew for making this happen!
Howzee is on tour with our skateboard team to get some lifestyle and action shots done of our next years summer collection (Spring/Summer 2012). This year’s location: Luxembourg. We’re looking forward to get to see all the shots! Check as well Howzee’s blog.
This year’s pirate movie project is called “Bottom Line” and represents the best of Euro shred. Our Team Riders Hans Ahlund and Björn Hartweger have been collecting shots for the movie all around the world again. You should stay tuned for the teaser and enjoy the summer until premiere season is ON again!
Summary of last weekend at Openair Frauenfeld: A lot of beats, a lot of skateboarding, a lot of hot sunny hours and about the same amount of rainy, muddy moments. The Zimtstern Miniramp was part of the freestyle.ch-TUBE. All visitors were invited to pass by, skate with the pros around Happy Ivo and Ced la Bombe, enter the competition for freestyle.ch tickets and Zimtstern credits, become a freestyle.ch ambassador or just to party and enjoy the tunes of the great DJ’s and band line-up!
As it was pretty hot in Frauenfeld and even hotter in the tent, the skaters decided to stick to just one dresscode: topless!

The Zimtstern Miniramp is built up at it’s next stage by now. Openair Frauenfeld is calling! The Miniramp is part of the TUBE, the party, concert and skate tent presented by freestyle.ch and brings the freestyle sport feeling to Europe’s biggest HipHop Festival. DJ Acts such as the Deichkind DJ-Team and bands, namely the elektro punk band Frittenbude will clap hands with the Skateboard Pros. If you can’t be there, you still can take part in the event competition and win a VIP-freestyle.ch weekend, Zimtstern credits or a brandnew Happy Ivo skate deck!
The Miniramp Tour stop at Free4Style was a huge success. Everyone in Estavayer-le-Lac was waiting for our dream team Happy Ivo and Ced la bombe to build up the Zimtstern miniramp one more time. Together with their friends from the French speaking part of Switzerland they were skating nearly round-the-clock, pushing eachother to the next level. In the end Mickey Iglesias won the competition on Sunday and Brandon Bacor got the freestyle.ch-ticket for the best trick.
