Valeri Rosomako’s Propeller Island Moments

Best Propeller Island moment:

Pre-session in the Bright-boat at a chill 29°C; felt like baking in an oven! I had to jump into the dirty river Spree right after…!

Best Berlin-tourist moment:

When Harry Heffner and Tom Brinkerhof from San Francisco came over – and found a ton of spots even we didn’t know! Felt like they’d been here forever and were an instant part of the crew.

Best Radio-Posse party moment:

Too many… one pretty epic night of recent times was the belated christmas party after Atiba’s exhibition for winter Bright; burning Christmas trees, the whole nine yards… really lived up to Radio’s reputation!

Best Radio new blood moment:

The Mondays at Kluturforum, when Justin (Sommer) and Phillipp (Oehmige) are flying down all these huge gaps. Stokes me out again and again!

Best random spot moment:

When we found these crazy half/fullpipes in Berlin-Spandau; we instantly knew this was a mega-bust, yet all managed to get our tricks and bailed in time to not get fucked.

Best Kreuzberg moment:

May 1st – that’s when the good times start here; all those nice mellow nights and the kick-off to a sick summer of skating.

Best fishing moment:

Haven’t had one in a while. But when we tried to catch carps from a supermarket aquarium during the Drive was pretty epic!


Best skate & create moment:

When you pass by somewhere for the 1000. time and suddenly notice you can just lift a plate, prop your board underneath something or do whatever little turn to come up with a proper new spot.

Best Search & Destroy moment:

The Search & Destroy solidarity party at SO36 and the legendary karaoke session at Franken that followed…

Best Franken moment:

It’s always tough to say, the most epic moments at Franken are usually also the worst ones… you end up with the worst hang-over the next day – a double-edged sword! The Christmas party at Franken was one of those.

Best Arne (Krüger; Radio skateboards don) moment:

When he took us to Broiler-Jam in Dresden, Germany and we went for a swim in a lake on the way back: Being in the same water as Arne, feeling the energy… and his cannon balls…

Best BCN moment:

Each morning waking up at the Loch (Steve Forstner’s apartment).

Best Irie Daily warehouse moment?

When I built a curb for me and my mates to skate on brakes and after work. Kept me from having to pay at Skatehalle.

Best (Francisco) Saco moment:

After the 1st of May weekend, when we went to the fair at Hasenheide all hung-over. I forced him to go in the most crazy ride of all, twisting and flipping – I got to see the real Saco, screaming crazy… I think he hated me after!

Best Jo (Peters) moment:

Chilling in his allotment, barbequing, drinking Picon, pretending to be an old fart.

Best Valeri Rosomako moment:

Hmm… maybe the trip we did recently: Israel with Sergej (Vutuc) and Francisco (Saco) – sick crew, sick locals, sick spots – best times ever!
