I've been to Malmo a good few times now, and each time its rad, never old, all gold. I got there a day early than me mate Perrrr had been expecting due to Love rolling his ankle in Stockholm, so I found myself wondering around Malmo with rain on me head, no filming done and no plan as I hadn't banked on rain.
It was in a newsagent while flicking through their skate mags that I was approached by a stout fella in skate-dude clothes who asked me, in an ozzy accent, if i spoke English. To which I responded "Do you knwo Jezza" He was living with him, small world.. ahhh skateboarding.
The guy in question is Blake, a.k.a. Ducky. Per had told me about him in advance.: "he's the best fat skateboarder you'll ever see" He wasn't lying, ducky ripped!
Saturday was mainly a wash-out, so we washed it down with manys the local tipple.
Jezza queuing for a denim jacket that didn't exist just for a crack of the whip. "Haaand t' glaaand combat mate!"
Can Ducks snore? They fuckin can! I was awoken my ducky's snorts after four hours kip on Jezza & Tomsy's floor. Time was tickin, very little filming had been done, so I removed myself from the floor with a spatula and hit the main park with Tomsy.
Fortunately the sun was out, Per Mag was up, and he ripped, with his bro John making a cameo too. That bowl is fuckin scary man let tell yeh, the two lads made mince meat of it in the nonchalant Swedish man-ripper way.
We took a break to watch the Swedish women's footballers play Argentina in d'lympics. Proud people.
We had to hit the off license at mid day. they're like boutiques, full of warm beer, and only open at anti-social hours. Gettin a brew is a mission here unless you want half strength "Lolly water"-Jez
We hit the streets much to my appreciation, man the spots were so so fun!
This is the Doc. Former brain surgeon, now a G.P. & a full time zip-zinger! This dude is 450 and has the energy of a 5 year old. If you ever encounter him ask him how he got the name 5 doc. Here he is mid-way through a song he wrote about local teen ripper Leon. Hopefully i can get a copy as my words would not do it justice.
This is Malmo's newest park that Tomsy Jezza & the locals built, and man, I gots to tell ya its wan of the mellowest and most fun parks I've ever had the pleasure of rolling in. No metal coping, nothing high, tonnes of hump and these grrrrrindy red cerbs everywhere, excellent stuff lads. The two boys will hopefully be building a park back here soon, anything like this would be very welcome in my opinion, you can't get bored here!
We got a lift off some English dudes in the back of their van.
Then it was home time. Cheers to Per, Jez & Tomsy for letting me stay at the Couch Inn. Until next time..
