#180sec Köln: Aggressive Inline-Skating mit Matwej


This is
Cologne Cathedral. It’s famous for the skaters
that used to be here. In 2011 they made
the whole area unskateable. They put in notches
that are called ‘grindstoppers’, so that we couldn’t skate here anymore. Ever since the grindstoppers
were fitted we can’t do grinds here anymore.
You either get stuck or you fall in the water. I grew up doing inline skating. I’ve been skating for 7 years,
since I was 13. It’s always been part of my life. I really enjoy skating and I met
lots of my friends through skating. It’s an awesome sport. Cologne is a great city for skating, except we don’t have enough
street spots to skate. Cathedral Square
used to have a lot of great curbs. It was a place where street skaters, people who enjoy skating in urban spaces,
could develop their skills. In terms of skateparks, Cologne has really improved a lot. The city has made an effort
to provide good alternatives. We have a lot of new skateparks,
such as the Zoo Bridge. We have many places to skate. Skateboarders and inline skaters like to use the same spots.
We were always two … groups who hung out,
who skated together. We all like rails and curbs,
we all like to jump ramps. So it’s a pity
Cathedral Square is closed to us. Sure, we can use the skateparks
but it’s a different ambience. But it’s gone now,
so we’ll have to live with it.

  1. Cooles Video und noch viel Erfolg beim weiteren skaten ! PS: Wer hat bearbeitet ? Wenn derjenige gerne schneidet und lust hätte kann sich gerne bei mir melden. Lg

  2. Klasse Video, ich fahre selber viel Inliner und seit mitlerweile einem halben Jahr aggressive Inliner. Schade das man beim Dom nicht mehr so gut skaten kann.

  3. Also ich liebe skaten auch total aber ich bevorzuge das Fahren auf der Ebene und halte mich Fern von Skateparks😅

    Hab auch 90er Rollen und mehr den Temporausch als irgendwo zu grinden. Aber coole Sache trotzdem!
