Rollbrett Salzburg and easygoinc. present The High Black Corner Jam 2017

The High Black Corner Jam by easygoinc. longboards

It has been pretty quiet around the boys and girls from Rollbrett Salzburg. Who is Rollbrett Salzburg you ask? Seriously?

If you have been to at least one of many BigMountainSkate events, you know the drinking team from Austria and Bavaria and their skateboarding problem. So I guess you probably had at least a beer with one of them.

Other than that, you most likely remember the event they host – The High Black Corner Jam – a downhill skateboard slopestyle festival, where everything is just about fun. An extraordinary event that mixes longboarding and skateboarding into one big thing.

Here is a video by Bros before Pros to give you a better picture.

Now guess what, this article is just about that – the High Black Corner Jam 2017 presented by easygoinc. longboards in the middle of the beautiful Bavarian Alps.

This year’s event in Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden is not your usual season opener, but planned right before KnK Longboard Camp (week #1), to loosen your legs if you have a long drive to Slovenia. The event is most likely on everyone’s travel route.

For the Rollbrett Salzburg crew, the event from the 21st to 23rd of July is just about coming together, hanging around, have a few beers, skating a few ramps, doing a few slides and playing some mini games.

It is also a great opportunity to try something new, like skate with 4 different types of scrubbies, a board without grip, a beer bench and much more craziness while battling for some neat sponsor prizes while playing mini games.

The registration for this year’s event is already open with a registration fee of 50 €, which includes three days of skate fun including camping. Click here to register.

The beer is cheap, the music is good (yes, there will also be a live band) and Rollbrett Salzburg will also offer breakfast and dinner, which is not included in the registration free.

See you on the hill and on the ramps!

The High Black Corner Jam 2016 Recap – Just In Case You Missed It

The High Black Corner Jam 2016 Recap

It was a hell of a weekend for the Team of Rollbrett Salzburg and all the 100 skaters who came up to our home spot in Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden.

The Rollbrett Crew hosted their second Downhill Freeride Slopestyle Festival from the 27th to the 29th of May 2016. It turned out to be the biggest event we threw down to this point. The team built up a badass Slopestyle track for the skaters for all different levels and different styles – perfect conditions for a weekend of pure skateboarding.

The basic idea of the event was to invite longboarders from all over Austria and Germany but as well to support the local Salzburg skateboard scene. A chance to try some downhill, go nuts on obstacles and also the IOU Miniramp let them up to the event as well.

On Friday most riders arrived and were pretty eager to go skate. Alhtough only a few tried the obstacles around the track, we could look at some serious skating and tricks.

For example Nico Nührig, a well know all-terrain shredder from Austria, went crazy as one of the first guys on the obstacles. Little later, after he broke the ice for the rest of the riders, a few others tried to hit the slopestyle track. Guys like German skater Lukas Voigt as he did a massive tre-flip with his longboard – nice to had you around buddy!

The first day of skating took it’s tall. The day ended with a little miniramp session in front of the beautiful panorama of the german alps, some beers and some skate videos – all in all a successful first day and riders could even expect more for the next day!

Saturday showed us its beautiful sunny side. A full day of skating was on it’s way. The guys just got insanely comfortable on all the obstacles and shit was about to go down!

After noon it was time for some mini-games: Koffer and me, Markus dresses up as traditional german gameshow hosts, figured out 40 challenges and got everyone hyped on the minigames! Check out the list: “Prost Mahlzeit” – skate the beerbank or “Beiboot” – skate a LY Dinghy or “Verpackungskünstler” – skate with a carton around your body or even “zom hoidn” – skate down stand up hand in hand with a friend!

People were hyped and it was tons of fun to watch the guys go nuts, smile and win some nice goodies – a big shoutout to all our sponsors for that!

While the mini games went down, the warm up for the miniramp contest started already. Local shredders from Bavaria and Salzburg showed up and enjoyed the big IOU Miniramp while entertaining the crowed.

Well, and besides all this fun and much runs of skating, people were super eager to party. And party with Rollbrett means something – Rock’n’Roll baby! So the guys invited Ooral Sea from Slovenia to play and have fun!

And yeah, what should I tell you? It was fucking fun and a really sick concert and you better wait and have a look at the upcoming Ooral Sea – High Black Corner Jam video! If you haven’t been here this year, that thing most definitely will convince you, trust me!

Sunday was lazy Sunday. Nah, not quite lazy Sunday, but a few riders left early and missed there chance to participate at the “Pfoten in die Luft” outlaw race. A fun mix of 2,3 and the final 4 riders who where only allowed to skate stand up and with the hands in the air. But, they were allowed to use all obstacles. Check this one out to see what happened, when Nico Nührig took the shortcut through the gras and won the heat of the final four!

So what more is needed to be told, I cant thing of any. You better check out Rollbrett Salzburg and Longboardingmagszine.eu to get the first insight for the next years registration and not miss next years madness! See you on the hill!

Hawgs Wheels presents High Black Corner Jam 2016 by Rollbrett Salzburg

The High Black Corner Jam presented by Hawgs Wheels is a downhill skateboarding event with a very special feel – besides going downhill and putting your board sideways, you can also skate ramps, rails, banks and much more to get creative with your skating.

The Rollbrett Salzburg crew (mixed with some rad dudes from Salzburg and Berchtesgaden) are planing to go bigger and better the last year’s event. From the 27th to 29th May 2016 the little slide-spot in Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden, will be completely rebuild into a big Downhill Slopestyle Freeride track.

The Crew call the High Black Corner Jam a “Longboard Slopestyle Freeride Festival” and when looking at everything, that Rollbrett Salzburg is setting up this year, I guess you understand why.

Here’s some of the hard facts about the High Black Corner Jam presented by Hawgs Wheels:

  • around 200 m2 wood for obstacles
  • party tent, live music and drinks (cheap, but good choice of beer of course)
  • miniramp
  • campground
  • food service
  • small contests & giveaways
  • plus some more funny stuff they don’t even know by themselves by now

I guess this are some convincing informations.

The riders limit will be set at 100 and the registration fee is 50 Euros with camping included. You can register via Rollbrett Salzburg website and join us for some slopestyle skateboarding fun!

By the way, peep the video from last year, if you aren’t convinced already 😉

Banana Longboarding – The best of 2015

Banana Longboarding – The best of 2015

The year is almost over and as winter slowly starts to take over, it is time to take a look back to this amazing season, which of course does not mean we stopped skating, because fortunately the roads over here are still dry and snow free. Probably even snow would not keep us away from doing it, but deep down we all wish the summer back, especially with all this great memories and the certainty, that 2016 is going to top it again.

The BananaCrew, located in Vienna enjoyed the season on their favourite homespots, explored tons of new roads and had an amazing time during all the events skating the sickest mountain passes that Europe has to offer.

First we joined the High-Black-Corner-Jam in Berchtesgaden organised by Rollbrett Salzburg, where the riders basically had a downhill skatepark with some sweet hairpins for sliding.

After that, it was time for the BigMountainSkate event series, which started with the by now infamous Alpenrauschen, a really fast and dangerous track.

Next stop was the KNK Longboard Camp, a six-day-long event in Slovenia, where we had countless runs on the Bear. The fact that it was our third time at KNK, shows how much fun this road is.

Then, in August, there was Bela Joyride, again well organised by the BMS Crew, providing the stoked skaters a 6km long rollercoaster with 16, mostly banked hairpins. The name speaks for itself!

Finally there was the well known LoRaLo, a freeride and race at the same time, with a night slide jam and mini ramp contest, which fulfils all a downhill skater could ever wish for. About two month ago we organised a little slide jam on one of our favourite slide spots in Vienna, which was a lot of fun too.

And to top it of, between all these events we skated the wonderful BananaLand!

So you can imagine how stoked we are about the past season! Some of this great skate moments are captured in our 2015 Compilation and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Big thanks goes the the awesome downhill community in general, and especially to the BigMountainSkate Crew, Rollbrett Salzburg and Longboard Magazine!

Easygoinc. Longboards Downhilla – New Road, New Competition with Nussi

New Road, New Competition with Nussi featuring Easygoinc. Downhilla

You might have already met Gregor “Nussi” Nussbaummüller somewhere on a hill or read about him in one of our recent posts. That dude rocks, both on and off the track. Today he dropped in with another sick video, but this time he’s the one being in front of a lens. The run was filmed by Sebastian Gschaider.

Possible new events by Rollbrett Salzburg

Europe is usually fully packed with awesome events all summer long and it seams like Rollbrett Salzburg might throw additional one or two as well in 2016, in Salzburg’s surroundings in Austria. One of the candidates for a venue is exactly that challenging fast and techy track from the video you just watched. I’m definitely looking forward to get some of it. Keep us in the loop, Nussi!

For me, the cleanest way to get down on roads like these is to try them Stand up! It´s not always the easiest way and sometimes there are a few sketchy moments, but it´s funny and I think it´s important to learn how to handle these situations to improve your skills and get on a higher level! ~ Nussi

The guys over at Rollbrett Salzburg are super stoked about it and so are we. Bring it on!

Easygoinc. Longboards – Downhilla

Nussi’s repping Easygoinc. Longboards, a relatively young longboard making company from Austria which has been on a rise lately. They have a solid team as well. Beside Nussi, Jan Winkler, Mirko Paoloni and Michael Joschenak are there to help them develop, shred and spread the stoke.

Responsible for the production and marketing, Ali, David and Martin started with the idea of building longboards in 2012. “The three free spirits”, as they like to call them self, are dedicated to deliver a high-quality longboards with attention to details at affordable prices.

They’re using some kind of basalt fabric of volcanic origin in their boards to deliver even better strength than with a conventional fibreglass while still providing a desired amount of flexibility. Don’t know what kind of sorcery that is, but it must be working as so far everyone had only good stuff to say about their longboards.

Nussi’s favorite board of choice is the Easygoinc. Downhilla a topmount board designed for speed and stability. It features a radial 8mm drop and flared wheel-wells for maximum wheel allowance and that extra foot lock we all love and need. This 92cm and 25cm wide beauty allows for 9 wheelbase options, from 67.5cm to 71.5cm.

Downhilla, the name of the board explains what it stands for, we put our best Ideas together and designed a directional shape with a smooth radial drop of 8mm. The perfect mix of a mellow concave, a twin-tip rocker and wheel flares at the right position gives your feet a unique feeling. I ride it with Bear Kodiak trucks and Boss Hawgs Wheels, in my opinion a awesome Freeride Setup! ~ Gregor “Nussi” Nussbaummüller

Of course, you can order a deck only, but if you are down for getting a complete, you’ll be happy to know that in their shop they offer Caliber or Bear trucks and Hawgs or Blood Orange wheels as well.

Check out their website for more info and some other awesome boards in their range or follow them on Facbook. There’s something for everyone.
