Sven came over to the house the night before for the little Gypsy Life Switzerland premiere and said he would take me under his wing for my last day and show me around town as all the other homies were working. We had an incredible skate on the mini ramp, I suggested line after line for sven to try and he would do each one within 3 shots, the swiss machine has some serious boards control! Switch flip nosegrinds first shot . . . we then headed to a slappy curb and slappied away until the rain set in. We then decided to have some beers and ended my last night in swiss were it alla began at the new beauty D.I.Y spot inside a big squat house on the outskirts of Zurich. Safe to say we filmed a whole part for Gypsy Life 2 in 1 day . . . BEAST! Hope your well buddy!

We decided to have a chill night Saturday and boost it upto Basel early Sunday morning to pay a visit to the legendary now deceased Black Cross Bowl. Made by Locals with the help of Pontus Alv back in 2öö7 I think. Since the begining of this trip I always wished to make it up to the north of Swiss to visit this beast, when we made it there i felt like some kind of skate rat pilgrim, incredible place!

We bombed around town the night before and ended up at some free gig were we all got rich. If u returned your plastic cup after drinking your beer the bar would give you 2 swiss francs which is close to 2 euros i think. People just left the cups around all over the place and i think i ended up with around 6ö francs. The following morning i thought it would be a nice gesture to share my winnings among my hosts, so i went and bought food and made a big breakfast for the crew. We then met up with Mirco who got his hands on his mums wheels and we headed out to the mountains to skate some parks and bbq it up on a sunny spring afternoon.

We started the day at this epic spot and then just dodged the rain all afternoon hitting a few undercover spots. In the arvo we went to check out the oldest D.I.Y spot in Zurich once again made by the September Wheels guys. Once again it started raining, luckily we were close to an indoor mini ramp inside this incredible squat. D.I.Y houses and all . . . Living the dream!!!
