For the third year now, it is a pleasure to work with Tanja at Chixxs on Board.
The first „Chixxs get together“ beginner clinic this year we held in a local 20km/h spot, perfect for the first meters on a longboard.
The second edition is about to come up & I can’t wait to see the girls who are signed up for the intermediate clinic in September. Sign up here. That one will be happening in Luzern where Number One Skate Shop hosts the group.
My favorite quote for edition #1 of the girl who just came for the stoke of skating in a ladies group: „I’ll just try all the stuff switch now!“ she made me wanna hug her!
Oh, oh, it’s been way too exciting this year! … I never even got to update this here. Sometimes, focussing on living makes more sense than letting the world know what you do 😉
More to come about an awesome trip to Japan & cowboys on the West Coast.
I’ll get ready for the first Chixxs Get Together in Zürich now! A longboard workshop on our city spot, initiated by Tanja at Chixxs On Board, a platform for ladies in board sports based in Zürich.
Embrace the sun!
Finding relics of my summer activities. As earlier mentioned, the smile at your sister ladies invited me to be part of the second edition of secret smile, a nicely mixed goodie bag full of surprises. Contributions of artists, graphic designers, singer/ songwriters and authors arranged by Daniela Bily und Kathrin Knapp. My special surprise was the little, colorful a stick on monster tattoo!
Happy, I could contribute a few lines and hope to be part of the next edition od secret smile.
Sophie Friedel asked me to create a blog log for her page where she shares thoughts, design and art related things on her digital platform for the art of living sideways!
With the innocence of a fawn, Sophie seems to walk through this world without any prejudice, source of never ending energy, protecting the good and the colourful things in this world!
She was living and working in Kabul for the Skateistan project which is still animating children to go to school and skate.
It is wonderful to have inspiring and openminded people around us!
My skate buddy Gloria Kupsch published an article in the Australian Heelside magazine that is worth reading! Yes, it is about ladies in longboarding again. Just better than what you read until now.
Here’s the link to the article!
Just like Gloria, I had talked so much about women in boardsports that I almost forgot about what this actually is… it is about skateboarding!
Thank you Frau Kupsch – and now let’s not talk but skate.
Here we go! The interview I did with the 7Sky Magazine is now ready to be read.
Check it out here.
I feel honored that I got an interview published in the latest <a href=“http://www.7skymagazine.ch/“ target=“_blank“>7Sky Magazine</a>! <i>Silence</i> is the title of this issue and I am very happy that downhill longboarding made it’s way in there.
Thank you very much Coco Tâche!

Sometimes it’s ok to be sick. At least if there is enough energy to do the things that usually there isn’t time for.
… Such as working on this years appearance. I can’t wait to get my NJK suit!
Or finishing things like …
