Longboarder vs Photographer

The prime example of a perfect close call.


If I had to pick one of the craziest and most memorable moment from 2017, it definitely would be this one. I still get weak knees when I think back…

On the first day of a five days longboard event I’ve been standing in one of the fastest corners of the whole course. The track marshal called „Nussi“ – the guy you see in the video – told me about James Kelly, a pro Longboarder from the USA. As he told me about him, I knew straight away that I want to get as close to the action as possible. And so did I.

When James entered the corner I made a pretty quick decision to push the limit even further and lean as far as possible into the corner.


Thanks to James Kelly for being a such badass on your board.
And special thanks goes to my client easygoinc. and to Nikon Austria for letting me play with a Nikon D5 for two weeks – even though I nearly killed me and the camera.
Also big thanks to David Lugmayr for the rad video. 🙏🏻👊🏻
