Skate and Explore: Farewell Europe – Landyachtz

“When you’re travelling you don’t always get to spend as much time in places as you’d like. Sometimes the short stops and quick visits are the most memorable. The crew gets treated to great hospitality in Zagreb, Croatia before the long drive to Austria to skate what is pretty much a downhill skatepark in the forest. Then throw in a BBQ skate jam with a rad community in St. Gallen, Switzerland. The team can’t thank everyone enough for all the help along the way.” – Landyachtz

David “Fingerbang” Rudgers (Landyachtz, Caliber, S1) was out with Alex and Alberto working on a fresh new edit. That day turned out to be another fresh reminder of the obvious but often forgotten fact that: Downhill Skateboarding is Dangerous. Despite wearing a CPSC Certified S1 Lifer David fell in such a way where the helmet did not cover him. Sometimes despite our precautions the unexpected happens. He broke a very thin section of his skull that covers the sinus cavity. David has had an awesome attitude throughout the whole endeavor, making good friends with his surgeon, and managing to laugh his way into the operating room. He is now on his way to a full recovery. We love you David!
