In a small town called Wörgl, located in the tyrol alps between the riptide of the Inn and landscapes that spreads subtle vibes as soon as you cross the border, you will find a handcrafted skatepark being one of the best in its field.
A DIY project that got triggered by Roman “Asti” Astleitner & Marco owner of the local skate shop Pilotto and which is now – after 13 years of construction – one of the most stunning, fun and beastly skateparks you will find in all over Europe.
Not least because of that, Skateboarders from all over Europe visit Wörgl year after year for a mandatory stop while crossing the Alps.
So after the last part of the skatepark was being finished this year, we decided that it was finally time to unleash the concrete beast with an opening party that worships the hard work.
The mixture was as easy as it could get – 2000€ cash for tricks, custom made Volcom X Wörgl X Independent truck trophies, a pigling BBQ, live music and cold austrian refreshments.
We’d like to thank all of the locals and workers like Ralf Edlinger, Alex Kapfinger, Hannes Sautner, Peter Stromberger Leo Teissl, Roman Erhart that made this skatepark come to life. More over we’d like to thank Roman Astleitner as the head of this project, the Pilotto skateshop, Muckefuck Urethane, Mark Scott & Joey Martin (Dreamland Skateparks), Chet Childress, Willis Kimbel, Emil Kästle and all of the other helping hand
