Ever skated on a ramp 7 meters off the ground?
Jaakko Ojanen, Philipp Schuster, Mason Merlino and George Poole rip the warehouse paradise of Europe’s biggest wooden park builder.
Fürstenzell in Bavaria, Germany, is home to the production centre of Europe’s premiere ramp builder, IOU Ramps. Chances are that if you have ever skated a wooden park in mainland Europe in the last 2 decades, you have appreciated the handiwork of Andreas ‘Schützi’ Schützenberger. From the streetcourse at the much-missed European Skateboard Championships to the Oslo Skate Hall, there is barely a wooden construction worth the name which hasn’t been touched by the hand of what we can acknowledge here as a master craftsman in the realm of wooden skateboarding structures.
