One day during the summer a group of Hamburg locals went to the famous Wilhemsburg Banks spot for a session. This spot has been located in the urban district „Wilhemsburg“ forever, but wasn’t skateable for years since parts of the brick-built walls were littered with holes and the chance to run into some fellas that wanted to give you some additional holes as well was highly likely. But since some Skateboarders took care of the first-mentioned conditions and furthermore added a little coping-thing to the banks, this spot got really fun to skate again. That’s what Mark Stamer must have felt when he had a fling at those banks that day. Definitely another edit that shows off his allround-skate-whatever-is-fun talent.
