You woke up hungover and sweaty. Nothing unusual at Roskilde festival. Went on with your day, and much like the day before, you had an amazing time. The bowl competition proved to be another intense moment, both for the bladers themselves, and the blonde and supportive crowd. Once again, the collective energy helped everyone push themselves. Proof would be that you even tried to blade.

That’s quite a statement, as skating bowls has always been something really personal. Not that you don’t want to share the space. But getting lost in transition requires an intense focus. And that is impossible for you to truly focus when you have to snake in order to drop in. Carving bowls could be compared as some sort of meditative state. And it is pretty hard for you to reach that state when surrounded by the crowd. When having to pay attention to every other blader, to every other person.

However today, you got over it, and actually skated the amazing Roskilde bowl. You briefly reached that point where you are fully in the moment, bouncing around the wooden transitions. And if it weren’t for the crowd, and the great crew of bladers all gathered in Street City, you would have never dropped in in the first place. If it were not for that incredible collective energy, you would have missed out on that brief, yet intense moment. Nothing unusual in Roskilde, either.
