Moin I'm Janosch, 91'er year, team rider since 2021.
Whether with fins or on wheels - longboards have been my great passion for 4 years and over time have become an integral part of my life.
From the 5'11 Hot Buttered Shorty from Australia, to the Danish 7'4 Westwind Minimalibu, to a 2nd-Hand Drop-Through from Arbor, to a Bolero from Bastl Boards, that I can now call my first "real" own Lonboard Dancing Board since 2019. So far to my skating biography.
The pragmatic story behind:
Who doesn't know it - there you have limited time to surf and Poseidon rests just when you need it least! So there I was. In the middle of Portugal in Santa Cruz at the picturesque Atlantic coast, looking at the sea and couldn't find any swell far and wide.
So what to do?
More out of desperation I grabbed a completely shredded board with squeaky axles and crumbling wheels in the hope that I would still get some kind of surf feeling. At that time I didn't know that this decision would change my life and a few days later no other dancing queen than Valeryia Gogunskaya opened the gates to longboard dancing for me. From now on, besides our jobs at that time in a small local surf camp, we spent some time together on boards. That was 2017.
Zurück in Hamburg lernte ich dann schnell die rollende Community kennen, die mich mit unfassbar viel Herzlichkeit aufnahm. Ab dann und spätestens seit Sommer 2020 im Coronapandemie-Zeitalter waren wir unzertrennlich Tag und Nacht gemeinsam unterwegs, schlossen wahre Freund*innenschaften und teilten unsere Passion für‘s Longboard Dancing.
More Adventures are yet to come!
In the making - mainly fluffy 78A & 60mm/62 mm wheels, so I can move smoothly even on the rough streets of Hamburg.
