10 YEARS SUBVERT SKATEBOARDING
In summer 2014 subVert will become 10 years old!
it started 2004, when Volker Lux was organizing a Skateboard and BMX Vert and miniramp competition on the huge vertramp he had planned, organized and built in 1991 in Bonn's Rheinaue Park. All of a sudden it became a wolrdcup, getting visited by his vert friends from South America, Down Under, Asia, North America and Europe!
Check out the report on sk8mag.de
We'll put out more information soon about the history of subVert and Volker Lux, who started skateboarding 30 years ago!
You will find it here, one fine day....

The last event of our 10 years anniversary celebrations will be the 10th Einheizslam we organize together with the SPORTGARTEN:
it'll be a 2 day-event with live music by VOLLKONZERT agency (Ska, punkrock...) and a sweeet session the next day at ÜBERSEESKATEPARK.
Around 1.500 € pricemoney!
The first to celebrate this anniversary
was a new "signature beer label" for his very old friend Jeff "Ffej" Hedges who had already visited the vertramp Lux & friends had built in 1986 in Bonn!
Ffej got it handed out at VERT ATTACK 8 (the world's biggest vert event, since VA1 supported and visited by Lux), but did not drink enough of it, as he wanted to stay in shape for the next day (he was prequalified for the semifinals of the gnarliest Master competition ever!)
Guess what happened? He slammed fucking hard the next morning!
So if you wanna stay healthy: go for the SUBVERT MASTERS BRÄU! ;-)
