Thanks to our German team manager, the Z-Team keeps on growing! The latest recruit is Karlsruhe, Germany’s Johannes Haist. At 19 years of age, Johannes is already flying high, taking podium places and demolishing parks with a diverse range of tricks. We’re expecting big things from this guy over the coming years!
Here’s one for your diaries: Shoreham Skatepark in Brighton, England is holding their annual Old Skool Dayz jam next weekend, and we’re proud to be sponsoring the event. We’ll have a stand next to the bowl where people can pick up some of our finest wares, and a selection from our team will be there representing. Expect to see Sean Goff slashing the coping, Tony Gale running freestyle demos and coaching during the downtime between sessions, and some of our young Am team and flow riders demonstrating what the next generation is capable of. We’ll also be giving out free stickers or keyrings to anyone who turns up wearing vintage JIMMY’Z gear from the 80s (Sean Goff is, of course, excluded from this offer).
So dust off your pig boards, break out the high tops and practice your bonelesses; this should be a good one!
As a teaser, here’s a little edit from 2010’s event to get you stoked…
The latest German addition to the JIMMY’Z roster is Münster’s Tom Schulze. Joining an already solid European team of rippers, he tears through some of the sketchiest transition with power, creativity and style – making him a perfect addition to the Z-Team.
Keep your eye out for him in the footage from Titus’ recent DIY Riot in Münster – he’s the guy shredding the bowl in an olive bucket hat*.
The latest addition to the German/Austrian division of the Z-Team is Vienna, Austria’s Lenni Pfeiffer. This 13 year old wünderkind is a street ripper, and we look forward to watching him develop over the coming years!
