New Road, New Competition with Nussi featuring Easygoinc. Downhilla

Easygoinc. Longboards Downhilla – New Road, New Competition with Nussi

You might have already met Gregor “Nussi” Nussbaummüller somewhere on a hill or read about him in one of our recent posts. That dude rocks, both on and off the track. Today he dropped in with another sick video, but this time he’s the one being in front of a lens. The run was filmed by Sebastian Gschaider.

Possible new events by Rollbrett Salzburg

Europe is usually fully packed with awesome events all summer long and it seams like Rollbrett Salzburg might throw additional one or two as well in 2016, in Salzburg’s surroundings in Austria. One of the candidates for a venue is exactly that challenging fast and techy track from the video you just watched. I’m definitely looking forward to get some of it. Keep us in the loop, Nussi!

For me, the cleanest way to get down on roads like these is to try them Stand up! It´s not always the easiest way and sometimes there are a few sketchy moments, but it´s funny and I think it´s important to learn how to handle these situations to improve your skills and get on a higher level! ~ Nussi

The guys over at Rollbrett Salzburg are super stoked about it and so are we. Bring it on!

Easygoinc. Longboards – Downhilla

Nussi’s repping Easygoinc. Longboards, a relatively young longboard making company from Austria which has been on a rise lately. They have a solid team as well. Beside Nussi, Jan Winkler, Mirko Paoloni and Michael Joschenak are there to help them develop, shred and spread the stoke.

Responsible for the production and marketing, Ali, David and Martin started with the idea of building longboards in 2012. “The three free spirits”, as they like to call them self, are dedicated to deliver a high-quality longboards with attention to details at affordable prices.

They’re using some kind of basalt fabric of volcanic origin in their boards to deliver even better strength than with a conventional fibreglass while still providing a desired amount of flexibility. Don’t know what kind of sorcery that is, but it must be working as so far everyone had only good stuff to say about their longboards.

Nussi’s favorite board of choice is the Easygoinc. Downhilla a topmount board designed for speed and stability. It features a radial 8mm drop and flared wheel-wells for maximum wheel allowance and that extra foot lock we all love and need. This 92cm and 25cm wide beauty allows for 9 wheelbase options, from 67.5cm to 71.5cm.

Downhilla, the name of the board explains what it stands for, we put our best Ideas together and designed a directional shape with a smooth radial drop of 8mm. The perfect mix of a mellow concave, a twin-tip rocker and wheel flares at the right position gives your feet a unique feeling. I ride it with Bear Kodiak trucks and Boss Hawgs Wheels, in my opinion a awesome Freeride Setup! ~ Gregor “Nussi” Nussbaummüller

Of course, you can order a deck only, but if you are down for getting a complete, you’ll be happy to know that in their shop they offer Caliber or Bear trucks and Hawgs or Blood Orange wheels as well.

Check out their website for more info and some other awesome boards in their range or follow them on Facbook. There’s something for everyone.

Filming a longboard run with a car

Stick to my ass as close as possible – filming a run with a car

Recently I watched a raw run video featuring Austrian racing machine Quirin “Qui” Ilmer. The Tyrolian beef-cake is really pushing his limits to the max and is always eager to get down the road as fast as possible. Check this raw run to make sure you understand what I’m talking about.

Watching him hitting the roads in such vicious race mode makes me even more stoked about skating fast. Quirin doesn’t care if he’s racing against three other guys, when he’s on the top of the hill, it’s just a nip-and-tuck race between him and the road.

As I was wathcing the raw run video, I couldn’t overlook how damn close to Quirin the follow car was.

Did you realise how damn close to Quirin the car is as he hits the apex? That’s really close! Both the rider and the car driver are not allowed to make any mistakes in these kind of filming sessions.

This reminds me of all those SkateHouseMedia edits done by Alexander “Bad Decision” Ameen. Everybody knows him for beeing really fearless follwing down the skater as close as possible to catch some good footage.

But who’s the guy that rips down with a car like this over here in Europe? Let’s hear it from Quirin:

The filmer is called Nussi (Gregor Nussbaummüller). The wicked thing working with him is, that if you make a mistake, he knocks you over. And that’s the way it should be! The follow car has to stick to your ass as close as possible. Thats the way a raw run should be filmed these days, because then you get the best footage out of a run! ~ Quirin Ilmer

Nussi, a Salzburg (Austria) DH skater is responsible for this kind of action. As I talked to him about this later, he told me that he was putting his first car sideways all the time.

After he passed his driving license, his first car was a rear-wheel drive BMW and this kind of forced him to drift through corners, especially during winter when he was driving up to the mountains to go snowboarding. “Often I would end up in snow off the road”, said Nussi while laughing out loud.

Nowadays he still drives up to the mountains but mostly during summer. He either skates down or follows a skater with his car and a camera fixed to it as he sticks close to the skater’s ass to get the raddest footage possible.

When it comes down to filming with the car, Nussi has some strict rules.

It is very important to know who is in front of you. Every rider has an unique style and tries to transfer it to the road. Downhill bombing or some stand-up freeriding make a huge impact for filming. So mostly I like to skate a run together, to get to know the skater I am about to film. ~ Nussi

When Nussi and I got together, we decided to hit a fun and fast track somewhere close to Salzburg, to show you how he handles the car. If you pay attention closely, you will notice how he drifts “sideways” in a second corner!

When going out filming a raw run, Nussi uses a tripod car mount and a Canon DSLR for filming in high resolution and 25 frames per second.
By the way, this raw run was filmed with a VW Polo, which is “small & crispy”, just as Nussi likes a follow car to be. Still, Nussi also has a slightly passion for big old cars 😉
