The SektorF Skatefest 2017

SektorF Skatefest ’17

For those of you who don’t know SektorF, here’s the short briefing – it’s a longboard crew from the Bavarian forest in Germany which promotes longboarding in their region via skate classes, outlaws and community driven events.

We already covered their activities in our SektorF skating article which you can check out later, but the highlight of this one is their 2017 SektorF Skatefest.

The SektorF Skatefest

Every year the crew comes together and organises a fun two day event at their local tow lift close to the Czech border. This year will be no different. From August 12th to 13th, everybody who likes skateboarding is welcome to join their activities.

The event promises endless loops, a portable pumptrack and a flowy fun track. Here’s what they have to say about it:

The short, but fun track will get spiced up with DIY banked turns and obstacles. There will be many side events during the days like fun races and raffle game with lots of goodies to win. And at night there will be a party with sound system and DJ of course.

Furthermore, the event also offers workshops for beginners and advanced skaters, a beginner’s course with Richie B. Enzmann and a floodlight.

Here’s the official recap to give you a short glimpse of what’s yet to come.

SektorF skating – Give back to the community and spread the stoke

If you’ve ever been a participant at a longboard event, especially a freeride, then you had the pleasure of enjoying some quality time with likeminded people with the same passion for our beloved sport. But why do so only on organised events, when you can do it on a day to day basis?

Meet the SektorF Skating Crew

A crew from the Bavarian forest in Germany, SektorF Skating are setting a good example for everybody in our community by promoting and growing the sport in their region. Although the scene there is quite small and involve mostly young people, that doesn’t kill their stoke.

Markus Penzkofer, Christoph Lipp, Julia Morgenstern, Richard Enzmann, Lukas Nürnberger, Philipp Hastreiter, Stefan Hari John, Moritz Wein and Nikolas Raith.

Their recent adventures involved bringing back a small skate park to their hometown, organising three skate festivals on their local tow lift and an outlaw race.

As that is only the beginning, they also plan on doing skate courses and an outlaw series, similar to the one in Freiburg, this autumn. If everything goes as planned, their agenda for the nearest future involves also a proper race next year or in the years to come.

Check out their latest video with Christoph Lipp, German junior champion for 2015 and team rider for Talwärts Boardshop Zwiesel, G.O.D. and Icone.

We have to give some major kudos to the crew as they are really doing something they love and spread the stoke amongst other skaters or skaters to be. Their mentality is that everybody can do it, so they do it too in their region.

The fact: SektorF skating crew got their name by a former military reconnaissance complex, used during the cold war on the mountain called “Hohenbogen”.

If you wish to get to know them a little better, then visit their Facebook page, give them a like and be on the lookout for their next adventure. Also check out their videos on Vimeo, pics on Instagram and get stoked!
