Please vote for our D.I.Y. Project, as we’re trying to raise some money to build this spot in Spring ‘13. This contest for 3000€ could be a big step, thanks for supporting us by giving your vote:

After Cologne’s world-famous marble paradise underenath the “Dom” has been skatestopped five years ago, we found ourselves a home in a former streethockey court not too far from the center. Now the city council officially handed over the rights to that place to our club “Dom Skateboarding e.V.”, we founded back in 2007 and we’re free to build anything on there.

Behind the link there’s a video explaining what we’ve done so far (building Kap686plaza and two other skateparks in Cologne) and you can see the actual spot in the video – unfortunately all talking is german!

This is a first rough sketch of what we’re aiming for below, it will be a little more playful in the end, but this would be the first step:

Celebrating the first anniversary of our Kap686-Skateplaza in Cologne we decided to hold a team skate contest, inviting all the best german teams to battle head to head in 3 minute street runs. 30 teams were competing, from Vans to Nike SB to Converse to Radio Skateboards to all the local brands and shops – it was quite an impressive lineup of skaters.
