A team manager for Bacon Skateboards, familiar with Hunger Skateparks via the Homewoods Bowl, moved to Northern Denmark to work in the wind turbine industry. He became involved with Roundwall Development a local skatepark advocacy group and encouraged the relationship between the town of Skorping and Hunger Skateparks. In 2012, Hunger Skateparks built a bowl and moveable street features at the community center Ungdomshusets Venner. The left hand kidney was the first bowl built and designed specifically by regional skateboarders in this area of Denmark.
The Bro Bowl project was so successful, the community brought Hunger back to build a bigger park for the local school but open to the public after school hours. The new 4,000+ sq. ft. Skorping Skatepark features a large flow area, a curved kong wall with volcano, green ‘fire cracker’ coping, multiple pockets with varying transitions and heights, plus a street section with skateable rocks and a tile mosaic. Because of the successful collaboration between the community and Hunger, a town of 3,500 people have two dynamic and diverse skateparks. Every summer the town fills with skateboarders from all over Scandinavia to skate in Bowl Days and Skate Tours.
