Name | Sebastian “Wastl” GRUBINGER
Date of birth | 24-06-1983
Hometown | I grew up in St Florian and now I’m living in Vienna, Austria.
Riding since | The age of 17.
5 riding spots | Heldenplatz Vienna, my home spot in St.Florian, the bridge spot in Linz, spots next to water, whatever it should be flat.
What got you into BMX | There was a Jam in Linz and my friends and me went there to hang out and I saw BMX and knew I want to do it !
What made you stick to it | The fun that I have when I’m on my bike, this little something that makes me feel relaxed and happy when I ride. The infinite possibilities with it. For sure good friends also made me stick on it. I guess it’s the whole thing called “BMX”.
What will make you stick to it | Probably the same things that made me stick on it until now. And I’m sure other, new things will happen that make me ride on too ! And the love for it !
What should we know about your hometown and your local riding spot(s) | Since almost 12 years my hometown is Vienna. Before I was living in St Florian which is a small town in the middle of Austria. In Vienna I usually ride at Heldenplatz, in the center of the city. In winter I ride in a shitty parking garage.
Riding alone or within a local scene | The scene is weak here at the moment, so I mostly ride alone. A few times a week I ride with Markus Redlberger, Erik Faustmann and also some other riders come by from time to time ! Both is cool – riding alone and riding with others !
Name your main video parts | Twenty – The Damage is Done, Samethingdaily 2, Heresy – The 5th of September, Viennese Reveries, Heresy – Beneath, Samethingdaily 3, Ease.
5 bands who could never leave your Ipod | I always have trouble synchronizing my ipod, so all bands leave from time to time and sometimes come back again. At the moment I mainly listen to hip hop.
Favourite local food specialty | Damn, that’s SCHNITZL – what else!!!
Travelling destinations | Well, I love to travel everywhere !
Other interests | I love to chill with my girl, play golf with my parents, do some sports and party with my brother and friends, watch football, whatever is fun !
