“Let me start this quick caption by saying thanks to my friends here in Vienna that helped me put this piece together - doing long street misisons and defeating numerous challenges along the way! And as I get another shot at saying thanks, this one goes out to everyone I met so far along my path in the skating world. I’m happy and proud to be in the spot I am right now and to showcase my skating I intent to. Big thanks to my sponsors at this point, and of course especially USD for giving me the opportunity to have my own pro skate. It’s a blessing really”.
“On the edit itself I wanted to add a touch of a game that blew me away ever since I discovered it, and the people that have played it too will appreciate the references and bits in here, even if it’s not many. Without any further comments, I hope you enjoy our big project from this summer!” - Michael Witzemann.
USD is proud to announce that Michael Witzemann joins the Pro team! “Words can hardly describe the state I’ve been in, or the emotions I’ve felt ever since I found out I would join one of the most legendary Pro Teams in Inline Skating. I keep picturing this 12 year old version of me, putting on skates at the local, hanging out with his friends and learning tricks together.
If I had ever put any goals to my skating, they would have never included a path so high up as I am right now. And even though this is an honor which can’t be matched, I try to keep that energy that has been there since I started. And that energy led me to see so many places in this world, meeting all kinds of personalities along the way and the privilege to call many of those my friends now”.
“Thank you USD for giving me the opportunity to keep pursuing my path, and having fun on this ride. I hope the people that are seeing this video (which was filmed for pretty much exactly a year now) and reading this quick thought journey can take something away from it, and maybe get inspired to follow their journey”. - Michael Witzemann.

For this video, I decided to make my way to an outer district, where you can find the (I’m assuming) longest handrail in Vienna. I skated this one in my latest video for USD Skates - but so have many others. See what the process behind a trick is! - Michael Witzemann (PLAY)
Hey what’s up everyone! tried to make a first vlog attempt, skating one of my favorite skateparks in my city. Weather made it kinda hard to really try out many things, but i’ll see this as a test run. - Michael Witzemann.
