Bayonne – France:
A older looking city with waterways tangling throughout town, shutter windows on every building giving off a classic vibe. We didn’t get to skate anything in the down town but we did stop by Identy skate shop for a signing. It seemed like a ton of kids were stoked on the skate scene. At night Darren & I explored the downtown to shoot some photos and kick around town, I brought my bike to enjoy a cruise. Everyone was out n’ about enjoying the bars surrounding the canals. All of a sudden I heard a weird clicking noise and my back tired locked up. I looked down and the cog was stripped and the gear system was bent it. It was a wrap for the night rider for the trip.
Madrid – Spain:
We took a 4 hour drive from Bordeaux, France south to hit Madrid. We showed up to amazing skatepark with kids shredding. It was filled with everything & flowed super good, Check out the Video posted below to see some of the demo, they also posted a page with all the photos from the demo click here. Thanks Welcome skate shop for having us! This place is worth visiting again, filled with amazing food and awesome people. It seemed like we only saw 1/4 of the city, It was filled with spots.
Koln (Cologne) – Germany:
A city that got rebuilt around the 1960’s. This place is packed with people, there’s actually more people biking around then cars on the road. We stayed at a awesome Hostel / Bar that was skater owned, If you end up visiting make sure you get in touch with this guys. We had a demo on the outer skirts of town at North Brigade Skatepark, It’s was a awesome turn out, thanks for having us, it was a wicked time.
