The Quiksilver team wanted to experience Spain. Like, really experience Spain, in all of its mysterious, lispy glory. So with the help of longtime Quiksilver skater and Spanish local Javier Mendizabal, they planned a trip.
After rallying a tight crew - snowboarders Bryan Fox, Austen Sweetin and Mat Crepel; surfers Mikey February and Natxo Gonzalez; skater Zack Miller - they took off for Espana. Why Spain? Because besides tapas, wine, and some bull-fighting there's also powder, pointbreaks and a plethora of concrete that simply needs to be skated. In other words, there’s a lot going on here.
From post-surf pintxos in San Sebastian to sleepless nights spent in the streets of Barcelona, everything was better than they could have imagined. Seem like the trip was cultural, chaotic and everything in between, and was all motivated by a passion for boardriding. The team spent two weeks there which you can get a good taste of from the new video below.
