It’s with heavy hearts that we report on this morning’s passing of former pro Ray Underhill. A Bones Brigadier who went on to do great work with Eastern Skateboard Supply, he’ll be missed by many friends in the skateboard community.
The heat was blazing down south in Valencia and we were greeted by an epic paella meal on the beach. Afterwards we watched the locals and Tony Trujillo heat up the park while Meronek was our beer slave. Then a night cap in the hills for some bands and some Bad Shit. Viva Espana!
Made it back to Barcelona, and the only way to beat the heat was to head up on the hill with some locals, Tony Trujillo, Ashley, Noro, and Jake. Tony skated the whole place while we cooled off with some Estrellas.
Right after the action-packed finals was a 30 minute best trick contest on the rainbow ledge and the hubbas. Robbin Oost, Tim Zom, Madars Apse, Xico Basabe, Bas Janssen, Yannick Schall, Woody Hoogendyk, and Ruben Rodrigues made some magic happen. Cheers, Amsterdam, for another great time!
