Judging by how the Quicksilver team shreds at every board-riding activity, we ask this corny question: Are they just the friends from Rocket Power all grown up?
We wanted to experience Spain. Like, really experience Spain, in all of its mysterious, lispy glory. So with the help of long time team rider and local skater Javier Mendizabal, we planned a trip. Then we rallied a crew – Snowboarders Bryan Fox, Austen Sweetin and Mathieu Crepel. Surfers; Mikey February and Natxo Gonzalez and skater Zach Miller. And then we went.
From post-surf pintxos in San Sebastian to sleepless nights spent in the streets of Barcelona, everything was better than we could have imagined.
It was cultural, chaotic and everything in between. And it was all motivated by a passion for boardriding. We spent two weeks there and you can join us on our journey in the clip below. Once the credits have rolled, dig through our Boardrider’s travel Guide and trace some of our steps, then start planning your own Radical Time in Spain.
