Quiksilver teammates Bryan Fox, Austen Sweetin and Mathieu Crepel met up with their surf and skate counterparts to experience Spain for two uninhibited weeks of shred. Cruising snow, cement, and ocean, the boys definitely scored! Check out the full video above for proof!
Spain is a magical country filled with magical humans. Skate, surf, snow, art, pintxos, tapas futbol…everything is incredible. The Spanish/Basque/Catalan communities will show you nothing but kindness. Find a cheap flight, rent a van, bring all your boards, bring all your homies. Maybe even follow our route – you won’t be disappointed!
Pintxos before surf and pintxos after surf with a few more pintxos after that!
You can discover sick boardriding spots and incredible scenery where mountains meet the ocean. If you’re looking for an adventure, grab some mates, a few boards and hit the road!
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.
