This is my last post for our 23 day adventure through out Europe. When I picked these photos out, This is what I saw in the trip. It’s the everyday hype we experienced. Thanks to the Vox crew for making these missions amazing, all the distributions that supported us, and everyone that helped make this trip happen. Cheers to y’all an keep it going!
So it’s our last day in Germany and we all eating at this buffet talking about our plans of our next destination Amsterdam, apparently no one knows who is picking us up. We give a call to the Vox team manger back in the US to figure it all out. He gives us the news the distribution dropped our section of the tour and no one told us this, till the day before we left Germany.
Luckily a distribution in Rotterdam hooked us up big time and gave us a warehouse to sleep at (Thanks Mike, Alex & Adriaan). Mike took us around the towns and we got to meet up with a ton of locals, one of them being Tim Zom If you haven’t heard of him, check out the video below. I never heard of him till this trip and he’s the fucking man & Rips it up.
Check out Fluff Magazine, Marcel Veldman runs it, He held it down the whole time in Holland. Thanks so much for being the dude!
I also gotta give a shout out to:

2 days before the trip, I’m sitting around with Darren Miller an Cody Mcentire and were going back an forth about our trip details, I throw out “I would love to change my ticket after the trip and enjoy a week in Portugal.” These guys started cracken up… I didn’t know we were going. I’m so stoked we got a taste of a cobblestone European version of Lowell / San Francisco looking city. When you arrive in Lisboa it’s tiled stones throughout the skinny streets, trolleys are going up an down hills, colorful houses everywhere & to top it off theres a giant red bridge leaving the city. It’s a amazing place I wish we had more time.
After visiting Lisboa for a day we drove 5 hours north to a town called Viana De Casetlo. At 3am we arrived at our destination, seeing a old military ship next to us. They explain it’s a hotel inside the ship, I’m pretty stoked to hear this. George Montremo “The Photographer” went to go check out the room situation, while we’re still getting our lazy asses out of the car, I look up and read a sign “Viana Medical Center”. After some laughs about “this could be the sketchiest place to ever sleep”, George comes back to tell us theres no rooms. Everything worked out perfect seeing there was a hostel right up the road.
The next morning we grabbed some amazing coffee and went to go check out some spots, There was some amazing stuff but the businesses would kick you out instantly during the week. The local friend Ciso told us he had a bowl in the works right outta town, We were so stoked to check out a DIY spot. The photo above with the tractor driver is right when we pulled up to his house. On the other side of the wall was a 5 ft. bowl with a little corner pocket, rows of grape vines dangling down, & epic country side views. It was a amazing time, Thanks Ciso so much for the rad time and the homemade bottle of wine! So stoked we got to meet up and cruise.
I gotta give a shout to the Vox Portugal Crew for making our trip amazing!

The Contemporary Art Museum of Bordeaux, France made the worlds longest mini ramp, 160 feet long. It was amazing to charge as fast as you could & fs. 5050. It was one of the most amazing demos I’ve ever skated, Everyone was ripping it up, & the crowd was so hyped. Thanks for having us Bordeaux and everyone coming out.
