Last day.

Just the spanish guys in the house. Was a really slow morning. We packed, clean a bit the mess we made in the house for a week and we left the house around 11am.”

 “Of course the first stop was the pizza place. We couldn’t go around the city with all of our luggage because was really heavy. So we decided just to stick to one last spot, and that was Stalin Plaza.”

GO!

GO!

Once there we talked about the tour, how fast it went… Always when you are with friends doing what you like the time goes by so fast. The whole team did a great job! Everyone did the best they could.

Prague might not be the city to get a lot of footage but for sure is a great city to come skate and have a great time.

River Sunrise.

 “As always all of the guys want more tours… You have to wait for a few weeks for the great video that CDV is gone make. Be patient my friends. Toni Alvarez, Gotthard Pilsner, Crisitan Dedeu, Thomas Kienle, David la Rotta… always a pleasure to travel with you.”

 “Gotthard left back to the hotel before the rest of the team. He drove back home to Germany. Our last dinner was some kind of typical meet on a sandwich, was really great and delicious.

Once home we packed a bit, some hanging, videos and our dear friend Thomas left around 03.00am with a taxi to the airport. The flat was a bit empty now without the 2 germany guys.

Allright, sleeping… 04.12am. Tomorrow last day of skating. Let’s roll!”

 

02/08/2014

TABLAROTTA & LAMENTABLE! The day started really slow, we went to some down town spots to warm up. Cristian went to film some lifestyle shots, some were lying on the floor having a small nap before the session…”

Good morning...

“After skating that fist ledge we got kicked out, that was so weird. The security guy called the police and the police took not so long to appear.”

“Right after that spot, we went to an area where some skaters told us to go, we walked for ages. The area was the university. Always on those kind of places you can find spots. We didn’t least long on the first spot. 5min skating and 2 min with the camera. That was enough for Toni to film a line. Mind while some were skating some were walking around looking for more spots.” team work” thats what I called.

The spot was 2 rails in a row, they seemed perfect but, was the most sketchy rails ever. HIgh, worst floor and so on… No one wanted to skate. Sergi made a great line there.

Nobody wanted to keep searching or skating at all, we were all day out. We saw a mexican restaurant on the way, we ended up there. The food was so so great. The best dinner we had on the trip for sure. Home time , 01.32am. and now is 09.01am what happened ? Long long night in the old town in Prague and ended partying on a boat in the river. LAMENTABLE!”·

At Stalin we meet a friend of Sergi. Merlyn a young kid from Barcelona that now he lives here. He was our guide for the hole day. He showed us some great spots we are gone hit in the next days.”

“With the stomach full was a bit hard to start to skate again . The stop was a 9 stair gap to warm up. Was not the most great place to start riding again….. Toni did a massive fs 360 late, ( 9.1 ) From there we went for a small walk to another spot we saw before.
One of the best ledges we skated ever. Weird plastic material, the feeling when you were grinding was so smooth. Gotthard put some extra wax , everyone was falling so bad, flying… G made the LINE! We were stoked!”

Amazing filming today, good job team!

Amazing filming today, good job team!

After such a long day skating, we were heading back to our home. Stopped at the supermarket. Bought a lot of bad stuff, candy, chocolate, and so on….. The team was to tired to go out… Stayed home chilling , watching movies, SLS… Was a great day today! 02.31 am”

Good morning... fine for everyone

Good morning… fine for everyone

1st thing on the morning, Pizza time!! Is breakfast and lunch together, god, so cheap. We are getting used to it. We jumped into the subway and whats the next thing that happen? We got ripped off, guys asking for tickets and of course we didn’t have: 30€ each. The guys made the day with us. We are sure they went out with our money. All of us we were really disappointe , actually the tickets are actually not expensive at all. We learned a lesson yesterday(from now on we are gone buy train tickets for sure.)”

toni_fine_metro_bkprague

“Ticket”

We went to the end of the yellow line, to the getho. We are wondering why we always ended up in those places, we came into a conclusion, the best spots , big stuff are there. The first spot was a flat rail , was really great to warm up. David and I went different ways to find our spots, we didn’t had any luck at all this time. Was the first time we skated all together in the trip. Everybody got a trick on the rail, was a fan session . Supermarket mission and again one of this kind of walks that you will never forget.”

We tried to wake up early and have a session before Gotthard and Toni arrived but as always was a hard mission to do that… We left the house 1.5h later that we said the night before. Of course we had breakfast in our favorite pizza place. A few slices and we were ready to roll. We had 45min till the meeting with the guys.”

29/07/2014

“A few months ago we decided our new destination for the next British Knights Tour.

And here we are, Prague!.

We got in really late last night. We couldn’t barely do anything. We meet with Thomas at our metro station, is situated in the north of the city. We ate some great sliced of pizza. Each slice costed 1€, really cheap… And you  cant take just 1 slice. Took us a while to figure out were was our apartment. Arriving at night into a new city is not the best idea.”

Good morning...

“We woke up not so early, we chilled home while was waining… tried our new shoes from the next season, new hats and put our boards together.

1st spot of the day: Stalin Plaza.  One of those place that must skate 1 time in your life. You can make such a long lines till your breath is gone. The weather wasn’t with us today. After a few hours of session the rain came to us.  We had to hide under some trees and we asked some locals for some spots. The rain was still there, we were hoping to be skate some more…. The sun came again but not for long. So we had no other choice than go to the Mystic Indoor Skatepark. Another place where you must come and skate! We skated for several hours non stop.
