We recently came back from Barcelona, where has just taken place Primavera Sound festival. We got burned under the amazing sun while drinking fantastic Mojito, we went to the beach (but we were not brave enough to get into the water) and of course we have listened to very good music.
What caught our attention while we were browsing around the city is something that we personally found really cool and practical at the same time: if in London cycling is the easiest (and coolest) way to get around the city, in Barcelona is skateboarding instead.
And the city’s size and spaces seem made on purpose for this way to move around it: long and large main streets, where cars seem not really dangerous for skaters and pedestrians, flagstone parks and small squares…even Parc del Fòrum, the huge area where Primavera Sound took place, look like a vast skate park, full of ramps, speed bumps, steel rounded benches, concave walls. People enjoy it and we absolutely enjoyed Barcelona’s lifestyle, skateboards included.
Always loved skateboarding, forever love it!
The “fashion” point of view: here some nice sportswear/underground pieces that I love.
