During the Eurotour I realised that I broke my little finger earlier in the year during the freeride in Xert, Spain. Funny enough, it became the least of my concerns (not so surprising considering what happened in Barcelona).
So, when you are a skater who knows skaters you’re obviously now part of the extended family. It really is the warmest reception and the best local advice you can get for the area you're exploring. And you meet so many cool new people.
