Things kick off at the incredible Mechelen DIY – which you don’t see much of here due to shit weather but trust us, the DIY which gave birth to Belgium’s Concrete Dreams skatepark building company is 100% a must visit type of spot. A couple of concrete gems in Cologne are hit before a mission to a number of Lilliputian fullpipes, none of which look particularly skateable. Luckily the Mr Wilson DIY bowl in Kassel looks like it more than makes up for any ‘not quite Mount Baldy’ disappointments…
If you’ve been watching these edits and haven’t at least idly started mapping out a route across the continent yet then you probably want to have your head examined – these lo fi edits are pure skate rat, gypsy tour hype at its finest! Peep the rest below if you’ve watched the latest installment and want more.
