Pre contest day was another hot day at the beach so Chris Russell took it easy and did a couple warm-up runs in the half pipe as everybody was waiting for the paint to dry in the pool. Shoeless fronside invert.
Local Alain Goikoetxea has the lines and tricks. Stalefish
Cory Juneau is on fire. He´s been ripping La Kantera with speed and style. Monty grind.
Sky Siljeg combines unique lines and tricks with speed and stlyle. Invert.
So after a little adventure with Air France that included a longer than planned stop at the world famous Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. It´s maybe not as bad as it may look but it´s pretty bad and if you can, just do yourself a favor and avoid it.
Arriving in Bilbao we were greeted with hot and sunny weather – perfect! Got the rental, checked in the bed and breakfast and made it to the La Kantera skatepark by late afternoon.
Some US pool shredders like Raven Tershy, Grant Taylor, Peter Hewitt, Raney were already at the park sessioning with Alain Goikoetxea, Danny Leon and some local rippers.
So after Mondays mellow session more and more skaters showed up on Tuesday and the sessions started to heat up and it´s gonna get better each day till the finals on Saturday.
