This last summer I drove in our VW bus from Germany out to Asturias, in the North of Spain, to check out the land, the people, the ocean, the skate scene and the general lifestyle of the region to see if we want to move there in the future. On our way back through Basque Country, I couldn’t resist to stop in at one of my favorite skate spots, La Kantera.
Here is a short session at La Kantera, as well as my first visit to the Gernika bowl, which is also super fun, although much mellower than the La Kantera Bowl. If you are in the Basque region, this should be top on the list. It’s almost like every skater should make a pilgrimage to La Kantera. No, not almost… you should. The place and the people are epic. And I’ll go back there whenever I have the opportunity. – J. Hay
