On the 14th of September in the small town of Noreña in Asturias, on the north coast of Spain was the 3rd annual El Gochu Skate Contest, organized by Bacon of Household Skateboards and Valen. Skaters from around Asturias, Basque County, Cantabria and Galicia (and one guy from germany) showed up to enjoy the day skating the concrete mini ramp with two bands: La Viuda Manolete and Pripyat jamming out some punk rock tunes til late night. A fun time was had by all, and the winners won some cash, prizes from the sponsors and a trophy of a salami necklace (Noreña is famous for it’s pigs, thus the connection with the pig on the flyer, the trophies, and all the stone sculptures of swine I saw around the town).
