Lites Trucks went on a journey to Georgia – a team voyage searching the roots of Lites rider Giorgi “Armani” Balkhamishvili.

Obviously, the best thing about skateboarding is to visit new places, experience their cultural difference and skate untouched spots. On almost every visit to Berlin in the past three years I was talking to my good friend and Lites-Trucks team member Giorgi Balkhamishvili how sick it would be to visit his home country of Georgia. And so it went, and the time came when we were all sitting on a four hour flight headed East, with a crew of young, talented and extra motivated rippers. The Georgian spirit was on automatically and right away we were fully into our mission!
