I Love Valencia

I love skate trips, I ♥ them. Even more so, when we’re talking casual outings to sunny Spain – Valencia to be exact… I ♥ Valencia.
But not only do I do so – a bunch of French chaps also really ♥ the laid back mediterrainean vibes, the orange trees, the historic and modern architecture and the spots… the skateboarding good life!
What’s not to ♥ about it?!
Sylvain Tognelli, Joseph Biais, Vincent Coupeau and a few promising kids from Paris, Marca Barbier, Maceo Moreau and Gaetan Ducellier all ♥ the fuck out of it.
♥’ing every minute.
