Tenerife is one of the skating jewels in the norther hemisphere, for a long time not a secret anymore, well know for many Anaconda raw runs and endless roads directly hitting the ocean.

So a great bunch of the Root Longboards gang packed their stuff last spring, manualed through the gates, hopped into a flying carcass and got shot out on the Canarias somewhere in the Atlantic in front of Morocco.

The mission was to get sunburned, drunk on Doradas, filled up with tuna, avocados and olives, roadrashed by brittle asphalt and sore legs from skating roads longer then 10 km.

All in all we got a little more than 7 days to not just get pitted, this time we tried to make a serious road movie clip part what ever thing. Äxel, mad brain of road, still insured because of bowl skating brought his hole camera equipment including a Ronin-M (steady-cam) with him, to secure perfect, not shaking frames.

So boys and girls, get some tapas, open up a beer and put it into the smallest glass you have (author’s addition: It is more than reasonable to have many small glasses as I learned last week in Austria. Small beers don’t contain alcohol, easyguys), maybe u even have a small sunburn or a small road rash and lean back and let the island vibes flow through you.

The second part of the “Eseposibele Tour” is all about mobbing down the hill, staying as close as possible and enjoying skating together with our friends and guys we met during this trip.

If you consider going to Tenerife…

Get in touch with Sliders Skate HouseMartin Diaz Yarza will provide you with the best shelter you can image on this sacred island. He will grill fish, veggies and meat you never have eaten so far and what can I say, he is one of the most “down-to-earth-dudez” I had the chance to meet. Last but not least, don’t worry about safety, the Sliders House is probably the safest place on the Island.
