Grab your skateboard and a couple of vintage teeshirts, place them into a bandana, a red one would be better, tie it up and hang it on a stick. Then start walking to the closer highway around and start hitchhiking..which way? Marina di Ravenna, Oasi Skatepark at Taverna Bukowski.
Slamtrick, freak out edition, will be under the hippie influence of English artist Fergadelic who gives his freaky view to the contest. Be ready to take out from your garage your vintage Renault 4 and 2 cheval and make them ready to be on the road on the 28th and the 29th of june for the freakin’coolest international skateboarding event.
