The crew got together with the local riders, Mirko’s dear friends, the “putos” Santi Domingorena, Angel Diaz Cano and Juan Campuzano. Everyone were hyped to skate, but the weather was not on their side.
Usually the month of April brings 3 days of rain in average on Tenerife and the bunch was unlucky enough to hit them during their 7-day trip.
And as if the bad weather was not enough, on the first day Simon crashed badly, earning himself a nasty road rash and later on Juan got smashed as well and has suffered an ankle fracture.
The rest of the crew managed to get in a solid portion of skating and even filmed some sick runs. One of them is the one we feature in this post with Mirko.
As Mirko described, on the third day, they went to check out a road the local crew nicknamed Tuna 2.0. He wanted to skate and film the spot, but the road was wet so he decided to skip it and wait for it to dry.
The gem he wanted to skate got dry by the last day and Mirko was stoked about the chance he got to drop and film a run…a single run.
Here’s how Mirko described the road…
The road almost looks and feels like a billiard table. Fresh pavement, no bumps or cracks. The asphalt is a perfect mix between smooth and rough, it makes the wheels thane a lot. Making the stand up and leaving the huge thane lines…it’s super cool and I enjoy it very much. ~ Mirko Paoloni
If you wonder what are those wheels, Mirko is skating Cloud Ride Slusheez, a 62mm freeride wheels in 78a durometer. He’s also sponsored by Easygoinc trashing their Downhilla deck and also represents the G-form protection and Moreboards.com.
