Do you ever think about past skate trips and remember all the good times and the steep roads you’ve skated? Well time sure flies and it’s been almost over three years since we dropped out Steep Throat trip video featuring Simon Lechner, Mariano Conti, Eugenio D’Alò and me, Mirko Paoloni.
We had so much fun on the island that we couldn’t resist going back a second time after a year.
Endless roads with super smooth pavement and unique turns were surrounded by amazing landscapes that made every run we had unforgettable.
Although skating and generally having fun was our main interest, we also found some time to stack some clips and create new awesome shots that never saw the light of day.
Now two years later, Simon Lechner decided to make a small recap of our trip out of those shots. The footage may be considered old now, but there are some shots that just needed to be shown.
For the trip Simon chose his top mount the Javelin by Sector 9 paired with Gullwing Reverse trucks. And although the Island’s pavement offers smooth slides with almost every wheel, he chose to go sideways even smoother with RAD Glide 82a and Advantage 80a wheels.
What made the whole trip even better was the fact that we were travelling with a professional photographer Felix Pirker, who made us look good in every shot he took. Besides that, he also shuttled tons of runs!
Check out the video and enjoy the Island vibes with us!
