Skating is not just a passion. It is also a way of life and perhaps the one that fits best with the road trip concept. Which is why we know we have to offer skate board aficionados an itinerary they can relate to. We have therefore put together a route with some twenty stopping places and the same number of skate parks to try out until you have perfected your very best tricks.
