Exploring, searching, finding new and unusual places to skate is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and fascinating things about skateboarding. In an era where everything in skateboarding has already been done nearly anywhere you can imagine, finding new and interesting destinations is something difficult and captivating at the same time.
Elba is a fantastic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, across from Tuscany. It is a paradise where you can enjoy your vacations immersed in nature and benefit from a marvelous sea.
Not exactly the first place that comes to mind when you want to organize a skateboard tour.
The idea behind this trip was to explore the island in search of something to skate. Being a wild place, we didn’t exactly know what to expect, apart from a couple spots I had seen on vacation a few years ago. But for the most part, our trip was a complete unknown.
In reality and as usual, if you have the right attitude wherever you go you’ll always manage to find something to skate, and the feeling of traveling down the island’s curvy roads to explore tiny towns on the seaside or hidden in the backcountry excited everybody and made for 5 fantastic days.
