So I'm studying abroad over in Austria and I'm getting ready to go on a 20 day long spring break trip, I was just wondering if any of you guys had recommendations for any of the places I'm going to, or if you're from there, if you'd wanna go skate while I'm in town.

I'll be in London, Marseilles/Aix-en-Provence, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Munich over the next 20 days, so if any of y'all wouldn't mind showing a dumb foreigner/fellow skater around I'd definitely buy you a beer or give you some other token of gratitude.

I've already been all over the shkateyou spot map, and i'll probably stop in at a local shops in each place to see what else is good, but any recommendations for bars/restaurants/touristy shit to do would also be welcome and appreciated.

Definitely check out Lichtenstein, Andorra and San Marino. Spots up the yin yang and the bitches are just waiting for that foreign sausage.

If possible you should make a stop in Denmark! Nice people and great atmosphere.

Ah damn. I was really hoping I'd open this to find someone passing through krakow to shred with.

So i was out skating with some English kids I met at the Brixton park today at some random ledge, when some dude rolled through on a zipzinger-ish board with a deck and some product. He sold me a Palace board for 20 quid, which was super fucking sick, and then once he left, my friend said "that was Olly Todd!" My friend was even riding an olly todd palace model at the time. Been traveling 3 days and already ran into a pro!

Ha yeah I reckon it's be difficult to skate London for a day and not run into a pro.
