Just got back from one of my favorite places ever, Algorta outside Bilbao. Well the whole area is fantastic, Getxo, Sopelana, Leioa. Amazing skatespots, beautiful landscape, nice climate, friendly people, great surfing and then La Kantera – the greatest skatepark located on the beach in an old ruin. Just beautiful. Algortas pool has drawn people from all over the world and there isn’t many of the top pros that haven’t visited La Kantera, but it is really the old classic spanish style bowl that is what La Kantera is all about.
Me and my friends came here the first time in 2002 with our motorhome and returned every summer until we built our own concrete park here in Malmö in 2005. Anyway it was amazing to be back and here’s a few shots from a few years back.
