Athens was, as put in the words of our beloved Quinn Dog Millionaire, “Breathtaking.” It’s a city teeming with historic sites, sculptures and awe inspiring views. With ancient temples like the Acropolis perched on top of hills in the middle of the city, and crystal blue waters breaking on its shores, theres no doubt why it remains a major tourist destination. We however, were not there for such distractions.
We were on a mission… a mission from god… the Bl8 God that is.

Ever made 8 cops cross 6 lanes of highway overpass to tell you to stop skating? The best part about it is they’re so scared to get hit by a car, you get about 5 extra minutes to lace your trick.
It’s not that we don’t respect history and architecture, nor do we neglect the notion that it was the national library of one of the most influential civilizations to date, it’s just that who in their right mind can pass up the opportunity to soul grind a perfect 30 stair curved down ledge?
It’s recommended that you take the ferry from the port of Rafina to the island of Andros. You will be blessed by the most amazing skate hostel, equipped with an unparalleled snake run, bowl, ping pong, billiards, and a full bar — heaven on earth.
There are three words you’ll need to know for your trip to greece: Kalimera, Souvlaki, and Malaka. These three magical words will grant you the power to engage in conversations, eat the best of foods, and, of course, curse like a local.
