There’s no denying a spiritual connection between skaters in the northeastern United States and in western Europe. The seasons, the surfaces and the layouts of the cities put a lot in the middle of our Venn diagram.
And the rise of cheap, transatlantic airlines that began flying out of JFK in the 2010s only tightened our ties.

When you travel to skate, you make friends. You stay up on their edits, and having experienced a scene, you appreciate its people more.
