Jeff Dalnas and Billy O’Neill are the first to arrive in Barcelona and despite no sleep on the plane and jet lag they show professionalism and drive and churn out clips right from the GO, with Matty Watky documenting on film and Adam Kola shooting the proof they were here.
Great weather and great spirits, we are only still in Barcelona because Ben Schwab’s flight was cancelled and he has been stuck in limbo for two days, but at last we are all here now and today we set off to Montipelli as Matty Watky says, or Montpellier as the rest of us know it.
Enjoy this edit Matty spent his night putting together. All this was filmed in a couple of hours or less!

While SoFlo’s own Jon Fromm was out touring the world, Justin Finley & George Holmquist randomly got a call from Mr. Fromm that he would be in one location for more then a week. Just so happens the call came 3 days before Jon would be flying into Barcelona.
This wouldn’t be a problem if both George & Justin had passports. Which is where the adventure started. If you didn’t know already getting a passport in 3 days can be a very difficult. We ended up having to have the passport delivered to the airport terminal 15 mins before our flight.
7 days, 3 clubs, 88 packy beers, 2 bottles of rum, 2 hotels, 3 sleepless nights, 2 sunsets, 5 beautiful Italian women, 22 kabobs and a Bouncer who wanted to beat up Jon Fromm for stating in a drunken slur that the US dollar is the greatest currency in the world. This is what we came up with.
We are not pro skaters nor do we try to be. We just love rollerblading and the adventures and friends it provides along the way. Hope you enjoy! – Sofloroll.com.

The Ground Control team spent 7 days in Barcelona earlier this year. We initially planned to only shoot one production while there but as our rider count grew to 10+ people we quickly realized that was far too many people to get shit done in a place like Barcelona of all places.
Therefore, we decided to shoot two productions instead of just one. Each morning, we split the riders into two groups and they each went out to shoot with two different film groups. It was quite the task but was pretty rad at the same time.
Two different styles of filmers and always a different group of bladers to shred with and vibe off of was a cool experience for sure. The next day we alternated the groups. As many of you know or have seen, Jonas Hansson blessed us with his visionary talents for the first edit. We could not be more stoked on how it turned out.
Who would have thought that the footage was only from 3-4 days of each rider? Although it was hectic at times, we made it happen and the TEAM came through! Shredding during the day (all 7 days that is) and living the Barcelona life at night. Great times were had and a big thanks to the GC crew and all that helped us along our week adventure.
