City Check Athens - Alex Burston is taking to the road to discover some new places and to meet up with locals to session and have a good laugh. Good thing Alex got a new camera so he could share some of his experiences with you all.
Enjoy some of the worlds best places to skate, cruise and chill and meeting some amazing people along the way. In this first installment Alex takes us to Athens, Greece to stay for a few days/sessions at Athens bladehouse hosted by the Syeah skate family. He also catches Friday Night Skate with the local city crew.
From rooftop grind box sessions to dining-room mini-ramp fun, the Athens Blade house provided some good fun to be had. Cruises with the City skaters of Athens, zooming around the shadowy suburbs of Athens city centre, skitching cars on the GC tri frames was a blast.
A quick stop of at Latraac for some food and a half bowl session couldn’t go missed. All things executed by Alex and skaters in the edit was done at their own risk. Always have fun but always remember to be cautious and safe.
THANK YOU to Nick Kouros for letting me stay at the blade house. THANK YOU to everyone I met in Athens for all the hospitality I will definetly be back.

ラトビアのNils。イスラエルのBobi。 インラインスケートやってなかったら出会う事もなかったやろうし、3人ともスケートに全力で向き合ってるからこうやって一緒に滑れたのだと思うと奇跡やなって思いました。 インラインスケートやり続けてる人生で良かった！ Rough Google Translation: Nils Jansons from Latvia, Robert Spassov from Israel. If I hadn’t done inline skating, I wouldn’t have met, and I thought it was a miracle to think that all three of us were skating together because they were all facing skating. I’m glad I’ve been doing inline skating! - Takeshi Yasutoko.
