Nixon team finds Skater’s Paradise in Bella Italia
Nixon is proud to present another sweet escape of its skateboarding team, following the great success of the first edition of the “Happy F*KNG Trip” last year.
Once more, 6 skaters of Nixon’s European team took off to hit the road(s) together – the destination was no other that the beautiful Island of Sicily deep down south in the Italian peninsula. Consisting of the usual suspects Alain Goikoetxea, JB Gillet, Alex Mizurov, Antony Lopez and Javier Sarmiento, joined by the talented HFT rookie Denny Pham, the group found out quickly that Sicily has got much more to offer than “just” a stunning landscape and fantastic pizza. In between the Volcano of Etna and picturesque beaches, they found what can be described as the El Dorado of any skateboarder: an uncountable variety of unexplored street spots, friendly locals, quite indifferent policemen and plenty of possibilities to test the newest technical trickery. Topped off with a summer that never seems to end, this mission meant nothing but good times.
Here’s a little web gallery with some of Kevin Métallier’s shots from the trip:
