Mallorca trip: Part 2

As you may have read in the Part 1 of this trip write up, we zipped over to Mallorca for a Hooked trip as February is too cold in England. Have a look at some of the spots we hit and tricks we got... Callum, Jacob and myself (Dave) lurked hard.

The nice people at Shine Skateshop took us to this amazing spot...

2 benches in a line, massive stairs and hubba and a 4 set behind the camera

Jacob Bettinson front tailslides the perfect bench

Miki Juame, owner of Shine Skateshop front blunts it... he rips

Callum Moore went balls out

Then we went to this amazing block spot by the sea

All sorts of grindable material

Mallorca OG shredder Miguel Urbina going for the switch frontside flip... this dude has done more than most skaters ever will - absolutely blinding

Miki switch ollies the gap

Preparation to film

Callum makes this place look good

Miki switch bs heel the gap (footage coming in the edit)

Jacob Bettinson tre flip (footage coming soon)

Boom - tre flip without the fisheye

The guys from Shine took us to this rad place for food, and showed us lots of new spots

Callum, Jacob and Miki lurk where the streets are paved with gold

And we headed back to Shine Skateshop to wind down

Miki and his lady run the shop... stay tuned for the 3rd and final part of the trip. And the killer edit... including Miki.
