There was a lot of hype for our Barcelona trip video (Was meant to be called the Birth of Barcelona in honor of the legendary Death of Barcelona video from Grime / Zontrac) back when we took this trip in 2016. The question everybody has been dying to have answered: what happened to the video? To keep it brief, the trip organizer and filmer decided to hold on to the project and footage because it “wouldn’t be worth putting out”. Luckily though, I managed to take a lot of second angles and b roll from my camera along with Jackson being kind enough to lend me some of his footage. Thus, the Raw edit was born! This at least lets us share some of the fun times and cool tricks that went down during our 2016 trip (tons of more tricks happened though that aren’t included in this edit). To give some context for myself: this was my first time on a bike since my El Toro accident. My foot was nowhere near ready to ride but we booked the trip before that accident happened, so I went anyways. So my skills weren’t very sharp and my foot was delicate whenever i landed on it. Either way though, I still had a blast with these dudes and I reeeaally hope I can go back soon. Enjoy!
Pedro was kind enough to shoot over the photos Duarte shot while we were out in Barcelona a couple years ago. Still waiting for that footage to drop. 😦 Great photos by Duarte though! Makes me wanna go back.
Pedro Oliveira is becoming a staple in the FGFS community, producing consistent content and progressing at a crazy fast rate. This video is so refreshing to watch. So many progressive grind combos all while keeping it buttery smooth! Don’t miss this one, ender was huge!
Pedro, Nelson, and Ritchie shredding Portugal! Everyone looking real dialed and smooth. Love seeing dudes get together and shred, definitely a motivator for me to go out and link up with the homies and ride. Unfortunately Nelson got hurt on the first day, which is a bummer. Heal up dude!
Duarte shot this dope little skatepark edit of 24″ Portuguese shredder Pedro Oliveira. Dude really knows how to handle his bike and makes it look so smooth. The last line was so good, he held onto that feeble for dear life!
