Independent crew hit Athens

Grim times right now for us all so never has it been more valuable to immerse yourselves in the huge swathes of free skateboarding content out there. Last month saw the Independent crew hit Athens under the aegis of Free skate mag and Shiner darkman Alan Glass to sample the innumerable spots of Greece’s beautiful capital. A spicy collaboration of some of Europe’s hottest rippers including Finnish maniac Eniz Fazliov and fellow Finn Tommi Björk, Sweden’s man of the forest Ulph Andersson, Welsh ATV/comfortably rotund gut soldier Jake Collins and Athenian local Thanos Panou has come up trumps with the clip that you’re hopefully enjoying right now.

Having been lucky enough to spend a lot of time in Athens over the last ten years I can back up what you’re about to see in the excellently crafted clip with personal experiences. The city is amazing for skateboarding. The bust factor is low. Food and drink is cheap. And, perhaps most importantly, Athenians are some of the most friendly and welcoming people in the world.
If we were not in the grip of a global pandemic, now would be the time for me to suggest that you jumped on a plane and visited Athens, pouring some of your money into their economy but alas, we’re correctly on lock down so, for now, just enjoy the fruits of the Independent crew hit Athens instead and look forwards to a time when it’s safe for us all to travel again.
With that said, when you next venture out to the supermarket – why not pick up some Greek produce and show your support for them in the only way you can at the moment?

Grab yourselves a copy of the latest Free Skate Mag too when you’re ordering from our online store, (which incidentally has a huge range of Independent product) and check out the article that accompanies this clip filled with banging Sam Ashley photos.

Stay safe. Stay indoors. Let’s get through this nightmare together.
