dónde está la estación de tren

Crusty old skateboard nostalgia-fans are always harping on about how influential Cali pool-pioneers like Jay Adams and Stacy Peralta were, but little is said about what was going on in sunny Spain around the same. Not content with razzing around on scooters, setting fireworks off at every occasion and necking cartons of Sangria, young Spaniards were taking to the streets on homemade boards crafted out of orange crates and pioneering their own form of skating. They still wore Vans, and to be honest, the skating was the same, the tricks just had different names — the ollie became the ‘Pepe’, kickflips were called ‘kicchio flipas’ and front-side crooked grinds were named ‘dónde está la estación de tren’.
