Music on Board vol.4 was the biggest and fullest of all!!!
It took place at Faros park, a wonderful place of Patras,next to the sea. 
A celebration of boardriding and music  with live performances from Carte Postale and Chemistry X.
You could  check,  thanks to GLOBE and SOOK board family,over 20 different bantams, cruisers, longboards and find the best one for you or just to cruise around and enjoy the place all day!!!
Over 200 people tried the boards, some for the first time and some and some just for the opportunity to try out a new shape, or board in the perfect place in Patras, for FREE.
Cactus ramps were also there, with a full on fingerskate park, bombing it with their also handmade fingerboards. Check them out!!! 
Our friends from Demadeira boards with their crew, set their tent and some Handmade longboards, cruisers, skimboards, surfboards were there for everyone to check out.
The day was a hot one, but thanks to Frulite on the Go we were all powered and refreshed!
Music on Board vol.4 was a different skateboard contest. It was all about SPEED. 35 skaters of all ages and from all over Greece, battled with only one thing... TIME. 
After the first two rounds, 15 make it to the final, where they had to skate faster, but this time they had to use all obstacles in their run.

Best trick contest took place at the bank to bank ramps, where Nikos Nikolikos landed a super clean and smooth nollie bigspin taking home some POP UP and  GLOBE goodies as well.

After a long day of riding, it was finally time for some live music, 
Chemistry X and Carte Postale made this place alot more magical and trippy with their tunes, giving a perfect ending on a perfect day.
