Thea Bowl

Patras has a new Bowl for riding, thanks to Elijah a local carpenter who decided to build a skate ramp just for the fun of it. When the ramp was ready, someone told him, hey, why don't you make it a bowl? So he kept on building, all by himself. So here it is the first ever Bowl around our Patras, all handmade and ready to ride!!! check FB page for more info on how to get there!

A few days ago riders from around Patras and some transition lovers from Athens, gathered together at the bowl to film the new Locals Checkin episode, check some photos...












Check also the latest LOCALS CHECKIN' episode, filmed and edited by the one and only,

Barbie's split ride!

Team rider for life and one of a kind personality Varvara Mitropoulos a.k.a. Barbie had some back-country adventures with the guys from the helveticbackcountry.ch a while agο at Vale Leventina in southern SwitzerlandAirolo region.


They went for 3 days to Rifugio Carzonera where there is no water or heating, so they carried everything for 8 people (4riders and 4 filmers) in their backpacks.


The German TV show Bayerischer Rundfunk made an episode with their 3 day trip.
Even if you dont understand anything of what they are saying, (neither do we), 
you can see the smiles on their faces 

and you can definitely enjoy the view...
This is the episode in which you can watch Barbie's hiking and riding...
and YES we are jealous Barbie.
