Skate Spots: The DC Embassy

After creating the biggest skateramp under the supervision of the living leyend Danny Way, and constructing the first and largest Skate Plaza, the DC Shoes company did it again, and provided to the European riders one of the cleanest skate training facilities, The DC Embassy. This"Embassy" is located on Barcelona, and it has been visited by riders from all over the globe. Bacerlona is considered as the "Meca" of the sport, so for that reason, the international shoes company decided to invade the country and settle down for once on the old continent. The outcomes of this facility can be already seen, in fact some of the finalist of the nowadays popular Street League were strictly trained on this park.

Bastien Salabanzi, one of the biggest European skateboarders out there, is part of the selection of riders that represents the brand on Barcelona and at rest of the continent as well. Salabanzi trains at the Embassy as much as he could, and the results are visible to all the skateboarding community. This fact let us think in one aspect that may be affecting skaters from the rest of the world, especially ones who belong to poorer regions. The question is, does these kind of facilities, such as the "DC Embassy", improves directly the level of pro skaters? The answer is definitely yes. For this reason, "embassies" must be constructed in different parts of the world, making the progression of the sport a little bit more fair and democratic.

These are the facilities, the dream of any skater, the pleasure of just a little group, am I right?

Check out the latest video of the Embassy, with their special guests, the Razis brothers, Enjoy!
