Eastern Europe isn’t always the first place on someone’s travel itinerary. Major conflict in the 90s during the Yugoslav Wars gave the Balkans a rough reputation. Abandoned ruins from the war have opened up interesting places to skate, like the 1984 Sarajevo Olympic Bobsled track. But when you look past the war torn buildings you’ll see beautiful landscapes, optimistic people, and a region that has bounced back from a dark past. Next door is Romania! Not long ago it was locked off from the rest of Europe. Throw in a revolution at the end of the 80’s and you’ll find a country with rich culture and people full of pride for their home. Large mountains ranges with some of the most amazing roads ever paved, it’s no wonder that the scene in Romania is blowing up!

Born in Vancouver, Les has been backpacking and adventuring around the globe most of his life. Skateboarding made it easier to get around, eventually leading to a long trek skate adventure across Kenya. With a new appreciation for skateboards and some good connections, Les dropped everything to make skateboarding his life and, as they say, it's all been downhill since. Now Editor at Skate[Slate] and one of the owners of Flatspot Longboards, Les spends the rest of his time raising his first kid, plugged into the skate-web, and skating with Coast Longboarding.
