It’s pretty fair to assume that Iceland is on most peoples’ bucket list.
I mean, you’ve got Þingvellir, Jökulsárlón, Hallgrímskirkja, Skógafoss, Mývatn – and for those of you who don’t speak Icelandic, the classic Blue Lagoon. It’s a pretty magical land of waterfalls, black sand beaches, incredible museums and hot springs as far as the eye can see.
Not on that list? Skateboarding.
Which is why this trip was about 10 years in the making. Iceland has an impressive list of things to do and sights to see, but skateboarding doesn’t really feature anywhere on that list.
I’d always dreamed of doing a trip to Iceland, and in 2009 I spent about a week around Reykjavik on something of a scouting mission to see what there was to skate.
Turns out there was some cool stuff.
