"For us, being a “Boardrider" gives us somewhere to go and something to do when we get there...And, best of all, it opens up doors around the world. Unlike anything else, boardriding has a way of breaking down barriers, and that’s what Radical Times is about. We want to inspire people to chase fun around the globe and we want to empower them with the information they need to do it. The kind of information that after you watch it, read it, listen to it...makes you want to stop what you are doing and book a flight to the other side of the world."


We wanted to experience Spain. Like, really experience Spain, in all of its mysterious, lispy glory. So with the help of longtime Quiksilver skater and Spanish local Javier Mendizabal,

We planned a trip. Then we rallied a crew - Snowboarders: Bryan Fox, Austen Sweetin and Mat Crepel, Surfers: Mikey February & Natxo Gonzalez, and Skater: Zack Miller. then we went.

From post-surf pintxos in San Sebastian to sleepless nights spent in the streets of Barcelona, everything was better than we could have imagined.

It was cultural, chaotic and everything in between. And it was all motivated by a passion for boardriding. We spent two weeks there and you can join us on our journey in the clip above. Below, dig through our Boardrider’s Guide to trace some of our steps and start planning your own Radical Time in Spain.
