Nixon presents HAPPY F*KNG TRIP - Sicily

Nixon is proud to present another sweet escape of its skateboarding team, following the great success of the first edition of the “Happy F*KNG Trip” last year.

Once more, 6 Nixon’s European riders took off to hit the road together – the destination was no other that the beautiful island of Sicily deep down south in the Italian peninsula.

Consisting of the usual suspects Alain Goikoetxea, JB Gillet, Alex Mizurov, Antony Lopez and Javier Sarmiento, joined by the HFT German rookie Denny Pham, the group found out quickly that Sicily has got much more to offer than “just” a stunning landscape and fantastic pizzas. In between the Volcano of Etna and picturesque beaches, they found what can be described as the El Dorado of any skateboarder: an uncountable variety of unexplored street spots, friendly locals, quite indifferent policemen and plenty of possibilities to test the newest technical trickery. Topped off with a summer that never seems to end, this mission meant nothing but good times.

Big shoot out to our local friend Mauro for showing us his local spots!
