Carhartt WIP Skate trip to Iceland

Carhartt WIP Skate - Hringur

 

Skaters are no different to your average tourist, but just how do you plan a skate-trip to a place you’ve never been before? Easy. Instead of scouring Tripadvisor or Instagram geo-tags, you pull up Google Street View, drop some pins on spots that look skateable and pack your bags. Earlier this year, that’s exactly what Jim Craven, Henry Kingsford and the Carhartt WIP skate team did, as they traveled to Iceland, a country known for its rugged terrain and sweeping grassy landscapes, in search of concrete.
