Check out these amazing shots from a surreal Red Bull Art of Motion 2015 on the island of Santorini.
By Oliver Schran

Winning the fifth annual Red Bull Art of Motion on the picturesque Greek island of Santorini thanks to a breathtaking array of gravity-defying freerunning tricks executed over the white-washed roofs and ledges of Oia, 20-year-old local hero Dimitris Kyrsanidis had a brilliant weekend.

But the final contest result is only one part of Red Bull Art of Motion. It also represents an opportunity for the world best freerunners to meet for the Onsite-Qualifier, event training and various practice sessions. The close-knit community uses this week in Greece to gather and celebrate the sport in one of the best natural environments you can find for freerunning.

Check out our gallery from a fabulous week of freerunning in Santorini below.
