We link up with Gustavo Ribeiro on the road this time out, as he leaves Portugal for San Sebastián in the Basque country in order to oversee his pro model for Jart Skateboards being made at the HLC factory nearby. The factory, which produces thousands of decks per day for many of your favourite skate brands, uses robotic technology- and Gustavo’s tour of the woodshop is the first ever broadcast from Europe’s largest skate hardgoods producer.
After a test session at the factory, Gustavo and Spanish team-mate Danny León mix it up on a short tour of the Basque country’s insane skate terrain, in a region which could be called Europe’s California. Along the road, the boys try the traditional Basque handball game ‘pelota mano’ on already-bruised palms, as well as sampling some of the quick eats for which the region is considered a world capital.
Join Gustavo and Danny on their exclusive tour of a European skateboard factory on their Basque tour, and join us again next week as we check out Gustavo’s dream personal indoor park with Leticia Bufoni!

Welcome to Gustavo Ribeiro's world!
