Having three of the top skaters travel over 5,000 miles to spend just 72 hours in Avilés (Asturias, Spain) can only happen for a unique opportunity: to be able to skate exclusively, and for the first time, a wind turbine factory.

Standing at almost 400-feet tall and 26-feet wide, these giants are the perfect playground for any skater. Danny León is a regular visitor of this “Natural Paradise” (Principality of Asturias’ claim), which is 300 miles north of his hometown in Madrid. “I have always paid attention to these giant structures and thought about how amazing it would be to skate them”, he commented.

As it is commonly said “if you can dream it, you can do it”. Finally, the doors at the Daniel Alonso Group (to which Dacero and Windar Renovables factories belong) opened and after some months of work the project became a reality. But why would he do it alone when he could invite Ryan Sheckler, Alex Sorgente and Zion Wright to join?

The four of them flew over to the heart of Asturias, where this turbine manufacturer, one of the biggest in the world, is hidden. Throughout the course of a couple days, they managed to skate the steel throughout its stages of development from pallets to turbines. “In skating the steel pallets’ we have basically built our own skate park. We were like little kids in a candy shop”, stated Sheckler.

Once the steel is curved, the scenery steps into a new dimension, similar to their usual half pipes. In one of the factories’, the skaters explored the 45 tons of steel kept in the factory, which will make the wind turbines that create energy for the rest of the world.

To finish off their adventure, they headed to Valliniello Quay (Port of Avilés). “The port’s pipes were amazing. It is crazy how they cut it out and made it so that we could skate them”, stated Zion.
