Ever since I saw 1985’s National Lampoon’s European Vacation, it would be a lifelong goal of mine to go to Europe. I mean, who wouldn’t want to partake in the adventures the Griswolds showcased for us. Especially a little 6-year-old kid such as myself that was totally into nudie magazines. Europe looks like it had it all. Well it is now almost 30 years later and I still have not gone to Europe. The closest thing I have is my trip to Vancouver Canada with my parents and my little brother. And I have gone to Solvang, which is about 3 hours up north from Los Angeles. I guess I also have the tour videos of some of my favorite skate teams to live vicariously through.
This brand spankin new DC Riot Tour In Europe video features Chris Cole, Mikey Taylor, Josh Kalis, Nick Dompierre, Matt Miller, Evan Smith, Wes Kremer, and Davis Torgerson from demos and signings in Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Cologne, Helsinki and Malmo. Let’s see if their European tour can top the Griswolds. According to the above photos showing Chris Cole holding onto a rugged stallion in sandals, I’m sure they did.
