Vans – ‘Radio Bosforo’

Vans – ‘Radio Bosforo’
Salad Days

“What’s the best part of skateboarding life? I think that most of us will answer: landing a new trick. I agree with this one, but what’s the second reason why we love skateboarding? It’s traveling!

Going on tour, discovering new spots – especially if you don’t know much about the city that you are going to. In this case, Istanbul was a question mark for all of us. To my eyes, the city with over 15 million inhabitants on two continents is an Oriental version of NYC. Maybe the expression “melting pot” was invented there. Eleven skaters squeezed in a van for nine people, five days in the traffic jam in between beautiful spots. We crossed the bridge from the European to the Asian side a bunch of times. The sound system in the van didn’t work properly, we were only able to listen to the radio. We listened to American music, European artists, and of course local ones. It depended on which radio station or side of the city we were in, but our favorite selection came out of our portable speakers. That’s the reason why we thought about starting our own radio station: Radio Bosforo.” Directed by Alberto Chimenti Dezani
