QUIZ: HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW EUROPEAN SKATE HISTORY?
There's almost nothing as stupid and pointless as an Internet quiz. We're well aware. But in this heavy time when life could be taken more seriously than ever, we decided to just say fuck it and succumb to the most innocuous of internet poisons. American skateboarders can probably recognize Europe's cities by their skate spots (Barcelona = marble, London = busted sidewalks, Berlin = rave warehouses), and that's about all they know of the continent's culture. But since the stock price of European skaters is hitting an all-time high these days, we decided to dig through our collective Euro skate knowledge and come up with a quiz for you to test your EU IQ.

Mate. I rode Dutch and Belgian brands you have never heard of. Tell me Sven Aerts history, and I’ll think you have any legit connection to Europe underground.

Sven who? I’m sure you mean Kilchenmann. Nobody cares of local heroes from your sububs in Antwerpen.
