Roberto Alegria - Skateboarding the canyon
About: If you drive one hour from my hometown in the Basque Country, you would be surprised to find this hidden salt desert in the middle of nowhere.
Because of the rainfalls and wind this desert has been heavily eroded and offers a lot of shapes and variations. When I told Dani Lopez about this place, he got very excited and it dawned on me that the plywoods in his dusty van could be used to prepare the floor to land a trick. It took some hours to make the spot skatable and to set the illumination.
Bio photographer: Roberto Alegria is a professional photographer specializing in action sports and portrait photography.
