Our review of the skateboarding scene in the Bulgarian capital Sofia took almost three years to complete and contains great promotional plugs for several small local businesses including Contrabanda skate shop, Grindhouse skate club, 5-High Skatepark and Sofia Hardcore Tattoos.

Watch the feature via The Berrics here, as featured in Spain here or as featured in France right here!
