The most important cities for flamenco are Jerez de la Frontera, Seville, and Cadiz in Andalusia, Spain. All of them are really good for skating, too (good weather, interesting buildings, etc.), so the Red Bull company decided to take advantage of this synchronicity to organize a skate tour of Spain with some skaters that understand both worlds. Finding skaters that can sing, play, or dance flamenco and also rip on a skateboard is not easy. But Red Bull managed to assemble three of them for this trip to the cradle of flamenco culture.
