In episode 3 of BYND x MDLS 2015, Kevin Bäckström and Tor Lundström head out to Iceland for some rail grafting in the cold, hard streets of Reykjavik, Iceland.
Over the past few seasons, and with the rise in popularity of the Helgasons, Iceland has become one of the go-to places for crews looking for new street spots.
Akureyri, home of the Helgasons, definitely has it’s fair share of tried and tested spots, although the BYND x MDLS guys decided to mix it up and head to Iceland’s capital Reykjavik.
Here’s the full story from BYND x MDLS filmer Diggles:
“With no sign of snow in the forecast for Scandanavia, things were looking bleak for our December street plans.
I had been to Iceland the last two years, and had all but written it off as a destination because I felt that the Helgason’s home town of Akureyri didn’t have much more to offer.
When we heard it had snowed a three feet in the capital city of Reykjavik, I knew we had to send it.
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Halldor and Eiki for letting us use their winch the whole trip, the Barf Bags crew for showing us spots and getting the boys drunk, and the king Daniel Magnusson for coming and helping when he didn’t need to.” – Diggles
