We really enjoyed this peek into skating in Iran where the first skateboarder and manufacturer, 27 year old, Mohammad Javad Rahimi, invited VisualTraveling and a bunch of pros including Laurence Keefe, Michael Mackrodt, Kenny Reed, Tobias Ulbrich, MJ Rahimi, Gosha Konyshev, Walker Ryan, Phil Zwijsen and Denny Pham to come and try out the streets of downtown Tehran.  From Patrik Wallner and Thrasher Magazine enjoy this journey to the other side of the world where “Down with America” is a billboard hovering over the freeway and metal skateboards exist. Don’t be discouraged, Wallner also takes us along the Eurasian peninsula to the country of Georgia and Turkey. ENJOY!
