Gelek Gonzalez – Letters from Friends

We’re as tired as everyone else of talking about the pandemic, but unfortunately, it’s a fact that it has brought us restrictions that changed all our lives quite a bit. Especially travel restrictions. You probably haven’t even been skating just your neighboring city the last months. Therefore, we tried to gather some folks for our latest issue who have recently caught our attention or of whom we’ve been excited to see something new for a while and sent out smoke signals around the globe to see what they have been up to lately and bring you some impressions from outside your local scene.
