Richard Tury (SK)
Slovak professional skateboarder and the only Central European aspirant to participate in the Olympics in 2021. Born in Košice, Slovakia in 1993, he started skateboarding in 2000. In 2018 he became the winner of prestigious GrandPrix Beroun and in 2019 he became the winner of the Fise World series, including the 5-time Slovak Champion and three-time Czech champion. Rišo is nicknamed a "skate machine" in the whole skatetripping group and he has to stand on his skateboard literally 7 times a week. Unlike the others, Rišo is the one who is looking for skate spots, skate parks and riding opportunities in all locations during the filming, and we owe it to him for increasing the ratio of skateboarding to experience throughout the show.
