#skatecommute365

#skatecommute365 submission

“Lots of people skate to work, school, the shops, to their friends house and back again. This skating goes unnoticed and unrecognised; this project intends to address this, and bring all those little victories of skating, all those stolen moments of fun that get lost along the daily commute, back to the forefront, to celebrate them and the skaters who tirelessly do them, come rain or shine.

The goal of this project is to collect 365 skater commutes – it doesn’t matter what you do it on, as long as it fits the description “skateboard”. We’re looking for penny riders, street skaters, electric Longboards, pintail cruisers or dedicated downhillers on their precision trucks. Whoever you are, if you commute by skateboard we want your story.

365 days, 365 stories, 365 otherwise unnoticed acts of pure skating. You can’t glamorise the drizzle soaked, leaf- covered pavements, the puddles, the short sneaky pavement bombs, the ungraceful duck and weave through gridlocked traffic like you can Cali hills. There’s no shiny 4 minute glitch mob song follow run for this type of skating. It’s tough, it’s gruelling, but it’s skating, and a core part of being great on a board: fast reactions, traffic sense,the ability to hold your balance, to tolerate any surface. To not flinch at short steep janky hills, to not think twice about braving roads the same as cyclists, to racing them and winning. To finding unrideable spots and proving anything can be ridden.

This is your commute. One posted, every day for a year. And at the end, we hope to make a printed copy of the entire year. The scene is bigger than just downhill. It’s the everyday skating that holds it together at the core. Be a part of that.”

Here’s where you can submit your story about your commute – it can be a regular run to a place of work or study, the Friday night burn from home to the pub, your weekly shopping run route, whatever! Grab us a picture of you with your board, host it somewhere private (imgur has free uploads, google drive, dropbox, onedrive etc. Instagram images can be manipulated into a collage, and then linked if you want to get artsy)
Whatever your regular commute, we want to hear of those little victories of skating you have every day:

Your answer
 
 

 

 
 

The worst bits
What’s the least fun part of the journey? Is it seasonal like leaves? Is it a bit of road or a junction? Was there this one really bad time during a hurricane?

Your answer
 
 

 

 
 

The best bits
What part of your commute gives you that little buzz: is there a kerb your like to pop down, a banked driveway you carve up, a bus you skitch, a pedestrian phase on a junction that leaves the road clear for you to bomb?

Thrill Travels :: Into the Wild

Team rider Ras (BTR) organised a road trip to the Welsh outback, he was accompanied by Thrill Magazine team riders Joe and Connor, friend Vasilis and some new female blood from Sweden, Germany and Lithuania.

After rallying through twenty miles of single lane roads we checked in at the Grand Vista hotel.

Penthouse views!

The free central heating was the best part of our room service.

The unique sleeping pods the hotel had to offer were a pleasant surprise!

The hotel’s driveway was pretty awesome, we decided to stay a while and play skateboards.

Canary Finch rides the edge of traction through the first righty.

Jenny throws a speed check mid-run.

Ras BTR charging into the Colosseum of pine trees.

Canary again, gettin’ it.

When he isn’t gettin’ it, he contemplates the point of cyclists wearing aerodynamic lycra… “They ride slowly up hills and apply their brakes down the hill. It just doesn’t make sense”

When Ras BTR contemplates, he thinks of nothing but ENGORILE.

Alex has Spanish blood. Feeling cold, she donned her hoody in 25+ degree heat whilst most of us were stripping off and getting sunburned.

She also has Swedish blood, that’s why she bosses corners!

Vasilis gets some gangster lean through the righty, POW!

It can’t be a UKDH session without a bit of breakdancing!

Until next time, folks!

Thrill Spring Tour
