Wild Skate : LDP Brighton to Haslemere

When this video dropped into our mail box we decided it would be cool to create a Wild Skate series covering long distance pushing adventures by UK riders here in Britain and abroad. Alasdair and Tom journey across the South Downs – one of the UK’s more obscure but incredible national parks – in a 3 day epic longboarding adventure,  carrying all they need on their backs and pushing as their own means of travel; safe to say, it did not disappoint!

Streetluge @ World Skate Games 2019

Featuring this edit from the Streetluge category at this year’s World Skate Games in Barcelona. Especially love seeing Loreline Pastor (Fr) and Elchje Minnie (Bel) commenting on the need for a women’s category, which we understand is well on it’s way to happening – at least with the IDF (International Downhill Federation). We look forward to sharing more from both the women and men who take things lying down 🙂
