Lookback Longboards began its journey over 2 years ago in Southsea, Portsmouth and was founded by Jacob Kennard and Xavier Stow, with camera and editing support from Jethro Large and Will Brewster.
Here are some pics of Plymouth and Thailand
Originally set up in Portsmouth, Lookback Longboards have branched out to the South West of England with some crew members residing in Plymouth. They are big fans of longboard freestyle and try to skate in locations far and wide, from the UK to Barcelona to South East Asia.
Lookback Longboards been skating for the past 8 years or so, starting with downhill but eventually finding a love for longboarding freestyle and dancing and plan to run freestyle events this year in the UK so keep an eye on their social media to be a part of it!
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!

Featuring this edit from the Streetluge category at this year’s World Skate Games in Barcelona.

We look forward to sharing more from both the women and men who take things lying down 🙂
