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!

Now You Know: Wheels

Ever wanted to know why there are so many different styles of wheel and how they perform as they wear?  Well, here is something I have dug up from the vaults of longboarding knowledge.  With all of the new core designs and everything, there is even more to know about wheels than is explained here, but this will push you a step in the right direction.
