Since founder Sheree moved to surf the waves at Fistral and me having stepped away to concentrate on the magazine, our good friend Carley Barton, team rider at Smile Longboards, is now at the helm of Brighton Longboard Ladies and, together with the other team riders and myself sponsoring as Thrill Magazine, this year’s Battle
Thrill Magazine has come on board amongst a whole realm of sponsors in support of So… You Can Longboard Dance? World Cup 2018 event in Eindhoven on April 21/22nd. Bianca Kersten, the brains behind this incredible event, gives us an insight into the history, preparation and future focus of the event.
It was another astonishingly hot day for this year’s Battle of the Boards hosted by Brighton Longboard Ladies and Smile Longboards.

All your voting and support paid off! Joe has managed to get through to the last ten people in his category for 'Endurance' int he Jack Wills Extrodinary Young Brits competition. If he is successful he will be able to fund UK longboarding events and subsidise logistical costs for UK riders who are seeking to develop their longboarding skills through travel and adveture. Fingers crossed!
Joe is running for a competition for young sportspeople in Britain that is run by Jack Wills. If he gets enough votes he will progress to the final round of judging and potentially win a hefty £5000 prize, of which he will be redistributing £3500 into the UK longboarding community. He needs your help!
