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. 

 

Longboarding Camps for Women

Are you female? Do you ride longboards? Do you want to skate with other women in a closed-road environment? Do you want to progress your skills and have an awesome time riding with amazing new people? Well, www.womenlongboardcamp.com have just the thing for you!!

Here is a message they sent us about the services that they offer.

The board sports enthusiasts at WLC have carved out a niche organising events specifically for women. Last year saw the first event of this kind, a five-day longboarding event in sunny Slovenia, dedicated to the practice of skateboarding, from downhill to sliding to dancing. The camp was a tremendous success and sparked interest all around the world– a sign that there’s plenty of women keen to get on board out there. The WLC crew aim to create a relaxed, non-competitive and non-judgemental atmosphere, giving participants the opportunity to explore their limits in a safe environment under experienced, hands-on guidance. The complete package caters for  anybody from total beginner to the more seasoned rider and includes a daily yoga practice to round off a well-designed event schedule. Due to high demand, two camps will take place in 2013, this time in the beautiful surroundings of Alsace, France. The events will take place from May 12-17 and May 19-24 respectively. For further information and to sign up, please visit www.womenlongboardcamp.com

Pick of the Day – Whistler 2012

WHISTLER DOWNHILL!!!!

This track looks intensely fun to race on, with cheeky kinks and plenty of overtaking room. Holding a fast line is the key to success on this course.

The images captured by the cable-mounted video camera on this track are unparalleled in capturing every moment of a race. I love this hill, I love the filming style and I love the downhill action. Watch this, get stoked!

 

Orangatang: The New Moronga Wheel

Set for release in Feburary 2013, Orangatang have once again released a new freeride wheel: The MORONGA!

This one comes with a narrow contact patch to reduce speed loss through slides and the tried and tested Otang ‘thane formula so you know that they will be nice and buttery!

Liam Morgan Shreds Caliber Truck Promo

You probably saw this earlier and, like me, did a little bit of wee. Liam Morgan totally shreds in this promo edit for Caliber Trucks. Now you all watch this while I check Virgin Airlines for the cost of flights to San Francisco.  Who’s with me?  I’ll see if I can get a group discount and just check we can take our boards as carry-ons……
