Rom Boys – 40 Years of Rad – The Movie

Being part of the skate community means a helluva lot. Those who were part of that community as youngsters are now part of the history, looking back to wonderous memories whilst those who, like myself, joined in later years, can only look back and wonder at those very skaters. The future belongs to us all, so whilst our memories are in waiting, let’s take some inspiration from the past as captured by this incredible project.

Have you heard of Longboard Mapp?

How did Longboard Mapp come into reality? Where did it start? What is it all about? It's free!?!

 

-We did it. The final result is an extremely modern app, users are satisfied with design and simplicity of using the app, and they are impatiently waiting for new features and new versions – says Miloš.

They made a mobile app that longboarders really need, and the number of 7.000 downloads in less than six months is a proof. With this app they wanted to inspire longboarders to ride their boards more often and to explore world around them. So, if you download the app and realize that there are no routes in your city, don’t be disappointed, be the first one to record the routes in your area.

-From the user’s point of view, I was happy that I will finally have a platform which I can use when riding, and from the designers point of view, I was intrigued by the challenge of creating the visual part of the whole story. I think that the users see and appreciate our efforts, and you can tell that by the number of downloads and feedback that we get on daily basis – says Jovan,  Head of Design.

Adrenalyn Mapp is more than just a group of people that makes mobile apps, they are active members of a longboard community, and they want to help the development of the sport and to connect with longboarders around the world, organize events etc.  They also have in mind some awesome features which will keep users of Longboard Mapp engaged, and the best way to stay in touch with all the news is to follow them on Facebook, Twitter or their website

As a startup company they are searching for investments, so they can fully dedicate themselves to this app. If you like the idea, you can support them on Patreon.
