Check it.

Does anyone here enjoy longboarding/downhill? I just picked it up a few days ago and I'm loving it.

Comments?

This contest may have some flaws, as people can simply be a deuschbag over the internet. By Lying.

A war-like setting/invitational would be better...

I LOVE doing this! It hurts so bad if you fall off. I also rent dirtboards. Now that is insane!

Or you could ditch the board, cover yourself with wheels, and then not have to worry about falling down.


And as a side benefit be able to reach 70mph

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

I've never bombed a hill, but I've got a Sector9 34 or 36', and it's a beauty. But I prefer skating with a... I don't know what to call it, a regular deck?

Hey King of B, Long boarding is a sweet ride, carving through the turns or pointing it downhill and letting it go are all kind feelings. A great way to score a nice set-up is to find an old water ski ( play it again or garage sales ) strip it down and glue some non-skid down. What cash you save on not having to drop on a deck you can put into trucks wheels and bearings. Now that I’m getting a little older and haven’t built the half pipe in the backyard yet for the little grommets. We ride long shredding it up in the new urban sprawl that seems to be going up everywhere. Fresh blacktop and no traffic is a dreamland. Hey brother try to wear a helmet and at least gloves so iffin ( its not if its when ) you have to bail you have some pro.

C.S. That guy in the vids is whacked. Leave it to a crazy German or Swiss dude to come up with such an idea ( Hey and that’s no slam at our Euro brothers I have many that I consider righteous cats). I raced downhill and commitment and intestinal fortitude are on the up and up when flying along at 65 on our public by-ways. Anyways thanks for the link to the entertaining clips I watched many of them and that guy is wild.


Enough, blah blah blah
I’m a retired ( from comp. ) skeleton slider missing the speed juju so when ever a post or opportunity to ramble on comes around I usually blab on, apologies’ all around......Later NH

Sort of on topic:
The dude in C.S. video is really cool. The only thing missing is a solid fuel booster on his back and a bunch of rapidfire 20's, now that would be awesome.

Off topic:
This is completely off topic but i "printscreened" this a while ago.

Haha C.s. goes posting everywhere at the same time.

Does posting in agreement somehow validate your standing in the community? Personally I think it just makes you look like a tool.
