    RedBull Sidewinders, the first DH race in JAPAN!

    What is the biggest distance you ever skated down a mountain road? Which is the longest racing track you could think of?

    Racing 9km down with 69 hairpins; sounds insane? Must be a leg burner for sure. Is it even fun racing that far? How many runs even humanly possible in a day?! So many questions might pop up in your head.

    Well, it actually happened last month in Aomori, Japan!

    Northern part of the main island there is this scenic road "Iwaki Skyline". Absolute u"road porn" images of epic hairpins has been out there already for years and I've seen them popped up on my FB feeds every once in a while. Even though, difficult access from metropolitan area kept the road as "skate virgin" for many years.

    I've seen these images popping up on my FB feed every once in a while.

    DockSession Update

    DockSession keeps the fun going on Sundays for Los Angeles locals and visitors. This past few sessions have been incredibly fun. We've been hanging out at a short bike path with very low traffic right next to the beach: a perfect space to learn and practice some dance moves.

    The Blood Slayer Lives!

    The rebirth of the Chubby Unicorn into the Blood Slayer sparked the flames of creativity in the Loaded crew like never before. Rather than going with a traditional skate video, we took this release as an opportunity to delve into a new realm of media; heavy metal music videos.

    Kozakov Challenge DH Skateboarding Dream Event

    Kozakov Challenge 2017 Race Recap

    Of all the DH events in the world Kozakov is definitely worth making the trip to beautiful Czech Republic.

    Since I started skating hills about 7 years ago, I had always dreamed of making this trip and I must say it was an even better experience than I had expected.

    For those of you who have never been to the event, Kozakov is a 2.5-km premium race track, in the middle of the woods, close to the beautiful and classy Czech city of Turnov. It has the best pavement you have been dreaming of since you started skating, all different styles of corners, very technical and with +90 km/h straight sections.

    DockSessionLA August

    We found a new spot! Thanks to our good friend and Malibu OG Steve Wu's suggestions we moved our session to a flat and easy going bike path in Santa Monica. It's a great spot to be near the beach, skate and hang out with the DockSession family.

    Here's a short fun video of out last session. We're gonna keep jamming there till further notice; follow us on our Facebook page to be up to date on our events.

    DockSession LA July

    The month of July has been a busy one for us here at DockSession LA. We had our beloved Mexican Loaded ambassador Marco Sandoval in town, so we were mostly stacking clips for his upcoming video in Los Angeles. Sadly we don't have an event video for this blog post since all the footage will be saved for the video. Keep your eyes peeled on the Loaded YouTube and Facebook pages!

    In addition to filming with Marco, Alberto has been skating more and more while recovering his knee. He came back with a different mindset and he's been getting new tricks that even surprise him.

    We've had a couple of new members added to the weekly slashing, we're always happy to see new faces. Next week's session is going to be in Santa Monica, pushing by the beach. Join us! Bring your friends and some sunblock!

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170721

    I had been working in a small mom & pop sporting good store that bought and sold used sporting equipment. I had gotten the job as a way to earn some meager cash over the summer while school had been on recess. The owner was, often times, in a drunken stupor in his little upstairs office, while my co-worker and I ran the store.

    DockSession June/July

    It's been such a fun month for DockSession! Franklin Sundays are growing strong and more people are starting to come. We had an awesome little session in Vancouver before the Giant's Head Freeride weekend. Hosted by Flatspot Longboard Shop, the crew skated through Vancouver and stopped at several spots to hang out and share with the locals.

    Here's a little recap of some fun clips we've filmed at Franklin.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark's Log – 170710

    Skateboarding has been the focus of my life for the last decade. Whether it was playing an active role as a photographer/writer contributing "content" to the hype machine or being the eye candy in front of the lens, I've managed to carve out a double existence within this small humble realm, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't acknowledge the fact that I've been extremely fortunate to have been able to live such a life. With that said, if there is one thing you realize through all of this, it's that stagnation is the swan song to our industry. The moment we accept complacency within our spectrum, is the moment when everything begins to unravel.
