    Hummel Havoc 2015: In No Coast Country

    Photos by Scott Rowe

    I heard a guy at Hummel Havoc telling his friend, “There is West Coast, East Coast, and No Coast.” No Coast, if you’ve been living under a rock, is the Midwest’s answer to the growing domination of our sport by the coastal scenes.  There are more skaters coming up into the racing scene everywhere, and in the No Coast areas, that translates to more races closer to home, instead of driving to California or Vermont.

    Signups started early

    Hummel Havoc carries on the tradition of successful independent events in the NoCoast area. It reminded me of the excellent Buffalo Bill Downhill Bloodspill (RIP) in Colorado and the taken-before-its-time Davis City Downhill in Oklahoma.

    Mesa De Las Tablas International Longboard Festival: A Paradise of Skating: En Dos Linguas

    Translation by Gerardo Moreno

    Photos and Words by Chris Cade

    I don’t know about you, but when I think of a downhillers paradise, I imagine a place like a long mountain valley, with roads on one side, and nothing but pine trees on the other side, so I can watch the shadows of the clouds pass across the mountains.  It’ll be down to a little town, so that there’s almost no one coming up it, but still a place where you can get a meal and stay a night or four.  No one takes a picture then immediately dives mind first into the phone to play the social media game. There’s no signal, so you can still take pictures, but then, when the moment has passed, you put your phone in your pocket, because the important part was seeing it anyway. You’ll remember these moments.

    No sé ustedes pero cuando yo pienso en un paraíso para el Downhill, yo me imagino un lugar con un gran y extenso valle en medio de las montañas, con caminos a un lado de estas, con nada más que pinos y árboles del otro lado, y así poder ver las sombras de las nubes pasando a través de las montañas. Este camino me llevaría a un pequeño pueblo, al cual casi nadie va ni viene, de igual manera siempre puedes encontrar comida y un cuarto donde pasar una noche o cuatro. No hay señal por ningún lado así que aun puedes seguir tomando fotos con tu celular, pero después que pasó el momento guardas el celular en tu bolsillo, porque la parte importante es ver el momento. Lo recordarás en tu cabeza de cualquier manera.

    Otoño Longboard Jam

    Versión en español más abajo ↓

    After a while without any local events down here in our small country, the Otoño Longboard Jam was the result of hard work in order to grow our community.

    Fabio Martínez (2nd Open Freestyle)

    Once again, an event organized by riders, for riders. And of course, supported by Longboard House, Loaded and Orangatang. Together with my teammate and friend Axel Montgomery and Andres 'El Jefe' Guidali, we started carefully planning the event. We wanted to make it special and different, an in-law event to keep spreading the stoke. Our brothers at boardshop Skateland lent us two ramps and a rail (HUGE thanks, guys!).

    Review: II Longboard Girls Crew South American Meeting


    It's been more than two months since the II LGC meeting was held and I still feel stoked and happy that working hard gave some good results after all.

    Once again, Valeria Kechichian reunited riders from Argentina and Uruguay to organize the second South American Meeting. It is awesome seeing how a small group of people can help bringing together lady shredders from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and Paraguay.

    We all think that having fun is the aim. No pressures, no hard competitions, just silly games to play, a clinic to pass on everything that we may know, and to learn things, too! As I mentioned, we invented some games just to have an excuse to make all the girls win something.

    The Poncho Push.

    So, on the 2nd June I will be flying to Page, AZ and pushing the 650 miles to Los Angeles, CA via Las Vegas, Zion National Park, The Valley of Fire and the Hoover Dam with nothing but my Osprey backpack and my board.

    I'll documenting the entire trip to create into several videos and one main Film with the aim of skating and exploring some of the craziest places I can come across. The push has no concrete time-scale, leaving plenty of room for anything to happen.

    Greenskate LA: Army Of Three

    Friends, compatriots, let there be no doubt, I’ve thrown my fair share of skate events over the years. I’ve  run the gamut of mishaps, tackled with the unexpected, the unscripted, unplanned. I’ve attended and played host to numerous slide jams and weekly shred summonings. Savored countless instances of pure unadulterated skateboarding elation. Seen and sewn the seeds of stoke, both near and abroad. So, after almost six years of solid event attendance, organization, and assembly, naturally, you have to assume that there are going to be a few bad apples in the bunch, so to speak. Alas, so was what I had originally perceived by the painfully lackluster attendance of the recent event I threw in conjunction with Greenskate.org and Loaded Boards, The “Greenskate LA Sidewalk Shred”. Out of the twenty something people I had confirmed or assumed would attend our leisurely Sunday afternoon skate gathering, only a proud and faithful TWO had actually arrived. 

    Pushing off towards Wilshire Boulevard, and down towards the beach.

    “What to do?” I thought to myself nervously… Continue to stall the jam? (assuming maybe a few more swarthy souls would arrive)… or, run the day’s plan with the proud plucky two that made the effort to show up.. The resulting noble group-made decision to press onward despite our absence of numbers later proved not only to debunk my initial woeful projections as to the overall success of the afternoon, but also worked to remind me that while stoke in numbers may indeed be the case, it definitely does not dictate that a day spent shredding the streets with a two versus twenty isn’t necessarily any less fun; or in this case, meaningful.

    VLT 2015: 2 weeks in tropical islands of the Philippines!

    April has come! It means VLT!! Time for island vibes and 2 weeks full of shakas greetings everywhere!

    VLT is a 2 weeks+ long skateboard event and the biggest longboard event in Asia for sure. It all happens in the Visayas area in the Philippines and is divided into 3 main parts. VLT (Visayan Longboard Trilogy) includes traveling, skating, camping, hammocks, ferries, parties, mangos and coconuts, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, hopping from island to island with hundreds of skaters from all around the world. It all started some 6 years ago by a group of local skaters of Cebu in order to find new spots to skate while traveling and discovering the beauty of the nature which those islands have to offer.

    Me and trike, one of the local transportation at Siquijor

    This year, it seems like the VLT rumour has spread among longboarders around the world. Some big names and legends of the scene showed up, giving a special stoke to the locals.
