    Forsaken Circuit: Interview with Alex McKenzie and Jon Sevik

    Alex McKenzie stands amid the rubble of a forgotten Chinese restaurant


    Watch "Forsaken Circuit" here.

    For many, adventure can be a daunting task. What looks good on paper doesn't always turn out how we hope. You get rained on, cars break down, the hotel doesn't have hot water, your funds run out before it even feels like you got started. These common bumps in the road keep many people from experiencing what there is to be had in the great wide world.

    In their video "Forsaken Circuit", Alex McKenzie and Jon Sevik took the little free time they had before summer ended to make memories that will last until their next journey. Their travels are not dictated by the robotic voice of their GPS, they don't listen to the endless ramblings of a tour guide, they didn't find a treasure map in Davey Jones' locker. They found a few hard to believe locations thanks to the dense thicket of the internet and went for it. Like true explorers, the adventure did not go according to plan. And that was the point.

    ReLive: YuPing Cup & Part 1 of the HLSS Tour

    Few weeks back i was lucky enough to explore further into my own country that is China. Living in Hong Kong is very different to the rest of China. First of all because Hong Kong is its own independent region and secondly because the "Hong Kongese" or "Hong Kongers" people don't seem to like being associated with the mainland due to a number of reasons that would require lots of explanations so i'll save that for another time. Anyways, what I'm trying to get at here is that while i do live on the door step to the most populated country on the planet I had never actually been more than 50 km ( 31.06856 miles for all you freedom folk ) north into the mainland.

    That's why when I heard that the first ever race was going down in Chengdu i jumped at the chance. So the crew was assembled and we were off. We landed in Chengdu during the small hours of the morning and decided to go exploring for some party. We found some.

    Waking up in what we found out to be an "escort" hotel was surprisingly not as great as it sounds but never the less we then headed for the local skate shop to meet up with all the homies and catch the bus to the town where the race would be held.

    Not your average shop entrance

    In typical Hong Kong fashion we arrived 6 hours early so more exploring went on.

    Limited Edition CARBON Tesseract


    Loaded Boards Carbon Tesseract

    Loaded's ambassadors love the Truncated Tesseract, but a few wanted to see if a slightly stiffer board would get them going faster. After months of testing at the Hadron Collider beneath the Franco-Swiss boarder, we concluded that applying a future-forward, hi-tech layer of carbon fiber made the Tesseract look totally badass... and perfectly rigid and agile for skateboarding fast.

    We have produced a very limited run of 300 individually numbered modified boards and are offering them one-time-only on our site. Loaded is donating a percentage of proceeds from each board to the awesome non-profit STOKED whose mission is to inspire low-income teens and help them succeed through action sports. These funds will be used exclusively to get kids on skateboards in the Los Angeles area, and our team will be on hand to help along the way. Loaded has been involved with STOKED for over a decade and has witnessed thousands of smiles and seen how much learning a new skill can change a life.

    The boards will be available October 1st at 9AM PST and will go fast.

    Go to www.loadedboards.com to add some carbon fiber to your diet and check out www.STOKED.org to sign up, volunteer, and make a difference.

    RAD RAD Radicals Fiesta!

    Radicals Fiesta! took place on past September 5th in Osaka, Japan.

    I could write a simple report with a chronicle about how things went on the day of the event and how fun it was (to make you readers jealous... just kidding!). However this time, besides the event report of Radicals Fiesta, I'll write about the whole experience of organizing local events and sessions I have been doing since 2013 together with my partner in crime Fifer. Also we want to give a little of context of the Japanese scene; believe me, things in Japan are really different. We want to share this experience because we believe that there is bunch of young talent out there who want to make things happens but doesn't know where to start. Hopefully sharing our experience could encourage you readers, because if we have done it, you could do it too!

    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 by Mafe Cano Photography

    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!).
