    New Mexico's Skate Swap 5

    Hello all!

    It's Chris, back yet again with a writeup about New Mexico's 5th Annual Skate Swap and Sock Drive. It's an event that came about during a brainstorm session years ago, trying to answer one question: How do we throw an event benefiting local charity, the scene at large, and the skaters themselves?

    Mad love to everybody who helped, donated, raced, chilled, or won!

    Enter the Skate Swap and Sock Drive.

    About stoke spreaders: Valeria Kechichian

    Versión en español más abajo ↓

    You may have already heard about Valeria Kechichian. Everyone that knows Vale personally knows how sweet and modest she is.

    Valeria Kechichian is an ordinary girl from Buenos Aires who moved to Spain a long while ago looking for something else to see. She was born in 1980, but it was in 2010 that she co-founded Longboard Girls Crew. This community’s main goal is spreading the stoke between ladies and having gender equality in longboarding. Even though it was supposed to be something local, it went huge almost instantly.

    The Santa Gnarbara Experience

    When you're up there, it's somewhere else that you go. It doesn't specifically feel like you're on a mountain, or that you're in Santa Barbara, the state of California, or even the good ol' US of A, for that matter. When you make the ascent to the lofty peaks that make up the Santa Barbara range you leave behind all the bullshit of your day to day, and embrace a tetherless experience of being above it all. Every year the Santa Gnarbara race comes around, and every year I relish the opportunity to make a weekend out of it and spend my time in the clouds. It's a bit of a cleansing experience, a weekend of gorgeous scenic views and incline oriented skateboarding to help put the odds and ends of your life back into perspective. It's also something I don't take for granted, knowing full well I'm rather privileged to be able to live a life that allows me to experience such things. As you can probably tell by now I really enjoy those mountains. I feel safe, cozy amongst those steep cliffs, the winding ridge roads, the bathed-in-orange sunset sessions. It's like a dream you once had, but it's real, in all its glorious vividness.

    Camping amongst the stars, skateboarding in the AM.

    Angie's Curves: A Love Affair with a Feeling

    You'd be hard pressed to disagree with the fact that Angie's Curves is the most technical and demanding course in the IDF. Not just specifically for its numerous high speed twists and turns, but also in regards to its sheer downhill speed and taxing racing climate. Whether you're coming to grips with the sixty-some-odd-mile-per-hour straight into two sharp right-hand turns, or you're dealing with the sweltering hot temperatures of the Pala, California environment, the Angie's Curves race can easily be considered something of a thing of passion in our sport. A race that shows no mercy and demands its athletes truthfully push both their bodies and minds to the absolute limit. Angie's Curves is not only a race, it's a high water mark, a true test of faith. You don't just skate Angie's Curves; you live it, breathe it, sweat it.

    Central Mass 5 Longboard / Skateboard Festival: Organizer's Recap

    August 15-17th, 2014 marked the 5th annual Central Mass Longboard Festival and my most ambitious undertaking yet. To call it a "Longboard festival" is a bit misleading; these three days saw 397 registered skateboarders of all shapes, sizes, disciplines and creeds take to the races, ramps, slides and rails in three different venues across Harvard. A rowdy after-party in Ayer, MA topped off the action. One of the major goals with Central Mass is to break down the unnecessary and counterproductive walls between skate disciplines - most prominently between "short boarding" and "longboarding". Instead, the event strives to push riders to comingle and progress in all disciplines with no extraneous lines drawn in the sand. To pull off something of that scope as an independent organizer takes approximately 2 metric tons of elbow grease, 3,000 gallons of diplomacy, enough budget to buy an entry-level BMW and a time investment sufficient to make an hourly employee rich, so I got started early. (For more insight into the nitty-gritty preparatory steps, check out last year’s Organizer’s Recap.)

    We from Sports’ Association Planka from Slovenia are well-established actor in organizing longboard events. After much-publicized Kurescek Cup event in 2011(see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjRQG8QhpwE) we got a positive feedback from whole longboard community. This crystalized our vision as well as our determination to be the best gravity sports organizer in Europe and worldwide. Our crew has scouted many days for that perfect road where the event could take place and we are proud to say that the search has finally bear fruits. Continue reading
