    Longboarding Camp

    John Barnet was a guest instructor at a skate camp with Longboard Living. Here is a brief recap of the event!

    Longboard Living and Mischa Chantler have been working hard to put together a skate camp for groms.  As you all have noticed by now there has been a large change in the demographics of longboarding.  Where the young guys used to be around 16 years old they now are closer to 9.  Where downhill might be still a little hard for the 80 pound bodies they are perfect for freeriding, and man can these kids shred.  From slide shuvits to no complys, they do everything with ease.

    To help them progess faster and to help instill proper safety habits Mischa has put together a grom camp.  Mischa takes these groms down to the slide hill to teach them proper techniques and encourages them to try new tricks.  After they have sliding down the go to the Janes paths, which are 2 hairpin turns they can try their slides at.  Since Mischa lives on my living room floor he asked me to come help out.  When I got to the hill I was blown away at the ability of these groms and wasn't sure I had too much to teach them.  We talked a bit about board position and went over the basics of a coleman and toeside.  After this we talked about tucking for a bit and got everybody tucking, then talked about cornering and apexing properly.

    Within a few runs they had everything down and we started to race.  I was challenged to a race and had a fun run and was able to beat a 9 year old, it felt great.  Then he wanted a rematch so I accepted, he changed his strategy and he rode right into me in the first corner, went down and acted hurt, when I went to check on him he got up and ran off, he almost got me.  It was such a fun time getting to shred with groms so skilled and stoked.  Everybody's gonna have to keep a look out for the next generation.

    Jacko Moves On

    Jackson Shapiera has decided to move to Sector 9 for wheel sponsorship. After speaking with Jackson about Orangatang's direction and what he is looking for in his growth as a rider, we found that our paths have diverged in the past couple years. We're thankful for what Jacko has done over the past few years here at Orangatang. We know Jacko to be multi-talented and a self starter, and we are excited for his opportunities with Sector 9. We think that this will be a great opportunity for him and expect to see great things over the coming years.
