Newcomers to this site might not know much about Rob Thomsons 14 Degrees journey. We here at skatefurther certianly do.
In July 2006, Rob started a 12,000km journey across Eurasia but on the 25th June 2007 swapped his bike for a board and began a world record breaking skate across Europe, North America and China. On the 28th of September 2008 he arrived in Shanghai after skating just over 12,000km (7,500 miles) and smashing the previous world record for distance.
We here at skatefurther felt a big part of Rob’s journey following his every move from his outstanding website, we also know that Rob’s journey inspired so many people to pick up a board and set of journeys of their own.

Community is the most essential factor in any successful endeavour. Without the Skatefurther.com community, I wouldn’t have made it across China and to my goal at Shanghai. Period.
