Throwback – The Allure of Long Distance Skateboarding

Skatefurther has been around for a almost decade. Lots of miles have passed beneath us all. One of our biggest highlights was watching Rob Thomson skate his way into the record books. Rob became a great friend of Skatefurther and it was always awesome to check into the old forum (R.I.P.) and see where he had got to in the world, marvel over his photos and videos and offer words of support from afar. Many, many distance skaters put their love of skating further down to Rob and his epic skate.

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

Rob wrote an amazing blog post a few years after his trip called ‘The Allure of Long Distance Skateboarding‘ and we highly recommend you go and read it.
