Coming out of France via the Ridemore team is this ace video from the 1km push race. We really like distance skating in all it’s forms; marathon, mile, Ultraskate or country-crossing epic but there is something amazing about a straight up 1000m drag race. Running your own 1km race? Hit us up and let us know when and where! Advertisements Continue reading Race – 1000 mètres
We stumbled across this trip the other day and got in contact with Flo. He has just completed 58 days of skating, starting in Germany and finishing in Istanbul. I didn’t know if I would like longboarding for two months straight and if I could even do it. I just started. I didn’t let all the blogs and forums that tell you “you have to … Continue reading Journey – Just A Couple Of Spins

Back in 2010 a certain HammerHead posted this up in the Skatefurther forum.
Hey distance people. I have an idea I would like to get all of your input on for an event possibly in 2011. A multi-day Stage Race (a la Tour De France) where racers start together each day and cover the same distance not in a circuit but point to point.
Roll on 5 years and The Chief Ladiga has become THE distance skateboarding event across the globe. This year was no exception. 3 days of racing over 188 miles and the top 2 were 20 seconds apart with Andrew Andras taking out this years title. Every yeah the level of riding gets closer and closer and the riders are more and more prepared.
Massive shout outs to everyone who entered and completed the 2015 Chief Ladiga Silver Comet Skate Callenge. Special mention goes to the winners Andrew Andras and Sarah Rassieur. And of course to Marion who once again has set the bar high for other distance skate events.

I realised that i … Continue reading Journey – Skate For Hope

The trip has been a year in the making and it look like it’s been a rolercoaster of a ride. … Continue reading Journey – The Long Push To Ibiza
