    Otoño Longboard Jam

    Versión en español más abajo ↓

    After a while without any local events down here in our small country, the Otoño Longboard Jam was the result of hard work in order to grow our community.

    Fabio Martínez (2nd Open Freestyle)

    Once again, an event organized by riders, for riders. And of course, supported by Longboard House, Loaded and Orangatang. Together with my teammate and friend Axel Montgomery and Andres 'El Jefe' Guidali, we started carefully planning the event. We wanted to make it special and different, an in-law event to keep spreading the stoke. Our brothers at boardshop Skateland lent us two ramps and a rail (HUGE thanks, guys!).

    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.)

    The royal pair of parking 2013 (Paris, FRANCE)

    The royal pair of parking in 2013
    For several years, the longboard season in Paris have been starting with great energy.
    So it was this time. The last weekend of February was rich with excitement and new
    One weekend, two events! One better than the other!
    L.V.P 2013 and K.O.P 2013


    Longskate video party 2013:


    Bad weather and the last frosty winter made all the riders hungry for any event. So everyone
    was strongly motivated and ready to fight for prizes.
    The 8th edition of the LVP Contest was organized by Alice "Manouk" and Loic "Kilo" and it
    took place in Paris, in the famous bar "Cantada".

    The event was supposed to select the winner – author of the best video of the year 2012.
    The decisive criterion was the number of “Likes” on Facebook.
    Videos with the greatest number of votes were awarded with lots of prizes coming from
    many sponsors participating in the event.

    King of Parking 2013:
    Finally, the day of Sunday 24 February was reserved for the PCD 2013 event organized by
    Antoine Capus "Babar" at la Defense.
    The event consisted in a spiral race on a five-level car park. Due to the fact that the whole
    incident was NOT agreed with the authorities, it lasted less than 3 min.
    The rule was simple: the winner takes it all! Except that this time there were more prizes,
    because among the whole crowd of wild guys in the race, there was also room for girls who
    fought for the title of “Queen of the Parking”.

    Od kilku lat sezon longboardowy w Paryżu rozpoczyna się z mocnym impetem.
    Tak też bylo i tym razem. Ostatni weekend lutego obfitował w wielkie emocje i nowe
    Jeden weekend: dwa wydarzenia!!! Jedno lepsze od drugiego!
    LVP 2013 i KOP 2013
    Brzydka pogoda i mroźna zima wygłodziły wszystkich riderów, którzy od dłuższego
    czasu wypatrywali jakiejś imprezy. Także każdy był zmotywowany i gotowy do walki o

    Wreszcie niedziela, dzień 24 lutego podporządkowany był imprezie KOP 2013
    zorganizowanej przez Antoine Capus "Babar" na la Défence.
    Wydarzenie polegało na wyścigu w spirali na terenie parkingu pięciopoziomowego. Z
    tego powodu, że cale zajście NIE było uzgodnione z władzami, trwało ono niecałe 3 min.
    Reguła była prosta: pierwszy zgarnia wszystko!  Z tym, że tym razem nagród było
    więcej, gdyż w całym dzikim tłumie facetów w wyścigu znalazło się również miejsce dla
    dziewczyn, które walczyły o tytuł Królowej Parkingu.
    Na samym końcu odbyło sie rozrzucanie drobnych nagród, takich jak: kolka, t-shirty, itp.
    Obu wydarzeniom towarzyszyło dużo zabawy i radości.
