    PLVNK - Perfect One (Live at Loaded)

    On November 29th, our good friends at PLVNK (pronounced "Plank") played a super fun, intimate show for close friends and family in the Loaded warehouse.

    Johnboy, Nachum, and Mal took the stage with Brendan and Janae and rocked out with a super eclectic set pulling from their diverse influences. They played a full set including one of my personal favorites, Where Did We Go Wrong, and a bunch of new music.

    RedBull Sidewinders, the first DH race in JAPAN!

    What is the biggest distance you ever skated down a mountain road? Which is the longest racing track you could think of?

    Racing 9km down with 69 hairpins; sounds insane? Must be a leg burner for sure. Is it even fun racing that far? How many runs even humanly possible in a day?! So many questions might pop up in your head.

    Well, it actually happened last month in Aomori, Japan!

    Northern part of the main island there is this scenic road "Iwaki Skyline". Absolute u"road porn" images of epic hairpins has been out there already for years and I've seen them popped up on my FB feeds every once in a while. Even though, difficult access from metropolitan area kept the road as "skate virgin" for many years.

    I've seen these images popping up on my FB feed every once in a while.

    DockSession Update

    DockSession keeps the fun going on Sundays for Los Angeles locals and visitors. This past few sessions have been incredibly fun. We've been hanging out at a short bike path with very low traffic right next to the beach: a perfect space to learn and practice some dance moves.

    Kozakov Challenge DH Skateboarding Dream Event

    Kozakov Challenge 2017 Race Recap

    Of all the DH events in the world Kozakov is definitely worth making the trip to beautiful Czech Republic.

    Since I started skating hills about 7 years ago, I had always dreamed of making this trip and I must say it was an even better experience than I had expected.

    For those of you who have never been to the event, Kozakov is a 2.5-km premium race track, in the middle of the woods, close to the beautiful and classy Czech city of Turnov. It has the best pavement you have been dreaming of since you started skating, all different styles of corners, very technical and with +90 km/h straight sections.

    DockSessionLA August

    We found a new spot! Thanks to our good friend and Malibu OG Steve Wu's suggestions we moved our session to a flat and easy going bike path in Santa Monica. It's a great spot to be near the beach, skate and hang out with the DockSession family.

    Here's a short fun video of out last session. We're gonna keep jamming there till further notice; follow us on our Facebook page to be up to date on our events.

    DockSession LA July

    The month of July has been a busy one for us here at DockSession LA. We had our beloved Mexican Loaded ambassador Marco Sandoval in town, so we were mostly stacking clips for his upcoming video in Los Angeles. Sadly we don't have an event video for this blog post since all the footage will be saved for the video. Keep your eyes peeled on the Loaded YouTube and Facebook pages!

    In addition to filming with Marco, Alberto has been skating more and more while recovering his knee. He came back with a different mindset and he's been getting new tricks that even surprise him.

    We've had a couple of new members added to the weekly slashing, we're always happy to see new faces. Next week's session is going to be in Santa Monica, pushing by the beach. Join us! Bring your friends and some sunblock!

Hosted by Flatspot Longboard Shop, the crew skated through Vancouver and stopped at several spots to hang out and share with the locals.

    Here's a little recap of some fun clips we've filmed at Franklin.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170613

    I’ll never forget what it felt like to attend my first slide jam. I remember the crowds of skaters and spectators alike, all sitting along the sides of the hill. I remember the sound of skateboards and sliding wheels, cheers and hollers as skaters flew by. Here and there were the individuals you recognized from photos, the seasoned guys doing all things stand-up, rarely dropping slide pucks to the ground. It was truly a spectacular thing to watch.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s log – 170329

    Some weeks had passed since we had been back to our beloved DTLA garage of garages. I had personally spent time casing the garage during the weeks of our absence, memorizing security patterns, making sure that IF we were to return to our weekly routine, things would be relatively “stress” free. I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure how things would turn out. The security had been staying later and later, which in corporate terms means that someone had to make a decision in a meeting to keep these guards hanging out longer, thus costing them more in the process. So the fact that our presence had become enough of a concern for them to start having their lackeys hang around later was reason enough for us to stay away.
