    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!).

    Review: II Longboard Girls Crew South American Meeting

    It's been more than two months since the II LGC meeting was held and I still feel stoked and happy that working hard gave some good results after all.

    Once again, Valeria Kechichian reunited riders from Argentina and Uruguay to organize the second South American Meeting. It is awesome seeing how a small group of people can help bringing together lady shredders from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and Paraguay.

    We all think that having fun is the aim. No pressures, no hard competitions, just silly games to play, a clinic to pass on everything that we may know, and to learn things, too! As I mentioned, we invented some games just to have an excuse to make all the girls win something.

    About stoke spreaders: Valeria Kechichian

    Versión en español más abajo ↓

    You may have already heard about Valeria Kechichian. Everyone that knows Vale personally knows how sweet and modest she is.

    Shot by Rapluc

    Valeria Kechichian is an ordinary girl from Buenos Aires who moved to Spain a long while ago looking for something else to see. She was born in 1980, but it was in 2010 that she co-founded Longboard Girls Crew. This community’s main goal is spreading the stoke between ladies and having gender equality in longboarding. Even though it was supposed to be something local, it went huge almost instantly.

    Superhill Session 2014 ver. 1.0


    After having some of the craziest winters ever recorded in Tokyo and its surroundings, a season marked with some strong snowstorms and shut down roads. Skaters were itching to get some warm sunlight and dry roads. Finally extreme cold is over and you can feel spring is around the corner, you can feel that time to shred some asphalt its coming.

    Sessions 1.0 was the perfect warm up event to start skate season in Japan. We were lucky just to have such a beautiful and warm day, one of the first sunny weekends of the year. Just a day before there was some out of season snow falling in Tokyo. This end of winter was one of the factors that helped to have such a relaxed and flawless event. It resulted in a huge familiar picnic with good music, good food, good old frisbee and good skate. It was the pretext to be outdoor hanging out meeting new people sharing the same love for board culture.

    Hood Inc., Loaded's new distributor in Japan, showed up with many boards for some test rides!

    Get Them Stoked Project just started, and the 4 of us (Fernando Bailleres, Fabián Gutiérrez, Claudio Uribe and me Gerardo Moreno) started moving from Guadalajara city, to visit 2 of the best spots on the state.

    (From left to right: Fabián Gutierrez, Fer Bailleres, Gerardo Moreno, Claudio Uribe)

    First day early in the morning, we head to Ciudad Guzmán, this is quite a new community with few people skating but highly motivated and most add on top of this they have a gnarly road.

    By midday we were already there, and we had the chance to skate for couple hours, followed by a small foot brake and pre drift clinic, basic stuff for people who's starting with the final purpose of making easier for them to skate safe and enjoy of this great road.

    Unfortunately started to rain about 5 pm and we didn't had the chance to document and film the spot as deserves it, so we may have to come back.

    (Ciudadd Guzmán Community)

    Next day we went with some of the locals from Guadalajara, Orangatang Ambassador Daniel Caro, Jaime Ortiz and Kevin, all from Skate Troll Media, to one of my favourite spots “Los Gatos” this is a place that has 4 different tracks, for every style of riding, with different pavements, weather was perfect and we were able to film and take some photos this day.

    Right after Guadalajara we pack our baggage again and we drove to the city of León, Gto. The skate community here is quite big and middle size for longboarding. Right after we arrive locals took us to one of their spots called “Comalong” perfect pavement and very few cars on the road, rain came again and we skate this time with dry/wet patches we couldn't skate it as fast as we wanted, reason why we'll be back.

    Next morning we head to Mexico City, where we had a short stop, we had an interview with the biggest newspapper “Reforma”. We also had a chance to skate with 3 of the locals from Mexico city, José Luis Romero, Daniel Favela y Roberto Pimentel.

    After the interview and skating we drove to Fabián's house to get some rest and get our stuff ready to drive more than 800 km on the next day to San José del Pacífico, Oaxaca, is one of the highest places in Oaxaca with beautiful scenarios, lots of mountains and gnarly roads. We expend there only one night due that this was on our way to our real destiny, Huatulco Oaxaca, for the race Maguey Downhill.

    Huatulco is a small city that has one of the best beaches in Meixo, lots of spots, really nice pavement, and a small community with about 40 people skating that made Maguey Downhill Race possible.

    Race day started about 10 am, organizers gave us a delicious brakefast, the race heats flowed really nicely, and at the end of the race 3 of us made it into the finals, due that Fabián eliminated Claudio.



    Fabián got 3th, Fer second and Gerardo (me)1st

    Once the race finished our host Edén Sanchez, took us to skate, we had a chance to skate an amazing ditch and we also skate the local spots with some of the locals, and riders from other cities that came to the race, we expend the whole afternoon with them, and during the night we got ready to leave again. This time to Oaxaca city.

    Once we arrived in Oaxaca , we found only 2 people skating, Paco Camarena from Huatulco and Christina from Germany who was there only for vacations staying at the same Hostel that we were. Paco took us to skate to Montealban ruins road, fast road with excelent pavement very few cars, and couple corners to slide and grip, and you get to see the whole city while skating down the road.

    After lots of driving and skating we head back to Mexico city but we will tell you more about the trip on the next blog entry, meanwhile I leave you with our first teaser, if you like what we do we invite you to follow us on the social network, so you can know more about Mexico Lonboard/Skateboard scene.

    Versión en Español

    El proyecto Get Them Stoked recién comenzó y arrancamos de la ciudad de Guadalajara, Los 4 (Fernando Bailleres, Fabián Gutiérrez, Claudio Uribe y yo Gerardo Moreno) salimos de la Ciudad de Guadalajara y visitamos dos de los mejores spots ,Ciudad Guzmán y Gatos.

    El primer día salimos temprano a visitar a la comunidad de Ciudad Guzmán, es una comunidad pequeña pero muy entusiasmada en patinar y lograr que más gente comience a patinar en la ciudad.

    Llegamos al spot cerca de la 1, tuvimos oportunidad de patinar con ellos por un par de horas y más adelante realizamos un actividad con la gente que empieza a patinar, dando tips básicos como hacer de foot brake y pre drift.

    Desafortunadamente la lluvia llegó a las 5 pm y no tuvimos oportunidad de documentar el spot como se lo merece, por ello tendremos que volver a este spot en un par de semanas.

    Al día  siguiente fuimos con algunos de los locales de Guadalajara entre ellos Daniel Caro, embajador de Orangatang, Jaime Ortiz y Kevin de Skate Troll Media, A uno de los mejores spots de Mexico "Los Gatos", en el spot existe una gran diversidad de rutas para patinar  tuvimos un dia perfecto para patinar poco sol y muchas horas para patinar y grabar material.

    Después de nuestra visita por la ciudad de Guadalajara empacamos maletas nuevamente y nos dirigimos hacia la Ciudad de León, Gto, donde hay una comunidad muy grande de skate y mediana de Longboard. Recién llegamos y los locales nos llevaron a uno de sus spots mas divertidos "Comalong". Nuevamente tuvimos un poco de lluvia y el spot lo patinamos con parches mojados sin embargo León también lo volveremos a visitar al regreso a Guadalajara.

    Temprano por la mañana siguiente nos dirigimos rumbo a la Ciudad de México donde realizamos una parada breve ya que teníamos una cita para una entrevista con el periódico reforma, uno de los diarios de mayor importancia y con mayor número de publicaciones diarios en el país.

    Tuvimos la oportunidad de fotografiar y tomar un poco de video con algunos de los locales de la ciudad de México, entre ellos José Luis Romero, Daniel Favela y Roberto Pimentel.

    Terminada la sesión pasamos a casa de Fabián a descansar un poco y prepararnos para manejar más de 800km al día siguiente con rumbo a San José del pacífico, Oaxaca, este es uno de los lugares más elevados en el estado con una vista increíble a través de montañas y cascadas de nubes. Pasamos solo esa noche ahí ya que en realidad esta era solo una escala a nuestro siguiente destino, Huatulco, Oaxaca. Para la carrera de Maguey Downhill Race.

    La ciudad de Huatulco, es una de las mejores playas de México con una gran cantidad de spots y pavimento perfecto para patinar, en la ciudad hay una comunidad pequeña, con al rededor de 40 personas patinando los cuales se juntaron a hacer la carrera.

    El día de la carrera logramos colarnos a la final 3 de nosotros ya que Claudio quedó eliminado en una de las rondas pasadas por Fabián, quedando el podio de la siguiente manera.

    3er Lugar Fabian
    2do Lugar Fer Bailleres
    1er Lugar Gerardo Moreno (yo)

    Una vez terminada la carrera nuestro anfitrión Edén Sanchez, quién nos recibió en su casa nos llevó a patinar los spots locales, el cual patinamos junto con algunos de los riders que asistieron a la carrera. Pasamos la tarde con ellos y nos preparamos para ir al día siguiente a la Ciudad de Oaxaca.

    Una vez en La ciudad de Oaxaca, encontramos solo a dos personas que patinaban, Paco Camarena de la Ciudad de Huatulco y Christina de Alemania que estaba de vacaciones paseando por México. Paco nos llevó quizá a una de las carretera más rápidas justo abajo de uno de los lugares más turisticos, Las Ruinas de Montealban, una pista con curvas, excelente piso y bastante rápida, en la cual se puede ver la ciudad mientras vas patinando.

    Después de recorrer la Ciudad de Oaxaca nos dirigimos de regreso a la Ciudad de México pero les contaremos más sobre esto en la siguiente entrada de blog, mientras tanto les dejo con un pequeño adelanto el Primer Teaser de nuestro proyecto.

    Los invitamos a seguirnos en las redes sociales para que puedan darle continuidad a los spots que hemos patinado y que conozcan las comunidades y la escena del Longboard y skate en México
