Switchbacks Race – 2014

Posted By: Pete Benda

Switchbacks Race - 2014

Switchbacks is a 60+ rider event, that’s free for anyone race. It’s located at Washington Park in good ol’ Portland Oregon. Anyone from advanced riders, to beginners are free to come to this wonderful event. But if you’re nervous about the race, don’t worry, we’re here to help you win. Switchbacks is a tricky course. It has three hairpins in total, two lefts and one right. It’s not a very steep course, so what makes the course so tricky is the extremely tight pack runs and technical riding needed. Every little thing makes the difference, so we’re here to help you decide one of the most important factors in this race: Wheels. There are a few things to consider when choosing the perfect wheel – your push, weight, drift, and your hookup.

Your Push

To decide on what size wheel you’ll want, you need to think about your push. If you are extremely fast off of the starting line, you can run a slightly larger wheel. The larger wheel will be great to give you a much higher speed on this slower course because of the larger size and higher velocity. But that doesn’t mean that a larger wheel is fit for everyone. If you don’t have the fastest push in the game, you may want to consider a smaller wheel. The smaller wheel will have a faster acceleration compared to the larger wheel, so you may not be able to push as fast, but you’ll be able to accelerate faster with the smaller wheels. So if you’re a pusher, go with a bigger wheel, if you’re slow off of the start, go with something that is a little bit smaller.

Your Weight

This is something that really needs to be put into consideration. If you’re a lighter weight rider, or a grom, you have a little bit of an advantage here at Switchbacks. You’re gonna have more grip and traction around corners. This means that you won’t need something as grippy on this course. So you could go with something that is a little bit harder of a wheel, which means something that is a little bit faster. If you’re a heavier set rider, gravity is going to be your friends. Because of your natural weight, you’ll be going a lot faster than some of the small guys out there, but you’ll in turn, have less traction. So we’d suggest going with something a little softer to really grip up well after your drifts.

Your Drift

This is absolutely key for winning switchbacks. You need absolute control in your drifts if you’re looking to win. If you’re known to highside a lot in your slides, you might want something that’s a little bit extra slippery. This way, you’ll slide for longer, rather than grip up as much. If you are washing out in your slides, you’re gonna be looking for something with a little bit of extra grip to it. We suggest something that is a square lipped wheel. This will give you a little extra traction for you when you’re wanting have more control over your drift.

Your Hookup

And finally, the hookup. This is a really key factor in racing Switchbacks. If you slide for too long and don’t hook up fast enough, you won’t come around the corner with enough exit speeds. This means you’ll surely be passed around the straightaways. But if you slide too short and you hookup too early, you’ll wash out later in the corner and slide into the dirt, swinging you off of your board. A good way to get very predictable hookup is a square lipped wheel in a durometer that accommodates your weight.

When you put all of these things into consideration, you’ll be sure to be on your way to winning Bitchswacks, we mean, Switchbacks!

8 Killer Longboarding Videos

Posted By: Pete Benda

When learning any new longboard skill or technique, I strongly recommend taking some time to study how other longboarders flex their decks. Even a less-experienced rider can teach us a great deal about how to control a board or land a creative new trick. Unfortunately, longboarding isn’t quite as popular as baseball and finding other local riders isn’t always easy, but thanks to the wondrous high-definition magic of the Internet, you can easily study longboarders of all kinds in order to perfect your shred or just vicariously enjoy a smooth cruise down a freshly paved road.

Here are a few killer videos I have personally collected for your home viewing entertainment:

  • 10 Beginner Longboard Tricks: Aside from the wicked shades worn by this neighborhood cruiser, I like the simplicity of this video and the great angles he has collected to display his tricks. It’s a great instructional video with few words and a sweet soundtrack.

  • Epic Longboard Trick Montage: This video is a great inspirational montage that does a great job exposing the many types of longboard techniques. From a great segment on carving and sliding to some pretty creative flatland tricks, this short clip will get you pumped for a good day on the board.

  • Best of Longboarding and GoPro Longboarding Tricks: Both of these videos really show off the potential of modern filming equipment with some beautiful and truly cinematic footage of great sliding and flip tricks. Filming your own sessions is a great way to improve your chops and notice exactly why you might be having trouble perfecting a dramatic Coleman slide or tiger claw. The GoPro has really revolutionized the sport and is a great tool for getting the most out of the extreme sport you love.

  • Longboard Girls’ Crew: I was stoked to come across this awesome video of a longboarding girls’ crew hitting some scenic slopes surrounded by thick forests. Skateboarding and longboarding can often seemed overwhelmingly male-dominated, and I truly appreciate when the gals get together to blow us away. I tip my hat to these young ladies having a great time.

  • Longboarding: Bruno & Camilo in Bogota Part 1: Shot in the lovely capital of Colombia, this video not only highlights the skills of some really incredible riders but also pays homage to our brothers in Latin America. One of my favorite aspects of longboarding and extreme sports in general is their ability to cross borders – these guys do an awesome job of repping some Latin flavor in a truly lovely city.

  • Sergio Yuppie – King of Downhill Slide: Huge props to this short documentary that is sure to blow you away. Once again, it highlights international talent while expressing some truly spiritual longboarding and skating philosophy. This guy is a true inspiration.

  • Night Ride #1: I really like this last video for its original artistry – it is a perfect example of some of the places you can take longboarding. These guys are certainly getting creative in a beautiful setting and reminding us of the joy of skating with friends. Watching it reminds me of why I love this sport and how much fun I can have in truly any place and at any time.

Get Out There!

While watching longboard videos might be a great way to spend an afternoon, I tend to save it for a rainy day. If the sun is shining, I encourage all of you to grab your deck and hit the streets – nothing can replace the awesome feeling of soaking up nature’s positive energy while enjoying the sport we love!

Sliding and Carving Tips

Posted By: Pete Benda

While most people wouldn’t even think to ride a bicycle without brakes, those of us who love longboarding have no other option but to learn some more “creative” methods for slowing down. The most useful and basic of these methods are carving and sliding, both of which involve using natural physics and friction to reduce speed and the likelihood of a nasty wipeout. I recommend to all new riders to get a firm grasp on these techniques before attempting to bomb any serious hills and studying the local crowd or Internet videos to perfect the execution. Carving and sliding are both very similar to snowboard maneuvers, although they require a bit more finesse due to our less forgiving terrain.

Carve It Up!

Carving a longboard is when you pull snaking S-turns from side to side, effectively slowing down and also giving a stronger feeling of control over a longboard that might be starting to speed-wobble. Practice on an easy downhill by leaning on the heels until reaching the gutter and then shifting the weight to the toes and completing an arching turn until the opposite side of the street. Continue this balanced turning dozens of times while keeping the knees bent while the back is straight and arms at your sides. Shifting your feet forward, toward the nose, will allow you to make a sharper carve but may set you off balance – practice until you find your personal sweet spot. Keep in mind that even simple movements can cause your board to react dramatically when hitting high speeds.

Slip-Sliding Away

If you’ve ever watched professional longboarding races, you’ve probably noticed the insane amount of time they spend literally drifting on their wheels as they fire down the track. This technique is known as sliding and is essential for those who want to conquer serious hills and take the sport to its maximum potential. There are a few different techniques, but all include creating friction with the wheels in order to brake. The most common slide is known as the Coleman slide and can bring you to a full stop if necessary. This trick requires slide gloves because of the need to place a hand on the rough cement. Pushing the rear heel forward and opening up the shoulders perpendicular to the street can create this slide if situated in a deep squat position. Practice in a squat position until it becomes comfortable, and remember that the lower body follows the shoulders and that the front foot should hold much of your weight, remaining strong and static throughout the slide.

Again and Again

These sliding techniques will allow you to gain confidence and control when longboarding and allow you to conquer hills that may seem beyond your skill level. They might be daunting at first, but with enough practice, your body will gradually memorize the movements, build the right muscles, and do much of the work for you once you have an idea of the proper execution. Keep in mind that all longboards can carve and slide, although some might be more difficult than others. Wheel size and shape, bushing choices, and weight all have a dramatic effect on the physics of a longboard. Don’t be discouraged if you cannot complete a wicked pendulum-like Coleman slide in the first week on your old water-logged longboard – the satisfaction you’ll feel when you finally hit it right will be worth the hard work.

Never Summer 2014 Longboards

Never Summer is made up of some awesome guys from Colorado that you need to get to know. Not only are they an amazing snowboard manufacturer but they’re taking what they know about the construction of a snowboard, and putting them into the longboarding world. There is honestly not a single other board on the market with a construction like a Never Summer. The Never Summer lineup features speed boards, cruiser boards, freestyle boards, freeride boards, and everything in between.

First you get the Never Summer Admiral. This is an awesome freeride / freestyle board that’s ready to take command. With its 3D channels that are only able to be done by Never Summer, this board has awesome rails to hold on to when predrifting as well as early grabbing. But it comes in a larger size as well, the Never Summer Commander. Truly construction we have never seen before.

Then there is the double drop boards, the Never Summer Hooligan and the Never Summer Deviant. Being so low to the ground, these boards are extremely stable and comfortable for pushing around town as well. The drop platform also locks you in for freeriding and is perfect for freestyling the day away.

And of course there is always downhilling. The Never Summer Reaper fits that exact need of a top mount directional speed board. Because of Never Summer’s awesome design, this board features rocker, recessed truck mounts, wheel wells, wheel flares, micro drop, and W concave. A ton of features all designed to lock you in. This was only possible with Never Summer’s amazing snowboard construction in the longboarding world. Overall, these snowboarders are here to show you that they are a force to be reckoned with in the longboarding world.

Great Longboarding Tricks

Posted By: Pete Benda

Even living far from the thrill of a freshly paved hill, you can still get a rush from taking out the board and learning some new tricks. Though often evolved from the pantheon of skateboard flips, grabs, and maneuvers, longboard tricks have developed a style and culture all their own as they continue to be tweaked in extreme and beautiful ways. Because of the added size and weight a longboarder must deal with, riders have designed innovative ways of using gravity, friction, and monstrous willpower to create a diverse collection of longboard tricks. The limits of possibility are constantly pushed by those who dedicate themselves to practice and the creative spirit.

One of the best ways to improve your downhill skills while learning some graceful longboard ballet is drawn from surfing maneuvers. Sometimes referred to as “longboard dancing,” these kinds of tricks develop balance and coordination.

Walkin’ the Plank

This basic trick includes literally walking up and down your board while it glides gracefully along the pavement. Bending the knees low, balance with your arms and adjust your position, giving all of your muscles and mentality perfect practice for more difficult tricks. Try going up on one foot for a variation known as “chop the wood” or switching the orientation of your feet in a surfing technique known as “cross-stepping.” Once you’ve mastered that, pay homage to the Beach Boys by placing both feet parallel on the nose and “hanging ten,” preferably while wearing a Hawaiian shirt.


Another foundational longboarding trick involves lifting your nose or tail off the ground and cruising on just two wheels; find a comfortable position and spread your arms out like an eagle to help find the sweet spot. Different board styles make these tricks vary in difficulty – try tightening your bushings if you find it impossible to keep good balance. Once you are able to pull a smooth manual for a good dozen or so feet, try what’s known as a “G-turn” by executing a sweeping turn while in the manual position. G-turns can be heavily modified to link tricks and create graceful lines to impress the neighbors with your longboarding skills. Try practicing without moving by walking your board in 180s until you can perform them on a slow roll, thus achieving the hearty “big spin.”

Off the Ground

While some smaller longboards may allow you to “Ollie,” most will require a little more ingenuity in order to catch some air. A simple precursor trick is the “shanker,” which is done by pushing like a “Nollie” on the nose and jumping – giving the impression of a slight pop. Deeply bending the knees and grabbing the board with one or two hands, longboarders can pull the board upwards as they jump to hit the famous “early grab.” Pros can often clear a foot or two just with practiced early grab technique and a bellowing grunt. Instead of pulling the board into your feet, jump first and then let the wood follow, and make sure to keep the board balanced, grabbing just forward of the center to avoid driving your nose into that hard, hard cement.

Another slightly more difficult way to catch some air is by hitting the “boneless.” This skateboard trick involves grabbing the edge of your board behind the front truck with one hand and using your front foot to actually kick off of the ground. While it’s tricky on a heavy board, planting your body for a quick moment on the pavement opens up a world of longboarder tricks like the “boneless kick-flip” or “boneless shove-it,” when you jump and toss the deck in a 180 and then land smoothly to cruise off into the sunset. Experiment with placing your hand at different angles or sides of the board to adjust the leverage and open up new possibilities.

Reaching Longboard Nirvana

One of the great things about longboarding is its relative freshness as a sport. New tricks and ideas get inscribed into the Holy Book of Longboarding each and every day, giving riders new foundations to build upon and be inspired by. Try making up your own tricks and sharing them with fellow riders and in turn learning from them to expand your vocabulary. Practicing is all about having fun and changing the way we ride, and nothing feels quite as good as finally landing that epic trick and realizing that you can achieve what you once thought impossible.

The Newbie’s Guide to Longboard Lingo

Posted By: Pete Benda

Longboarding, like most extreme sports, defines not only an activity but also a colorful culture and way of life. Out of this way of life and tight social circle has come some seriously distinct style and a slang vocabulary or lingo of its own. This longboard lingo can seem pretty wild and outlandish to those who haven’t spent hours talking shop with those of us who ride, but it can easily be learned and used in order to further explore the great temple of the longboard.

Slip ‘n’ Slide

Longboard lingo evolved somewhat from the vernacular of skateboarders from Southern California and around the world, but it also includes some of its own peculiar jargon that makes it unique in the wide world of sports. For example, breaking traction and performing a slide is commonly known as a “power slide” for skaters, but because of its many variations for longer boards, longboarders refer to it as a “stand-up slide” or just a “standy” for short. When equipped with “slide gloves,” the common longboard gloves that feature plastic or polyurethane “slide puck” disks on the palms, riders can also perform the famous “Coleman slide” or other more extreme forms of turning, braking, or gnarly maneuvers.

The Coleman slide is named after Cliff Coleman, who was one of the sport’s first serious innovators. While not an easy feat, the Coleman slide is performed by placing the front, or “lead,” hand (and slide puck) on the cement and resting the knees together while practically sitting on the longboard. The rear hand is kept flag-like in the air, and the sliding takes place when the rider twists their shoulders and pushes the rear of the board, or “tail,” towards perpendicular with the front, or “nose.”

All of these slides and other artistic maneuvers fall under the category of “free riding.” Simply, anything that makes the skater look like a surfer carving a wildly frothing wave can be considered free riding. After a rider gains enough experience to confidently conquer a hill, they can attempt to bomb it again and again while adding more artistry and grace.

Without the Hills

Another fountain of flamboyant longboard lingo springs from the tricks we can perform on flat ground. While unofficially, tricks such as the trenchfoot, double rainbow, hippy jump, and toe side no-tap 180 certainly exist, I’ll explain a few more common flat ground tricks that might be a pinch more common than a double backwards Peter Pan/

Perhaps the most common longboard trick is the “shove-it,” which for technical skaters signifies when you kick your board to spin 180 degrees while your body remains in the same position. Your tail becomes your nose, and your body doesn’t change its orientation. If your body also changes orientation with the board, this trick would be considered a classic “180.” Most skateboarding tricks, such as an “ollie” or “kick flip,” can also be performed on a longboard but can be difficult due to its size and weight.

Even surfing terminology has made its way into longboard lingo: A “hang-ten” means literally to put both feet on the nose of the board with all ten little piggies wiggling off while the body assumes a position like Kate Winslet in the Titanic movie.

Now that you’ve taken a look at the dictionary of longboard lingo, it’s time to ride. Keep in mind that most of us who work at skate shops can also explain any technical lingo involved in the actual longboards themselves. Have fun, always wear a helmet, and keep practicing those tricks until you can rock a line of giant step grab kicks followed by a kaleidoscope honey butter!

The Proper Way to Bomb a Hill – Safe Downhill Longboarding

Posted By: Pete Benda

For surfers, nothing could be more enchanting than an enormous cresting wave. For snowboarders, it’s mammoth alpine peaks that seem to scratch the heavens. And for us longboarders, nothing is more seductive than the slick asphalt of a winding road that plummets at a thrilling incline.

But like all of the challenges and excitement that are behind our love for extreme sports, bombing a hill can be very dangerous and at times life-threatening. Longboarding takes place on the most unforgiving of surfaces, like concrete and asphalt, coupled with perilous dangers such as traffic, road hazards, and the difficulty of slowing your speed, which can often take years to master. While we all love the rush of carving up the street and feeling like we’ve conquered the road, every old rider has horror stories that could have been avoided with a little bit of caution.

The Right Getup and Gear

No matter how cliched it sounds, having a helmet is the most essential safety element to riding any hill regardless of your experience. Make sure your helmet has a certification tag inside and is loaded with comfy pads; helmets are not something you should be picking up secondhand at the flea market. I also recommend knee pads and wrist guards, which are particularly important because of our tendency to stop our falls with our hands. Those nasty broken wrists are the most common hospital injury for snowboarders and skaters. In addition to pads and something solid for my noggin’, I always hit the hills with at least a good pair of jeans, a jacket, and my backpack – which, although it may crush my lunchtime burrito and soda, has protected me from the unforgiving street on a few wild spills.

Also, don’t forget to give your longboard a full inspection before each and every ride. All bearings should be properly lubed, nuts and bolts tested, and bushings inspected for proper tightness and balance. Proper bushings are paramount! Keep in mind that a loose bushing can get pretty gnarly at high speeds, and one that’s too tight will prevent you from proper carving or avoiding that parked car ahead.

Style and Technique

The main difference between a newbie and a weathered longboard warrior is the seamlessness and ease between rider and board. The right longboard can become an extension of your body after years of practice, giving you the skills to handle incredible speeds and maneuvers while in the midst of a downhill thrill ride. Before attempting any hill, you should have a proper grasp of foot-braking techniques and smooth carving styles to prevent dangerous speeds. Sliding is another way to slow down but can be difficult for new riders and on steep inclines. It should be practiced and mastered on driveways before trying it on the road.

Even when not thinking, a good downhill rider keeps their weight low, knees bent and ankles very loose, turning smoothly with their entire body and avoiding those catastrophic speed wobbles that occur when we tense up and overcompensate with our legs. If they do occur, trying carving them out with wide, slow turns and focus your eyes on the road ahead instead of what’s going on below while shifting your weight slightly more over the front truck. Once again, proper bushings are vital!

Get the Attitude

So if you’re comfortable with some basic techniques and you’re all dressed for the part, it’s time to focus on the head games. A wise rider will feel confident when approaching a hill but always do so humbly and after taking the right safety precautions. Always walk the hill before attempting it, judging distances and speeds, keeping an eye out for bumps and hazards, and always planning an emergency exit strategy. Don’t ever attempt hills that end at busy streets or are plagued by traffic. Having a friend or two to scout intersections and stop the occasional car is a great idea and can even save your life. A bit of fear comes with the turf, but if you don’t think you can make a turn or foot-brake at any point during your bomb, spend a few weeks practicing and reassess the situation. Also, try a hill starting from the bottom and working your way up before attempting the “black diamond” from the very top. You’ll build confidence and skill without as much risk to your safety and future as a rider.

Never let pride get in the way of having a good time and mastering your sport. Don’t sacrifice your pads or better judgment to “look cool” or impress your friends. Take a look at the sport’s professional racers: they wear full face helmets and leather body suits and usually have an attitude like a meditating Buddhist monk on top of a holy mountain.

It’s All About Fun

It’s always good to remember exactly why we love the sport of longboarding and ripping up the pavement. I keep in mind that by not bombing a hill with proper safety measures, I could be risking the thrill and good times I love. Most of us longtime riders know plenty of risk-takers who after taking a serious fall have had to sit on the bench while we enjoy our favorite pastime.

But now you’ve got a bit of solid information on how to bomb that tantalizing hill, so do the ground work, practice slow, and ride smart. Study that hill, love it, and most of all, respect its awesome power, just like the surfers who bow to the mighty waves of the Pacific Ocean or the snowboarders who pay homage to the snow-covered giants of the Rocky Mountains.

How To Pick The Best Spots to Longboard

Posted By: Pete Benda

You’ve got your board, you’ve read the blog up until now, and now you are ready to get out there and skate – but where should you go? Obviously, where you live is going to make a difference, but I’m going to go ahead and give you a few pointers on finding prime longboarding locations in your area. I’ll give you a few examples along the way, too, and if you’re lucky enough to live near any of the specific spots I mention, make sure you go check them out, because missing out on prime spots in your area, or areas you may travel to, would suck. What is good and what isn’t is going to be largely a matter of opinion and taste, but some basic things that are good would be a smooth surface, low traffic, and a location that allows skating.

Consider the Terrain

If you live somewhere with only a few hills, the type of riding you can do is going to be more limited than it would probably be in a mountainous area. If you live somewhere like New York City, for instance, you can find some okay hills, but most of what you find is going to be pretty flat. New York City is great for cruising, and there are some areas that hold weekly skates you could check out, but if you’re just getting started, a nice, popular spot in New York City would be Central Park. It’s also worth noting that college campuses around the United States can be great spots to longboard.

Population Matters

Make sure you think about what traffic is going to be like in the areas where you consider jumping on your longboard and going for a ride. Some of the most challenging or exciting longboarding spots are probably roads with at least some traffic that passes through. If you find a great hilly road sure to help you hit high speeds or a road with a series of great hairpin turns, make sure there are no posted laws about skating in the area, and do a little research to figure out at what times traffic is heaviest and try to plan your skates so that you aren’t flying down the middle of a street during those times. Safety matters.

Enjoy the View

While the skating surface matters, the scenery that surrounds that surface can also make a spot worth skating. A tree-covered hill with a smooth road you can skate down can be an experience you’ll never forget, just like cruising a path around a lake during the summer can be the perfect way to unwind after a hard day at work. Figure out what type of atmosphere most appeals to you and see what spots you can find that incorporate at least some visually pleasing features.

Check Out What’s Popular

All over the world, people are getting into sports like ours, though it is still more popular in the U.S. than in some overseas countries. One of the best ways to find great longboarding spots when traveling anywhere on the planet is to check out sites like YouSpots. Currently, more than 14,000 longboarding locations are listed on the map, with more being added all the time. If you’re looking to connect with fellow longboarders or just explore some of the most notable locations on the planet, this site can be a huge asset. You could even add a few of the more unique locations to a longboarding bucket list of your own. Among the top locations on YouSpots are Titan’s Path in Lysebotn, Norway, which boasts 30 consecutive hairpins, and Dades Gorge Road in Morocco.

To Sum It Up

All over the planet, prime skating locations exist, and more are being discovered each day. Figuring out what spots you will enjoy most requires considering a bunch of factors, like the type of skating you do, the population, and, of course, laws and safety requirements. The best way to find great places to skate is to get out there and try some out. Maybe you’ll luck out and discover a great place no one has yet tried to skate. One of the best parts of sports like ours is how easy it is to just grab your longboard and head out the door.

New Arbor Boards: It’s not the Vugenhausen…

Check out the Arbor Prodigy! I jacked this pic from James Kelly's facebook.

I don’t know how many of you guys warmed up to Arbor since they up’ed their downhill and freeride program but first thing I did was set up a Vugenhausen and go shreddin’ with it.  Obviously you can see that this new micro-dropped deck, called The Prodigy, has some striking resemblances with the Vugenhausen.  Also check out those pockets in the concave!  Very sharp angles and man do they look amazing!  They will no doubt be great for getting leverage in slides and cornering.

Heres what we know about The Prodigy so far. Get ready to get stoked!

  • It has 7 wooden plys and 4 fiberglass plys.
  • It is 38 inches long and 9.85 inches wide with a 30 inch wheelbase.

With the team that Arbor has (James Kelly, Kody Noble, Jimmy Riha) I personally find it kind of hard to hate on them.  I was mind blown the first time I rode the Vugenhausen and to this day it is still a happy family member in my quiver.  Also, I am not sure but that also looks like a new graphic for The Assault!  Get your cruise and carve on!

This is what we are up to!

As some of you may know… Portland, and the Northwest in general is notorious for having terrible weather and its about that time of year again when it just starts dumping rain!  Magically, however, we had one day of blue bird skies… so Alex Tongue, Robin McGuirk, and myself went out to get some photos and take advantage of this gift from the Heavens.  Peep the shots.

Sure enough, the rain picked back up where it left off… so I hit up my buddy Zach Boston out in Gresham to check out a garage he knows.  It was kind of wet so we ended up seshing the most dry spot. I saw a million and ten people walking through but not one person got mad and told us to take off.  It was actually pretty sick.  Mellow and chill and we got to do whatever we wanted.  I would like to skate the whole thing when its dry.  Here are some shots!
