TBT to #LaLomotaDH

Right now La Lomota DH is the only big race we have in the Dominican Republic, on 2014 we are going to celebrate the second edition of this gnarly race which is held in Navarrete, a small town in the North Coast, my good friend Cesar Pucheu is working hard to make this event a time to remember!

Last year we had more than 40 people racing in the three divisions: Groms, Womens and Open. This is one of the most challenging tracks we have, it has 19 curves and a top speed that reaches around 47 miles per hour.

The date is set and everybody is wondering who is going to be the King of the Hill!

I made a selection of my favorite photos from last year, shot by my homegirls Catherine Goico and Gabriela Sobrino! Peep it, get motivated and COME SKATE WITH US!

Having the road closed made me skate with a lot more confidence than ever before! I had those turns on LOCK!

What makes this hill special is the hospitality that the locals offer us, it’s like no other place I’ve been before. So many kind and humble people stoked on our sport! So supportive and motivated to see downhill skateboarding grow in their area.1097263_389708681157030_1712120443_o
