Do you often ride skateboards?



I do ride a sk8 board , I used to manage a sk8 shop and sk8 ramp and street..., but now days I have a board with a super loose front truck called a street surfer It is like riding a surfboard , no pushing you can just pump it and gain speed....



Island Slalom Tour is a series of skateboarding contests on tiny french islands where nobody has ever skated! We are as Captain cook at Hawaii in 1600! Except we have now motor boats and concrete roads... What do you think about this?


your island slalom tour sounds really cool watching those guys go round those corners at that speed is crazy... especially when the road hurts so much more than water. 1
