Title: Longboarding

Silverfish Longboarding
  • Bainbridge, Ohio
  • The worlds top street-luge, gravity bike,
    classic-luge, inline, and stand-up downhill
    riders converged once on the small town of
    Bainbridge, Ohio over the weekend of October
    14-16th. Nearing the end of the IGSA World Cup
    series for 2005, the pro riders showed up in
    force, seeking the ever-important remaining World
    Cup points and to take their shots at the season
    title. Points racing aside, this three-day event
    brought the best of the best out to ride, race,
    and party. On roads closed by local government,
    and lined with over 1200 bales of hay, the 1.2
    mile course challenged both new and experienced
    riders alike with a mix of long fast sweepers,
    hair-pins, and chicanes which sent lugers on a

  • If you are extremely crazy, powersliding is the

    These can be homemade or bought.

  • To show off As your flying down a road you see
    some chick walking her dog. Figure the extreme
    speeds and sense of uncontrole will make her
    totally dig you? Well it will. Just dont hit her.
  • To do a slide you should start with a 180 degree
    coleman. To do slides you must be VERY committed.
  • First get a moderate speed.
  • Next bend down and get ready to grab the side
    of the board that is in front of you.
  • You will want too lean as far back as you can
    without flipping over and put your other hand on
    the pavement (You will have gloves. I will
    explain later) and put most of your weight on
    your hand. You will be whipped around.
  • As soon as you do the 180 pull your hand off and
    stand back up.

LongboardMore than just a big skateboard.
  • Obviously longer than your standard skateboard,
    Longboards also have bigger and softer wheels
    than their "new school" short board brothers.
    Meant to cruise, longboarders enjoy a smooth ride
    and total control on a deck that can be more than
    six feet long! The original "gravity sport",
    downhill (speed board) and slalom longboard
    competitions have been thrilling spectators for
    years. What is more extreme than bombing a hill
    on a longboard at speeds over 40 mph?
