The third installment of Somewhere In Spain is live! In this new edit, William Royce smashes some of the fastest lines the mountains of Spain have to offer.
This summer we sent team riders Max Ballesteros, and William Royce to skate and film with teammate Toti Bicicleta along with Perropro and the crew at Salsito House in Spain. From their 10-day adventure, Perrorpro captured a series of short videos and raw-runs that we will be releasing as they are produced.
Master of longboarding cinematography, PerroPro decided to create a unique adventure, not centered around skating, but exploring and discovering Spain on skateboards. Traveling over 2,000km in 14 days, Bruno and Toti take you to places long forgotten across the farthest reaches of Spain. Oh and the skating? The teaser speaks for itself.
Coming this fall.
You know that park down the road from your crib, the one with the big hill and paved road? Grab your Bustin Boards Longboard, gloves, pads and go for a rip! Bustin Flow Team Rider David Driscoll of West Michigan knows what to do, follow suit! Watch this video as David effortlessly slays a shred-worthy hill on his skateboard in Grand Rapids, Michigan. What are you waiting for? Go Skateboard.
Distance skateboarding is cool, most people can do it, young and old. Find a paved trail, bring a skateboard and go for a rip, bud. You decide how far you will go, you decide when to finish. It’s Easy. I described the fundamentals of Distance Skateboarding in pictures from this morning’s rip, 11 miles there-and-back on the White Pine Trail in Rockford, Michigan.
1. Get up early and eat a good breakfast.
2. Have a chill if you prefer, then get out for a rip bud.
3. Switch-up your pushing leg every-so-often, skate proportionally and stay aero, bud. Use your arms to carry momentum and circulate yer blood.
4. Optimal distance push position is foot forward just rear of the truck bolts. Raise yer knee high when you pump and extend your toes when you push. Use yer entire leg muscles for best momentum, power, aerodynamics and performance.
5. You just went for a rip, bud. Take a selfie. It’s also a good idea to download Map My Run on your smart phone and track your performance. The app is free and really allows you to understand how you perform in all conditions and on all terrain.
If yer skating a there-and-back track, set a personal goal and achieve it. Mine was 5 miles, averaging 12.2. This is my first push in some time, so I eased into it. Skate however you prefer.
During the return skate, I kicked it in a bit to see what juice I had left. Felt good. 11 miles is pretty chill. I skated 6 miles back and averaged 13.7mph. Almost competitive! 14-17mph is the average speed of the fastest guys on flatland. Add some hills and some guys will average 24mph. Pretty quick!
The best part of Distance Skateboarding is you feel like a CHAMPION. I recommend it. Get out for a rip, bud. I prefer the Bustin Boards Maestro38 with 70mm-75mm wheels for Distance Skateboarding. The end.
