Dublin Pearse D’Arcy wins “King of Huku”, a 2-man heat race on huku hill on the 14th of November. For anyone who hasn’t skated it or seen it before it’s narrow 5 corners and around 55 kph. There were a lot of potholes but they filled them in but it’s still rough in a few sections. The heats were picked by names pulled from a hat and the winners progressed. Pictured: Pearse showing his mean face!

“100% Pure. Grade A. Quality Skateboarding.” – Mike Dallas
“While waiting for the races to start in Colombia, we went to the top of Guadeloupe in a Taxi and then Skated all the way down. all together it takes about 20 min to make it all the way down. the top section has very bad pavement which makes you almost fall at every moment. the middle section has perfect pavement but a lot of traffic. The bottom has bad pavement and bad traffic so its always a challenge making it through the bottom.” -Bill RiceRead More
Hey cats and dolls, hope you’re all ready and registered (or about to register) for the 3rd annual ACME Downhill Race! We’re proud to be partnering with the Bergen County Bombers to bring you this years main event – The IDF World Qualifier ACME Downhill!
The Bergen Bombers started this event back in 2013 and it pretty immediately became a success. The nature of the hill, mid-40 mph, with 2 hair-pins, little road traffic, and close proximity to NYC led to a gem of a hill that is easily reached from the Big Apple.
This year the organizers have worked with the IDF sanctioning body and for 2015, ACME is (in addition to a rad course and a hell of a good time) an IDF World Qualifier race. That means points for all of your competitive folks!
Here’s the famous skate Dad – Mike Girard – taking a run from top to bottom!
HOWEVER! Not all who race must be pro! This weekend ACME provides not only high-level racing and competitors from across the entire spectrum of downhill skateboarding, but also an opportunity for more recreational riders as well. All Friday, open skating of the hill will be available to all registered for the Freeride. No leathers, no IDF membership needed, just bring your waiver, safety equipment and Freeride registration and you’re clear to skate!Read More
