The Landyachtz El Barbaro Longboard is Here

Landyachtz El Barbaro LongboardLandyachtz has been all about the short boards lately and we are loving them. First came the Peacemaker 36, followed by the Peacemaker 32. After that they made the Ripple Ridge. These boards have been amazing. And this time Landyachtz has came out with El Barbaro! The El Barbaro is an amazing cruiser and we’re beyond happy to have this a part of our lineup. Fresh of the mold presses and ready to be ripped. It was designed by Landyachtz team rider Max Gradmiller and made to do it all. Set it up with Standard Kingpin trucks and Landyachtz Street hawgs and you will never be without this board. Pools, parks, banks, ramps, hills, or just downtown cruising, the Landyachtz El Barbaro will be at your side. Classic shape, classic ride, classy slides. Check one out soon!

This is what we are up to!

As some of you may know… Portland, and the Northwest in general is notorious for having terrible weather and its about that time of year again when it just starts dumping rain!  Magically, however, we had one day of blue bird skies… so Alex Tongue, Robin McGuirk, and myself went out to get some photos and take advantage of this gift from the Heavens.  Peep the shots.

Sure enough, the rain picked back up where it left off… so I hit up my buddy Zach Boston out in Gresham to check out a garage he knows.  It was kind of wet so we ended up seshing the most dry spot. I saw a million and ten people walking through but not one person got mad and told us to take off.  It was actually pretty sick.  Mellow and chill and we got to do whatever we wanted.  I would like to skate the whole thing when its dry.  Here are some shots!

New Fun Product For Y’all!

Surf Rodz IndeeSz!  You know you love a good precision truck, especially when its affordable and isnt RPK!  The IndeeSz are sick and are a very good all around truck.  Surf Rodz is known for having legit product that is fun and interchangeable!  We are super stoked to have these trucks in!  We have the 177mm.   
These trucks are going to perform the best while freeriding.  They have a super smooth and stable turn and lean.  Of course you could throw some double barrels in these guys and set them up for downhill but I think most everyone will get the most pleasure out of utilizing their turn!  Check them out online and then pick a set up!

The Gullwing Charger II’s!!  The Charger 1′s are a great truck in their own regard BUT the Charger II’s are going to put Gullwing back on the map for speed boarding and freeriding.  I took these out right when we got them to see how they ride… my only qualm was the bushings.  BUT I will tell you more about them in a minute.  What I did was replace the bushings to get the desired lean that i personally like… The only reason I personally dont like them is because I am a tall dude and weigh like 215lbs.  The bushings are actually of great quality!  I ended up putting them in some paris trucks that i have on chopped voodoo original with a sicktail on it. (AWESOME SETUP BY THE WAY).  
I am really pleased with the Charger II’s… and i think tons of other people will as well!  I know Louis Pilloni digs them!  

Oh WHAAA????  Halsey Apparel is in too!  The first clothing company for longboarding!  Sport your colors and let everyone know… “Its not wrong to be long.”

Cathlamet Downhill Corral!

Out at the Downhill corral there was a Push race… and what is a push race if Robin “The Leg” McGuirk isnt racing in it?  Naturally he took home the gold and you better believe we were stoked.  But that was just the first bit of good news.  SO as far as events went Daddies Team Riders took home that event!  Thanks Brandon Dejariais’ mom for the pic!

Next We had some boarder cross!  This is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen on a course.  Robin boosted it but there was a collision that ended up taking him out too.  It turned into a scramble for the finish line and Robin finished 3rd.  I bet he would have had it if someone in front wouldnt have taken him out! Next time Robin!!!  But third isnt bad at all So Robin ended up on two podiums, 1st in the push race and 3rd in boarder cross

Boarder cross podium shot!
