Landyachtz released their newest wheel recently called Hawgs Tracers. What's so special? They. Dump. Thane. So much, in fact, that it might as well be chalk, because these wheels will show you your every slide, every time. They're centerset and come in 4 different colors: green, orange, yellow, pink, and teal. In fact, since these wheels only come in 78a duro urethane (did we mention they DUMP thane?) at 67mm in height, you can mix and match colors to your heart's content. The only question remains: since they dump thane, won't they core quickly? Answer: yes, yes they will. So is it worth it? Well for $39 a set, it's a bit pricey since they may only last you one or two hardcore sessions. It's up to you if it's worth painting your favorite hills for just under $40. Check out the wheels here.
Big pipe, big jumps, big air, big spins.
The competition in Laax for the 2015 Burton European Open presented by MINI really heated up this year. Even with some snowy conditions, the aloha vibes were strong from both the riders and spectators alike. If you weren’t able to catch the live webcast, here's a compilation of all of the top highlights from the entire week.
This is a pretty crazy video. Louis Pilloni, one of the most favored riders in the longboarding world and member of Skate House Media, bombs a gigantic mountain road with extreme steez, throwing in freeriding moves and handling several turns in switch. This guy really has some extreme talent. This video is a ridiculous 14 minute long raw run, so you better grab some popcorn for this one.
Skate House Media had this to say about this incredible run:
