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.
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:

What's virtual tech freeride supremacy without the will to fail and get back up, a saracastic sense of humor, a love of freedom, and a passion for satire? The longboard world may never know.
Skateboarder Decio Lourenco's popularity is soaring thanks to his starring role in a YouTube video that shows him hurtling down a steep mountain road at 68 mph to set off a speed camera. Now the cops in South Africa are after Lourenco for what presumably amounts to reckless driving.
"We've handed over the matter to traffic officials and want him arrested," JP Smith, the Cape Town official in charge of safety and security, told Reuters on Thursday. "The speed limit is irrelevant. He is seen careening down the road in a reckless and dangerous manner."
The video, titled, "Spoofing the Traffic Camera--Longboarding without Limits," has garnered more than 212,000 views since it was uploaded on Jan. 26.
