So it’s sadly been a little while since I’ve updated this blog… oops. Lately Seever and I have been skating as much as possible and it’s been rad! Yesterday we woke up and saw that the sun was shining, so we drove out to hit Slug Slayer (The dump road), a twist jagged road that’ll get you up to about 65 km/h. It was our first time doing anything like that in a while so it was a ton of fun! I drove Seever up to the top of the hill for his first run and told him to get out and grab his lid, gloves and board, and then I drove and parked off to the side in the middle of the hill and waited to see how he would do with it. I wish I filmed it. I remember watching him coming around the corner with a total…

If you haven’t seen them online or at one of St. Petersburg’s daytime markets, such as February’s enormously successful Localtopia, you’ve probably seen them under the fresh kicks of one of St. Petersburg’s many longboarders as they zip down the side of a congested downtown street.
This Saturday, Local Longboarding Company, owned by St. Pete woodworkers/skater dudes Jon Stine and Travis Hise, establishes its presence even more firmly with the opening of a storefront at 659 Central Ave.

A sad fact that we all have to face at this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere: winter is nearly over.

We decided to invest in a shiny new longboard and lose our longboard virginity, dust off the skates and get ready for summer! Here’s what went down…
Longboarding. I know many people haven’t heard of it but longboarding is another form of skating, just with a bigger and wider board. Most people use longboards for cruising at the beach but can also be used for downhill races and sliding. Although you can’t do as many tricks as you would do on a skateboard, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any you can’t learn. Most people learn how to slide with a longboard, which is basically drifting, but there are different kinds of longboards which differ in shape in shape and size that allow you to do allot more different tricks than you would on a skateboard.
They like me! They really really like me! 🙂
