Normally, the streets of Norwich are bustling with shoppers and workers, with elbow room only in the city centre. Ok if you’re an expert at carving and, er,stopping….Not worth the hop-on-hop off for an ordinary day’s cruising. The pavements call, however. Especially around the Forum and the Market. Perfect for gathering some speed and practicing turns…. So late on Easter Sunday night, we headed into town to claim the streets which are normally too packed and policed to negotiate….

West Vancouver Police say they are aware of concerns being expressed on social media after a video of a confrontation between an officer and a group of longboarders went viral.
The video, posted Sunday by Danny Carlson, shows two longboarders heading down a steep hill on Finch Hill Road last Wednesday, filmed from a camera mounted on the third longboarder.
In the video, the group rounds a corner where they are met by a West Vancouver Police undercover cruiser with its lights flashing. All of the longboarders fall to the ground in an apparent attempt to avoid the cruiser.
The man in the video tells the officer: “It’s definitely the most dangerous thing I’ve been involved in.”
The unidentified officer responds “All I did was slam on my brakes, [inaudible] fricken’ longboarders.”
The man says “You twerked in front of our lane,” before being interrupted by the officer who says…

A sad fact that we all have to face at this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere: winter is nearly over.
Instead of crying into our pillows and spending our days waxing our snowboards, watching videos of ANYONE shredding on the youtube and vimeo, sleeping in till noon because mornings are no fun when there’s no snow… NO MORE. we decided to take action. 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! 🙂
