Maryhill
On 8/17/2014 bobbyjimmy wrote in from United States  (75.71.nnn.nnn)

This past Spring I was able to attend the Maryhill Freeride with the help of my close friends. My plane ticket, hotel, transportation and entry fee was taken care of by my skate family. I had a loaner set up from Kyle Wester so I was riding the latest and greatest. Rayne Vandal, Rouge Trucks and the new KW Shredmags. I had my old beat up NJK's and brand new Predator helmet. I hopped on the first shuttle with a truck full of kids I had never met before and could see them checking me out. In today's downhill world kids are very into the latest products and really like to pick apart setups. I was on stuff that made them drool and also wonder "who the hell is this old guy". I had some of my best runs ever at Mary. It felt like the board was hard to crash even when I was close to the edge. I would think about my turn and somehow the board new what I was thinking. I remember flying down the straights full tuck while the pack of 30 or more riders would be fanned out airbraking. The pack drafts were insane with the added tailwinds. I tried to get on every shuttle for another run. There was some rain moving in on Sunday so as soon as the first shuttle fired up I was on it. At the top there may have been 20 of us trying to get a dry run in while everybody else was at the bottom looking at the weather. I looked around at the group at the top, mainly younger kids and told them the sooner we get down the sooner we get back up. I don't know if it was because the old guy said it or it just made sense but they got their lids on fast and we all took off. As I was leading the group down I had a draft partner who wanted to play in the turns. The helmet was pink and she was fast. A run I won't soon forget. Trading the lead all the way to the bottom then exchanging high fives with a girl who loves doing this as much as me. Things haven't changed much at Mary. Sure there's more riders, younger kids, better gear and more girls. The most important parts will never change; the love of our skate family and huge smiles.

Landy Evo rolls into a skateshop...still coming up with a punch line.
On 6/22/2014 robmc3 wrote in from United States  (76.120.nnn.nnn)

So the shop is in da hood on recovery (gentrification) and ya never know what's coming through the door. This guy rolls in on an Evo with 97mm Flywheels and Bear trucks. The official board for downhilling over anything you'd find in the Great White North. Not so good for a young businessman in the hood. The young man loves his set up and I try to clue him in on what this thing is for. Telling him it's not the best for riding sidewalks and turning in the city and so on. He comes into the shop the following day covered in bandages explaining how his hard centers set wheels didn't roll through a storm drain so well. (In so many words) So he lets me know he's into tagging and I have to explain the Evo isn't fun for hopping over fences, it's heavy for spraying on the go. Since he's into tagging and a local entrepreneur I have just the board for him.

Skip Marcotte has been making ReTurn boards for years now and his creativity is sprayed onto every board. This particular ReTurn is a Bacon Skateboard that Skip added his own artwork, sparks to the tail. Painted Mount Hood on the top and bottom. I covered it with Skips Turnco grip and some clear to show off Mt. Hood. Threw some soft 60mm wheels on it and let him know he was pretty lucky to have such a rad ride. This young hustler comes back a week later (more bandages) saying he needs bigger wheels for speed. I go through the routine of "things gonna be sitting to high" or "wheelbite" but he's determined to get some bigger wheels outta the free box. He pulls out a complete set of Kyle Wester's used, coned, practice wheels from Teutonia. Now he already has one of my best friends creations under his feet and wants to add another best friend's wheels to it. I can't help but give him the low down on the down low about how special this board is, to me. It sits like a Tonka truck but actually didn't ride to bad. Kyle worked those wheels down to bout 70mm and shreddin hard didn't bite...yet.

Skateboard World is rad. Here's a board that was on the way to the dumpster, Skip made it a work of art. Kyle's wheels added to the history. Young man wants fast wheels, well here's a set that have been used on the fastest race hill in the World buy the guy who won. Go check out Skip's work at Rip City Skates in Portland or look up Turnco. Wester has his new Pro model coming out from Rayne very soon. I can't wait to see what it looks like.

The wrong person is going to die on Lookout.
On 3/29/2014 robmc3 wrote in from United States  (76.120.nnn.nnn)

I parked at the top of Lookout on a small turnout to start my day. The sun had climbed out of Kansas and began to illuminate the filth left behind by human consumers. Pretty sure it was the humans who had left behind the Fat Tire beer bottles, used tampons, blunt wraps and other human debris. Or was the human debris the culprit? Another sign of human activity was the dollar bill lying on the ground. Now when money appears to me from the ground I look for more, sho nuff another dollar! I thought am I more wealthy for picking up the 2 bucks or would I be more wealthy picking up the trash? I hugged a tree then grabbed my board for my first run down the hill. Now without filming my run you'll just need to take my word for this but I went fast. With no video how can I put music to it so you know I like groovy songs? To let you know I haven't ridden Lookout since Christmas Day so I was filled with glee, warm fuzzies and cheer while screaming Pearl Jams “Breath” (if I knew where it was I would take you there”. Towards the bottom The Beatles “Here comes the sun” then a fox ran out in front of me so I started singing the Mr Fox “watch out” song. Lil diidy I just made up so you know how it goes.

I stopped at the bottom and just soaked in the sun and pure joy of my descent. At about 200 yards I noticed a woman with her dog stop in the road who appeared to staring at me or something about to take me out. I looked around to make sure I wasn't about to get stepped on while she yelled something. As she came closer her first question was “are you skating down this road?” The conversation was still at about 50 yards so I let her know I couldn't understand her and that yes I was skating. Now her follow up was a barrage of “do you know it's illegal?” “you could kill someone” “you have no right to be in my community” more and more statements that gave me an indication of her feelings about downhill skateboarding on this hill. I tried to explain my experience, my regard for safety, my age, my concerns and how they parallel her's but she would just interrupt with statements like “do you live here” or “I almost ran over one of you guys”. She was more than irrate and I asked if she was so concerned about her neighborhood why she was yelling at me in front of their houses at 7 in the morning? I tried to explain why I was on this section of road with my thumb out to hitch back up and do it again but my guess was the last person she discussed this topic with was less than conversational? Our talk had to come to an end when a car pulled over to give me a lift back to the top. I suggested she hop in and maybe come watch just how much control I have and how safe and fun a run down the hill is. Her comment after being invited to come along shocked me. She screamed “I have cancer treatment at noon!” huh? Why? Whuh? A very ugly thought came to mind. I said nothing confused by how her noon oncology appointment had anything to do with how bad I would feel for a person driving if I screwed up and ate a bumper.

Got back to the top wondering will she call the cops and if so to be ready for anything. I tool a toke, sip of coffee and looked for more dollars. I didn't sing this time and tried to stay focused just in case the law showed up. Contemplating what they might see. If I'm just see me standing on the road, no harm no foul. I don't care what's under my arm and if my helmets states “out running your local cops” you didn't see me on it so I wasn't. At the bottom, no crazy cancer lady and no cops so the thumb is hanging in the wind.

While hitching you tend to notice the folks in the vehicles who don't pick you up. Over the course of 10 minutes a dozen vehicles with young kids wearing orange vests went up the hill. Younger looking crew and by the car fulls. In the mix of cars was an obvious tuner vehicle, new Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. This Evo pulls over and I smiled big knowing just what a cool little toy I was about to get in. I had no idea how uncool the driver was. T he guy driving smiled exposing his gold tooth that couldn't have been more of a fashion f aux pas but it was comboed with a silly driving cap. He asked if I was ready to go and maybe I wouldn't enjoy his driving. I laughed asked if I should put on my helmet and put on my seatbelt. He told that he wasn't familiar with this particulair car but he comes up the hill to time his runs. I let him know about how many bikes were on the hill, where the deer were and just how many car fulls of kids just went up. We passed every car on the way up. We may have been going up Lookout at 55mph passing everything and he was all over the other lane. If I had been riding down the hill while he was coming up, you wouldn't be reading this bitchin story. I let him know that he could kill somebody with his driving but he assured me he knew what he was doing and could get over at anytime. So it was ok? People on bikes, jogging and all those orange vested kids could hear that turbo sucking for air and the looks we received by the very people I had been waving to on my runs down were ducking for cover. I just laughed it off not sure of how to tell this guy he was way outta line but maybe he was racing to get to a cancer treatment?

After 3 runs it was time to go open the skateshop and I felt relieved to know that the kids were there to pick up the human debris. Maybe they will find a couple bucks. I used mine to go buy a cup of coffee.

Christmas Day
On 12/29/2013 McTurd wrote in from United States  (76.120.nnn.nnn)

Didn't have much time to skate with running the shop during the holidays and my only down time was Christmas Day. Crazy thing about owning a shop and not having a set up to ride? My old Radikals have been set up on my drag racing board and will retire there. I had my Skunktech so I set it up with a 35 Randal dh baseplate and a 150 hanger on the rear. Upfront a 50 degree with a 170 dh hanger. New Road Rider comp thanes. I tracked snow on the tape and had a puddle on the deck the way down. Kinda fun riding narrow old Randals with my wet foot slipping off in a couple turns. Merry Christmas.

Overlook Drag Races
On 12/3/2013 McKendry wrote in from United States  (71.196.nnn.nnn)

There was way too much going on this week. I thought I could do a quick post about the past few days but, well here's just a quick snap the Turkey blurs. I rode parking garages with a crew that can only be thought of as solid bro's. Seriously trying to describe our crew that night is tough, just solid. On Thanksgiving I was alone for the first time in 5 years. My depression and just how I got there/here/now still looms and made some calls. Thank you for my friends and family for helping me through everyday. While hanging in the skateshop (Park Hill Skates stop by) Rick Kludy walks in. Perfect timing, Rick has a way of brightening a room. So we got to talking racing like we usually do and for those of you who don't know this forum was once "Kludy On Speed". We shared some ideas for the upcoming race in on Sunday. I don't like to close the shop and especially now during the holidays but my issues seemed to be easier when talking skateboard racing. What if I got to race? Maybe even more resolution? While giving Rick the LD on the DL he told he he couldn't race because he didn't have a board. While sitting he my skateshop, he said he didn't have a board. I set him up with a Joshua Weisfield creation I road in Europe that had a Kludyville sticker already on it. Easy enough. I saw the post for a run what you brung event, unlimited downhill design drag racing on Overlook. A perfect scenario for Kerry Dunn and SkunTech. Kerry got to work on my set up with only 48 hours to complete, whatever the hell it was going to be. Now I helped til midnight both nights but he was cutting metal and curing carbon til the sun came up. On the final morning before the event he ad an issue with the tail cone and head create a new one. The clock was ticking and I couldn't keep Rick or I from being on the hill in time for the noon start. We left for Overlook hoping Kerry could finish assemble and haul ass to the hill before my heat. We actually asked Maytum the race organizer to put me in the last heat because my board was enroute. Pretty funny stuff going on at the hill. SOOOOOO Kerry rolls up just in time with this 5'7" Gila Monster looking carbon fiber crafeted thing with a huge steel weight on the bottom. Big wheels and just crazy looking. My first test run on thing is my first race heat with World Champion Jason Mitchell, RACER X! The way Maytum set the start the kick line was short and made the push a great factor. My board didn't like to be pushed and on this first race test run it felt like it didn't want me standing on it. I lost to Jason in the first round and went to the losers side of the page in this double elimination format. As I figured out how to ride this thing and with Kerry's help making adjustment after each run I started winning heats. Now I almost crashed a couple time and every kick was heavy but I advanced top the top 20 only to face...Jason Mitchell! Jason and I stepped over the line each had a photo finish no one could call and rock paper scissored for lane choice. It was a hooot! he won. So yeah too much to tell you about with Kludy, Kerry, Jason, Maytum (who put on a hell of show utilizing Calvin Staub and Justin Rouloe to help him out, World Class Outlaw) My bros showed up and we had a blast. I gotta wrap this up and go do some chores. Thank you guys for making me smile.

Teutônia, Brazil - Carlos Paixao takes 1st place
On 11/19/2013 McKendry wrote in from United States  (71.196.nnn.nnn)

Sure by the time you read this, you'll be here only because your search engine found this while your seeking 2014 info. Well The Boys From Brasile held on to their title and Kyle Wester held on to fourth! William Royce took a spill at 70mph and seems healthy enough to post the video on the net (I've never tried to post a video on this site and I'm getting a headache thinking about it). All the info and results are on the IGSA website.
Most of the downhill scene is slowing for winter and everybody is looking forward to getting through the holidays and then onto Puerto Rico in January. Over the last couple years many of the international riders having been heading to the Guajataka Downhill for warmer temps to skate. The race has had some organizational issues and crowd problems so this year should be interesting when even more people show up.

Teutonia this weekend!
On 11/14/2013 mc3 wrote in from United States  (71.196.nnn.nnn)

This weekend the World's fastest skateboard race will be taking place in Teutonia Brazil. Over the years the race has been well documented and there's plenty of footage out there. Riders shoes flying through the air after the hit the straw bales at 75mph. Riders praying before their run down the steep breathtaking hill that's as smooth as a cheese grater. The hill demands so much and to find a line over the bumps and cracks while trying to draft and make a pass before the finish might require some prayers. Over the years the larger riders seem to do well here. Weight that might give a faster trip? Leg strength? Height, perhaps a longer torsos gives a better airflow? And aerolids don't seem to change the podium position looking at the past results. The battle between K-Rimes and Dalua has always been fun to watch and they have an uncommon friendship when it comes to racing. They have respect for each other like brothers and have added their story to the mystique of racing Tuetonia. Though either Kevin or Douglas have the experience to make it to the top of the podium new riders have begun to make a name for themselves. This black snake of pavement in the jungle of Brasile is now being tamed by riders who have no fear of it's venom (drink Maytum). Last year Kyle Wester won Teutonia handily with the other rider crashing high on the hill. Kyle told me he knew he was going to win because of the demeanor of the rider he faced in the finals. Kyle who was happy to be in the finals just smiled all the way to the starting line which got inside the other kids head. Frustrated with Kyle's giddiness the other rider crashed by pushing it to hard in the early turns. Kyle went on to fly down the hill alone and onto the top of the podium. What's it like to be an American on top of the podium at one of the biggest races in the World? Well apparently if your from Brazil you're pissed! On his way to the podium hay bales and bottle were flung at Kyle. The footage of Kyle trying to accept his trophy for having just done what few will ever do is sad. Not all of his co competitors were upset and not every Brazilian was throwing things, in fact many riders on hand apologized for the vulgar display of sportsmanship. So what happened last weekend in Brasile? The riders have a series of events leading up to Tuetonia and William Royce placed first at last weekends event. William is an incredibly talented rider (that's why he won) who is also a kind soul and very nice young man. Really cool kid like him a lot his attitude is top notch. On his way to the podium several people through large bales of hay at him, pulled his hair and eventually dumped something over him. Other racers began shielding him so he could stand at the top of HIS podium to show them who just beat their ass on their own hill. When I was in Brasile I had to watch my mouth because I was pasty white and nobody liked Americans because our president was killing people around the globe for oil (and I was a bit of a loudmouth.) The achievements of Kyle and Will are great and are to be regarded like all top athletes who work hard at spreading the joy of riding skateboards faster than my car can go. I have friends all over Brazil and hope to someday go back because of the love the Brazilians showed me. The few bad people I would like to think were drunk, maybe had sand in their underwear or just have some sorta weird Tourettes hay throwing disability. Kyle and William are in Tuetonia as I type this and I hope they are watching each others back and paying close attention to the surroundings. It would be the absolute, "Oh my god that just happened" moment to see them finish one and two somehow. Then the race would be to get out alive! GO GET EM BOYS!

It doesn't get old.
On 11/2/2013 McTurd wrote in from United States  (67.162.nnn.nnn)

I hear constantly on how I should run my skate shop and hear all the misconceptions about what I'm doing. People have asked how I can have a downhill specific shop with no hills. Spoiler alert, I have been cranking out short boards. I don't have everything to appease every skater and probably never will. What I do have are beginner boards. My market seems to be kids who are buying their first skateboard. I sold 2 kids their first boards today. Do you remember your first skateboard? I do. To be part of a child's life and potentially their memories of skateboarding is almost rewarding enough to forget about the shop surviving. The kids who's boards I assembled today had such a desire to roll away from the shop and down this new skateboarding path I was part of. Support my local skateshop! Skate and enjoy.

Too many races!
On 10/13/2013 McKendry wrote in from United States  (67.162.nnn.nnn)

This weekend...Slalom Championships, Broadway Bomb, Columbia, Ohio and outlaws abound. There was a time when you had to wait months for one race and now It's tough to decide where to go. My choices are easy...working in the shop!

I've done the BOMB and the slogan of that race is "you could die". I hit a cab, rolled over the trunk and met my board on the other side and kept going. supa fun!

I got a shiny trophy from Ohio once.

Huey’s Colorado experience before Buffalo Bill

May 6, 2011 in Travel Diaries by Jon Huey

While the skate bus chugs along threw the mountains to get to Colorado, I have been living it up since my arrival at the Denver International Airport on Wednesday afternoon. We’re all coming to Denver of course for the Buffalo Bill Downhill race. I got here a little early to have some fun and experience Colorado!

Rob McKendry picked me up and his parter had dinner ready for us. Food was scarfed in anticipation of some fun times at a Flogging Molly concert. I recieved backstage access and treated as friends with the band backstage.

Flogging Molly in Colorado Springs

The accordian player is Matt Hensley, an OG pro skater. I got to meet him back stage because my friends new him. It was a great time conversing about limited edition boards, skateboarding, music, and the east coast.

So It's been too long since any updates from me...Cathlamet was amazing and can't say eno ugh about the people skaters and all involved. PIKES PEAK was insane and thanx to NHS AND Roadrider for bringing me on to announce. My life has been rocked this year and I want to thank all my friends for being there and here for me while I try and ride this wave. I wish wish and wish but my reality isn't what I expect ed. I have been homeless now for a few months and will be trying to hold onto my sanity well what's left. Please take care of each other and remember that family is family and love isn't easy to come by. I hope they're all safe tonight. I miss them.

This will be the 5th year for the Cathlamet Downhill Corral and with all the new disciplines added over the years a new event name may be in order. The downhill was always been the big draw but after the addition of boardercross and BIG air the riders need to pick just how they would like to abuse themselves. The 7.5 mile push race should give you rubber legs just thinking about it. The slalom events have been drawing more and more skaters every year. World Cup Slalom racer and course designer Skip Marcotte sets up the "Sidewalk Challenge" taking the skaters to the edge of every cone. I have been the announcer every year for the downhill and have been able to witness the greatest skaters in the world battle right to the finish. The winners of the past years are some of the best riders on the planet. Switzer, Kelly, Tounge, and Martin have all won at Cathlamet. Looking at who they beat to get there makes their victories even more impressive. Cathlamet is now a destination race with multiple events attracting the best skaters in the world. This event is a giant lovefest between the skaters, towns people and organizers that is an example for other events to aspire to. I can't say enough about how this event has done for skateboarding, longboarding and so many other aspects of peoples lives. Some of us only get to see each other once a year at Cathlamet. We catch up, laugh, share about the last year of our lives and can't wait to see each other next year for Cathlamet 6. Don't miss your chance to be part of this amazing event and see how it will change your outlook on skateboarding, life and friendship.

I fell in love again

I have lost another friend. I am sleeping on a cot. I scare the children at the local pool when I show up to swim because it's the means I have to bathe. I don't have the tools to eat very well because the kitchen for a skater is the dirty nuker at the M T Mart. I have to clean my bloody shins in the sink at the same gas station the whores use between tricks. PBR tastes really good. My heal is black from posting it first hard off a launch ramp. Dropped in for the first time in 30 years and it was like my first kiss. I new opening a shop meant being more than a speed boarder. I had to become a skater and I now realize how I underestimated the conviction. Skaters are like no others. Having the warm fuzzies again over just what the paint brush under my feet wants to paint makes the hygene issue laughable. I want to save my pennies for 4x8's. I own a trowel and look forward to doing some late night repairs to the parking lot in front of the shop. (Park Hill Skates Denver). So I can't put into words how good it feels to have a bruised heel and still look forward to hitting the park at sunrise so I can kiss her again. I turn 43 Tuesday.

My life has taken another upsetting turn and the only cure is taking another turn.
