KnK Longboard Camp 2018 – The 10th edition powered by KebbeK Skateboards

KnK Longboard Camp 2018 Announcement

Time flies and things change but for now, KnK Longboard Camp remains. It’s a great pleasure to look back to 2009 and see what an iconic event it became over those 9 years and how much impact it made on downhill skateboarders across the globe.

This would have never been possible without the love for downhill skateboarding we all carry in our hearts and without the dedication of everyone who has ever helped us with the organisation. So thank you all for the constant support and for shredding the Bear’s Guts with us.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all very soon at KnK Longboard Camp 2018 powered by KebbeK Skateboards!

Dates & Registration for #KNK2018

The Bear’s Guts is covered in snow right now but soon enough, summer will return to Osilnica and so will we, the riders.

The first week of KnK Longboard Camp will take place from July 23rd to July 28th, 2018 and the second week from July 31st to August 5th, 2018.

The Red Bull No Paws Down race will be held on July 28th, that’s during the first week while Single Set Survivors is currently looking for a new sponsor and it’s scheduled for August 4th, 2018.

The price remains the same; 220 € for a full 6-day freeride including camping with all the amenities. Everything you need for a pleasant stay in Osilnica is already laid out for you; a river for swimming with a rope swing, a restaurant, store, cash machine, post office…We got you covered as usual.

Simon Lechner throwback to the Island trip #steepthroatrip4two

Do you ever think about past skate trips and remember all the good times and the steep roads you’ve skated? Well time sure flies and it’s been almost over three years since we dropped out Steep Throat trip video featuring Simon Lechner, Mariano Conti, Eugenio D’Alò and me, Mirko Paoloni.

We had so much fun on the island that we couldn’t resist going back a second time after a year.

Endless roads with super smooth pavement and unique turns were surrounded by amazing landscapes that made every run we had unforgettable.

Although skating and generally having fun was our main interest, we also found some time to stack some clips and create new awesome shots that never saw the light of day.

Now two years later, Simon Lechner decided to make a small recap of our trip out of those shots. The footage may be considered old now, but there are some shots that just needed to be shown.

For the trip Simon chose his top mount the Javelin by Sector 9 paired with Gullwing Reverse trucks. And although the Island’s pavement offers smooth slides with almost every wheel, he chose to go sideways even smoother with RAD Glide 82a and Advantage 80a wheels.

What made the whole trip even better was the fact that we were travelling with a professional photographer Felix Pirker, who made us look good in every shot he took. Besides that, he also shuttled tons of runs!

Check out the video and enjoy the Island vibes with us!

Cloud Ride Wheels present Claudio Jerico in the Eternal City

Cloud Ride Wheels - Claudio Jerico shredding the Eternal City

This summer I stopped in Rome for a few days to spend some time with the homies from the Majanal Crew. I met up with Claudio Jerico, a member of the crew and together we spent an afternoon testing the Cloud Ride Slusheez wheels Claudio received a week earlier.

We picked up Mariano Conti right after he finished school and drove to the only spot they have in town. The spot offers a pretty mellow run with a few hairpins with f****ed up concrete, a metal gully and numerous cracks on the road. But as Rome skaters say – skate it or hate it!
