PUMPOLOGY

As many people requested a "how to" type of pumping video, I'm extracting clips that focus on specific pumping motions. Hopefully these latest video additions help toward that direction. Nothing professional here yet, just trying to get some raw footage out.

Pumping has always been far more experiential than academic to me. After watching and riding with people who've got it down, you attempt, adjust, flail, stop and think, then try again, with small increments of personal discovery along the way. Watch slalom vids and check out the different forms. As you're learning, you've got to throw any reservations about public embarrassment right out the window. Be the clown on the trail, give everyone a laugh and a show. It's a good time and it just gets better.

Personally I find a wide spectrum of ways to pump, and its important to tap into different styles depending on whether you're tackling inclines, flats, or pumping a mellow downhill. Just like a distance runner, you can't sprint the whole thing. Shake it up and experiment. And if you're progressing along and run into some specific incremental block, it's always great to hear whats going on, to compare notes and see if that temporary hurdle is a common one. Every day on the board is an amazing discovery, and riding with different people, you will always learn a little or sometimes even a LOT that you can work into your own game.

LDP Setup Tips - Odiwan from Australia shares the stoke, helping summarize the salient points of setting up an LDP board.
Skateboard pumping commute - a glimpse of the daily ride home, using a minimalist pump for about 1.5 hours.
Eric Lowell pumping UP hill - Eric on the GBomb Dark Matter deck, working his way uphill without a push!
Ian Groovin on the Flexdex Fat Daddy - Ian the Groove Worshipper busts out some sweet long pumps on a Florida trail.
LDP down the Monon trail - Jeff Vyain and friends on what was the earliest LBL Walkabout prototype. I sold it to Jeff and he gave it a TON of love.
Just Pumpin - Combines two of my favorite things: pumping along the trails and cranking some funk / jazz.
Girls on Film - Pump clips from over the years, plus a few cameos including John Holmes, haha!
Pumpin around Tokyo - Out solo on the trails, managed to grab a few clips. Music is by one of my favorite Japanese groups- United Future Organization.
Alki Beach on Go Skateboarding Day - Pumping up and down the boardwalk, freakin' out the locals.

LDP and offset Cyber - Cyber slalom is by regulation a 6-foot center, straight line course. We sometimes mix it up, spacing the cones at 9 feet with 1 foot alternating off the center line.

This video is a mix of some of that, plus random LDP clips out on the trail - and a little Xmas pumping through the house when the family was out.

 

Different Pump Styles - Gareth, Jackman, Stryker, Peters-- just goofin at the garage where we partake in the insanity of shaving tenths and hundreths of seconds on a Cyber slalom course through the wet winter months.

 

Fast Pump Examples - From "The Cell" and Redmond Velodrome. Exaggerated styles using weighting/unweighting, relaxed arm motions.

 

Chomp - A fast cruise around Green Lake one fine morning, weaving through pedestrians, when a dog saw a T-bone steak pumping a skateboard and decided to have a bite.

Pupping! - Skateboards, puppies, girls, and the Tijuana Brass. What more to life is there?

Big Mama - More hill climbing, spring 2005, including tackling the biggest slope on the Burke Gilman Trail, which we call "Big Mama"

MS Skate - 25-mile and 12-mile - July 2005

OTHER STUFF

Munson vs. Peters

Pump vs. Push !!

Dual version of NCDSA's "The Trap."

This online version of racing a nearly-cyber length course without the cones, has only been mildly popular. Making it a head-to-head race is a whole new game.

A fast cruise around Green Lake one fine morning, weaving through pedestrians, when a HUGE dog (much unlike the one pictured) saw me as a T-bone steak pumping a skateboard and decided to have a bite.

Vanc BC slalom!

"Slalom Vancouver 2006 (start to finish in 10mins!)" filmed by Hayato, a local BC ripper!! Race organized by Jeff Bonney and Malcolm Stooke, this was the first time in 30 years slalom was revived in BC, an epic event!

 

Puyallup practice session

Brad, Dan, Corey, Stryker and I found an in-progress subdivision with perfect asphalt. Of course the place is well lived-in now, but it was fun while it lasted!

 

100-cone challenge, in Salem, Oregon 2004. This short clip is Michael Dong and Gareth Roe going at it. Gareth had 4 clean 100-cone runs and Michael and Tay Hunt were the fastest, something just over 20 seconds with cone penalties factored in. A true test of endurance!
