Imports to Brazil can be cost prohibitive for those just wanting to jump in and get a taste of LDP. Recently she's worked up an LDP shape via a local board builder "BLACKBOARDS" and blogs about it here.

"...As the sky darkened we moved onwards, running from a major storm for quite a few hours!! We skated through light showers of rain for a few hours, but by 11.00 pm on Saturday we were fighting a huge thunder storm, and were forced the trek on foot for 3 hours!! ... sleeping turned into resting our eyes whist enduring a pleasant spluttering of rain to the face! ..."

Maribeth McHugh and Cami Best at the Finish
Racers Paul Kent and Conan Gay on the left
Supporter Jordan Evans on the right

==============================================

23 racers Day1, 15 racers Day2, and 13 made the gauntlet of Day3.

Paul astounded all with a 6:45 finish on the third day in near-100 degree heat.

Conan launched from the gate and stayed with Paul for the first part of the morning, and just behind them was a "peloton" of Joshua, Jeff, Billy, Andrew, and James. Joshua split from this group and made his surge toward the front, then I felt the effects of heat and pace after a couple hours and pulled back a notch, reducing the peloton to three. Jeff, Andrew and Billy stayed together until Cedartown where Jeff committed himself to a faster pace -- and note he was also on the injured list!! By the end, things turned around quite a bit with everyone in the top six throwing down hard.

Greg Feiss pumped to a fast finish on Day1 (as one-day racer), Luke Ayata knocked out most of Day2, with Mario Trujillo pulling him out of a near-exhaustion situation, and a badly injured Marion Karr still had a few pushes to send us all off on Day3. Chadd Hall buttboarded to a 1st day finish with a patented upper-body rubber-sole technique you'll have to ask him about!

Cami Best aiding an injured Maribeth McHugh all the way to the last day's finish summed up the true spirit of the weekend. Unforgettable.

 

Thank you Marion Karr, Skanunu Ken, Rockmart EMT, Chadd and Georgia Hall, all the sponsors who donated time and schwag -- and everyone else who supported this amazing, EPIC race!!!

April Fools Ultraskate 9

"Overall I chalk up both ultras a huge success, due to setting a new PB in Seattle, and for being part of Jo's highly successful charity Skaiti by lending some energy, skating 100+ miles, and meeting tons of stoked skaters from all over Europe. "

"The highlights were having Jack skate along with me on his Illuminati during breaks in the rain, and especially skating alone after dark for hour after hour with some killer tunes to keep me company watching a big yellow moon battling through the clouds. I covered 138 miles in total, slow but steady. "

 

Mr Jim On Longboard

"This is my story of a journey from Northen Thailand all the way down to Singapore. I will do this trip for the love of longboarding, the love of these beautiful countries and amazing people. I will also do this in benefit for childhood cancer foundation, my goal is to raise 50 000 sek, but hopefully I will raise a lot more."

"That's fantastic. I've never heard of that before," said Michael Brooke, publisher of the Canada-based skateboarding magazine Concrete Wave. "I've heard of people pumping ... but that's unusual if they're going for miles and miles."

The Maryland "Rise Up" Crew

Rise Up Blog

"My favorite point at the end of the ride was around 109 miles in when I passed a group of young male teens on the trail. They were hanging out leaning against a building looking at me- here I was a slow, pitiful-pumping, exhausted looking guy ... trying my damndest to go a measly 7 miles an hour. Putting my head down as I skated past, I expected the worst kind of criticism. Instead I got four waves and a "Hey, nice longboard!" After that, I felt great and finished the ride strong with my head held high."
