Early in the spring we kicked off a new Yoga series here at Flatspot Longboard Shop thanks to the help of Unity From Within and Samantha James leading our sessions. The goal is to provide a safe, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for our community to come practice and enjoy the benefits of yoga. We want to help create opportunities for better overall wellness and mindfulness in our community so we can all have more fun skating through the season. // read more
While Tuesday Techslide Sessions never died off in winter, the longer, dryer, warmer nights of spring have brought a resurgence of skaters out to the spot to have some fun. Sure we call it Techslide, but truely the session is open to soft and hard wheels and skaters of all age and skill level. A regular weekly session at the same spot makes for a reliable place for skaters to gather and meet to work on skills of all kinds, including some extremely talented locals who frequent the gathering. // read more
It seems Vancouver is not the only city in our local area working out the details of a new skate park. With Vancouver Plaza under fire with new developments in the area, New Westminister’s Queensborough Park is in the midst of debating their new home and it now seems the City of North Vancouver (home of our beloved City Fest) is now going to redevelop the Lonsdale Skate Park and is looking for feedback. // read more
It’s a dark and dreary Saturday here in Vancouver and the shop couldn’t be quieter. That’s not a complaint, I’m actually stoked to have a bit of time to rip through some photos from a previous wet weekend and post up a few favorites. // read more
Techslide Tuesday has been happening pretty much all Winter, but it takes a special kind of masochist to throw themselves to cold pavement in the rain and in the dark. Big ups to everyone who did make it out over the darkest and wettest days of the year, you’re the real MVPs!
For those that need a little more light and warmth, the season is on it’s way and the past few weeks have been both dry and receiving of a sun-set as the session gets going. The session has been growing in numbers and lasting a bit longer. Now is definitely the time to get out and put some work in if you have any plans to hit up the Danger Bay Slide comp just a few short weeks away. Registration opened today on April 1st, not a joke!
