If you haven’t heard by now that the Flatspot Longboard Shop Highway Jams are back on then you’re either living under a rock or trying to pack and move during the great Stoop eviction of 2017 – arguably more tragic than a Hurricane!
There’s no better way to handle a case of the blues, or avoid responsibility all together, like a Highway Jam. Already stoked? Get more freakin’ stoked. You don’t have to be bummed out or running away from your problems to enjoy a Highway Jam, we’re doing that for you.
Highway Jam XIV hitting the road September 3rd continues the theme of No Brand Days… as in, no one really stepped up to sponsor, but we wanted to do the Jams anyways, so we’re going unbranded this time around. Last Highway jam we headed down Highway 1 and met up with Yardwaste and toured Abby and Mission. This time around, for XIV this September 3rd, we are going to be headed down Highway 99 and getting a guided tour of the South end of the area… we anticipate this will be dubbed the “Run From The Fun Police Tour” as the cops are not always a fan out that way. We have a lot of spots planned, so not to worry.
The format of the event is simple. We jam a full size school bus with as many people as we can fit (which is 50). The bus then takes us all to three or four locations where we skate. We spend a good portion of the day without any access to public transit. That means once you get on the bus, you’re on it till it gets back into the city. So be prepared to get rad and have fun all day!
We supply lunch and water. BUT OUR SUPPLIES ARE NOT BOTTOMLESS. Bring extra water and food! You will not be able to buy food or drinks.
If you’re not familiar, you should definitely check out our youtube channel for some video of past events.
