Loaded and Orangatang Dock Session with Ari Shark – Flatspot Longboards

Nothing is better than a large, uninterrupted stretch of really smooth pavement. Especially for flatland/freestyle and longboard dancing.

The Dock session is for practicing anything flatland/freestyle and or dancing. Its really hard to put parameters around these things. But basically, if it only involves you, a board, and a large expanse of really nice pavement, than we’re set! And ScienceWorld is a particularly nice setting for the whole thing. So come enjoy some fancy footwork, a game of skate, or anything in between.  Huge thank you to Loaded Boards and Orangatang Wheels for sponsoring the event and helping Ari Shark come skate in Vancouver! Loaded also has an amazing series of trick tips to help you get started longboard dancing, binge watch them all here!

All skill levels welcome. If you are looking to add to your bag of tricks or get the basics down, we are here to help, just ask!

Itinerary

Meet at the shop at 8:30pm

Push over to Science World and skate until we get tired

Make sure to bring a helmet!

Demo boards will be available.

For a little inspiration, here is a video of Ari Shark utterly destroying.

Normally dancing isn’t done on boards as small as the Loaded Fattail, but it seems to work just fine for Ari. Almost all of loadeds boards are suitable for dancing and flatland freestyle of one kind or another, just a matter of how you want to swing it. Check out their lineup bellow.
