SaltSpring Slip N Slide 2017 – Flatspot Longboards

The Slip N’ Slide is the earliest event on the Coast. So its no secret that its almost guaranteed to be raining if not actively snowing. Regardless, its an AMAZING series and a great way to kick off the season. Photo courtesy of Skateslate and Jonathan Nuss.

Salt Spring Island is a fantastic place for a longboard race. Its a small island, with a small town, LOTS of back country roads, and ample camping. Basically, its relatively easy to hold an outlaw and then hide 50-100 people in the woods for the night. Maxwell Kaye is a key driving force behind the event, and generally makes sure everyone is taken care of with the help of other island friends and his totally badass mom. We will absolutely be attending, and are stoked to see what comes of the event.

There is also this hilarious old video from three years ago that shows you some of the courses in this edit from Danny Carlson. And you can see baby face versions of everyone!

Saltspring Island is also home of the Saltspring Slasher

This event is held later on in the summer, and focuses on a single race course rather than several. Last year Mischa Chandler went there in the Cribb Bomb, Flatspot ran the BBQ and gear booth at crash corner, and Laine Jackart CRUSHED this raw run Filmed by Bad Decisions Alex! Which is fitting considering he won the Slip N’ Slide Last year!
