It’s been 11 months of hardship and bullshit, but WE ARE BACK! We talk about longboarding freestyle, what we’ve been up to, David’s participation in the World Freestyle Roundup, or is it the Freestyle World Roundup? Whatever. And we talk about longboarding again, and plan a video project.

Frontside 360 Longboarding Podcast 3

In our 3rd episode, we talk about David’s efforts to do flatland freestyle (in the more traditional sense) on a 40″ board, and talk about the challenges of doing that, and some strategies for adapting your longboard skating to that discipline — all inspired by the great Chris Chaput, who used 40″+ longboards in his freestyle routines in the 1970s.

Next episode – ditch skating.
