FS360 Podcast: Ep3

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.

FS360 Podcast: Ep2

In this episode David compares traditional flatland freestyle with longboard dancing, and we talk about this video from our blog (you might want to skip the first couple of minutes). Bob remembers the early videos of Adam Colton and boards of Longboard Larry!

Speaking of Adam Colton and Adam Stokowski, HERE is one of those videos, from 13 years ago, that really started the longboard dancing craze. Frankly, I still like the way the Adams do it. They are riding the homemade boards that led to the Longboard Larry Oldschool Dancer.
