Octane Sport will be rocking Hogtoberfest as the main Slalom Sponsor, bringing ramps, timing and cones to the regular slalom hills.
Michael Stride, the seasoned slalom champion and online skate shop owner, has been bringing the Octane timing system and ramps to Hog Hill and supporting the event since it's early days. You'll normally find him with the mobile Octane shop over by the slalom hills making sure everything runs smoothly and no-one gets up to anything funny during their runs. Octane Sport as a shop has provided a wide range of boards, parts and hardware to all disciplines within scene for a number of years now, everything from basic mindless rippers all the way through to airflows, the latest Pavels, precision trucks, and a range of bushings that will make your eyes water. If you've seen it in a video recently, Octane Sport probably has it somewhere on the website. Go check it out!
