Meet the main sponsors: Lush Longboards (Cult Wheels to follow in the morning)

Media dump #1 "photographic evidence" will happen tomorrow! If you want your album/photo page mentioned on the blog, get it up on the H'fest Facebook, or tag your photos #skatehogtober in Instagram - there's other Hogtoberfests, but there's only one Skatehogtober!

Slalom report and podium rundown will happen over the weekend - so look out for the full list of what was won by who.

And now, to the main event of today, The sponsors!


Chopping wood since '99 (as their latest logo proudly displays), Lush have been supporting the UK Scene for a long time. Back in the bad days before people slid soft wheels, pretty much every UK longboarder rode Lush; boards pressed in an industrial unit in Sheffield during the early 2000's were hand finishing and numbered and this batch production was the start of  what was to become a globally recognised brand. They are currently producing very technical layups in a myriad of 3D concaves they could have only dreamed about before their move to Bristol and their huge expansion since. Their latest product teasers are for the Symbian 3D and Chopper 3D, which can be found right here for your viewing pleasure. Both boards feature some awesome concave/rocker combos, and the chopper is touted as a "quiver killer" - you can see why!



Lush sponsored us with 2 sets of their very successful white race gloves (they make other coloured gloves as well) and 2 of their most popular boards: the Steezestoker - a un-kicked freeride deck usable for pretty much everything, and their Machine 80's (with the rad Gonz homage graphic) with it's kicktail making it a skate everything board (pictured below, left to right if you've never seen them before.) Well done to Alex Clarke, #1 in the Groms, who won the Machine, and Joe Balwdin, #1 in the open who won the steezestoker.

  2. I want to learn how to do one or the other. I don't live near a local skate board shop or skate board park either. I live in an apartment area with a fair amount of ledges and steep roads and straight roads though. How much should a longboard cost? How much should a skate board cost? Is it necessary to buy the helmet and pads to wear really? Which one is easier, or which one is more worth it. Is it ok if I buy a board online?

  3. Longboarding is a sports activity that's developing with attractiveness. This aboard accustomed to longboard is a stylistic and sensible melding with the surf and skate aboard. Formulated for the Western world Coastline in excess of 50 years ago, longboarding has been around for quite a while.
