|Oscar and Dan (team riders) on the |
start line at Hog
Right back on the first Hogtoberfest, back in 2010, one of the first brands I approached about sponsoring a speculative fledgling event with around 100 riders, was Mindless Longboards. In the years to come, Mindless have supported every Hog Hill, come rain or shine. Over those years they've diversified, improved, innovated, grown and now have three big UK names on their books, having picked up man/myth/legend Oscar Taylor in the last couple of months.
In the past I've raved about the Hamu dancer (I now own one) as an amazingly cheap (sub £200 complete) dancer that can stand up to a good kicking and rides great without having to swap bushings out. This time round Mindless are chucking us a Makali DH amongst other things. The Malaki boasts rocker, concave, CNC shaping, different wheelbases amongst other things, with a huge amount of consideration into making it a "downhill/freeride monster"
Based in the UK, The guys from Mindless also skate - you can normally meet Rudee, Martyn, Andy and ther team photographer Michael (If I remember correctly) at the Longboarding for little Hearts Santa Cruise joining in the fun on their boards.
