Houyet

26Apr

We went to the Houyet freeride this weekend. It rained a lot, so the skating was limited but it was good to catch up with everybody again and we still managed to have fun.

Check out facebook for lots of wet skating the “party photos” and this write up by Will Clare was was a last minute passenger in our convoy for the weekend.

Fun times… next freeride will hopefully be a bit drier…!

Fun with a radar gun

This weekend we went hill hunting again… this time armed with a speed trap and remote readout that Mike at Octane Sport lent us.

The Elusive Mr Vanstone, Sunday kicks!

We’re not sure how accurate these readings are, and actually at the end of the day who cares, but we got some blog-worthy photos so here they are.

Find the draft… Rob Borek, John Griffiths and Matt Elver getting it done

Rob’s new leathers are pretty tasty! Yeah bra!!!

Freeride

12Apr

Here at Lush we have a slightly different definition of “freeride” to most people.

To us it’s much more than a label to describe “sliding on soft wheels,” as is common these days. When we talk about freeride, we mean “ride free.”

To call yourself a “freerider” means that you are unhindered by the terrain, a certain mindset or even your setup. You are free to skate however you want, wherever you want. It’s the ying to racing’s yang.

To us the perfect freeride board is one that will let you be as free as possible. Everyone likes different things from their freeride setups, but we feel that we have got pretty close to perfection with the Machine. Ramps, parks, street, downhill, sliding, slalom even – this board really does deserve the title “all rounder.” Look out for one on a hill near you soon…
