Inside the mind of a downhill skater… Pete Connolly talks racing


Pete Connolly has been hooked on downhill skateboarding for a long, long time. His drive to go as fast as possible on his skateboard has led him all over the globe, and made him many friends. A need for speed as strong as this can only be satisfied by racing… We asked Pete for his thoughts on longboarding, downhill, racing and..

Recently we have seen some UK pumptracks getting a full tarmac.. Read More

It’s been pretty hot out in Portugal recently so with that in mind Pernes felt the need to go find himself a little cover. Knowing exactly the spot to hit he grabbed his Lush Longboard  and set off for one of his favorite local spots.
