On May 15, 2010 off the 15 freeway in Poway, Ca a group of around 30 skaters gathered around, antsy, to shred the slalom-style race course designed to test the speed and skill of some of Southern California’s top longboard riders. The top section of the course was set up with cones and opened into a narrow pathway leading down a canyon where riders hit over 30 mph as they set themselves up for a full speed tuck and pinned it to the finish.
Groms also had their own class, but the rules stayed the same, as both groups were able to compete in either a singles or doubles, or both. The singles competition was every man for himself and the doubles competition was designed for riders to team up with another competitor stopping the clock after both the riders made it to the finish line.
This made for a very exciting race as many riders were unable to attain the goal of making through the slalom section without knocking over any cones. A few came back from the finish line with bleeding elbows and ripped shirts, while others riders navigated through the course with style and ease.
