PUTTING THANE ON TARMAC SLIDE CLINIC / SESSION

Now that everyone has gotten a taste of DH, we figured it would be a good idea to hold a slide clinic to get everyone familiar with the basic safety slides that can be done to stop/slow down when going down a hill. The very basic of them being the Coleman slide, and check slide.

So if you feel you still haven't gotten basic slides under your belt then its about time you do! Those of you who feel that you can do them with your eyes closed, well there's always tweaking and perfecting to be done and also other kinds of steezy slides to pull off!

Either way, you'll bound to learn alot when you skate with others, so lets fucking skate!

WEAR your HELMET - LGM

Date: 12th Feb 2011


Here's a couple of slide session video for both slide board (shortboard) and longboard
