This is it everyone. Rimba Alam Downhill Jam 2013 will be the first ever official 
longboarding event to take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It will be a two-day event over the weekend held in Putrajaya and will consist of a downhill race and a slide jam. We are already talking to the local authorities to get this event sanctioned.

Check out the track preview:

Here’s the best part, we’re also talking to the management at Putrajaya Challenge Park to allow us to camp overnight during the race. That’s right, the first day of the race won’t end at the hill. Enjoy BBQ for dinner, skate some bowls or even the freeride hill to unwind.

Here are some videos of PCP by Syamly to get you going:

We’re hoping to get everyone from all over Malaysia together for this event. Let’s all work together to grow the local scene and show everyone the awesome hills and talented riders we have here!! And of course we hope to see our brothers and sisters from around the world attend this too!


So here are the details of the event:

Date: June 22 & 23 (Saturday and Sunday)

- Race practice, qualifying heats and slidejam (June 22)
- Race practice, race, prize giving ceremony (June 23)

Venue: Taman Rimba Alam, Putrajaya
Registration fee: TBA

*Included in your registration fee will be a sticker pack from the event sponsors, lunch coupons for both days, free accommodation and an event t-shirt for early birds. More to be announced!


About the downhill race:

In the interest of time and to make sure everything runs smoothly, we will be limiting the race to 56 participants ONLY.

Riders will be randomly seeded into qualifying heats and the top two riders will race in a Class A race, while the bottom two riders of each heat will be in the Class B heats. That way, everybody gets to race!

Safety rules: Helmets, Knee pads and slide gloves are MANDATORY if you want to race. We're also applying a no skin policy which means you gotta be fully clothed, long pants and long sleeves.


About the slidejam:

Best trick, longest standie, biggest air, etc.....more details to be announced soon! There will be no limit to the number of participants for the slidejam.


If you have any questions or would like to sponsor/support or help organise the event, drop us an email at or contact any of the admins (Adam, Izzy, Farhan, Ching).
