“Muir Skate Team Riders, Will Royce and Ryan Ricker, headed out to Central Mass 6 to see what all the hype is about. We’ve heard so many good things about this event, we had to check it out for ourselves. Needless to say, this is definitely an event you don’t want to miss!”
The NC crew Will Seal (Comet, Hawgs, Action Board Shop), Madison Crum (Valhalla), Jack Traynor, and Phil Skaar went road hunting one day and found the dankest neighborhood in the game. One peak that spiderwebs down into ten downhill runs, with no cars. The only catch is there is giant rocks in the apex of every turn. The obvious thing to do when we found this was to film every single run blind with a fat pack. I REPEAT ALL OF THESE RUNS WERE FIRST DESCENTS! Right after we filmed this the entire neighborhood got repaved with terrible terrible chip seal so don’t go looking for it.
“The Arbor Shakedown is Arbor‘s most versatile board designed to be as functional in a skatepark or on a sidewalk as bombing a hill at 40mph. To demonstrate this we assembled a group of our most imaginative and enigmatic team riders (Brandon Tissen, Casey Morrow, Jasper Ohlson, Tomio Choy, Tom Flinchbaugh, and KJ Nakanelua) to put the board through its paces on every piece of terrain they could find. The result is 8 minutes of riding everything from the dreamy concrete of Windells to the chunky debris strewn back roads outside of Portland, all on one piece of equipment.”
