The recent spring Maryhill Freeride was blessed with consistent tail winds all weekend, so the hill was unusually fast and the pack riding was a little more subdued. Still, there was plenty of the silliness and sketchiness that the event is known for, so sit back and enjoy this compilation of clips Madrid put together. Special thanks to Scoot, Cord Brown, and Lee Gilmar for the additional footage.
Check out these 6 runs from the Guajataka Slide Jam over this past weekend. The road was lined with spectators watching some of the best slide jam action to date. For SkateHouse coverage of Guajataka over the years click here.
Aggressive spectating at the Menlo Park Skate Jam. Skip to 2:00 to see a fat guy get a concussion.
Adam “Awger” Auger battles Aaron “from the block” Grulich for one-handed toeside supremacy.
While we certainly dig the laid-back, noncompetitive atmosphere at freerides, if you’re going to shut down a sick hill for three days you might as well have a race and see who’s fastest.
Summerland native “Prince” Dillon Stephens defended his title and took first.
Sector 9′s Big Lou was sporting an absolutely filthy moustache when he got second.
JimZ’s hands-down style was surprisingly fast. He and Madrid rider Justin Rouleau crashed later in the run, nuking Rouleau’s ankle.
Thirty more after the jump, including some dudes whose names we don’t know. See yourself? Let us know so we can put your name up and give you the recognition your steez deserves.
“The 2011 Rayne NEMESIS is here! This Nemesis comes top mounted with a deep tub concave and a 1″ dropped platform large enough to feel comfortable no matter what the occasion – perfect for quick aggressive maneuvering. Lighter and shorter than the Demonseed, this deck offers all the stability and comfort in a tighter, smaller package ready to thrash tighter turns. Slashing your way through alleys or effortlessly bombing the steep grades, this villain is shaking things up. The variable wheelbase at 32″ and 33″allows the rider to customize their set-up, while taller ride height of the the top mount allows the rider to leverage their turning while still maintaining a low center of gravity. The Nemesis is ideal for freeriding and downhill racing.
