On 7/24/2015 PSR wrote in from United States  (65.96.nnn.nnn)

Sarah, That's a very rare board, designed with hill-cruising in mind! Without knowing your truck/riser/bushing/wheel combo, it's hard to judge what could be, or would need to be, changed. If you cruise hills, pump your turns, and like moderate to high speeds, it'll work. The only 'iffy' thing here is possibly your weight, as men often out-power or out-weight women, so the steering may seem a bit unresponsive (try softer bushings, then!).
Do you have Roadie Racers on it? What color (hardness changes with color on those)? What Trucks (Indy's, Trackers, Randals would be likely, all a bit different in handling)? And, how long is it? Toss back some info, and I can try tweaking it remotely, hopefully enough to help!

Longboarding for Charity

Hey fellow longboarders, I'm about to be longboarding across America from Wilmington, NC to San Francisco, CA to raise money for 3 charities. I'm leaving on May 14, 2012 but I need help getting more support. Please check out my website www.longboardingUSA.com and like my page on Facebook. This will help so much just by getting the word out.

Atlanta Longboard Push this Weekend!

Atlanta Longboard Club pushes for Board Rescue

Skateboarders join together to push 20 miles for fun and to benefit Board Rescue



PALO ALTO, Calif. (July 29, 2009)

In the current economic state it has become more difficult to raise money for non-profits. Board Rescue is pleased to have the Atlanta Long Board Club volunteering to donate 100% of the proceeds from its annual Silver Comet Charity Push, a 20-mile push through Atlanta scheduled for August 1.

Regarding the proceeds; Chad Hall from Atlanta Longboard Club said "Get some little kids on some longboards
man! Whatever you get them on, I know they will see alot of happiness from it."

Having organization like ALC commit to support Board Rescue's mission is crucial to our success, "We would like to thank all the riders that are heading out to this event and making a donation to Board Rescue, have a safe and fun ride" said Gary Holl President of Board Rescue.

Hello all, I haven't posted in a long time, busy with the usual geezer stuff. I finally got back to the inclines near Palo Alto for the first time since the 70s. Check out the cruising clip on YouTube, keywords Stanford Longboarding. Fortunate to ride with some of the local ladies.

OK, I live in florida, Okaloosa county. There are about 2 hills within pushing distance which are nothing compared to the ones in the videos. If you live in the area, hit me up!
