Congrats to Javier Tato for winning the Soplao race in Spain, and to Rafa Ga Suave and Aleix Gallimo for making finals and semis! The heats were stacked and tight, Way to kill it guys! Federico Prieto with the beautiful shot.
Seismic team rider Dre Nubine grabbed 1st place in the DH race and 2nd place in the slide jam at the Breezy Bomb, this past weekend in Manhattan, Kansas. For DH he used 76mm Hot Spots in 77A Bubblegum Defcon, and for the slide jam he used our new 72mm Tantrums in 79A yellow Elixir.
In this first episode of the Seismic Eurotour Video Series, Seismic Team riders Rafa Garrido, Javier Tato, and Aleix Gallimo drove from Castell de Castells in Valencia (Spain) to Almabtrieb, Germany, for the first race of the 2013 Eurotour. Despite a few misadventures on the road, they managed to get to the race on time – but not without first learning a lesson in auto mechanics!

Municipality from the province Alicante situated at a distance of 97 km NE of it´s capital, in the mountain range of Alfaro. Elevated at 630 m of altitude. Castell de Castells is a little town, with less of 600 inhabitants and open to turism. It offers Rural houses, Camping and Parkings.

The track consists of nearly 2 km of asphalt in excelent condition of grip, and with an inclination between a 12 & 15%,
agressive forks well cambered, going into a final stretch where you will be able to reach speeds of in between 70 & 80 km/h.
Seismic riders Troy Fairbanks, Dre “Grizzly” Nubine, and Brandon Desjarlais make the pavement cry on the Cry Baby wheels, the newest members of the Seismic freeride wheel family.

Ever complained about the snow harshing your gnar? Snow doesn’t phase Dre “Grizzly” Nubine one bit as he tears down a Colorado mountain pass at speeds in excess of 50mph — with a little help from Seismic’s top-secret new speed/freeride urethane formula. Bright white to match the weather conditions!
Mischo Erban has been pioneering longboarding since man of you were in grade school! This guy is a true racer and has shown it with countless podiums on the world circuit and even a few titles worthy of boasting. This is a flashback to his 2011 season where he won the IGSA World Championship Title in Brazil.
“Still hanging in by tooth and nail the, 2011 season was another to remember! I was becoming more tuned into my skateboard setup and confidence and perseverance paid off with the World Champion Title being seized on my most favorite track in Teutonia, Brazil!
Big Thanks to Fred Baumann, Ronin Trucks, GMR Skateboards, Dan Gesmer at Seismic, Xtreme Board Shop Glendora, Knucklenuts and Crocan for the video edit!”

Check out Seismic flow riders meltin’ pavement all over Madrid. AND TURN YOUR EARS to the sound of “In the Whale”. The band started underground in Greeley, Colorado then moved to Denver shortly after to be a part of the growing music scene.
A little bit about the band:
“…Our music tends to explore the sleazier side of life… the creepy guy in the bar eyeballing the pretty girl, the televangelist who tells you he can save you from the lake of fire, that one uncle you have with the gun collection. We hope to convey a sort of mixture of passion, aggression, and fun with our live show, and we like to think we do a damn good job at it, thank you very much…” – In the Whale
