Grizzly Conditions with Dre Nubine

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 “Tooth and Nail: Smiling!” 2011

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.

From MIscho…

“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!”

Javier Tato: Seismic Flow RIder Video

Seismic is stoked to release the first YouTube clip starring our new flow rider / videographer extraordinaire, Javier Tato of Madrid, Spain!

“The blue Bootlegs are the best freeride wheels I’ve ever ridden.  They have a great slide, and they’re REALLY resistant to flat-spotting.

The red Bootlegs are a bit more grippy.  But since they’re softer, they leave AWESOME red ‘thane lines on the asphalt.” – Javier Tato

“Longest one wheel manual on a skateboard” by James Soloday

Tomorrow, Oct. Friday 18, Blue Sky Longboards will be holding a push race on the streets of New Jersey, the Blue Sky Mile Challenge.

This is the first year that this event is happening and the guys organizing it have been trying their best to make it one of a kind for a couple different reasons:

1. A bracket will be used to place the fastest skaters together in one final heat.
2. The prize purse will be split evenly between the men and women.
3. Great for spectators!  And, the racers who didn’t make the finals will get to see the most exciting part of the event – the first place finish!

The biggest and most exciting difference at this event is the racing format.  The day will begin with practice and qualifying.  During this time racers are free to skate as much as you like.  Once you are ready to qualify (you only get one, so be ready) you will collect your timing chip, skate a mile as fast as you can, then return the timing chip to the finish to get your time.  Qualifying times will be available in real time on a monitor in the in field.

You can find more information about it here: Blue Sky Mile Challenge . There is no registration day and the registration closes toonight at midnight. You can register here:

Same day, same event, James Soladay will attempt the Guiness World RecordLongest one wheel manual on a skateboard“. The current for the longest one wheel manual (wheelie) on skateboard on flat surface is 68.54 m (224 ft 10 in) and was achieved by Stefan Akesson (Sweden) at the Gallerian Shopping Centre, Stockholm, Sweden, on 2 November 2007.

James will be riding on Seismic Wheels and Seismic Bearings on this attempt to break the Guiness Workd record. Here you can check a couple of videos of him doing a manual and one wheel manual, enjoy and good luck James!!

Seismic Skate: Freeriding Bootlegs

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

Seismic Landslide Freeride Wheel Review

Check this out! Great gear review written in Australia on our 75mm Landslide Wheels:

Seismic Landslide Freeride Wheel

Seismic Landslide Freeride Wheel

The responsiveness and consistent slide blew me away, I don’t know if I’ve been out of the freeride loop or just been riding race wheels for too long, but I was so impressed with the freeride ability of these wheels straight off the shelf.

The Landslide is a very similar sized wheel to the purple Durian, that I’ve always been a fan of  but these have just a little wider contact patch. Hands down the wheels did seem to drift a little too much but I’m sure its just my technique. After a solid session behind the Hopshop, I started hitting the toe sides hard, feeling free to get it sideways knowing that it was always going to come back with no trouble. The result was my first pendy style standup toeside! Stoked on a new slide in the bag,  I got Maga to start taking photos and the ripping continued. After I threw on some Durians for a straight up comparison, the result was shocking, the Durians needed more time to work in and definitely harder to… (Read more… Seismic Landslide Freeride Wheel Review)”
