Carolina Skate


off to a great start
let's be honest.

let's be honest.

So on friday the Carolina Longboard Club of the University of 
South Carolina had our first meeting and needless to say it was a success.

At first we were a little skeptical, there only being about 3 or 4 of us
but as the day went on we were anywhere from 5 to about 13 boarders.
We accomplished the 3 person hamboard ride, a couple legit wipe outs,
getting hassled by the cops, and bombing  some nice hills rolling 10+ deep.
We also caused quite the scene wherever we were which I’m sure will have
people talking.

Here’s a few more pictures from the day:

 Though the school year is closing out we’ve got no plans of slowing down. As for 
now we’re spreading the word and encouraging people who’ve been skating for years
or people who’ve always had an interest but never had the chance to come out and play around.  

Keep your eyes out for another update hopefully with more photos or
maybe a video…until then keep kickin’ and pushin’

Comment by Clay Sikes

we have weekly meetings but ride ALL THE TIME.
pretty much we just let one another know (it it goes through the grape vine)
when we’re out skating – we can be anywhere from just two to up to like 15 or 20.
