New Changes and Club Fair!

Hey guys – it’s been a while.

Good news is that we’re back and we’re ready to hit this year hard –
we also have some pretty exciting new things going on.
One of those things is that we are now Carolina Skate.
We’ve got a lot of people on campus interested in shortboarding and
to meet that demand we’re going to add a wing to our club.
Our hopes are that we’ll be getting an actual website (we’ll
keep this for fun updates and things like that) up  and going
and kick it up on the video promotion for both sections of the club.

There’s a lot of things cooking and we’re doing our best to get
it underway fairly quickly so keep your eyes out.

Also today, USC had their club fair and we had a table.
Pretty good turn out and we’re pumped for all of the kids that
came out and signed up for long and short boarding.
Here’s some snapshots from the club fair:

sliding

I’d say something that the majority of us are working on is sliding.
There’s only two of us with actual sliding gloves but a lot of us have
given them a shot – cool part is half of the sliders aren’t using slicker
or orangatang wheels.. it’s been fun helping each other out.

Here’s some shots from the past few days:

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’
