Onboard Distribution – All The Pinche Way Monterreal Edit

The homies at Onboard Distribution were a HUGE help with running All The Pinche Way last fall in Mexico. Pinche Tour Mama, Claudio, now working with Onboard as well as Rayne, shot a bunch of video at Monterreal and just released a sick edit for Onboard’s channel to highlight their support for the tour.

Thanks to Claudio and Andres for all the support! Now peep the footage:

Second Place at Jake’s Rash Old Man Race!

Despite skating down hills for years now, Freeride’s and lurking the back of the pack seshing runs with the homies is more my style. Add running brand activations at most events and I have rarely entered a “race”. Last year I hit up the Mt. Tabor race on “holiday” and entered myself to actually compete. Tabor is a rad old-school tuck race in Portland, a generally mellow hill, but anything can happen racing. I ended up crashing with OSL in my first heat (Sorry buddy!), but advancing, and then out next round. Fun times for sure.

This past week was the infamous Danger Bay and Jake’s Rash. I was working with Switchback at Danger Bay and not really down for the havoc of the historic crash corner, but the party is rad. I had more time at the mid-week Jake’s Rash (not a family event!) and really enjoy the speedy, sweepy course – time to race.

Pinche Interview with Thane Mag

Gbemi has been blogging about the longboard world for a few years now with All Around Skate and Thane Magazine. He has a unique style of Google Doc interviewing with an interesting and disarming feel and pace. A few months back (or so it feels?), Gbemi got in touch about my involvement in Rayne and Vicious, this time he wanted to hear about the Rayne All the Pinche Way Tour.

Check the link for the full interview.

All The Pinche Way Ep. 3

Monterrey and Monterreal is where we got inspired to start All the Pinche Way. I traveled to the 2012 MILF with Aidan and Justin and really fell in love with the region. Returning with the tour was definitely a grand idea.

The feature image is Levi Green in Monterrey… getting his daily cheesus. By this time, Levi has given up on riding his downhill deck and just started shredding a Rayne Catalyst with 62mm Envies and blasting huge slides beside the occasional ollie. Photo from Will Edgecombe.

THC and NoNeed4Lube were on it all trip supporting the tour with camera gear, but really blew it up with tight car mount, follow runs. Big thanks to all of them and the homies that showed us the way and gave us places to stay.

Big thanks to Claudio Uribe, Onboard Distribution, Vicious Grip, Rayne Longboards and all the homies in Mexico who helped make this awesome!

PS. I brought home tons of footage and I gotta keep giving credit to Aidan Lynds for plowing through it all to make these edits.

North Vancouver City Fest Fun

Last week was a blur with a stag in Las Vegas to attend. I returned late Thursday for a busy Friday prep for the North Vancouver City FestĀ happeningĀ Saturday, May 3rd.

I really do enjoy volunteering and events. Volunteering always seems to be more rewarding then simply paid work and the people you get to meet and work with share a similar feeling in life. Events have this long lead up with a hammering finale, but then they’re done and you can sit back and breath and enjoy reaching the goal.
