Jake is attempting to break Rob Thomson’s World Record (7,555 miles) skating the most continuous miles on a skateboard. When Rob calculated his mileage this was over China, Europe and the US. Rob’s cross-US portion was 3436 miles, so Jake is planning to double-back (and maybe do some extracurricular miles) to surpass the record. From his blog it looks like Jake is already learning a lot. In this ABC15 article he’s talking about 16 hour days but I’m pretty sure he’ll have to throw some rest in there! Good luck Jake!! Follow his adventure at
Two Dutch guys skated through Spain for 3.5 weeks. They started in Valencia, and ended their trip in Barcelona. They filmed everything they came across, and they will edit all videos into a movie afterwards. Whenever they have internet, they will post short updates here: https://www.facebook.com/crossingboardersofficial

“Our launch into the wilderness of America has approximate date which will be somewhere in May. Since we are part of this great community, we felt like it’s important to give back somehow while trying to get some support, so we are still in the middle of this whole planning and reaching out thing. Once it becomes more clear and we will know the date of our launch then I will let you know. We really wanted to make it to Ladiga race and if the time will be on our side, then we will be there!!!”
“At the beginning of July Jamie MacDonald and Alfie Wiener are going to Longboard from John O Groats to Lands End for Charity.
