Crossing Boarders

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

A-Cross America

https://www.facebook.com/CrossAmerica

A-Cross America is going from N.Y.C toward California on longboard.   Andrei Hippix (pictured on the right)  filled me in on the rough sketch plans.  Good luck guys!

“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. We are planning to do this trip for two charities but we are still in the process of deciding which charities to help. We are going to try and complete this trip in about 20 to 25 days by skating about 40 to 60 miles in a day.”

“We are two guys who’ve both have been affected by the consequences of cancers in our lives and now want to draw attention to this by longboarding through Sweden, spreading information on how you can help us find a cure. What we want from this journey is to inform you how YOU can help yourself and others, and in different ways prevent cancer. We are currently in the planning stage but more information will follow. ”

For the vast majority of us who don’t have the luxury of taking months off from work at a time, traveling entire continents on a skateboard is a dream. It’s awesome to see and support those that get out and do it — those adventures are listed here and on the pavedwave forum.
