Recap from Bogata

Some nice words here from our comrade in arms Patrick. Festival de la Bajada Recap Hopefully Guff is working on cutting up team rider Hugh Johnston and Dillon Stevens footage from their trip to South America.

I had a lovely holiday...

...with my kids who live down by the tracks around the corner from the factory. And I hope you all had the same good times with family and friends. Things should get back to normal pretty quick meow. Maybe we'll even pick a winner for the coat rack in the new year. I hope you've all been thinking about your goals for 2011, because it's going to be a great year.

One cold weekend

The temperatures have dropped below freezing, which is quite unusual for Vancouver in November. The staff and team seem to enjoy this snow stuff, but this kitty wants summer back Meow! Phillip really got around this weekend. Skiing Whistler with Blake and Marlowe on Saturday...

The Colombian Connection... Hugh updates us...

Team riders Dillon and Hugh owned Colombia this past weekend with Dillon taking 1st and Hugh taking 3rd.  Fellow Canadian Patrick Switzer finished off the canadian sweep in second.  Check out what Hugh had to say over Facebook with team manager Blake...

(Blake) Hows the skateing been?
 (Hugh) Pavement here is really sticky, not the best for free-riding
but the city was built randomly with no plans so the roads just go fu*king all over the place, twisty turny drops like nothing ive seen before the whole thing has been a very seminal experience the potential here is amazing but its only this one kid who is fully realizing it, child leading the masses
well hopefully you two being there will change that
or at least that was our plan
we’re working on it
perfect
i wish we had more shwag left so we could have a slope style or something
prototype wheels SICK AS FU*K
like no other
glad to hear they do need to come home with you though
im coring these f**kers on this trip
hey you should take this chat conversation and make it a blog post, steal some pictures from fb as well

Friday, November 19, 2010

Justin Ortiz is so...

... Gangster?

Brad Da Silva wrote this about him.
So i know this 'Pirate of the Pavement" and we call him 'Justin Ortiz"
Shredding mad gnar, doing so with mad steeze Somebody walks up and goes "Man ill kick your ass, serve ya up on a plate!"
Then Justin replies "Yo bro, Settle this on the road and ill teach you to skate!"
Some slay in the kitchen, in the water, this case the land If you ever need some help, any boarder would glady lend a hand Now you might fall down, get a scrape, but skating means some pain If you dont know where to start, id go to landyachtz or rayne Or check justin, with his videos, skating and some samarai swords With this kiind of entertainment, man nobody would get bored Put it real simple, this bro slays at skating, a super rad dude With a helmet gloves and pads and half covered in tattoo's So my homie, i say keep doing you, and dont change a thing And while you continue skating ill continue to sing!
bahahaha peacee suckaa

Happy Guy Fawkes day?

Hopes and dreams coming to fruition.


2 countries down... 2 ta go. It seems like Dhillon and Hugh are enjoying their adventure. Not sending us quite the pictures that we'd expected... but that's a real nice hat Dave Angeles is wearing meow. Fortunatly I found this photo on Downhill Peru or Die's blog.


Hugh also sent us this short little rant. "we bomb'd through an army base in the desert today. THROUGH TORNADOS at 90 km/h getting pushed one way, then total calm then pushed the other all crazy like nothing i have ever done before. our last day in peru before we head to brazil. miss all of yall."

Andi over at Axess 33 in Cambridge Ontario enjoyed the PEC Gravity Fest a couple of weeks ago. Rain was unable to take away from her fun, and the event went off spectacularly.

Reduce and reuse...


... some of the guys here at the factory had fun constructing their Halloween costumes out of scrap cardboard. This seems like a better alternative to buying a cheap costume that you'll only wear once. You can then recycle your planes, trains, and automobiles when you're done.

This is why i love Vancouver



Thanks to the Ontario Longboarding forum for finding and posting this Gem.

New Dog...


... same old tricks. Now that Enzo is part of our devious plan to let all the secrets out of the bag, we're sure to be saddled with much success. Maybe because he's the size of a horse, perhaps due to the fact that he sleeps in Tom's office. Either way, I'm excited for some new perspective... even if he is a dog.

Running on hopes and dreams...


Hugh Johnston and Dhillon Stevens have left on an epic skateboarding journey of the Americas. Their plan as I understand it, is to make their way down the west coast of Cali (skate and destroying along the way), in order to fly out of LAX to Peru for TARMA. Then from there... off to Brazil for the Malarrara Pro Teutonia. Finishing with Festival Del Abajada in Columbia. Looks like they're eating, skating and sleeping well! It's a darn good thing I get to live vicariously through Dhillon's new camera. Tear it up!

Eh Team Episode 10

It’s been a busy summer!! The crew has been working so hard at keeping up with demand and getting to events that we haven’t been spending nearly enough time making Eh Team videos.

The last episode featured Young Guns, Fernando Yuppie and Wolf Coleman. Blake took them out in the Eh Team van for a skate after school.

This time, a slightly different approach was taken. Adam Yates and Dillion Stephens are both major parts of the Eh Team and huge parts of production here at the shop.

Dillion comes from Summerland in the BC interior, he grew up shredding on Giants Head and has developed an amazing skill set on a longboard. He made the Move to Vancouver about a year ago, working first in the packing side of Landyachtz then shifting back into the work shop.

Adam has been living the longboarders dream for the past few years. He’s been traveling back and forth between Canada and Australia dodging winter and hitting Europe in between to compete in the IGSA racing circuit. This summer he’s living at my friend Kurt Russell's house along with Dillion, Liam and Grizz. At the shop he keeps the packing boys motivated and the UPS driver on his toes.

Adam and Dillion both commute to work on their 2010 Carbon Mummy’s setup with 150mm Grizzly prototypes and white Zombies. They also use it to shred alley’s, hit the beach, do early grabs, ride banks, drift sideways, drag race...

Let us know what you think!!!

Mount Washington... seriously?

This past weekend, Wes Sampson, Erik Ware, and many volunteers, made the first annual Mount Washington Downhill Longboard Race a huge success. Despite the ski resort managements attempt to torpedo the event (through an extremely uninformed and disrespectful article published in one of the local papers), it went off without a hitch. The fact that the propaganda piece (masquerading as ethical reporting) made no mention of all the deaths that occur at the resort every winter is quite telling. Also, Marcel Tetrault, maybe a little research next time would be in order, seeing as this is your job we’re talking about. All concerned parties (RCMP, and Department of Transportation) were happy with the results of the event, and it is sure to only get bigger in the years to come. So Peter Gibson, this kitty is calling you out, it’s time to get on board.

Love is in the air

So this was posted in the Georgia Straight, a local Vancouver news publication:

If you are the writer or mystery "Landyachtz Boy" give us a call, 778-785-6855, we can probably help this budding love blossom.

Friday, August 20, 2010

It's probibaly for the best...

... that events like this don't happen all the time. Best for your liver that is.
**don't try this at home, unless you're over the legal drinking age. And in that case, be sure to stay safe**

Thanks Ottawa, and Top of the World!
