COURSE HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:
This is the original course used for Portland Pusher #4 in 2005, the Annie Ross Open from 2006-2010, and the last six years of the P-Town Throwdown. The route is 8.5 Miles through lower S.E. Portland. First 5 miles is mostly slight downhill but includes two sections that are 6-10 blocks of steeper downhill with speeds of 20-30 mph. Knowing how to footbrake will keep you under that. The last 3 miles you enter the bike path leading you South along the Willamette River towards Sellwood Park and the finish line just before the Sellwood bridge. The whole route includes only 3 traffic light signals to watch for. As a city bike route there are very few stop signs along this course, but please be aware of traffic at all times!
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION AT THE RIDERS MEEETING – The course will be explained highlighting the most dangerous intersections. If you are unsure then follow a group of riders who have done it before. NOTE: This race is unique to other distance skateboard races. Riders will be going as fast as possible but will be obeying city traffic laws all the way through. Basically racing to the stop signs or red lights, stopping, then continue racing again. Any riders not doing this will be disqualified and banned from the event!
ENTRY FEE: 4 Cans of Food and approved liability waiver.
To ring in the new year of 2018, we are introducing a new series of skating sessions in Portland, Oregon called PDX DOCKSESSIONS!
We actually had the first event on 12/23/17 at the dry day location in S.E. Portland at Arleta School. For wet and raining days it will be located at another school a mile away called Marysville that features a large covered area. Follow the Facebook Community Page PDX DockSessions to find out which location each event is at. The plan is to have them every other Saturday from 1-4pm in Jan, Feb, and March and see how it evolves.
The next event is on 1/6/18 – Event Page
The Arleta School location is perfect for Dancing with a huge flat smooth blacktop. Also great for street skating with several metal edge staircases for grinds and tricks. Also an empty parking lot on the weekends with parking blocks, both of which areas are fenced in an free of car traffic on the weekends. Another awesome feature are 2 new slappy grind curbs that are freshly waxed and ready to roll up on and grind away. The are on the northern perimeter of the parking lot with a sidewalk entry onto them.
The Marysville School location is a big flat concrete area that has a huge covered area to skate on. This area is great for Dancing as well, but does not have parking blocks, curbs, and not as many features to street skate on. However it’s dry when raining and we plan on bringing some things to skate with like hippy jumps and possible small ramps and rails to hit up.
All are welcome to come skate and hang out! Whatever style you got, bring it! We are just about having fun together and keeping the longboard community alive and strong during the off season. Bring ramps, plywood, or whatever other features you want to add to the mix, lots of room at both locations.
One of the best Holiday gifts you can get any boarder on your list, the Eastside Balance Board!
Weather a snowboarder, skateboarder, longboarder, surfer, wakeboarder, ect, this thing is guaranteed to be a hit. What’s special about our balance board besides the price and how well it’s made, is the design allows for continual improvement. Most other brands have limitations with stoppers on the ends and a track in the middle. That’s all fine and dandy until you get the basics down, which is pretty fast for a lot of riders. After that they get boring because there is no freedom to go different directions and push your limits. A lot of times in life, simpler is better and that’s what our Balance Board is all about! Check out the video to see what I mean by no limitations on what you can do with it.
It’s awesome for anyone who wants to improve their balance, have something fun to do indoors, and it’s great exercise. People who ride them have a better sence of where their body needs to be on whatever board they are on outside. And can practice the movements that directly correlate to their sport such as learning how to get a toeside turn down on a snowboard. Plus it strenghtens all your tiny muscles around your lower legs, feet, and ankles that prevent injuires in the long run. A win win all around, and still fun for the experienced rider.
If you live in Portland, you can call Robin at 503-680-0457 to arrange a pickup for only $30.
