Annoyed by all the ancient wisdom cheesily regurgitated these days? Well here’s more; a special compilation de-created with mountainboarding in mind
Yes! Grab your coloured pencils & felt tips coz it’s super-happy rad colouring-in, Remolition Mountainboard Style
In 2010/11, Remolition went on a totally fictional cosmic trip through outer space: riding the moon, Olympus Mons on Mars, the rings of Saturn, then out of our Solar System and left at Andromeda, taking us where no mountainboard rider had boldly ridden a mountainboard before.
Mr Simon Neck, a busy student and dedicated mountainboard rider, works under the name PixelDistort creating unique artwork and graphics. As well as commercial projects, PixelDistort does imagery for PU (Plymouth University) ATB that you’ll recognise from his distinctive style.
PUATB’s Fiona Cuickshank shows us how she made a boring old deck look bright, shiny, new and generally awesome in this how-to guide & video tutorial…
Many people ask what ‘Remolition’ means. Some might say it’s a moniker to confuse mountainboarders that have had one donk on the lid too many; a typo, or something to do with reloading ammunition- locked n loaded, ready to roll, that kind of thing. Could be something to do with the fact there can be no creation without destruction, and vice versa, a phoenix from the flames, etc.
Feeling arty on a solo freeride can produce some great pix. Play about with your perspective, your digital camera’s settings and get some unusual images, focusing on a totally different element of your descent: how often are photos taken by riders whilst riding?
Originally published in All Terrain Boarding Magazine in 2005, here is Dan Wilson’s trilogy of mountainboard comic strips, each one inspired by days out freeriding… All original art copyright Decreate
Artist, rider, and all round remolitionary Dan Wilson brings us a second exhibition of rarely-seen priceless scribbles and doodles from his archives. Filling sketchbooks at a rate of at-least-a-page-a-day for the last decade, they often feature wheelie-boards, as well as a plethora of other random stuff that floats through his subconscious.
