The Drop _ updated monthly!

June 2019


The Inside L!ne: 


It’s Juuuune! summer is like totally here yo and riding is hot. The stoke of mountainboarding is a feeling hard to find in other sports… You may get similar thrills from downhill mountain biking or BMXing, you can get the trick fix from skating or snowboards, you can feel the soul flow on waves, but nothing is the same so stop comparing them! Off road wheelieboarding is its own thang, a unique riding experience. Sharing that is fun so why not nag your mates, organise a meet up, go to a centre like Bugs, Hales or BRD and attend an event like the upcoming Mountfest.

Get on board!

The Outside Line:


There are many different reasons why one would ride a mountainboard regulary.

Here are just a few:

The ‘stoke’ of sport: the feelings of elation, adrenaline, relief, achievement, euphoria and a whole load of other brain chemicals while out shredding some serious gnarbage are extremely satisfying. So too is the hype before and the post-ride wind-down. It’s fitness in disguise.

The peeps and camaraderie: sharing that feeling with friends who get it is special. You are part of something, therefore you are special too.

The discipline: Most riders are pretty relaxed easy-going types, yet can crave the routines and procedures of the ride out; from packing the car to padding up to the self-control required to winding down after. It requires effort, and that is rewarding.

The meditation: being ‘in the moment‘ is something all sports share. Mountainboarding needs your focus to flow so you can let all that other rubbish in your head just fade away. At least for a few hours.

It’s an underdog: Snowboarding and skating are ridiculously huge. BMX massive, surfing standard. Everybody loves an underdog, and mountainboarding is in our hearts like a band you love that are sooo great yet no-one has heard of… Like a lame mongrel at Crufts, we cheer and support it despite it’s unconventional appearance and funny smell.

The environment: once they were called ‘All Terrain Boards’, which was largely true. We can ride our boards in so many stunning, amazing locations. Thanks to mountainboarding, i’ve seen some truly inspiring views. It’s like hill-walking with the biggest bonus side-effect ever.

You take the knocks: like a Zen Buddhist we have to thank our enemies despite their intent. Fell down? Get up. Get better. Many life lessons can be learnt in pursuit of that perfect rotation, that gnarly-lookin’ techey line, or that race for glory. It’s a hard-knock life, and we know it.

It’s playtime: It makes you smile. Jib your heart out, ride tracks till your legs are sore, get dirt in your face, nail a drop, nearly hit a tree, score a boardslide, smash a perfect transfer, carve some turns, slash some leaves, land a flip.

Try wiping that smile off your face; Oh wait, you can’t.
