Ugh.

As i write this, the British weather is sucking, Global politics is beyond parody, and the new mountainboard i bought from ebay just turned out to be a scam. All a bit rubbish.

Sometimes we need a break from reality and just want to stick our heads in the sand (or mud) but this is when we gotta look forward and upwards, so Remolition is doing just that; We saw the sick entries for the ‘Trick of the Year’ competition and were motivated into action!

So we got some real good mountainboard stuff coming soon that’ll warm your cockles on those rainy days when you should be out riding.

But what stuff, i hear you say? Well friends dropping soon on Remolition.com is:

a killer photo report by Andy Rolfe from the New Year’s first Rhythm X pump-track session.

there’s a digital-painterly Art Exhibition featuring some awesome Prisma mountainboard masterpieces,

and in a brand-new exclusive series designed to keep you healthy, motivated and energised, we are proud to announce that Serbia’s Senka Bajic will be your very own new Personal Trainer!

In several parts, Senka (who works at World Class Fitness Centre, Novi Sad), will be bringing us a bespoke physical training programme designed with mountainboarding in mind. There’ll be specific exercises & explanations for some important factors in training, keeping you fit between rides, and preparing for big events.

How cool is that.

Get to know Senka better in her Remolition interview (alongside other top lady shredder Martina Lippolis!).

So let’s get motivated and make some mighty mountainboard plans. 

Feel the burn!!

The Outside Line

WHY? 

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 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. What a ride
