Gnarlicante / Olson & Hekmati wheels
Alex Dehmel has landed in Alicante and is already enjoying sweet Spanish hills with Pablo Quiles. As Olson & Hekmati is known to be one of their biggest supporters, they’ve announced new Gnarlicante / O&H wheels.
They are white, have a cool graphic and are soft as fuck having a duro of 76a. The rest remains a mystery so far. In one of my recent conversations with Pablo regarding an article I’m putting together to introduce Alicante as one the winter longboarding destination, he promised smooth slides, great roll speed and more. I guess they are going to be soon up on a Gnarlicante Longboard Store,
price remains unknown to this point. Let’s see where this goes – we’ll keep you posted.
Update: You can get these over at O&H store now for 42,82 Euros (discounted from 54,90 Euros). Knock yourself out :)
DTC releases new slide gloves
DTC Distribution announced new DTC PRG slide gloves. These are meant to be extra comfortable, providing a perfect fit comparable to golfing gloves. Sounds nice.
They also seem to be “leather suit friendly” thanks to the position of a tightening band which is placed over the upper side of a palm, rather then around a wrist. Stretchable fabric and additional perforated leather makes them great for hot summer days while being durable in contrast to slide gloves made fully of fabric (aka freeride gloves). Did I mention the double leather layer on finger tips? I did now. Price is more than fair, you can get them for only 45 Euros. Definitely worth the money. Also, their sleek design kicks asses!
LGC repping in a video ad
Longboard Girls Crew did a great job repping in a video commercial for Bouygues Telecom, one of France’s biggest telephone companies. The video was shot in Southern France and features LGC girls including Eider Walls, Ishtar Bäcklund, Lyde Begue, Noelia Otegui, Femke Bosma and Valeria Kechichian. To make sure everything meets required standards, the ad was shot under the orders of Ty Evans, director of Pretty Sweet and We Are Blood. Jump over to their website for some nice looking photographs.
Mischo Erban featuring Next Boards
We’ve shared this massive achievement in one of our earlier posts, when Mischo Erban rolled into the Guinness Book Of World Records by skating on what is currently being the fastest electric skateboard / longboard on the planet. Here’s the official video recap, filmed and edited by Flying Focus (Yvone Labarthe). Watch the video to found out how the whole project went down.
