What’s up? My name is Ben Koff and I have been skating for almost 2 years. I love every aspect of longboarding, from slashing free ride hills to mobbing down mountain roads. Longboarding was something I was startled by; I figured that it took someone with a screw loose in their head to want to go break neck speeds on a board and execute highly technical maneuvers. I ride a topmount for all aspects of skating and enjoy riding with a tight group of friends who all feed off each other and push each other to learn new tricks and go faster than before. TEAM GNARWALE. G-CODE. Anyways, thanks for checking out this video and a big thanks to Lee Eisler for taking the time to post this on Adrenaline Fueled.Check out Gnarwale skateboards on facebook and youtube!!! www.gnarwaleskateboards.com Practice safe skating and remember, Ride Gnarwale. -Ben Koff


After the first few minutes of the roller derby there was already tons of action as girls slammed, checked and tripped each other.

Two girls (one from each team) would start at the back of the pack wearing stars on their helmets making them the Jammers for the team. The Jammers would score points by passing all the blockers. Everyone who wasn’t a Jammer was a Blocker with the mission to stop the Jammers from passing at all costs.

Each pass made by the Jammer earned the team 3 points.

The match up was the Dukebox Heroes (in the white shirts) vs. the Buns & Roses (in the black shirts). Both teams battled hard for the win. The skating rink was their battlefield.

The rules? Well, there aren’t many. Anything goes here.

After seeing flying fists, elbows being thrown, roller skates taken to the thigh and even many more slide tackles the Dukebox Heroes took the win with a final score of 87-81.

Visit the Renegade Roller girls of Orange County website to find more info about their upcoming matches and find them on Facebook. The matches occur at the Holiday Skate Center in Orange, California.

A killer local band named Tyranis played for the halftime show.

“Left side the road’s a dangerous place.” Offspring says it best in their song Bad Habit. When skateboarding on roads that are not closed obeying the laws of the road can be a lifesaver.

Staying in your lane, staying with in your limits and being aware of your surroundings will go a long ways. It just takes the one turn where you exit into the opposite lane with an oncoming car to damage or end your life.

Guard rails, cars, motorcycles, rocks and other solid objects are all things that can hurt you, but by skating safely you can do your whole life.

It’s not a race, be safe, wear your helmets and have fun!


Disco balls, dancing shoes and a course designed to test out the skills of everyone who competed. That’s right! It was again time for the 2011 Downhill Disco presented by www.muirskate.com.

Everyone was stoked to be at the 2011 Downhill Disco

The course this year set the bar for years to come. “I think that kickers are going to be the big thing for the next 12 months, so you guys learn how to do them because we’re gonna do it next year too” said www.muiskate.com shop owner Scott Lembach.

What a totally disco toeside through the cones

With a constant barrage of people coming down the hill and various features set up throughout the course there was never a dull moment.

The riders competing in the event were separated into two different groups based on age. The younger riders were called the Disco Squad and the older group was called the A-Team.

There was a race in which they timed how long it took riders to make it through the course. The course was a cones course designed to be difficult to navigate through. It included jump ramps, tunnels and a hippy jump to make things interesting for the riders and the spectators.

Through the tunnel and over the ramp is where Mike Montjoy likes to go

After the race was held for both competing groups a slide jam was held. The slide jam was full of features to help riders keep ripping.

Chance Gaul winds up for the 360

Out of all the features the big kicker ramp was the focal point. Riders were going huge. Many 180’s and even a 360 were thrown down in the list of tricks landed. No big deal.

Chance Gaul CAN fly!

The gnar bar got raised a step further when 3 brave men decided to lay at the end of the kicker ramp as skaters launched over them. 3 people soon turned to 4. It was then raised again when someone decided to sit in a green plastic chair, letting riders launch clear over his head.

The amount of people launching off the ramps, attempting and landing 180’s and getting some hang time blew me away. Everyone was sliding, and jumping, and moving to the beat.

Congratulations to the winners!

With the downhill skateboard scene growing and more and more riders participating in the sport, outlaw events have become increasingly popular in the southern California scene.

The Los Angeles Downhill Racing League (LADRL) is a new group of southern California riders looking to compete, go fast and have fun.

The race was held on a road that I would rather not name and provided for a lot of excitement. Spotters were provided on turns to ensure safety.

“Finish line, Angeles National Forest sign. No crossing the yellow” said William Myrvold “Ready, set, kill it!” With that a pack of around 25 skaters took off down the over 7 mile trek downhill looking to win the $200 that would be provided to the winner.

Tim Del Rosario started at the back of the pack, but quickly overtook everyone proving to be the fastest one out there that day. Austin Nicassio came in second and Alex Gradillas came in third.

Thanks to Xtreme Boardshop and GMR Skateboards for hosting this event.

Be sure to look for more stuff from the LADRL in the near future. There has already been talk of a King of the mountain style race in which everyone times themselves with video footage on a Go Pro camera. The fastest time wins.

This video is nothing but radical. Snowboarding taken back down to the roots. Check out the sickest boards I have ever seen and some long board style pack runs even.

Corey Smith cut his shapes out of a piece of wood, fiber glassed, painted it and epoxied it and then went to shred. “This enabled me to look at the mountain and look at snowboarding from a different perspective and you know, just really enjoy it” said Corey Smith, Creator of Spring Break snowboards.

The shredding in this video is so old school and so basic, yet such a fun video to watch.

“Building and riding these boards has been one of the most best experiences I’ve had snowboarding.” said Corey Smith, creator of Spring Break snowboards. “Building these boards was just like one of the best experiences for me as far as, just falling back in love with snowboarding. I think I was just so over it, filming video parts every year.”
The minimum donation to get one of these custom made boards is $500 and it includes a 1 year warranty against breaking.

The 2011 Dragon Skate Race held on California Ave in the University of California Irvine was a day full of fun and excitement for everyone.

Tyler Hampson and Spencer Adams fully suited up

The event was hosted by UC Irvine’s Beta Theta Pi as a charity event to help raise money for the The Free Wheelchair Mission which is a nonprofit organization that helps provide wheelchairs to people in developing countries that can’t afford one. The wheelchairs cost $59.20 to manufacture.

The race was not held on a very exciting course however the addition of hay bails at the end caused for some great crashes and excitement for the crowd.

Setting up the second wall in stopping riders from hitting the street

Some riders would pin it full speed launching off their boards exploding through the hay bails landing in the street on the other side. Hay bails would disintegrate as riders bailed through them at over 30 m.p.h.

Other riders chose to throw a slide or foot brake before hitting the painfully hard hay bails while lots more riders avoided them completely.

Putting hay back into place moments after a rider exploded throught he hay bails

Full padding and helmets were required for all riders. The cost of entry was $10 which got you 2 runs. Each additional run was $5.

The course was set up with a high tech timing system using wires in the ground that would start and then stop the times as riders would cross over them.

Congratulations to:

1st place- Jimmy Riha

Tie for 2nd Place- Peter Kell & Jeff Budro

3rd Place- Austin Nicassio

Alli Adams started skateboarding less than a year ago. Now she’s hitting 40 mph on her local hill and throwing slides steezy and easy. I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot more of her in the up and coming future.
