Striker’s Tales: Whistler Longboard Fest 2015

Hands down the best photos ever taken from the Whistler Longboard Fest were taken by Mr. David Price Rat. I think it’s been a few years since I grabbed the microphone at WLF and to get the call from Unkle Lee to come back and have some fun doing what I love on one of the biggest stages in the world.

Here it is!!! This is almost three hours of unedited, unfiltered, uncut, raw whistler longboard festival footage taken by guff from Landyachtz. He ran around with a phone so his eyes are your eyes and things get pretty wacky when we are at the finish line waiting for racers!! I haven’t sat down and watched this yet but I know you will laugh your ass off. This is me keeping the crowd entertained while we get soaked in the rain at this year’s Whistler Longboard Festival!! Sit back with a case of beer and enjoy this beast. Big thanks to the racers, Landyachtz, Guff and Unkle Lee for having me back to do what I love and supporting me and my family!!

Well how was it I assume you watched all three hours!!! What was some of the best moments to you?? I think Guff had a fun time with this should do this at every event in my mind you get it all totally uncensored hahahha!

We had a full Cribb tour to Whistler and the whole weekend was wet as hell even cold good thing the Cribb bomb furnace works because we needed it. The only problem with the furnace it’s too hot by the middle of the night so people sweat like dogs.

So we parked at the skate park and the Cribb was there for anyone who wanted a chill place to hang out that didn’t have a hotel near the village. It’s a great spot to park because when it’s nice its right beside the skate park and minutes from the village.

We took the risk eh…

We did a lot of relaxing and chilling Cariboo gave us a brand new BBQ to get wild on so we cooked leftover chicken and burgers on it and it worked great after that we used the BBQ as a fire barrel to keep us warm back alley under a bridge style but in Beautiful British Columbia in the middle of the mountains and forest the Canadian way or the Cribb bomb way anyways. This of course burned throughout the day and night we had unlimited pallets across the street that burned great.

In the daytime if you’re lucky you knew someone in a hotel where you could shower up and even get some hot tub time big thanks to Jeff Budro and the Sector 9 family for taking care of me as usual I needed this soak.

Race day I bet Max Capps California Coast longboarder twenty bucks that Emily Pross was going to beat his ass down the hill and eliminate him. When he agreed to the bet I told Emily that Max bet me twenty bucks he was going to kick her ass and that was all I needed to do she was ready for the challenge and ended up beating him in the first round then in the second round eliminated him hahahahaha!!! Max is a great sport. I’m a huge fan of the Prossanator since the first time I seen her aggressive warrior style very compact and tough squeezes the hell out of those leathers. There is no bullshit with this one I tell ya.
