The 2016 Giants Head Freeride presented by Landyachtz is in the books. We ventured up north to Summerland, British Columbia in the DB Longboards van with team riders Devon Dotson, Michael Adams and Hunter Ollom and met up with Susannah Hogue, David Bubier and their crew from the East Coast. The past four days for us were filled with pine cones lots of runs, hot temperatures, endlessly tinkering with our longboards, stuffy U-hauls and a non-stop party. Overall, it was some of the most fun we have had on our skateboards in a minute.
For the most part all of our team riders were riding a Keystone at the freeride, but the Contra 35.5" and Diamondback made appearances also.
Our photographer Matt McDonald made the trip with the team and just posted up over 100 photos for you to checkout and repost if you want. If you do repost a photo make sure to give photo credit to Matt by tagging his photo account on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @equalmotion in the caption (EX: Photo by @equalmotion). If you are interested in getting a watermark free or high-resolution version of the photos hit up Matt at email@example.com.
On that note, thank you to all of the volunteers, organizers, sponsors and the town of Summerland for hosting a rad longboard event. Checkout the photos while we start working on the video.
