My brother Kai and I are off to a relaxing weekend, chilling, cruising and enjoying life. Together we were trying the new longboard by Jucker Hawaii who kindly provided us with a free sample.

THE ART OF LONGBOARDING

For me, longboarding is much easier than skateboarding. It developed from surfing when surfers had the idea of fixing roller skate wheels under their boards in order to be able to experience the fun of riding on their boards on the street as well as on the water. It was only later that the boards were shortened, new tricks were added and skateboarding developed from longboarding.

As the boards are longer, the axles are further apart and the roller skate wheels are larger and softer, riding on a longboard is a considerably more pleasant experience than riding on a skateboard. And it is also perfect for beginners. My brother moved relatively quickly and safely from the start. I was still a bit shaky to begin with, but after a short period of practicing, I managed it as well and enjoyed cruising around, forgetting everything around me.

RAFFLE: WIN A JUCKER HAWAII NEW HOKU

You can win one of five longboards. Just send an email to vanessa@vs-world.com, put Jucker Hawaii in the subject line and tell us why you need a new longboard. The 3 flex levels and its shape makes the HOKU (Hawai’an for star) a perfect allrounder for longboarders of all ages and weight class.

The kicktail on both ends allow the rider to use the board for tricks. The dropthrough truckmount keeps the center of gravity low which makes the board a great cruiser. The fiberglass/bamboo construction of the deck is extremely durable without impacting the weight of the board. Overall is the NEW HOKU a great allround board for sliding, carving, cruising, downhill and freeriding.
