Coast Longboarding Gold Medals.
Ground control to Sector 9, the Carbon Flight has landed. 5-plies of maple sandwiched between carbon fiber and fiberglass has never looked so good. This board comes complete with everything you need to glide across any paved surface... and some unpaved. Watch as the Downhill Division puts it through its paces.
On the heels of the Catalina Island Classic, our old friend, and Grind TV’s colorful character Chris Cote reached out to us about the current state of downhill. He wanted to get caught up with the scene, so we sat him down with Louis Pilloni. Chris asked, Louis answered; get a load of these two.
Harrison Depass is fast, speedy, agile, swift and whatever other rapid synonyms you can think of. Try to keep up in this quick clip of Harrison ripping down a beach-bound bomber.
Returning back to the island getaway for a lucky 3rd year meant that the Downhill Division had one thing on their mind... win everything! The competition was fierce, the party was legendary, and when the dust settled local bomber AJ Haiby had claimed the crown! Congrats to all of the riders who made the journey and raced their wheels off!
The Downhill Division invaded The Catalina Island Classic winning the race over 128 of the world's best downhill skateboarders. Follow the Sector 9 team down the race course on this tight technical track as Chance Gaul and Ethan Lau lead the pack. Congratulations to A.J. Haiby on the win! Full video coming soon...
Out on Catalina island the Downhill Division leathers could be seen scattered over the race course all weekend. In nearly every heat there was at least one 9-ball going fast for the black and yellow. When it was all said and done, San Diego native AJ Haiby, stood on top of the podium $4000 richer. This is his 2nd win a month, look out for a lot more from AJ as race season continues.
With the Australian summer coming to a close Chad Gibson and the crew from Animal House Reference have been exploring, filming, and skating as much as they can. Gibbo nails a flowy raw run then cools off with some cliff jumping.
