For those not “in the know”, the Whistler Longboard Festival is an annual event presented by Arbor Skateboards held in
Middle Earth British Columbia at the aptly-named Whistler Sliding Centre. As you view the recently released stack of clips from the event’s cable cam, be sure to set the video to 720p and turn your headphones up to receive all the scenic beauty and phat, trappy beats the video has to offer. Please also take note of the course’s eight directional reversals and lovely pavement. It’s as if the road was simply designed to be navigated by wheeled boards! [Spoiler alert: Bingo.] Open Quarter, Semis, Consolation and Finals are featured in Part 1 of Whistler’s Cable Cam release. And if this four minute video wasn’t enough, fear not! Part 2 — featuring Juniors, Women and 30+ Young Masters — is set to be released on January 27th.
