Whistler Longboard Festival PNG 200The Whistler Longboard Festival is a 4 day celebration of all things skateboarding. The event is capped by the crown jewel competition the Canadian World Cup Downhill Race. During the event athletes must navigate the Whistler Sliding Centre road at breakneck speeds. This 1.6KN course features a 1000 foot vertical drop and seven 180 degree hairpin turns. Athletes must toe the line between gathering enough speed on the straight stretches and slowing down enough to take the corners safely. This event is always a crowd pleaser with thousands in attendance each year to watch.

Also at this year’s event is the newly incorporated slalom race and barrier contest as well as the returning skate jam event. For more information on this event head on over to the Whistler Longboard Festival website.
