The 4th annual Rip the Elwood Longboard competition was another successful event that brought together riders from VA, CO, OH, PA, DE, MD, NY, and NH. Riders travel long distances so they can challenge themselves on the skinny path that weaves down the open face of Elwood L. Crossan State Park. Riders also enjoy the downhill skatepark on the wide open road running parallel to the path which really makes this location a perfect venue for a longboarding event. Overall, this was a great event that bought out the local community as well as the far-flung longboard community. Families and young kids enjoyed the high speed action and positive attitudes from all the skaters. The event always seems to leave people with a contagious buzz that brings them back to our events for more. Next Event: Bethlehem Longboard Jam on October 1st, 2016
