Here in Hawaii we are mid way through out race season and once again, next week we are off to another island to shred the gnar. Though all of you probably have it down by now...i figured i may as well go over a little essentials list of crucial things to have if your a traveling skater.

Here we go.

1) SKATEBOARD/ SKATEBOARDS ... but no more then 2! Less the better. You will all be squeezing into cars, gots to be able to breathe!

2) Helmet and Gear. Try to bring just 1 helmet, once again less is better. I slack when it comes to this. Make sure you have all safety gear you'll need. Extra pucks! and carry your extra wheels in a carry on to avoid the weight in the check in bag.

3) One man TENT, Bivy Sleeping Bag or Hammok. There are tons of tiny, easy to pack tents. Don't lug around a 5 person tent with a hundred poles! Even better is a waterproof bivy sleeping bag or a hammock.... these can be broken down easily and moved on to the next skate spot without hassle. 
Something like this 2 pole tent is $30 at sports authority

4) Foldable grill / 1 can stove. You gotta eat to live. And driving down the mountain from the camp spot to pay a ton for a meal isn't ideal either. Bring a foldable grill or one can stove ( available at walmart ) and kill it with the hot dogs, burgers and canned foods! 

5) Water Bottles. While skating you gotta keep hydrated. Bring something to hold water in. Score free water when you can. Or buy a big jug to keep it cheap. But don't be that guy to drink straight from the community jug thats gonna be lasting days!

6) Roof Rack. Have at least one roof rack/ surf strap you can use per car. Get the bags up there and you will save a load of space in the car. You'll be thanking me.

7) CAMERA. Capture the good times and great vibes.


So you all should know the rest for sure. Toothbrush, pantys, what not. But knowing these few things will help your trip flow a little smoother.

HawaiiWinterOutlawSeries Event 4 - The Maui Challenge 2.


Aloha wheel turners. 
Its the holiday season, so we are giving ourselves a treat for the Hawaii Winter Outlaw Series event 4. We are taking our 4th event over to Maui and jamming the gems their island has to offer. The boys over there have been scoping all possible courses and have found the perfect one. 

Here's some info straight from the Maui crew!

" The course is called ***** Farms. It's a development project in *****,
near *****, on a road called ** ****. This development hasn't begun
yet and there is nothing down there minus buttery pavement right to a
beach access. It's not even on google maps. The course is a nip under
2 minutes. I'll try to find camping that's nearby for racers.

Top speed: 35-40mph (could be faster in a pack)
Hazards: speed-bump (can be tucked over)
Tech: 3-4 tucking sweepers, hit top speed into a right that you can
pin if you do it right, followed closely by a drfity left 120* left
and a 100 foot straight, rolls into a flat left and a 200 yard flat
straight into grass. I filmed a raw run the other day, I just need to
get it from Jon's house..

The entire course is lined with grass on both sides, no driveways. The
reflectors and yellow line haven't been put in yet.
This course is walkable, however bumping the entry price $5 to pay off
some drivers sounds enticing.

$10 to enter the slide jam
$20 to enter the race
$25 for both events

The only real problem we may run into on this course would be rain.
***** is sort of 50/50 right now.. but we have a back up course an
hour away that just about never rains."

Please email skaterademaui@gmail.com by DECEMBER 20th to register for the event. 

All islands are coming out to jam this one... it's be a good one! See every one on Maui, Don't forget to register.
