Phoenix Arizona Downhill Longboard Clinics!

Cloud Ride Wheels. Black Longboards and Advanced Slide Labs team rider Tom "Sr. Pushbroom" McCarthy has been organizing downhill-longboard-oriented clinics for kids of all ages to meet up and learn different aspects of downhill skateboarding.

Each on of these clinics has a different theme. At each session lessons are taught about the safety of the road and how longboarders should treat an open road with the utmost respect, staying in his or her lane almost religiously. The skaters learned proper stopping and sliding/drifting techniques to control speed and navigate down some steep terrain in a very safe and fun manner!!

These clinics are great for the sport of downhill skateboarding and show the public longboarding can be a safe and fun activity for everyone. Below you can watch a bunch of longboard clinic videos!
