S.M.C. description

Our mission is to develop community leaders who can spread their knowledge and build local community throughout Asia. To provide a cooperative learning environment and encouraging others with guidance from professionals in the sport where riders can develop well-rounded skate and interpersonal skills associated with longboarding and their community involvement.

We aim to attract community leaders and active members of widespread Asian communities who are interested in learning more about being involved than simply riding skills.
The collaboration of the geographically disconnected skate communities of Asia allows for a chance to co-operatively learn riding safety and skills that are not easily taught in a competitive environment.

Riders will be instructed to be “Super Mango’s” through three main subjects:

  1. Injury prevention & safety
  2. Riding skills and how to instruct others to learn
  3. How to keep a skate spot and being conscious in your community

Standup race

Afternoon of April 12
The race will be a 32-man tree single elimination bracket with losers racing for all positions. Tape will be provided for the pucks, marking it when used. Use of head elbows knuckles and a knee is allowed, but looks kooky.


Part of the VLT series adventure involves heavy camping. Come prepared to survive in nature and travel light! Driftwood Local Ent. will be selling hammocks if needed.

The road wears wheels quickly! Bring an extra set or two.

The road is split up into four sections with checkpoint stations built for shelter from the sun, water and where moto-taxi’s will be waiting to shuttle you back up!

Rider’s who are not comfortable to skate the full road have the option to take a moto-taxi to the section where they would like to ride or back down to town next to the ocean.
