A VISUAL DIARY

Whistler Longboard Festival

The second annual Whistler Longboard Festival took place July 15, 2012 at the Whistler Sliding Centre. The course is 1.6km, drops 300 metres and includes seven hairpin turns. Riders leave the start gate in groups of six, tucking to gain speed and trying to stay low and in control as they slide around corners.

  1. Amazing shots! Good work! The skaters did not complain about the wet asphalt? We have slalom skating next week and the organizers are deeply concerned about any rain coming up. Cheers, Andreas
