Downhill longboarding is a sport of friction. It’s how your wheels grip the tar, how tightly you hold your line, it’s that moment before your breath catches and you realize you’re going to have a new hole in your leathers.
At the Britannia Classic, all the gritty business is left on the track as laughs flow as freely as the shouts of exclamation directed at riders nailing a corner or an absolutely spectacular wipe out that turns the race on its head. This year, we got to participate as we gave each rider a Grind.
Many were surprised to hear that Leatherman had a tool directed at skateboarders and were even more shocked at just how much the tool accurately encompassed all their needs. We’re thrilled we were able to be part of a safe and family friendly event such as the Britannia Classic. It was awesome to witness their hard work pay off and young people to develop their skills and become world class athletes.
