Last weekend there was an awesome freeride in Zaragoza. Our buddy Iñigo backed his bags and drove down from Vitoria-Gasteiz with his crew to join the fun. Here is his account of the stoke.
What a weekend! Saturday morning, 7am. Boards, protecs, food and stoke. Everything is ready to go. 3 hours later we arrived to La Muela. It was not our first time there, but something was moving in our stomach, there was something special.
Lots of cars beside the windmills. LGC and many more people were already there, from every corner of Spain. Sun was shining and the spot is pure gnar, what else? We got ready for the action, helmet, knee pads, gloves and of course our boards set up for speed.
Longboard Zaragoza had everything more than ready for a gnartastic day of freeride. They have worked SO hard for us they deserve our endless gratitude. The van was ready to take people to the inscription zone. After all the inscriptions and the briefing, we were ready for the speed madness.
La muela is a fast spot with some linked hairpins, and the wind was blowing on our back just to make things a little faster. Man it was great and challenging for us as we are not great downhill riders, lots of killer colemans, 180 standups, and a lot of fun. The van was overloaded of stoked people who wanted more and more action during the whole day.
After 7 hours, I had two huge flatspots in my wheels and my pucks were burning hahaha. But you might be thinking “what a boring day for those who don´t like speed” You couldn’t be more wrong. Everything was ready down the hill for a funny day. Slalom with Mr Doc Caribbean, stands with boards to test, a huge road for carving and music.
Local people from La Muela could see and taste what longboarding is. It was an epic day, and an epic day must end with an epic night. That night there was a bbq and a party in the camping area with the LGC. We danced, drank and laughed until very late, then we went to bed, sunday had also some action waiting for us.
On sunday we went to the Expo Zaragoza. A place where you can skate, chill, or just pass the hangover hahaha. I spent the morning with Borja and Doc Caribbean skating slalom. Everytime you stay near Doc, you learn something interesting hahaha. Later he taught freestyle old school tricks to the girls. We spent the afternoon talking with Longboard Zaragoza crew. After the “Fusión of Crews” we made in November, we are still close sisters and brothers. We love those crazy boys and girls hahaha.
And that’s all, an epic weekend, no doubt about it. Thanks to Longboard Zaragoza and LGC for making it possible!
