Rayne team rider Patrick Switzer is putting together an amazing clinic for longboarders in Asia with the help of Epos GN Santilmo. The idea is to spread the stoke all over Asia by finding and helping develop community leaders in longboarding. This includes their basic safety on board skills as well as off board skills; like becoming an ambassador and helping to expand the sport. The easiest way for me to explain it in more detail is just to let them do the talking!

Our vision is to develop community leaders who can spread their knowledge and build local community through Asia.
The mission is to provide a cooperative learning environment where riders can develop well-rounded personal skills associated with longboarding, and encourage others with guidance from professionals in the sport.
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 skill.
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 through three main categories:
1, riding skills,
2, first aid and safety awareness, and
3, how to be an ambassador for your community.
Part of the VLT series adventure involves heavy camping. Come prepared to survive in nature!
Driftwood Local Ent. will be selling hammocks if needed.
The road wears wheels quickly! Bring an extra set or two.
The road will be made into three sections with checkpoint stations for shelter from the sun, water and where moto-taxi's will be ready to shuttle you back up!
