This past weekend Team Rayne Longboards headed to the Puerto Rican coast for the Guajataka (Guajataca ? lol) Downhill 2011. Rayne was an event sponsor and GDH2011 was madness with over 30,000 spectators through out the weekend's Slide, Slalom and Downhill Skateboarding races, not to mention live music, DJs, sun, sand, and surf. Mike Slota (injured), Graham Buksa and Kevin Reimer headed over 6000Km south from BC to attend, while new Puerto Rican local team riders Jose Guzman and Micah Gutierrez just had to take a skate down the road from home.
When all was said and done, Team Rayne took 1st in the Masters (Graham) and 1st in the Open/Pro (Kevin)!! 2011 is looking might nice!!
If you get the chance and have the dough, the GDH2012 is bound to be one of the premier events of the 2012 season. Don't miss out on this skate and surf paradise. Many thanks to Bobby Stack, Sheldon Jacobsen, The Florida Crew, and The Pirata Surf Club!
Puerto Rico FTW!!
