The second race of the season from UNKLE.ca and another World Class event. The Whistler Longboard Festival 2011 has finally brought downhill skateboarding (speedboarding) [longboarding] to Whistler and stamped its place in the heart of action sports globally. Once again, Rayne Longboards supported not only as a sponsor of the event, but stoked sponsors of some of the best team riders in the world. Team Rayne was represented by Graeme Hystad, Cam McQueen, Mike Slota, Luke Melo, and Michael Bowditch. Bow, here all the way from Australia, unfortunately suffered his second shoulder injury of the trip and missed race day. Heal up Bow, long season ahead! Super stoked for the Whistler Longboard Festival 2012!!

Papa Les has been falling off a skateboard since the invention of roads... problem is he still falls... a lot. Most of the time you'll find him safely behind a desk, holding a camera or driving Tiffany, the rest of the time WATCH OUT!
