CoastLongBoarding.Com check out the Coast LongBoarding website there are a lot of good pictures and videos there of their different events and gatherings.  From their site and talking to some of these guys it sure seems they like to have a very good time and they are a really fun and cool bunch.  LongBoarding has a great future and it will explode in popularity once more people are aware that there is even such a sport. 

Here is the Wikipedia definitions of LongBoard and LongBoarding

A longboard is a surfing variant of a skateboard, similar and related to a surfboard or snowboard with wheels. It is used for cruising, downhill racing, slalom racing, sliding, and/or transport. However, most stunts, and the boards themselves are very different from that of a typical skateboard. They usually are designed for the descent of a hill, slides, carves, manual or “dancing” with the board.

Longboarding is the act of riding on a longboard.

Longboarding is an offshoot of street skating, but, like all board sports, its roots lie in surfing. Developed as a single sport on the west coast in the 1950s, by the 1990s, Longboards and Skateboards branched off into their respective disciplines. With the right setup, a longboard can give the feeling of surfing on hard smooth surfaces. There are a variety of riding styles: downhill, cruising and carving, slalom, dancing, freeriding, vert and sliding

Wikipedia is looking for people or experts to add and clarify info on this soft of newish sport / fun thing to do.


Leather Wrestling Boots Custom Made

in Sports team Leather Jackets

Hi folks this post is about leather wrestling boots custom made in Canada by RD Wrestling Boots.  I used to watch wrestling alot back in the 70’s and 80’s and remember when i lived in Montreal i would see alot of wrestling boots in shoe repair shops some i recognized who they belonged too.  A lot of wrestlers came from the Montreal area in those days and always was a big wrestling town.  Since this blog is about leather i wanted to do a post about wrestling and basically the only leather they wear in the ring are boots sometimes pants, i have had some customers who are wrestlers buy some items usually jackets or pants.  Wrestling boots are neat because they are colorful and made custom for the wrestlers identity.  The guys at R D Wrestling Boots make high quality boots at a great price around $140-$260 with some extras the price will be a little more (lettering, sole lifts and laces in certain colors) they ship from Canada and the U.S.  These guys also do cowboy boots and Civil War type boots and shoes for recreating battles and for movies just give them a call if your interested in something like that.
