Here at Mindless, we are stoked to say that we are
supporting ‘Longboarding For Peace’!
Initially set up by the man behind Concrete Wave magazine,
Michael Brooke, Longboarding for Peace, has moved around the world to unite
communities and has now hit the UK in the hope to get our kids riding together
Chris Pearson recently got in touch with Mindless to tell us
all about his plans for the UK branch, which he is running, and we said that we
would be happy to support the initiative.
Anything that gets kids out there on longboards is good to
The team and all the kids involved will be wearing their
helmets, covered in logos of all the supporters as well as riding some
fantastic boards and wheels. Be sure to look out for the Mindless products.
After the launch event, the organisers will be attending
charity events and schools in a bid to introduce longboarding for fitness, fun,
friendship and self worth.
Longboarding for Peace is going to be covered every quarter
in Concrete Wave magazine, so be sure to check it out for all the latest
updates and photos. There is also talk of it being featured in Thrill and Thane mags, so keep your eyes peeled!
If you want to help support the initiative, head over to
Facebook and like their page. There you will be able to find out all the
information you need to get involved, or just to give some support.
We will be back with updates as soon as we get them.

Here is episode 3 of Chris White's "The Skaatsplank Chronicles".
For those of you that don't know about the trip Chris rode a Mindless Velocity 1000km around The Netherlands.
He trained and carried out this trip last year in order to raise money and awareness for LIV!
The ever popular Mindless Rogue has had a graphic change for 2013.
Whether you are new to riding and just want to get to grips with the basics or if you fancy getting yourself a sick short pintail setup to cruise about on, the Rogue is ideal for you!
You may remember last year Chris White rode a Mindless Velocity deck and Creeper Wheels 1000km across Holland for the fantastic charity; LIV.
Chris filmed his trip and has now released the first two episodes of "The Skaatsplank Chronicles" and here they are!
Thrill Magazine has hit the stands at last!
The UK has seen a rapid increase in Longboarding over the past few years, and it’s now regarded as a competitive sport as well as a hobby. It seems only right to have a publication that supports this growing sport…
As well as the Mag be sure to check out Thrill's website to keep up to date with all things Longboarding!
