The Whistler Longboard Festival broke new ground this year when they introduced the Skate X Shoot competition to the program. Combining target shooting with distance pushing, the event provided skaters with a new challenge. And who doesn’t love playing with guns? Check out Rayne’s edit from the event.
For the first time ever, the 2012 Whistler Longboard Festival hosted the Skate X Shoot Presented by Rayne Longboards. Taking place at the Whistler Olympic Park (WOP) on on July 12, 2012. The morning included a 20km Endurance Race with a $1000 Cash Podium – won by Rayne’s Paul Kent. The Skateboard Biathlon (Skate x Shoot) similar to winter ski biathlon hosted in the afternoon carried a similar $1000 Cash Podium – also won by Rayne’s Paul Kent.
The Skate x Shoot tested speed, pushing, downhill, turns, agility, accuracy and stamina. Competitors skated up and down 10km of looping mountain trail-way, with two stops at the target range.
