Nestled in Chinatown, on East Pender you’ll find yourself at Flatspot Longboards. Owner Mischa Chandler has been running workshops to help create a sense of community, promote safe riding, and most importantly, generate excitement around the growing sport.
Today we cover “The Birth of a Mini Workshop”, where old boards that have lost the favour or their owners are given a second wind. Chopping boards down to a fun, portable size essentially turns two boards into one.
The next workshop being hosted is the “Slide To Stop” workshop, teaching riders how to safely perform maneuvers to slow down and stop while riding. Find Flatspot on facebook or on their site for more information.
