Our fun loving larger than life Portuguese brother Eko fuelled himself up on some home made pancakes, tasty shortbread treats, set up his new Pinnacle and then went for a skate. The end result was this edit.
As you can see Winter in Portugal looks pretty good.
It seem like the Pinnacle is fast becoming a favourite amongst our riders currently. It’s nice and stiff, with great options for wheel base adjustments, tasty CNC wheels wells, and 0.75 of rocker at 9.75″ wide. Great for a bit of freeride steeze or DH hill smashing.
Big thanks to Eko, Joao, Pernes for making this edit happen.
We just passed our target of £2012.00 raised for Macmillan!!! Thanks to all our sponsors and all who have donated!!!!
We have also had some help from the Toronto Board Meeting, which happened a couple of weeks ago with over 1000 skaters in attandance – Mike “Smooth Chicken” Mcgown has this to say:
“‘Greetings on a beautiful, sunny fall day in Toronto.
I hope everyone is still buzzing from the stoke that was Board Meeting 2012!
Sponsors donated hugely this year, and we were able to raise $1600 with the raffle!
The Board Meeting, in the past, has been able to help out groups like The Hilton Byrne Foundation, and with site maintenance fees for the Ontario Longboarding Forum. Like us for Hilto
n or OLF, the Bristol Board Meeting also raises raises money, for Macmillan Cancer Research.
This year, it has hit closer to home. Darren, one of the organizers in Bristol, has had his son diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Although they are raising money for the research foundation, that money rarely ever finds its way to those who are suffering. It pays doctors and receptionists.
This year, we will be donating $500 to Darren and his son, so that they can afford to continue living, travelling the 800 miles a month for chemo, and managing with medical expenses.
We are paying it forward like this, because The Board Meeting, “…all started with a dream.”, and what way to continue that feeling than to make one come true.
The rest of the funds raised will be used for next years event for some surprises that those of all ages can enjoy.
If anyone has any concerns or ideas for next years event, we’re always open to hearing what you guys have to say!
Peace out everyone, only 349 days until we turn it up to 11!
Darren and Casp, our stoke is with you!’”
See you on Saturday!! Keep donating and let’s see if we can DOUBLE our target!
Props to Harvey Thompson for putting the edit together . Nice one boys
We are proud to be supporting the Hog Hill Skills workshop with a huge pile of demo boards!
We’re in the middle of a pretty hectic week of travelling here at Lush HQ… showing off all our 2012 boards at Bright Trade Show in Berlin last weekend, and getting ready for ISPO in Munich next weekend. And a weekend of snowboarding after that
If you’re coming to ISPO, all our stuff is on the Vandem-MFG stand, A2/122. See you there for a beer!
We’ll have a full run down of events after the show… in the meantime, you can keep up to date with happenings on the Vandem-MFG Twitter account.

This is from the Consolation Final at the Kozakov Challenge last weekend – Sebastian Hertler beat George Mackenzie, Ramon and Dominik for fifth place overall. But if this photo is anything to go by, everyone’s a winner…
