Get prepped for a long distance skateboarding adventure with these go-anywhere hero products…
When you need to carry your essentials (everyone needs clean pants) while you skate, you need a reliable, technical dry bag. This 40 litre Polyamide bag by Musto is guaranteed waterproof and uses innovative heat sealed straps and no zips, so is impenetrable by water. Whilst not a skate brand per se, we simply couldn't not include this Musto bag as it was used by Jonny Snow on his 370 mile skate, keeping his gear dry despite facing harsh conditions for 12 days on the trot.
A longboard is a good choice for long distance skating. This Natural Delight setup by Earthship offers a lovely smooth ride. It’s made from 7 Ply Maple wood and measures 37.5" x 10". It comes with Earthship wheels (68mm x 57mm, 83A Smooth ride), Earthship 50mm stone finished trucks and Earthship Speed chrome ABEC-5 bearings. We love the Spencer Reynolds graphics too, enhanced by the clear sand finish grip tape. It’s your perfect travel buddy.
Helmets are an essential piece of kit for any kind of skateboarding. We like this helmet from Mystic as you can use it for a multitude of sports and we really love lots of sports! It’s made from high impact thermo plastic and features a lightweight outer shell with ventilation holes. Other features include adjustable head strap, quick release chin closure, detachable neoprene ear covers and detachable fit mesh pads.
With the British weather being spectacularly unpredictable, gear for long distance skateboarding needs to perform in all conditions. This 3-layer soft shell jacket by Mystic offers water resistance to 5000mm, boasts waterproof zippers and cocooning system at hood. Furthermore, it has fantastic breathability (5000G/M2/24HR) and offers 4-way stretch so your movement isn’t compromised.
You’d be crazy to head off on a long distance skate without a dedicated multi-tool. New for 2016, the Northcore skate multi-tool has everything you need to maintain your board, including a Phillips head screwdriver, an Allen key for mounting hardware and three sizes of sockets for wheels, trucks and hardware. Strong, practical and only £5.98 – we love it!
The best adventures take you off the beaten track, which can mean forgoing the luxury of being able to charge your phone everyday. That’s where the Pepple Smartstick comes in handy, allowing you to charge your portable device on the move without the need for mains power. It’s small and light and the rechargeable battery will provide up to one full charge on your Smartphone. Now you can still show everyone at home what they’re missing!
