The guys at ATC Productions and Project Doc have combined forces and made what has to be the best full length mountainboard video in years. Featuring the likes of Tom Kirkman, Mick Kirkman, Joe Dickson, Tuai Lovejoy, Dylan Warren and Andy Milkenovich, “giving birth to the RAD mag” follows the worlds best mountainboarders around Europe for one hell of a road trip.
Tanks, fireworks, frontboards down gnarly handrails, pierced ears, a swimming pool, corked 720’s, shit in the woods, backflips and deers; this video has it all. So what are you waiting for? Stop reading this and click PLAY, you’re about to witness the birth of something very, very special…
For the last few years Rhys and the rest of the gang who form the BFC (a mountainboard collective) have been running a series of mountainboard events. The events follow a jam style format where the riders vote on the winners. The events tend to focus on a few specific features at each event. These can be anything from a jump, a wall ride or a quarter pipe. Style and originality are as important and technical difficulty. The centres selected for the events are known for their local scene and progressive riding features.
Locations and Dates:
Knockhill MBC â€“ 23rd July

We have kindly been donated a number of board docks and board bags which we will be giving away to lucky email newsletter subscribers. If you have not already subscribed – use the sign up box to the right to sign up to our newsletter!
The Earth 2 Air board docks are a great way of showing off your prized board. They work with skateboards, longboards, snowboards, kitesurf boards and wakeboards. They are really easy to mount to the wall and come with all the necessary bits.
We also have some Earth 2 Air board bags. The Earth2air Mountainboard Bag is the perfect companion to your boarding session and is ideal for protecting your car and house from sand, mud and grass that collects on your board. It has been designed to be compact, lightweight and easily portable. It packs down into its own integrated stuff sack when not in use so it can be tucked away (or taken with you) when you’re off riding and won’t be left lying on the beach.
All you need to do is sign up to the Board Mag newsletter using the opt in box on the right hand side!
