The Boarding Hordes

Written by

skateboardEmerging from Fortress Lerner just now, Bwog was nearly mowed down by a swarm of young white male skateboarders, like a Critical Mass for the four wheeled set. They went on for minutes upon minutes — what could this be? Where do they come from? Do they have some kind of skateboarder phone tree?

If you know, please enlighten us!

UPDATE: Thanks to commenter #2, we now know this was the Broadway Bomb, “the worlds [sic] most dangerous Longboard Skateboard race.”  Today’s race was from 116th and Riverside to Bowling Green.

    200-250 people racing ~ 8 miles. Indeed a dangerous race but you can't match the feeling of weaving through buses and taxis.

    Winning time? Something like 35 or 40 minutes?
