Skateboarding has from its inception evolved into several disciplines. One of them is Longboarding, also referred to as downhill skateboarding, and fits those with an affinity for speed. Downhill longboarding involves riding as fast as possible and keeping the board under control. Downhill longboarders zoom down steep hills at very high velocity, commonly reaching 80 km/h with record speeds of over 145 km/h.
Longboarding in Voss
The longboard races will be held at Giljavegen. The road towards Rio has top speeds approaching 90km/t and a multitude of different types of corners that will be a challenge for anyone trying to get down fast.
This arena is very spectator-friendly. Being in walking distance of the festival arena and having an access road to the mid part of the track, makes this a must-watch event for those attending this year's festival.
One of the unique things about Voss is all the other great hills within an hour's driving distance from Voss. Make sure to talk to the locals and skate everything Voss has to offer. Gather your crew and come to Voss!
