2nd Sikad sa Kabankalan Longboard Push Race- Kabankalan City trip part 3

Day 1 – After we took a short rest and lunch in Zaycoland Resort and Hotel, our next agenda is to cover the Sinulog 2014 Invitational Shootfest: Day 2 in CPSU, we already missed the 4x4 dirt race and also the long board race, but along the way to the shootfest, we spotted some long board skaters racing in a downhill road here in Kabankalan City, we took a stop in the middle of the road and talked to the two skaters if they are okay for a photo shoot.

We panic as we saw the two skaters went down the road so fast riding their long board.

For the coverage of the Sikad sa Kabankalan long board race, just visit this Fb page for the photos -

Skater 1 : Kenjo

Skater 2: Angelo



The end of the downhill is a blind curve.

other skaters who stay down there are the look out if ever there are incoming vehicles
The skaters do a power slide just to brake and stop from accelerating forward down the road.

The skaters went back to the top of the hill just to get more skating road
I learned that Kabankalan City is a long board city spot for skaters.

Complete gear for safety!

I’m so glad that I brought my Olympus E-520 dslr with 40-150mm lens
