Hobie Rock and Roll sequence. Kevin Moore currently the top park rider in Califronia amateur competition, depends on a Park Machine when he plays... The riffs kevin blasts-out in vertical terrain are clean, fast, and rad! He needsfully functional, no jive, high-performance equipment. A strong, light weight Park Machine and Conical Claws do the trick. If you want skating gear that out performs the others, ask to see the Hobie line at your local Pro shop.
Let's look at the facts. Banked Slalom provides the ultimate test for park wheels. When you race for cash every fraction of a second counts. You ride the fastest wheels, or you get blown away. Thirty-five hungry pros battled for three days at the Runway. When the smoke cleared it was an obvious case of total domination. The top ten finalists all rode Claws Wheels.
Hobie '79, will blow your mind!!!!! The Pro's Choice.

When it comes to spinning 360's Richie is hotter than a Chili Pepper, consistently hitting over 60! Besides being the world's best at spinning, he is an excellent freestyle skater and a radical bank rider, Richie began skating three years ago with the help of his older brothers David and Rene, both hot riders on the Sky Hooks and Pepsi Teams. With the help of good friend Len Miryoda, Richie and coach Dale Smith have developed spinning techniques and custom equipment that are definitely state of the art.

The important thing is to be in goo physical shape , practice diligently, and ride quality equipment that is tuned in to your height and weight.

The source of quality, Hobie Skateboards. The first wooden rocker board specifically designed to rip parks, pools, bowls, and banks. The Skatepark comes in lengths of 26", 28", and 30" and has routed wheel wells. The rocker gives a low center of gravity. Allowing you to "hug the walls." The design also makes it fantastic for flatland and freestyle. Lots of copies are out... Stick with the original park stick: The Hobie Skatepark Rider. No image shown of Rider.
