Flatspot Techslide Tuesday

May 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 10:30 pm UTC+0

As you know we are trying to bring together the community, our main Goal is to revive all the events, hang-out, and sessions. The last data we have about this event is that it was celebrated for the last time in 2019, but this information could be wrong.

This event used to be a thing for 10 years and every kind of person used to hang out at tech slide. Since the last information about this event was from 2019 we can´t confirm that it is still happening. Still, since it is constantly being updated on our website, we are going to promote it so people start going more often!!

That being said, we will now add the content from Flatspotlongboard describing the event so you can have an idea of how it used to be!

The following text is not ours, it belongs to Flatspotlongboard.com :


Well, well, well! It looks like our local Techslide Tuesday Session has started to make like a tree and grow!

Calvin Skinner was here in Vancouver earlier this summer and has returned to Australia and it seems he has been inspired by the session and kicked one off in his community!

From Calvin Skinner:

Go freakin’ skate your local shit with the boys (and gals) on double kicks and do weird shit. Inspired by the fine work at flat spot longboard shop in Vancouver BC

While we’re stoked to see Techslide Tuesday headed to Australia, it seems this isn’t the only place picking up what we’re throwing down. PDX Downhill in Portland with Kurt Derow as the spirit, hallelujah, and has been getting Tuesday sessions together there as well.

We love seeing how everyone is inspired by what’s been going on here and hope to see more groups out Techsliding on Tuesdays. Send us a note and let us know where you’re hosting one if you do!!!

Here’s our last Techslide video from this past winter!

Techslide Tuesday has been jammed with faces new and old all summer long. As the days have gotten shorter, and colder, we have been stoked to still see some strong numbers joining us. Just because the weather turns, we don’t stop. Wetter can be better, especially when trying to learn some technical slides. No friction!!

Nevertheless, we were out in force last week and out for fun. Find out why we’re so slappy happy below….

A few of us have been talking about modifying some curbs near the top of the spot so we can get a few slappys in while we wait, or even just to start your line.

Cullen has very much championed the idea with Karson right in the thick of it. Let’s save that for later and start with a few tech slide staples.

Anthony is always killing it. Have you seen his new video!? (Link)

One more of Anthony I liked.

Harlen has all the blunts these days.

Even when he’s smashing a burger…

Karson has a trick he’s been working on where he gets up on his tail block for a blunt, all four wheels off the ground. It’s pretty rad and he’s nailed it a few times, but I was having a hard time capturing it.

What I want for focus on the left, but what I keep getting out of focus and wack on the right when he lands it. Either way, I have a deep collection of classic Karson skate faces.

With Karson and I trying to hit the actual photo I wanted, everyone else just took runs around me.

Newcomer to Techslide Tuesday Amos is shredding in his first few weeks and impresses us all with how fast he’s learning.

And Jenny got her first hands-down 360!!!

Coming by me faster than anyone on some big softies was Finn. While he was paying no attention to me, it was hard to time things.

But once he realized I was trying to take a photo of him, he gave me a little razzle-dazzle.

Not sure how much I love the photo but haven’t had a bunch of time to play with it either.

As things calmed down heading down the hill, things picked up at the top. Some of the modifications were dry enough to test out.

Reese had the first real Slappy on the freshness.

Cullen testing out his handy work.

I think Karson had my favorite slappy shots of the night. But I think Harlen was the most consistent on the curb by far.

This was ultimately the shot I wanted, but Harlen is missing an arm… then he rolled up his sleeves a bit later for an alternate angle.

Anyways, Techslide Tuesday is alive and well and going to be going all Fall and Winter. Check out the Facebook page or hit the event calendar to get details and directions or send us a message!
