Puerto Rico/Guajataka Downhill 2013

faceplante boards The FB Crew consisting of Rob Wheeler, Ricky Wheeler, Kardon Allard, Jesse Wipf, and Brian Fitch are back from an EPIC week of surfing the waves and the asphalt in Puerto Rico. There are video yet to come of this shred trip. The surf was excellent throughout the week, and plenty of awesome hills to shred! We even got in some great days of bodysurfing on the FB Handboards, and also some awesome footage. Jesse Wipf became Faceplant Boardriders' first sponsored handboarder simply beacause he is SICK at it. He dropped in and ripped up so many waves over the week. They competed in the slide and slalom and Rob Wheeler took 3rd place in the Slalom riding the Gremlin with the WheelRZ Magic 8-0s, but apparently, there was nothing for 3rd place this year. The slide jam got rained on, but the show went on and it was more chaotic than the downhill. Pretty wild event. It was an EPIC shred trip, and we can't wait for net year!!!

2012 Recap

faceplante boards 2012 was a stellar year for FB! Along with building lots of new progressive longboard shapes, we also have introduced bodysurfing handboards and WheelRZ Longboard Wheels to our lineup. We plan to donate a percentage of our handboard sale profits in the upcoming year to Sandy Relief as we have seen and been a part of the devastation the Hurricane left behind, and we want to help be a part of the relief/rebuilding process. WheelRZ Wheels has had an amazing response amongst the longboard community, and we expect to come into 2013 with some awesome additions to our lineup. We had a blast skating and sponsoring a lot of jams this year, especially our first annual "Skate the Cape Shred Festival" which we will be having again in 2013 with plans of making it even bigger. We also are stoked on the addition of three new FB Riders this year: Kardon Allard and Austin Bouthillet with their hard charging freeride abilities and steeze along with Braxton Warrington who is progressing exponentially in his freeriding and downhill skills. FB is stoked for the upcoming 2013 year and will be introducing a few new progressive shapes as well as modifying some of our existing shapes. We will also be a sponsor to the Guajataka Downhill 2013 this coming January, and we will have a full FB Crew there representin'. The progression never ends at Faceplant Boardriders!
