Get it started! It shouldn't be that hard, and it'll probably be the best choice of your college life (assuming you are in college).

Sorry, this made me laugh. I am a co-founder of BSU's paintball club and any club start-up is hard. I'm definitely glad I did helped found the club, but don't take it too lightly.

Things we had to deal with:
1) Write a constitution for the club
2) Deal with college Bureaucracy on a weekly basis
3) Recruit new members (not nearly as easy as it sounds)
4) Club meetings
5) Community Service
6) Getting your money out of the club account is 10000 times harder to pay for something than getting it in (surprise)
7) Write and defend your budget for the next year
The list goes on...

I definitely learned a lot of valuable lessons through the experience, but something you should ask yourself first is "Do I care about sharing my passion for longboarding with others enough to deal with the time commitment"? If the answer is yes, then get a few friends together who feel the same way and go for it.

However, you could always start an unofficial club that just meets up every once and while to skate. After all, that's really all your normal group of friends you skate with is anyways in a sense. You don't need a club to find more people interested in longboarding.

Also, there are benefits of being recognized by your university. For the paintball club, it was some funding (not full funding by a long shot). I probably would not have competed in any NPPL events ever had the club fund not covered entry fees. Just remember you get out what you put in. Less actually.

Damn. I didn't know it took that much.
Well you said it yourself, if the outcome outweighs the work then it's worth it! Maybe a good idea is to go around and see how many people are actually interested in longboarding on your campus?

haha i meant the output is less than what you put in. For normal club members they get more out than they put in usually but not for those who have to keep everything running.

Edit: lots of people on my campus longboard, but very few are interested in anything besides cruising. I did find a new person who was interested today though. I stopped to talk to him because he had an EW superglider, and it was the first EW board on campus besides mine I have seen. Don't forget I'm in Idaho.

i just bought asl diamonds. super atoms are super icey they just didnt last very long. the way i figure it, if they last at least twice as long they are worth it.

Yeah, that makes sense.
Why aren't more people actually longboarding in Idaho? Rainy weather??

It's mostly just an unknown sport. We actually have a great area for it if you know where to look.

Yeah, I guess it's that way where I'm from, too. I tried telling a friend that you could do tricks on a longboard and told me I was wrong....? But she's just hard-headed. I somehow choose to follow sports that are just not well known, and that people pretty much make fun of. Oh well.. They're missing out.

Starting/Running clubs is hard like aapter said. I played a part in my school's paintball club last year and it was not easy. I dont want to do a bunch of paperwork, I just wanna go skate.


I had the chance to do some mountain exploring with friends today. We found and skated some sweet runs. I'll have footage from one of them up in a bit.

I found my old flip camera and brought it out today to get some raw footage with my friend. I'll throw up a clip of me stopping/doing a speed check. If anyone has input on how to get myself doing these things all the way to a 180/end up switch.. with no problem let me know.

As of right now i think im actually finding my "sweet spot" on it. Although i wonder so bad how it is sliding with a board that has a better concave and less flex then my dervish. I'm considering the DK penguin now.
