WFSA Talent Fund

To stimulate freestyle skateboard talents to join international contests, the WFSA has started a talent fund. If the candidate is approved, then she/he can receive money to cover some travel costs and thus visit a certain large contest (with WFSA approved status)!

Candidates should be at the beginning of their freestyle skateboarding career, independent of their actual age.

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

Below is the latest news that may be of interest to you. This mail will also be placed (here), where previous WFSA News mailings can also be viewed.

On 25th January, WFSA Treasurer and founder Bob Staton passed away at age 67. He was probably the oldest freestyler that still skated. We will all miss him and our thoughts are with his family. More: see below.

Starting from this month, I include Dream Flatland Tricks.
These are tricks that I haven't seen in videos and real life yet, so they may inspire the most talented skaters. The 2 next years I try to put 2 new ones in each monthly mailing.

This mailinglist now contains almost 900 e-mails from freestylers, even from countries like Australia, Brunei, Egypt, Estonia, Indonesia, Lithuania, Nigeria, Philippines, Russia, Samoa, South Africa, Ukraine and Viet Nam...

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

Below is the latest news that may be of interest to you.

Please note the attachment, which shows the inventor of many tricks in the seventies, Jim McCall.
Jim perhaps invented the flatground ollie (early 80's), but surely the 1-handed handstand (1976!), handstand tic-tacking (1976!), etc.

McCall was also a hero TO Rodney Mullen, who rode McCall's pro freestyle model deck from 1977 thru the middle of 1980.
Jim's freestyle model by Walker was probably the first production board ever to straighten the sides to near parallel. Jim and teammate Rodney Mullen preferred the basic straight-sided design for rail tricks over the more rounded sides that were common until then.

[WFSA] Freestyle News May 2011

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

The registration for the World Freestyle Championships in Malmö, Sweden is now open!

Due to the death of WFSA founder Bob Staton, and the development of completely new sorts of freestyle tricks (which use street elements), some WFSA Statutes changes became necessary.
The past months the 7 members of the WFSA Executive Board and the 14 members of the WFSA Board of Directors were able to discuss and vote upon 8 proposals.
Below are two of the accepted results.
1) “Freestyle Skateboarding” will be defined as:
Flatland Freestyle skateboarding on a flat area with no obstacles.
This of course does NOT limit event organizers, only the definition of our sport and the area in which the WFSA is active.
2) "World Ranking System"
This has to be developed by a special working group (SWG), suggested by Bob Staton and now continued by Hans Lucas. You can join this development/discussion via a reply to this post or a PM.

The objective is to arrange an annual (or bi-annual?) ranking system via points at large contests. Additionally, we could add a country ranking system.
To become effective and start with this task, this SWG must first contain 3 to 5 freestylers with a combined freestyle experience of at least 50 years.

If you want to receive a copy of the full Statutes and By-laws by e-mail, or if you would like to become a WFSA Board of Directors member, or if you want to take part in discussions, just reply to this mailing.
All 8 accepted proposals

To change your e-mail, just unsubscribe from your old e-mail address and then subscribe via your new e-mail address. (see below on how to)

However, he is best remembered for his incredible spinning ability. Russ Howell can spin 360's for a long, long time. His personal best is 163, a world record.

Seismic Introduces Tekton™ Bearings

Boulder, Colorado, USA - After more than two years in development, Seismic is proud to unveil the patent-pending Tekton™ bearing.
"The difference is the wide flange at the ends of the integrated half-spacers," said Seismic founder/owner Dan Gesmer. "The big, flat contact surfaces square up, co-align and self-stabilize inside your wheels."
"No elite freestylers have had a chance to ride the new Tekton bearings yet. However, the self-supporting, self-straightening flange interface protects them from stresses and strains better than any other bearing system ever seen. So they should hold up to the abuse of extreme flatland maneuvers far better and far longer. They'll also stay cleaner, due to their advanced seal design."

Tektons should not be confused with bearings that have their inner races stretched on one side to form a simple half-spacer.

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

Below is the latest news that may be of interest to you.

This edition contains a Rodney Mullen special, part 1.
In 1980, a young boy in full protective gear surprised everyone by skating at a contest in the Oceanside roller skating arena (San Diego), and beating the best freestylers by tricks that hardly anyone had seen before. A legend was born, and after that contest Rodney Mullens name rolled through the freestyle scene, especially because he was the inventor of so many tricks like the flatland ollie. Mullens runs were spiced up by making eye contact - I think that impresses the novice public more than the hardest tricks. Later Mullens secret came out: he used to skate every day, hours before he went to school and hours after school, in his father's garage.
Up until this day, almost every promising skater that shows up on Youtube is compared with him.
(Source: Action Now, Vol 7, number 6 January 1981 "The Day Freestyle Skateboarding Fell Back to Earth")
The second part of Mullens special will appear in the September issue of the WFSA Freestyle News mailing.

Enjoy!

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

Below is the latest news that may be of interest to you.

July was a very busy month with more than 5 freestyle contests and events. So send in your (links to) reports, videos and photos of these events.

You probably already know, but on 27th July 2012 the Summer Olympics in London start, with possibly some freestyle side-events. Think about how many sport fanatics and sports networks want to watch and film YOUR skills on the sidewalks of London!

At this time, event organizers already start with the preparation of their 2012 events by contacting potential sponsors. So when will YOU take action?

If you want to organize an event, make a web page (like on the World Freestyle Skateboard Association forum, or on Facebook), see if others are interested, and send your link to publish your event.

Enjoy!

Freestyle World Championship 2012 Location?

Like each year, the WFSA now also starts to invite experienced event organizers for their 2012 plans.
If you wonder about picking which date, then please note the annual
events that may take place around the same dates. See below for already planned freestyle events in 2012.
Also, please note that the US and Europe had/have a World Championship in 2010 and 2011, so other continents are especially invited to aim for the World Championship 2012.
Due to insurance issues, the WFSA will not sanction an event, but instead offer help and sponsoring where needed.
Please let us know before 1st December 2011.

It is also possible to plan your event as a backup location to the

[WFSA] Freestyle News (sent on 2nd September 2011)

Postby Hans Lucas » Wed Sep 07, 2011 6:42 am

Dear Freestyle Skateboarder,

Below is the latest news that may be of interest to you.

Last month I welcomed the famous freestyler Russ Howell as a new member of the [WFSA] Freestyle News mailinglist community. Russ has won numerous contests, and I consider Russ to be one of the godfathers of freestyle because he began skateboarding already in 1958. In the December 2011 issue of the [WFSA] Freestyle News mailing, one of his achievements will be mentioned in a special on freestyle/flatland skateboard World Records.
More on Russ Howell Skateboards (USA)

A few more days and the US Championships of Freestyle Skateboarding start in Philadelphia. BE THERE!

This edition of the [WFSA] Freestyle News contains the Rodney Mullen special, part 2.
Part 1 appeared in the July edition of the [WFSA] Freestyle News.

Enjoy!

Hans Lucas
WFSA Secretary

This model was around the time of the flat ground ollie that Rodney innovated.

Freestyle History: photo's of old skateboards

Some boards that the first freestylers used, clearly based upon the surfboard ...
Nash - Sidewalk Surfer - 1960's

GT Webb Solid oak - Webb trucks, Webb chalky open bearing wheels, classic Australian made 1960's

Old school freestyle skateboards (USA)

Tony Hallam does not sell these classic boards, but others -like SK8supply.com - do.
You may also want to check out E-Bay from time to time; sometimes a classic freestyle board pops up.

WFSA Board Member Kilian Martin Joins the Powell Team
19th August 2011

The Powell Peralta Team welcomes Kilian:
"Perhaps it takes someone special from outside the California epicenter of the sport to remind us that skateboarding is still very personal, innovative, FUN, and should never be limited by the popularity of any one segment of the sport." (George Powell)

"I’m so impressed. He is the most impressive skater I’ve seen in decades." (Stacey Peralta)

Next month mailing will contain a special on Kilian Martin.

Kilian, congratulations!

How one man changed skateboarding forever...

...and became a multimillionaire doing so.

In 2010, Skateboarding Magazine published an article about freestyle professional Steve Rocco.
How he was kicked from the Sims team, then started his own company. By doing so, Steve permanently changed the rules by which skateboarders do business. In 1998 Rocco sold World Industries (then the first publicly traded skateboard company on the stock market) for twenty-million dollars...

"P-Tip" - How to protect your deck from ollie wear and tear

It’s the tip of your skateboard where an ollie begins. The nose or tail of the deck and the point where the energy from the impact and interaction between the tip and the riding surface enters your deck, create the energy you need for many ollie tricks.

The P-Tip is designed and engineered to maximize the decks pop performance regardless of terrain.

What is a "P-Tip"?
P-Tip is invented by the company Performance Tip Technology.
These are in fact plastic extensions that should be adjusted to the nose and/or tail of the skateboard deck. They are not tailbones or nosebones; P-Tips are worked in the wood. When you have worn your P-Tip then you can turn it 180' and you have a new tail!

"P-Tip" Instructional Videos
Pirate Skateboards and One Skateboards have both made short instructional videos on the ease of (re-)placing a P-Tip and the best ways to set up the grip.

Instructions by Pirate Skateboards

Instructions by One Skateboards

"P-Tip Decks" Available Globally at Tailtap.com
You are now able to order boards internationally from Tailtap.

Pierre-André Senizergues' New House

French Former Pro Freestyler Pierre-André Senizergues, founder of Etnies and owner of Sole Technology and many other companies, incorporates gaps, ramps and rails to his new home in Malibu, California.

All components of the house can be used as barriers, from the couch to the freezer. Walls become quarterpipes, including gaps, handrails and stairs. Moreover, all edges of furniture and obstacles are protected by coping. The furniture that makes up the house was all created by the Skate Study House. Pierre-André is one of the persons behind the Skate Study House.
Skate Study House produces innovative designs inspired by the skateboard.

The video shows a prototype of the house, which is yet to be built. A full-scale mockup of the living area debuted in July at an exhibition on skateboarding culture in Paris, where the Etnies Pro Team tested it out.

Perhaps "streetstyle" should from now on be called "homestyle"?
