One thought on “gear list

  1. So I have a question, since you seem to have the lowdown on the whole hiking/boarding expedition:
    It seems like your trips are mostly skateboarding based and not hiking based, would it be do’able to do a hiking mostly, and longboarding less frequently?
    I know It would be doable but thought of consideration,
    I have been hiking the Application Trail for 4 months now, two left. Every ounce counts out here while walking. I am thinking about doing another long distance hiking trail Mountains-to-Sea, but it is not finished, about 800 k of roads. would there be any way to trim down the weight of the board? such as using a regular board but longboarding wheels, would it be comfortable after 800 kilometers? Or would you recommend an ultra light board for easy hiking.

    Sorry for the whole mess of questions, its all over the place like my thoughts of this next trip.

    Thanks very much for your help.
    Trail name-Caveman.
