What if, and it's a big "What if", the people who moderate the longboard community, and idk what their responsibilities are as moderators but based off my assumption of what that is they seem fit for the job, hosted like a Vingle Slide Jam, or Longboard Festival, but it was at like a good hill, or skatepark, or skatepark by a hill, or what have you, and they only got publicity for the event through Vingle, and you could sign up maybe get a T-shirt and have companies there with booths, or make it super casual like everyone just shows up to ride, there are so many ways this could be done. But like a longboarders summit, in the name of Vingle, and it could be in a different part of the states each year so people could take turns having to travel to it. Idk, you get what I mean. It's no small feat, but that'd be cool. Also on a side note, what's a good way to hear about all the longboard events already in existence? Like dates/times/locations/info before they happen, so you can plan shit and actually go
Lol honestly a lot of the skaters on here aren't old enough to travel by themselves. I hope by the spring we can grow to the point where there's a Vingle crew in every major city! And maybe ppl in outlying towns can travel from time to time, we should work on localized networking
@AlbertDeCastro I'm all for this but we don't know everyone's financial situations, or if they're even allowed to go. Also, we would need an incredible amount of funding with an ambulance on site just in case anything were to go wrong. Fun things ain't cheap man, it sucks.
@ThtYoungElwoodJ As much as I love the idea, and as much as Vingle has helped us before, I doubt they would be willing to put on something like this. That's not stopping us from doing it ourselves though..
@steezus Well yeah i don't know who would/could pay for it, it'd have to be sponsored by like Redbull or something. Because Vingle is just a social media like facebook or twitter, they're not really interested in longboarding particularly although it could be good publicity for Vingle which seems to be a little-known app. But yeah the whole thing is beyond me, it'd take an act of god to make happen, or that one guy that never gave up and went through contacting tons of companies to get enough sponsors and then planned all the stuff. idk, it would take someone who has professionally set up such an event before. It's not impossible, but its damn near close the more I think about it
