The Holiday Greeting Card Contest Has Returned!

Greetings longboard aficionados,
We are pleased to announce we will be running our Holiday Greeting Card Contest for another round this season! We're looking for the most clever/humorous/creative/well-crafted longboard-related holiday greeting cards on this side of the Milky Way Galaxy. Let's get right to it! Here are the guidelines:

1. Submit an awesome homemade card! No off-the-shelf stuff here, please. (Multiple submissions are fine, but don't get too carried away.)
2. Entries must be no larger than 24"in any direction. ("Non-card" objects are fine, but don't expect to see them again after the contest is over.)
3. Entries must include the MuirSkate "wings" logo (the 'M') somewhere in the design. (Find it here.)
4. Entries must be MAILED IN and received at HQ no later than December 18th at 5pm.
MuirSkate HQ
Attn: Greeting Card Elf
7847 Dunbrook Rd, Suite B
San Diego, CA 92126
5. The contest is open to the countries we currently ship to: US, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

Now for the fun stuff:
Three winners will be chosen! By us? Kind of. Not entirely.
We'll select our top 10 favorite entries and post them to a Facebook album to let the fans of MuirSkate decide!
The three entries with the most likes on the evening of Sunday, December 23rd will be dubbed the winners.

The first place card (aka "le Grand Prize" aka "the one with the most likes") will receive a Sector 9 Downhill Division Complete (Your choice! [No, not Ginger.] Your choice for components, too. Don't worry, we'll discuss via email), Sector 9 Driver Gloves, The 187 Pro Skate Helmet, and (of course) a MuirSkate t-shirt and stickers.

The second place card will receive a set of PrettyNoiseLab's (aka PNL) "Strummer" Precision Trucks.

The third place card will receive a Palisades Hornet Downhill Skateboard Deck.

And now's the time to get started with those cards!
If you've got any questions about the contest, feel free to give us a holla via our Facebook Page.
If something changes, we'll post here (and on Facebook) with the update.

Happy skating!

Downhill Disco 2012 Results

We recently wrapped up the 2012 Downhill Disco Freeride-Inspired Cones Race. The event ended up being spread like butter over two days due to the inclement weather, but we all had a blast throwing long slides and hitting the four foot high kicker into puddles of rainwater while we waited for the storm clouds to do their thing. Day two brought about a large amount of sunshine and we re-set the course to get the main show started.

After nearly 8 hours of riding, the cones race(s) wrapped up and we had found our winners. The results are as follows.

Cones Race Results

Open Division
  1. Cameron Cozza
  2. Philip Crow

We would like to extend a big thank you to our supporting sponsors! (There are nearly too many to list here, so we've included them in the above image.) A lagre man-hug goes out to Marcus and the Wheelbase Magazine crew for providing coverage of the event! Here's that recap and rad photos!

Check out the event page on Facebook for some more recap info!

Here's a video provided by Cody Shea from Five Mile Longboards!

For Lincoln and for Lovers: An Upcoming Yard Sale!

How do you do, rippers?
We've got ourselves another in-house Yard Sale this coming weekend! Swing by the warehouse on Saturday or Sunday (February 11 & 12) for great deals on all products! We've got some extra special love for our blemished decks, too! All decks deemed "less-than-perfect" by our crew members will be discounted to 30% off. Everything else in the warehouse will be 15% off.

Keep in mind that this is an in-store only sale. (Sorry, non-locals!) If you're not in the southern California area, you should (1) plan a radical road trip or (2) find a SoCal friend to mail you some goodies! The Yard Sale is happening from 12-5p each day, so plan accordingly!
