Latest sponsor of The Long Push 2012

I am very happy to be able to announce that The Long Push 2012 will be rolling on ORANGATANG WHEELS distributed by J&R Sports (Tel: +44 (0)151 480 6973)



Over the first few weeks of training rides for The Long Push I tried several different set-ups to try and work out which was going to work best for me on my journey. To be completely honest, I haven't bought ANY longboard equipment over the years that has been anything other than of a really high standard. I think that says something about the passion that people in this business put into what they do. But after trying a few different wheels of varying sizes and durometers, I decided to stick with ORANGATANG Durians; a 75 mm wheel and the 83A durometer version. I've been seriously impressed with these wheels. They've rolled over everything in sight over the 176 miles rolled so far in training, and felt smooth doing it too.

Purple Orangatang Durians still going strong after 176 miles
ORANGATANG/J&R SPORTS have now supplied The Long Push 2012 with two more sets of 75mm, 80A In Heat's to continue using in training and on the 100 mile journey itself, and J&R also included in the package a set of (much needed) LOADED Jehu bearings, and a set of Paris 180's with risers!! Massive thanks to Kyle Chin at Loaded and Richard Birchwood at J&R Sports for making this happen and showing their support for The Long Push 2012.
