Lau Riders have got the Freebord Spirit

By | Blog | No Comments
This edit is jam packed with highlights of the past year of shredding that the LAU Riders have done around the world. From Freebord launch ramp bungee jumping to huge hubba front side 5050s this montage is not one to miss out on. Here is what the LAU dudes had to say about this project.
Travel. Experiment. Ride. Share. Fear. Enjoy. Learn. Overpass limits.
This is a non-exhaustive list of attributes the LAU’ Riders have been through this season!
Huge thanks to all crews and riders that welcomed us all around the Freebord planet! From China to Madeira, through France, Tibet and of course Switzerland we had many occasions to regroup with our big family!
Enormous thanks to all the video makers that provided us with so many footages and to our video master, Jeffree for the uncountable hours of derush and mounting.
Last but not least, thanks to the LAU’ Riders crew members for the constant positive vibe, hard work and crazy ride ! You guys are the best !

#CafePierro

#CafePierro, behind the cam

Do you like coffee ? Do you like Freebord ? Then here is a way that offers Pierre Linckenheld to bring your favorite energizer directly in your hands. Working as a waiter at the Café de Grancy, Lausanne, this pro team rider had the idea to match his job with his passion : freebording.

To remind you the enjoyable result of this video cooked in one day, just clic play below.                                        


Thanks to the huge help of Arnaud Blin who edited and filmed the shots with his electronic stabilizer Ronin, the rendering could have been perfectly cleaned. Here are some snaps of the beast and the hunter.

But what was this crazy stuff made for ? The primary idea was to propose a new concept for the Best Submitted Video contest 2014 and actually, it won.
YEAY ! Remember last year, The Man with the Golden wheel also got this title; one year later, Freebord Suisse brings back the award of Best Submitted Video among more than 30 worldwide edits.


The disease didn’t stop in San Francisco. #CafePierro created the buzz all over internet, mainly in Switzerland, but also in France and amazingly in Spain and Canada. Extreme sport website such as 30°, Zapiks and X-Treme helped sharing this video. So did many blogs, for instance My Urban Planet, or TV Channels like Tracks on Arte. National newspapers – Le Matin & 24heures – published a complete report, and Couleur 3, local radio station, also developped this fashion phenomenon.


Since then, Pierre’s Café can be grateful to him considering the amount of incoming new consumers that is still arriving, yelling all day long »Hey, I saw your video ! »

As often, the funniest part isn’t the result, but the moments captured, lived and shared next to it. Let the characters pictures explain this to you.

Arnaud Blin from the CHoE crew just edited a final bonus video that reveals the ambiant fun that ruled the day. Grab a cup of coffee and catch a final laugh !

2013 was a great year for Pierre Linckenheld in the field of FB.

FBS has grown through various projects organized, which allowed Pierro to ride regularly with many international riders FB throughout the year.

But the ultimate moment of 2013 will be his trip to San Francisco, the Mecca of FB, the dream of every freeborder.

For him, it was a way to understand better  why he freebord.

It will remain an unforgettable memory of sessions where Pierre could ride with the best local Freeborders all these mythical spots that everybody had already seen and reviewed in videos that made all of us start freebording.

Special thanks : I want to thank my hosts at Freebord Mfg.. allowing me to see and live with them how they work so that we all have a Freebord under our feet to shred downhills every corner of the world!

Keep it up! Long live Freebord! Thank you friends
