The original plan of skating far South to Agadir has changed. Upon realizing the coastal headwinds and gruesome pavement Aaron, Adam, and Paul turn East through almond plantations and wheat fields lined with palm trees…
The cultural exchange between longboarders and Moroccans seems to be going very well! Paul, Adam, and Aaron are invited by the most hospitable locals, receive large smiles from children and elders, and exchange tribal music.
Rayne Team Rider Paul Kent is a long distance pushing machine. Like most things, becoming such an elite competitor doesn’t come from just sitting around, it requires a certain amount of persistence and training.
From 0 to 70kmph on their skateboards and now 0 to 2000kms Long Treks on Skate Decks is BACK! Adam Colton, Paul Kent, and Aaron Enevoldsen teamed up in 2010 to revisit the pain, anguish and hilarity of traveling across countries with longboards. Following along the Long Treks Peru Y Bolivia documentary which cost them brutal sun burns, horrifying crashes, broken boards and near starvation, the three missed each other so much they had to do another trip. Morocco seemed to be the first choice as it is paved, culturally rich, and safe for tourists. They soon find out what the real struggle is… each other. In the attempt to circle the entire country by longboard, they lose their minds and go completely insane. So put on your 3D goggles and pour yourself some mint tea, you might find out something new about Morocco!

The 2011 re-release of the Long Treks Demonseed is HERE. Rayne Team Rider Paul Kent has been tweaking the design of the Demonseed over the past few years and to create the fastest, most efficient distance skating or commuting board ever made. This deck is an adaptation of the Rayne Demonseed but there are a slew of important changes to the design. The board is nimble, streamlined and lighter weight, this board will increase your pushing power while keeping you in control when things go down. Gnarly downhill’s are always a HUGE part or any true long distance skate or race, this board still has to be a formidable downhill machine. The board is designed to be used with 70-75mm wheels and is ideal with 170mm trucks or with 180mm trucks and inward set wheels such as inside out Orangatang Durians. To commemorate the end of the Long Treks Peru/ Bolivia video series and equip everone for a long summer of pushing we are releasing this very special deck to the public once again. Get them while you can, these boards are VERY limited and moving fast!
