ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

Sydney downhill does not exist. No one skates down mountain roads. Everyone here sticks to the suburbs and local bombs. There are no good downhill runs in sydney. Everything is flat.

Please do not ask where to go skateboarding, because we dont know. We dont actually skate in sydney, we all ride scooters...

ok, so I haven't dug through the last 18 pages ,)
but wanted to know of any beginner hills in the Sydney area (or part/end runs on some more hectic slopes) to get a feel for the extra speed. I will only be riding a 34" Street style deck with 215's and some soft wheels (70somethings) (so I'm thinking I don't want to exceed 40 - 50km...) Also I've only ever done hills with 95a wheels, so want to try and get some movement (at higher speeds) with vastly softer wheels (70 somethings) - is this more difficult on a stretched street deck than say, what I've seen on a proper longboard set up? I use to do ye olde Coleman(?) slides back in the late 80's, but not at high speed, and have difficulty visualising potential success ,)
From what I've seen on the net, people tend to stick with harder wheels on shorter decks, and the long boards seem more stable with the softer wheels when sliding/ speed checking.
Thanks,

Keep your eyes peeled for any sessions at the Pumpstation up in the blue mtns. There's a thread in existence already you can search for in here. Subscribe to it and whenever someone makes a post in there you'll receive an email. We normally go there in numbers so you can ride other peoples boards to get a taste.

What a sick day, everyone ripping down keira and waterworld.
Cheers for the skate boys, cant wait for next week!
Eleven riders and lotsa carnage at Waterworld, but no injuries. It's the "easy" hill, but the last corner is seriously dangerous - very easy to drift to the wrong side of the road - just about all of us did at one stage or another today. A lot of leather got left on the road and B-rad needs a new helmet.
And jase got very personal with the gaurd rail.
