    No problem, I'll point it out on a map when I'm home later if you like. Easiest way is to just get to Kings way via bus or car and just walk across the road though. Unless you like skating uphill in which you literally just follow the bike path from Greenwood trainstation all the way to the top.

    What kind of boards are you looking into and what discipline?

    Yeah I know the one.

    I am not sure what board yet (I am finding so much conflicting infomation online which makes it hard), but right now commuting and freestyle is what I am hoping to try (although I am a long way off either I think yet).

    I'm no freestyle pro, but that's what I'm learning, as well as using the same board for commuting.

    Me and my bro are still newbies really and we don't know many people in Perth (Pommie buggers here) so if you ever fancy a cruise or whatever, or if you're wondering about board setups or where to get some kit, just give us a shout.

    Well you are way ahead of me, I've only just figured out how to footbrake semi-effectively.

    Oh no, I can't escape them (my GF is a pom too)! I definitely will, thanks!

    Well here's some good news for your girldfriend, you're going to be going shopping shopping quite a bit once you really get into the switch g of foot breaking at decent speeds

    I wreck a pair of cons in about three or four months, which is if I dont fall off and wreck the toe shell.

    Hi there, not sure if anyone still uses this, but I'm wondering if anyone is interested in catching up for a skate north of the river? I'm really looking for someone who has a rough idea about safety slides if possible (which I'm struggling to get down and I have no one in my area that can tell me what I'm doing wrong). I'd probably shout you lunch or something

    Hey man, I am in Perth but south of the river (Rockingham). Only started longboarding like a week ago so wouldn't be any help with sliding.
    Just wondering if anyone knows some good hills or areas to try out. Its all pretty flat down here in Rocko. Some not too crazy hills to start out would be great, even if its a bit of a drive. Thanks

    Hey hayds87, I'd still be keen for a skate session if you're interested.

    Yeah man, that would be cool. Especially if you know some great spots; I have just been cruising down Rocko beach.
    Finding a time that suits might be tricky, but let me know what your schedule is like and we could work something out.

    South of the river here too in the Thornlie area.
    There were some good spots out in the hills but I wouldn't like to predict their traffic.

    @ScottieB may be able to help out location wise if he's still around.

    Well, I just went for a skate this afternoon. Did my first few shutdown slides so was pretty happy, then proceeded to pull my hamstring. So I'm out for a bit. I don't do facebook but once my hammy is better I'll get back on here and we can organise to meet up. Would be great to meet some other W.A longboarders

    Oh s*** man, that sucks! Hope you heal up quick. Yeah I hear that, although I love skating and don't mind going out by myself it would be cool to meet some other people too. Yeah give me a buzz and we'll arrange something.

    Hello guys,

    Just wondering where I could find out about upcoming events. I've tried ASRA but the people there aren't active anymore.

    A group would be nice too. I've heard there is a group on Facebook called West Aus Riders, but found nothing when I looked.

    Cheers

    Any girls starting out who are interested in catching up for a cruise?

    Hit me up!

    If not I don't mind catching up with guys willing to skate with a beginner. I can skate, just can't slide or anything yet

    Hi littlewolf, I am a guy but I don't mind cruising with beginners (I've been skating for over a year now). If you are interested in skating with someone, PM me and we can arrange some time.

    You're better off checking out West Oz Riders on Facebook (I'd link but I'm at work). There are a heap of guys on there who meet pretty reg.
