Whistler is a beautiful place with amazing roads to skate. Once a year the city shuts down one of the best and hosts the Whistler Longboard Festival. Louis Pilloni, Jeff Budro, Chance Gaul, Daniel Luna, Matt Kienzle, and Ozzy Gabe headed up to the land of Maple and laid down some fast times. Rain or Shine these guys were skating!

In with the new and in with the old. Meaning Jeff Budro nails 3rd in Masters and Chance Gaul follows suit in Juniors, while Louis got 5th in the Pro division. Well done lads!
Louis straps on the GoPro and lets you get the feel of what it’s like to go down a hill like a Indy car. Wow! These guys are getting fast!
Congratulations to Sector 9 riders, Louis Pilloni and George Mackenzie, on their 2nd and 7th place finish at the Whistler Skateboard Festival.

The Sector 9 Downhill Division is up in Vancouver, British Columbia for the Whistler Downhill Festival this coming weekend. Even though it’s raining, they are making the best of it sliding around the wet patches in Deep Cove and riding some motocycles in the Sand Pits. Keep an eye out for the next S9 Look Book to see the whole scoop.
