Angelina Spreeride was nothing less than a rad day of playing skateboards in the mountains of Cartago, Costa Rica. It was carried out in a gnarly hill apt for both speedboarding and freeriding. Both were done simultaneously and resulted in tricky and sketchy maneuvers from the speedboarders in order to avoid the riders sliding around at lower speeds. The amount of people that showed up was huge. Most events usually have over a hundred people hitting "Attending" on Facebook, but only a small fraction of those end up going. This event was the exception. There was a mass of skaters on the hill, around 70. The spot is no easy treat for beginners. It is steep with perfect pavement, making it one of the fastest freeride roads in the country. The amount of new faces was unbelievable, and there were a few revelations with crews that no one had seen before but shredded harder than most and definitely came to leave their mark on the scene. After a few hours of riding, a horse casually decided to dump his load in the middle of the road, leading to the first competition of the day: first one to cleanly slide over the fresh manure would receive a pack of bushings. It was rather disturbing to see the amount of people that actually went for it. Once that very classy demonstration of skateboarding concluded, a "longest standup slide jam" was set up. Riders had a certain amount of time to do all the slides they could. This ended up in a struggle to see who could push their limits the most. Riders went faster and further than they had ever gone before and pushed all their previous boundaries in just a few minutes. When some of the neighbors saw their main road clogged up with skaters having fun, they called the cops. The law came with the idea of kicking us out, but after a long, peaceful negotiation, they gave us some time before everyone would have to leave. Fortunately, the cops got stoked on the good environment and safe riding, and chilled on the hill for the rest of the day. A couple of friendly couples brought their grills and served some tasty steak and sausages to a few lucky riders, but the food wasn't enough and slowly people started to leave in order to please their tired bodies. Everyone left stoked, and the good vibes overflowed the days following the event. All in all, it was a day living the good life: skateboarding and hanging out with all the people that share your passion.
