Hiking and SlingBoarding Perfect Together
Many people think that the best part of hiking is the fitness you gain, but I believe the best part is experiencing all of the freedom that the outdoors has to offer. Turn off the cell phone and let it all go with a power down. Breathe the fresh air of the forest, mountains, deserts, plains or parks and recharge on nature. How can you possibly focus on anything but the beauty around you? The trees provide a natural ceiling that also lets just some beams of the sunlight through, it is such a simple and amazing setting.
I like to sit along the cascading mountain walls with my girlfriend and listen to the drip-drop of icicles melting into what become rushing rivers at the bottom. Want to learn more about all of the facets of hiking from the preparation to the appreciation, here is an article that covers it all https://hobbyhelp.com/hiking/
I can only offer one way to enhance this surreal experience; add in the SlingBoard! For those of you who don’t know yet a SlingBoard is this wicked new type of board where they twisted up and reshaped what was a regular old longboard into to this new deck shape with these huge and gnarly drops at each end, then they stretched the board out with wings that make it as wide as a paddleboard, and then they put bicycle wheels on it! So it’s this ridiculous hybrid that can go anywhere a bicycle can go with a ride that feels like a Cadillac!
Then to make it even more fun, the company that made that also developed a hyper charged land paddle, by putting some kind of power band system in it! So you can cruise along and let the stick propel you, or you can go paddle faster and get 3X the speed! It creates a fantastic full body toning and cardio workout.
What’s best about the experience is that I can go to any state park with trails anywhere in the country from CO, to NY, to FL, anywhere really and rip through trails having an experience that rivals snowboarding, paddle boarding, or wake boarding and walk away getting an incredible workout! In CO I ride trails along the mountains stopping from time to time to appreciate the views from some of the plateaus. I have SlingBoarded at dusk in the hard sand along the Atlantic Ocean in Daytona beach and through the forests of massive trees in WA state, each leaving me with memories that I will keep for a lifetime! That to me is one of the only things that truly adds to the experience of hiking. Thank you SlingBoard!
