In a small Washington state town called Goldendale, right near the Columbia River Gorge, sits a road called Maryhill Loops. Maryhill is 2.2 miles of perfectly smooth pavement and features over 15 beautifully banked turns. It is an easy track to ride down, but hard to race because everyone is going fast because none of the turns require the rider to drift. Because of the course’s uniquiness, riders from all over the world come to skate the road, making Maryhill the Mecca of longboarding.

Checkout this video of the event done by one of my sponsors Moonshine MFG:

Here are a few photos to give you an idea of how fun and unique Maryhill is:

This year Maryhill had a full Brazilian podium with Max Ballesteros in 1st, Thiago Lessa (left) in 2nd, and Carlos Paixao (right)  in 3rd

I got first in Women’s and just like last year, I had to drink out of my trophy

 

Huge Thank You’s go out to the Maryhill Ratz for reviving the race, and as usual thanks a bunch to my sponsors:
