As a group of disparate skateboarders from all Longskate disciplines, we realised that by combining organisational skills and resources we could provide a more consistent series of successful events than by working independently.
Volunteer driven, Hog Hill events are run by skaters for skaters.
Hog Hill Events now happen twice a year.
They are a fantastic opportunity to ride with a huge cross-section of the UK longboard scene: from beginners and those looking to learn, through to seasoned racers dusting off the cobwebs and catching up with friends.
Skate your style - freeride, race, luge, slide, dance, slalom, or take it easy and watch other people do the hard work.
Come along to the campsite in the evening and chill out with the other skaters in a great atmosphere - when we're at Lambourne End, expect a camp fire and some live music as well!
Helmets are mandatory while skating (including commuting around and flatland jam!) Helmets and gloves while sliding and skating the main hill, and Full Faces Mandatory for racing (we recommend kneepads) . We take safety seriously, as does our insurers (legal requirement) so we're well covered as long as you guys keep your lids on! If you fall on a different part (a bit without pads) then St John's Ambulance will be there to patch you up.
St John Ambulance is the nation’s leading first aid charity.
Every year, more than 400,000 people learn how to save a life through our training programmes, including hundreds of thousands of young people.
Our volunteers provide first aid in their communities, keeping people safe at events, and working alongside the NHS in response to 999 calls. We’re also always campaigning to raise awareness of first aid and directly educate the public.
Event services – We provide medical cover for events – from major sporting fixtures and music festivals to public gatherings and Hog Hill skate events.
