1.) How did your group get together and when did you decide to form a little shred-clan?
Our team, East Coast Sessions, was formed when we were deciding a hill for a longboard event. We all really hit it off well, making an excellent video with lots of laughter and enjoyment. That was when we felt obligated to meet again, and we did this numerous more times until we became close enough to form the group EastCoastSessions!
Because of the fact that our team is based out of Charlotte, NC and that we are all groms it creates a challenge to be able to go to larger hills in the mountains of North Carolina, we typically skate a few hills a reasonable push from all of us. Most short and reasonably steep for Charlotte grade.
I do not believe there is a “quote-unquote" leader of ECS. But if I had to decide, I would say Patty (Patrick) since he was the genius who developed this group, exposing us to the public with a little help from the internet. BIG SHOUT OUT TO PATRICK!!!
The ECS seshes are very goofy. A group of friends filming, joking, shouting, and usually wearing similar clothing. Although we greatly enjoy our weekend get-togethers, we are not so sure the neighbors like it as much as we do! We set up our skate sessions during the week on a top secret Facebook group to meet up at our local slide hill, we typically shred from 11am to dark, with very few breaks. Afterwards, it’s a tradition to go eat at a restaurant, typically Brooklyn Pizza Parlor. The best pizza out there! Then we have a sick sleepover and the next day we skate again!
5.) What trick do you guys do most?
Pretty much all of us are trying to learn either slide big spins or 360 bs slides. Recently, our group has progressed a great amount. Especially towards technical freeride. Technical freeride is the best way to get creative on Charlotte hills. Since they are not long and you cannot do multiple large fast standies per run, we get technical with no comply speed checks, no taps and Chinese no-complies. We think that we almost spoil the tech part of freeride when we learn new tricks. When one person gets a trick everyone learns it, does it for 2 weeks then moves on. It’s a fast progression rate and we enjoy the challenges to keep our skills up.
We wouldn’t really say we are competitive with each other but we push each other to go faster and bigger. The reason a lot of us can progress through tricks so fast is because there is always someone pushing them and helping them to land it.
We have all been buying from daddies since we started longboard. They have the best customer service, shipping rates and VERY good prices. You can’t go wrong with any of that. To top all of that off everyone that we talk to at daddies is SOOOOO nice and amazing!
8.) How would your group take down a crowd of Zombies?
