This past weekend Toronto was host to two grassroots longboard events.  The Jane Paths Wet and Whacky Wace was held on Saturday July 7th, followed by the 30th Super Mellow Beach Cruise on Sunday July 8th on Toronto’s waterfront paths in the beaches.

The Jane Paths Wet and Whacky Wace is the brain child of Joey Marion, noted for hosting other Toronto events such as the Jane Paths Spooky Shred. This years Jane Paths event featured tons of water balloons, super soakers, and lots of sliding in puddles while trying to hold a line. Not an easy feat when people are trying to blast water in your face.

The Super Mellow Beach Cruise was created by Toronto’s Suzanne Nuttall. This Sunday marked the 30th SMBC, an event which started in 2007 and has since been hosted by various  members of the Ontariolongboarding.com community. A casual cruise through Toronto’s waterfront paths in the beaches, this event runs every second Sunday, from early summer right into October! A great event for newcomers  or anyone looking for a relaxing skate amongst friends and fellow riders. Check out some photos below:

I took another group photo after climbing a tree, to try and get a better angle. That photo can be seen Here.

Both events saw great attendance, lots of stoke and some fantastic weather. S&J Sales was happy to have helped Sponsor the Wet and Whacky, and I was fortunate enough to go out and skate the SMBC. All in all, a great weekend for longboarders in Toronto looking to get out and skate with friends.
