SYCLD is the World Championships of skateboard dancing, and was held in April this year. The dance crew are a tight knit group of longboarders, and more community than competitors…but someone has to be a winner right?

A really good article I read about SYCLD this year was by Simon Arsenidis on the Awhou website, it really captured what the weekend was like, and I stole this quote from him:

Family, we make our own universe for two days, composed out of new friendship, random game of skate and a lot of dance parties!
