Guess what? it’s nearly time for Summer Swine Stomp! This is the Summer edition of one of three Hog Hill Events that happen each year. The Hog Hill longboarding events are central to the UK Longboard community calendar and we’re once again very happy to be a main sponsor for the event.
The Swine Stomp will be taking place from:
July 14th – July 15th 2018
Redbridge Cycle Centre – Forest Rd, Hainault – Ilford IG6 3HP
“Each occasion is 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.”

The best thing about Swine Stomp is the freedom to skate your style – if you specialise in freeride, race, luge, slide, dance, slalom you’re free to take part in events or races that cater to your style. Alternatively, try something new or watch other people do the hard work.
Please note that to participate in Swine Stomp competitions you must wear a helmet to ride! This is important for your safety, and the organisers won’t let you ride without one. We also recommend gloves, and require them for the downhill events.
If you’re DownHhill racing, you’ll need a full face, and we strongly recommend additional pads (knees, elbows, etc)
Below is a loose schedule for events on each Day
Saturday (1pm – 6pm)
- Martin Swenney Memorial Trophy – Old School Tight Slalom
- Slide & Dance James
- Main Hill Freeride
- Beginner sessions
Sunday (9.30am – 5.30pm)
- Electric Skate Road Race
- Giant Slalom
- DH Racing
- Slalom Taster Session
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.
