For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.
Longbboards in Changchun ! join and learn about this fantastic sport!
Latest Activity: Dec 24, 2012
This is a group dedicated to all skateboarders or ex-skateboarders who haven't got rid of the passion of riding freely over the deck of your dreams. Longboarding is not skateboarding.... it will allow you -former skateboarder, or simply curious person- to keep your pursuit for freedom up to date. Cruising over the forgotten streets of Changchun (just a few, but good ones) I will help you remember the feeling of the wind in your face, surfing the asphalt, mocking the crowded city in an impulse of self-liberation! And I also have soime extra decks that will get you going the first few times you try it. I will teach you, and if you like it, I will help you buy your own deck! We have cheap (but decent) chinese bamboo-decks and foreign decks as well. And if you don't like it, no problem! We will always receive you with our arms opened, even if you just wan to hang out, or take pictures. 随便 (sui bian) ! You don't need to perform any tricks, or to be cooler than others-You just need to feel better about yourself!
Note: Longboarding is NOT a conventional nor entirely safe sport. We will be glad to help you purchase your helmet, kneepads, elbowpads and any accessories you might need to feel safe while you're learning. However, achieving longboarding skills might involve accidents (i.e. fall over while you're speeding), so regardless of the help you'll receive during the training, this grup WILL NOT take legal or monetary responsibility for any accident that happens to you while you learn.
We're waiting for you!

Sorry Alejandro - I have been missing out not visiting this group more often. Great photos and videos. SO much can get lost as the top comment is so non-descriptive - just says you made a comment whereas you have done so much more.
On anotherpoint - fancy making a song together - I have an idea
Because you care too much about how you look.
Welcome to the team, man !
