The inaugural King of the Longboard will crown the most complete surfer in both traditional boards and performance equipment.

The ASP Europe Specialty event aims to attract the Old Continent's best longboarders in an innovative format of competition. The contest will be held between October 18th-19th, in Playa de Somo, Cantabria, in Spain.

"The King of the Longboard: Classic vs Performance is an innovative event created after many years of experience running longboard events and listening to the opinions of all the riders that compete in our events," explains Pedro Gutierrez, event organizer.

"For this first edition there will be a 24-man format where they must enter in two heats. One with a classic longboard and the other with a modern longboard counting the two best rides in each heat."

Who's the most complete longboarder in both classic and modern disciplines? Armando Colucci, Ben Skinner and Alexis Deniel have already been confirmed in the King of the Longboard.
