Nescafe' Big Break News
As many of you may already know, MUNRO Boards have been competing in the Nescafe' Big Break. On Wednesday the 19th of July we received some fantastic news that we had made it into the finals of the contest. MUNRO owner Adam Zemunic submitted his concept of mountain boarding and was placed in the top 14 entrats from Australia and New Zealand.
Adam pitched in Sydney last week against some very talented competition and unfortunately was just short of the top 6 despite some difficult discussions between the judges. He walkked away with some prize money, an awesome experience and the support from all involved that MUNRO Mountain Boards has great potential. "I'm giving this business all I've got. We have survived without prize money and we will continue to make personal sacrifices to see this awesome sport take off in Australia and beyond" says Adam.
"I'd like to wish the top 6 all the very best and encourage anyone with a dream to enter the comp next year. What ahve you got to loose?"

MUNRO Hubs Guide
At MUNRO we believe in assisting you in choosing the most appropriate gear for your use. That’s why this month we have included a guide to hubs on the market. Each hub is given a rating out of 1-5 with 5 being the best. All of these hubs are available on the hubs page of our site.
MUNRO 5 Spoke
Riders often select these hubs as a good compromise between weight, strength and price. They are easy to maintain and set up.
If you are after lightweight hubs, here is your answer. Great for freestyle and park riding.
MBS Rockstar Pro
The ultimate mountainboarding hub, strong and light. If you have the money, these are certainly worth the upgrade
A great alternative to rockstar hubs. Not quite as light but a tad stronger.
The original mountainboard hub. They are bombproof but also heavier then most on the market. Suitable for beginners and downhill riders.
World Freestyle Championships
The 2nd World Freestyle Mountainboard Championships got underway at the SWMB Center in the UK on the 23rd of July. Competitors from all around the world including the local UK riders, Russia, France, Belgium, Japan, USA and Switzerland.
The riding was intense with several double backflip attempts from Japanese action man Yuya Nakayama. It should be noted that several big name riders from the States were missing from the competition, however a well deserved victory to Downie.
1. Alex Downie (UK)
2. Tom Kirkman (UK)
3. AJ Lawson (USA)
