The surfing world has it's eyed glued to the Vans Triple Crown and that's furry muff. But what about girl's longboards in China??? Parko - Slater world Title showdown, OK. But what about the Steinriede - Williams epic? Or perhaps Moniz - Meador? That's all happening too folks!

We don't have a webcast from China just in case someone runs in front of the camera wearing a Dalai Lama T-shirt... but you'll just have to take my word for the fact that the action is gripping stuff. Check out the event site for videos, photos, results and radness here
