Filmed by Mike Pernia using a Gopro and uploaded by Mr. At Maculangan on his Vimeo account, this video of Dandoy Tongco dancing in his longboard during the Padyak Bayani Dos shows us that his skills in dancing in longboard has never faded. Dandoy together with Arjun Jimenez became popular because of their video on YouTube by Driftwood Local Ent., Dancer with no shoes that reached up to 24,500 views. Dandoy’s unique talent in longboarding carved his name as one of the best longboard dancer in our country.
Nice to Know:
Dancing is a resurgence of old-school tricks in longboarding that involves a variety of walking and spinning moves. Dancing originates from boardwalking in surfing, and has been recently popularized by innovators such as Adam Colton, and Adam Stokowski. A board is usually considered a dancing board when its around 50-60 inches long and can be up to 12 inches wide, and although most of the tricks can be performed on smaller decks, a larger deck provides a more comfortable platform and takes more skill to maneuver. source: wikepedia.org
For me, dancing in longboard is an art, a talent that only few can execute. Other than Dandoy, there are more longboarders that has the skills to dance in a longboard like Gerard Cancio, Mike Pernia, groms from Cebu like Pantoy, Vasse, and Bodec and many others out there who will soon rise and will perfect the art of dancing in a longboard.
