The Visayan Longboarding Trilogy is the biggest longboarding event in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Over a hundred longboarders from different parts of the globe will participate the 9 day skate adventure in the best downhill spots in Cebu and Siquijor.

This 2017 the organizers of VLT decided to go back to the roots, keep it simple and maintain a tight camaraderie among downhill skateboarders in the island of Siquijor where it all started.
