• Toronto’s FUBU 6 – Event Recap & Best Photos!

    Words by Fubu 6 organiser Miz Molly All photos by Johnathan Nuss from Skate Invaders

    Toronto Girls Longboarding’s 6th annual FUBU was a huge success last weekend! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the stoke was high for newcomers and old friends alike.
    On Saturday our ladies took a social cruise exploring downtown Toronto’s waterfront, followed by a classy dinner and an afterparty. Sunday was full of games and fun with a slalom, a time trial, a push race and a dance contest in one of Toronto’s downtown parks. Everybody who came out had a blast, including a slew of our favourite guys dressed up as their female alter egos! We were even lucky enough to meet one of our participants’ (Morrah) newborn Kamryn. We made a lot of new friends, and are so stoked to spend the rest of the season shredding with the other ladies we’ve met!
    Nothing brings the TGL community together quite like FUBU. Thank you everyone!

  • 2nd Annual FUBU All-Girls Longboard Event

    Welcome ladies and gents to the 2nd Annual FUBU longboarding Race Weekend! Last year we had a resounding 30+ female longboarders that participated. This year will be even bigger and better! Once again, we’re presenting you a Saturday waterfront cruise, after-party, Sunday slalom, time trials and mellow racing with prizes galore! The current itinerary for this event goes as follows (NOTE, IT IS STILL QUITE TENTATIVE):

    Saturday
    3:30 pm: Sunset cruise on the waterfront. Meeting spot Spadina WaveDeck (the end of Spadina Ave.).
    6:30 pm: Group dinner at TBD.
    9:30 pm: After party at Club 54.

    Sunday
    12:00 pm: Registration
    12:30 pm: Beginner/Advanced Timed Slalom
    2:00 pm: Toonie Race Time Trials
    3:00 pm: Bracketing/Break
    3:30 pm: Races begin!
    6:30 pm: Races end and prizes are given out!

    On Sunday, we are hoping for music and food. (If any of you have a sound system hookup please contact us or post in the group) We will also have a board set-up clinic area where our man servants and fellow lady shredders will show you how to put together and take apart your boards, how to change your bearings, bushings and even grip tape if you want to learn.

    Prizes this year are going to be given out via raffle tickets! You might ask how one might earn these raffle tickets? It’s simple really. All you have to do is participate in as many events as possible. For every event you participate in, you will receive a raffle ticket. If you come first, second or third in a competitive event, you will receive more raffle tickets so you have a greater chance to win. We will be capping how many prizes an individual can win so that we truly spread the stoke. :)

    Finally, please share and encourage as many ladies as you can to come to this event even if they are just the slightest bit interested in longboarding. This will really be an awesome day filled with good vibes regardless of whether you skate or not…. but we hope you do skate or even just try to learn!

    Sponsors : Loaded, Orangatang, Skate Invaders, Longboard Girls Crew, Boz Boards, Bombora Boards, Sector9, Rayne, Comet, Caliber, Original, Resource Distribution, Switchback, Ace Of Dymondz, Hogtown, Longboard Living

  • 1st Annual FUBU Weekend

     

     

    Here it is, the official FUBU (For Us By Us) weekend video! Between the Saturday Cruise and the Sunday Events, we had almost 40 girls come out to skate and spread good vibes. We had over 20 sign up for the 2 slalom events, and a whopping 16 girls sign up for the race! We want to thank all the sponsors that helped make this event even that much more amazing. Longboard Living, Skate Invaders, Loaded, Orangatang, Rayne, Sector 9, Kebbek, S & J Sales, Switchback, Abec 11, and Concrete Wave. Check them all out!

    If there’s one thing this video is missing, it’s the MEN who showed their chivalry and helped make everything run so smoothly. On behalf of the ladies, I’d like to thank the boys at Club 54 (Adam a.k.a Joker, Matt a.k.a McLovin) for letting us use their house, Ryan R for always supporting and promoting the event, Ryan V for his event expertise, Rob for setting up the slalom, Park, Nuss and Brad for filming, Bill for letting us use his truck and guarding the prizes, Nate, Justin, Ryan S, and Chris for keeping time, and everyone else who came and supported the ladies! I’m sorry if I forgot anyone but there were just so many people who helped make this a success.
