Three days of shred, happiness and frienship: this was the Longboard Girls Crew Italy meeting on 16th-18th May.
COME ONE COME ALL! LADIES LADIES LADIES! This will be a weekend for the history books, so leave the boys at home to make their OWN SANDWICHES AND COME SKATE WITH NEW FRIENDS! Be apart of the LONGBOARD GIRLS CREW movement, meet some new skater friends, learn some new tricks, gain some confidence or maybe even bring someone along that hasn’t tried longboarding yet!
This weekend we want to welcome every single female skater for some seawall cruisin’ and BBQ action on July 12th with a possibility of gettin’ slideways depending on how people are feeling that day. BIG SHOUT OUT TO LANDYACHTZ LONGBOARDS FOR LETTING US USE THEIR BBQ!!!
On July 13th we will be hosting a ***SLIDE CLINIC*** for everyone looking to improve their current skills, learn some new tricks, or just feel like throwing yourself down a hill for fun! We will have some special guest appearances *FAN GIRL SCREAM* Brianne Davies and Dominique Vukorep!!!! TWO OF OUR FAVOURITE SKATERS willing to unlock their knowledge, and share their secrets that they’ have worked so hard to figure out on their own.
***POST-CLINIC*** So, with our newly learned tricks, next will be a SLIDE JAMMY JAM!!!!!! WOOOOHOOO!!! Maybe we’ll have a toonie entry? or maybe even a race for those who are down to get gnarly!! (by the way, we will have a first aid kit for any booboos that are inevitable to happen)
SO WHAT DO YOU SAY GIRLS!! DOES THIS SOUND LIKE FUN OR WHAT!!! If this is your cup of tea, share it with your girlfriends! We need your help!!

London 5TH – 6TH July 2014.
With “Not just a longboard Contest” we hope to create an opportunity for everyone to participate no matter the skill, level or gender. For a long time events have been mostly created for pro skaters and we want to change that. We want every single person who likes longboarding to be able to compete in events.
In addition to this, we have observed that in the UK, downhill and slalom modalities have been very well covered in different events but dancing and freestyle longboarding have been forgotten. Through this event we want to encourage skaters from different modalities and levels to watch, learn, participate and join the longboard family. We want to show that longboard dancing and freestyle is achievable for absolutely everyone.
So the basic concept of “Not Just a Longboard Contest” is to create and event where longboard dancing and freestyle are finally given a space in the UK, as well as inviting every longboard skater to join in.
We also want to give something back to the community so any money we make out of the ruffles happening during this event, will go to “Longboarding for Little Hearts” that supports skating events to raise money and awareness for the Children’s Heart Federation.
During the weekend, “Not just a Longboard Contest” will host a time for practising, contests for different levels and games for all the skaters. It is not only about the competition but about having loads of fun and meet the longboard community.
Come along for a great weekend full of surprises, skating and boundless fun with skaters from all around Europe.

It was that time of the year again, when our friends from the most stunning island nation eagerly await us to skate their best hills with them. The Visayan Longboard Trilogy was back for the 5th time, and this time, the 3rd leg would be part of the IDF.
