One of Europe’s raddest freeriders Lauris Rodriguez AKA La Guancha went to KNK and did her thing. Not only she won the Red Bull No Paws Down race but she showed, once again, her amazing freeride skills. Take a minute to enjoy some of her best moments of KNK 2015. Guancha eres enorme!!
Next Wednesday August 12 don’t miss a day filled with activities! It will start at 3pm where they will be hosting a skate session up at Mt. Tabor until 6pm.
By 7pm they will have a loaded BBQ, drinks, snacks, and a whole lot more in store ready for the screening. OPEN riders Marisa Nunez and Cindy Zhou will be present to give a recap of the film and answer any questions anyone might have about this amazing project.
With that being said, come join us for this event-filled day of fun with the Daddies Board Shop in Portland!

GirlsGoneFast is a new media outlet for female athletes founded and operated by a group of female skaters, longboarders, and snowboarders spread across the United States. They are looking forward to providing a mix of media for your entertainment and inspiration.
Their community debuts with the #shetour2k15. Ten girls get in the van for a California skate adventure up the west coast from Southern California through San Francisco to Portland and on to Maryhill. They are supported by one brave skater-homie to do the majority of the filming and photography and post production will be done by the riders and/or sponsoring companies.
As largely unsponsored athletes, the girls are depending on the success of their GoFundMe campaign to bring this event to life. Meeting regularly in cyberspace, the sheriders have done a remarkable job putting together this event in a short amount of time.
Originally slated as a road trip to the Maryhill She-Ride, the girls are amped to receive and provide the inspiration that comes from a band of ladies getting together to do things ladies don’t normally do, like skateboard down mountain roads. The She-Ride usually runs at a deficit as the past 3 years have not yet produced enough female downhillers to turn a profit, but Deano of the Maryhill Ratz appreciates the lady stoke the non-competitive event creates among the female skaters and has gone a long way to provide this fun-filled and stress-less weekend for women.
Due to some forces of mother-nature, the Maryhill Ratz’ She-Ride weekend (August 15-16) has been opened up to boys and groms and geezers of all shapes and sizes as a fundraiser for the Wolfe Family. The Wolfe Family lives on-property and are longtime supporters of all the Maryhill events. Their home was recently destroyed by two fires. Come join us for miles and miles of sweet curves at the infamous Maryhill August 15 & 16, 2015.
The She-Riders are happy to support the family that has supported downhill skateboarding in their backyard as much as the next bloke, but we are still giving it our all to encourage female skaters to join us this year and next.
Plans are in the works for a full-blown, ladies-only Maryhill She-Ride in 2016, so stay in touch with GirlsGoneFast for a year full of adventures including a road trip to this year’s freeride, skating and snowboarding on their home turfs.
GirlsGoneFast welcomes feedback, submissions, and collaborations.
If you are interested in contributing media, supporting with advertisements or cross promotions, or have a tip, question, or comment about female skating you can reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the LBA x LGC S.S.S. Hunt! Longboard Atlanta and Longboard Girls Crew is working together to bring you a fun scavenger hunt at Piedmont Park and the Beltline area. But FIRST! We’ll do a LGC Open movie showing before the festivities at Plaza Theater on Ponce de Leon Ave Ne near Highlands Ne
This scavenger hunt is open to the public and not restricted to just Longboard Atlanta members! Invite your friends and family. Everyone can participate, no skill level required. The point of this scavenger hunt is to bring everybody together for a day of skate and some fun times. I also encourage you to bring out a female friend who skates. I know you’re out there!
With your own camera (camera phone is sufficient), you and your team will skate around certain areas of Atlanta that we will map out for you to complete a list to earn points. Upload the pics/vid on your instagram and tag #LBAhunt2015 and your team name so we can tally your points. If you don’t have an instagram account, you should! It’s 2015. If you feel like it, you can make one for the scavenger hunt.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams with the most points. Participants can sign up in either teams of 2-5. It’s 10$ to participate in the scavenger hunt. You must have a board and helmet (safety!) If you’d like to register your team before hand, please message Possala Wang.
