Finally! A new Open trailer and news regarding the movie. It took a bit longer than expected but was the time we needed to make the movie as we wanted to. Portraying amazing female skating but also visual and sound quality unprecedented in the longboarding scene.
OPEN is the name and concept of our new film directed by Daniel Etura featuring a diverse group of female longboarders hailing from 11 different countries who got together in one of the most talked about places on Earth.
This skate journey screams womanhood while is also an eye-opener experience through which we challenge our skills, explore a new culture, meet its people and bring some joy to a place that hasn’t seen much of it lately.
We’re proud to work together with the Association Longboarding For Peace who gathers Muslim, Jew, Arab & Catholic kids to teach them an invaluable lesson: skateboarding doesn’t know about gender, religion or politics.
Please, enjoy the new trailer with Fuel Fandango’s awesome tune Thai

Our little beast keeps getting radder. Micaela Wilson’s wipeout during Central Mass 5. She’s fine.
Almabtrieb was the first of the IDF European races held during 16-19 July in Germany. As usual riders from all over the world came to race and I was excited as hell to meet so many of my friends from around the globe.
Almost 20 girls were registered to race or freeride and they came from all over Europe and beyond. Maga Mc Whinnie came from Australia, Elena Corrigall from Canada and Emma Daigle -originally from Canada but lately living in Hawaii- came but couldn’t race due to a massive road rash, so both of us lurked (very) hard the entire four days.
The base camp was hot and sunny but a little creek with frozen water some meters away was our life savior. It served us as a shower, beer cooler and general meeting point.
And this is what Germans do for entertaining before/after the races. Race-crawl in a rocky creek till (almost) death. Nico Nuehrig took home the gold, the wounds & of course the glory.
I was crazy stoked to see my friends skate. All the ladies killed it the whole event and the podium looked like this:
1. Elena Corrigall
2. Tamara Prader
3. Spoky Woky
4. Tina Zibeline
5. Glori Kuspch
The last night party was had and despite that awful electronic? music they were DJing we had a great time. Next time we demand DJ Buff Bill. Danke für alles Germany!
The week after in Kozakov the podium was exactly the same:
1. Elena Corrigall
2. Tamara Prader
3. Spoky Woky
Check out these killer shots of the ladies:
Peryagudes starts tomorrow so stay tuned!
