  • “OPEN – lgc skates Israel” Short video

    ENGLISH (Español abajo)

    It’s time! The OPEN short video with extracts from the full movie released online!

    As many of you know, OPEN (the full movie) won’t be available online for some time as it’s being part of different Film Festivals and distributed globally. Our Indiegogo supporters were able to enjoy the full movie last week as part of their reward for supporting our crowd-funding campaign and some TV channels around the world will start to showcase it very soon.

    This short video is made out of extracts from the full movie, they are not related or linked and it’s not a movie summary, they are just different parts of the film put together in a video so that you have a glimpse of the final edit. We really hope you enjoy it but mostly, we hope you can catch a screening of the full movie near you! Stay tuned as we’re constantly announcing the premieres around the world. Last week was Germany’s turn and in some weeks California, Panama & Japan are happening.

    ENJOY!

  • Skateistan: The Impact on Afghan Girls

    Not only we’ve featured Skateistan plenty of times and support them as much as we can but we’ve also hosted the Spanish screenings of their movie Skateistan, Four wheels and a board in Kabul in Madrid & Barcelona. Skateistan is such an amazing project and it has been changing the lives of Afghan people since 2009.

    Ride Channel just released a new video portraying the impact of Skateistan on Afghan girls. This is beautiful:

    Thanks to Skateistan, skateboarding is now the largest sport for females in the country. Seriously, how amazing is that? Talking about impossibles… Go and make it count!

    Check all the 87 positions here

    Congratulations to all these outstanding women for the achievements during this season and to all the ladies doing the same thing without racing, because they choose not to or because they can’t afford paying the trips and entries.

    Shout out to all the companies that supported their female athletes this year.

    More women racing means more exposure and more exposure means bigger chances to attract future female riders

    So here’s to all those ladies and companies that keep pushing the boundaries, rising the standard and paving the way for future generations. Let’s keep working together! x
