• French Girls Down the Mountains – Episode 3

    We loved the first and second episodes of the French series ‘French Girls Down the Mountains’ so we were stoked to go to one of the most amazing spots in Europe to shoot the third and final episode of the series under Mstr Pan’s direction.

    Lyde Begue, Anne Poursin, Elise Mathis, Marjorie Romeo, Laure Descloitre, Suzie Peyriat & Indy Janka ripping in the most epic location. Enjoy!

  • Skater Girls Talk About Why They Love Boarding

    What it feels like for a girl and how we’re usually put down by it. And even though this is a fashion ad I think we can all relate to what this girls are saying. Take a look:

    “I think more girls probably don’t skate cause they think they’re not really allowed to, or they won’t be good at it or other people will judge them”

    “It’s nice to know that there are other females who enjoy skateboarding as well, it feels empowered to have females with you who skate”

    “When guys see me skating they are confused or really amazed”

    “It’s really empowering to get on a skateboard and cruise around”

    Happy to see some fashion brands are going a bit deeper and sending a wider message instead of using a board as an accessory. Let’s keep working!

  • Elena Corrigall & friends pushing through the Himalayas for Nepal

    With the recent earthquakes in Nepal, LGC Canadian Ambassador and current IDF World Champion Elena Corrigall joined team mates Nick Fenyo and Aaron John Ketner through their raddest adventure so far: pushing 500 kilometres through the Himalayas to support Oxfam in Nepal and its people.

    Pushing through India

    In Elena’s words “After an 80 Kilometer ‘warm up’ push to a beautiful Monastery tucked away in the Himalaya, we have regained our breath and are heading out in the morning light to tackle our 500 Kilometer push to Manali. Pushing at these altitudes really takes it to the next level and I am quite certain I can honestly state that this will be the most taxing challenge I will have ever put my body through”

    It was definitely not an easy journey but according to her it was an unforgettable one. We seriously can’t wait to hear all the stories but in the meantime, PLEASE contribute if you can with their Oxfam campaign HERE which is the reason while this adventure happened in the first place. Please share & contribute, only some hours left!

    We’re stoked on this all and couldn’t be happier with Elena showing so much love and respect for human kind. This is what Longboard Girls Crew is all about… doing selfless things for others. Big ups for you Miss Corrigall, we love you.

  • BOYS’ CLUB – a powerful statement about sexism in skateboarding

    We just discovered this movement called Boys’ Club. They just launched a video that left us speechless. This is their statement:

    SKATEBORADING is commonly portrayed as a welcoming culture.
    A movement that promote personal freedom and encourage creativity.
    At the same time, we skaters have created a Boy’s Club, where sexism and homophobia is widely tolerated, sometimes even encouraged.
    Our language, our ideals and our images all testify to that one same thing, we strive to preserve skateboarding as a masculine activity. Our rules and strategies result in an alienation of anything female or feminine. Often oppression is exercised against those who do not fit into our picture of a skateboarder.
    We have the power to break this system, but amongst us “boys” there is virtually no discussion about what values we project.
    We boys need to talk.

    This video makes a powerful statement about sexism in skateboarding coming from a male point of view and we’re stoked on it. Many of the male skateboarding elite is featured in the video, almost as an accusation on their behavior towards women.

    As we always say, sexism in skateboarding is a reflection of sexism in society. Let’s keep opening minds, educating and showing what skateboarding is really all about… that stoke that change our lives, gender-label free.

    Below, some visual examples on how women rock on skateboards & longboards, in case anyone wondered… ;)
