  • A Future on Wheels – Longboarding Project in Cambodia


    We just discovered A Future on Wheels, a longboarding project in Cambodia, that teamed-up with local NGO OBT (Organization for the basic training) to bring longboarding to children from the rural area of Chiro Village with limited access to talent-developing activities and get the opportunity to discover and develop their talents through longboarding, which can also contribute to personal development. The project will operate from September 10th until November 10th 2017.

    A Future on Wheels was created by Culiba Ballesta Torres, Jildou Dammers and Jay Alexis Nieto Ramirez. Please check out this video explaining why and how it was created and what they aim for.

    At the moment they are still recruiting hardware for the project, so please click HERE and contribute with whatever you have. Old boards, wheels, trucks, safety gear… everything counts!

  • Fundraiser for Lorraine Ramirez & Nikki Piñero


    After the terrible event that took place last Sunday April 2nd, when Lorraine Ramirez (17) and Nikki Piñero (21 and 4 months pregnant) were murdered by a male rider with unaddressed mental health issues and under the effects of LSD during VLT, Philippines biggest longboard event, the longboard community went in shock.

    People from all over the world showed their condolences to Nikki and Lorraine’s family and friends, as well as to the longboard community. Riders started using the hashtag #skateforlorraine and there were demonstrations of affection during the upcoming events not only in South East Asia but everywhere. Candy Dungan & Aaron Hampshire held an event in Colorado and raised almost 1000$ for Nikki & Lorraine’s family! Check it out HERE.

    In San Juan Siquijor a prayer vigil for Lorraine and Nikki was held. LGC New Zealand Ambassador Elissa Mah attended along with other riders and members of the community.

    We were all wondering how else we could help their families and the local community, so rider Julia Barklow started a GoFundMe campaign where we can all chip in and help not only with all our love and support but as well financially to these families struck by this tragedy. We know that Lorraine’s mother had to borrow money to be able to buy a ticket to Dumaguete where Lorraine’s body was, they will need money for the funeral and expenses will keep on coming. Same goes to Nikki’s family. Please visit https://www.gofundme.com/donations-for-nikki-lorraine and help as you can.

    We’re still getting over the initial shock and hope that love and light prevails among all of us. The longboard community conform one big family and we know it will stay that way.

  • In Memoriam – Lorraine Ramirez & Nikki Piñero


    We’re still in shock about the news. On Sunday night during Philippines biggest longboard event, the VLT (Visayan Longboard Trilogy) riders Lorraine Ramirez & Nikki Piñero, aged 17 and 21, were both stabbed to death by a male rider with unaddressed mental health issues and under the effects of LSD. Nikki was also 4 months pregnant.

    LGC New Zealand Ambassador Elissa Mah was attending the race in Philippines and reports that this happened  inside the house they were all renting, at an unofficial campsite with no organisers, security, or marshals of any sort and was out of the organisers’ control. You can read her full post HERE.

    It’s hard to understand this tragedy and we can’t but feel the need to comfort each other up in these extremely hard circumstances. Please take a minute to send love and light to Lorraine and Nikki’s family and friends as well as to all the longboard community worldwide, gathered in love due to these tragic circumstances.

    The United Skate Shop put together this video of Lorraine with all her longboard accomplishments:

     

    Lorraine and Nikki, you will never be forgotten.

    A fundraise has been set up to support Nikki & Lorraine’s families. Please support if you can: https://www.gofundme.com/donations-for-nikki-lorraine

    Love everyone, hold you loved ones and everyone around you tight. Let’s be the light that shines over this tragedy.
