• Valeria Kechichian en ESPN – Metas y Mandatos


    Valeria Kechichian, Co-Fundadora y Directora de Longboard Girls Crew hablando con ESPN Woman sobre ‘Metas y Mandatos’ en nuestra sociedad.

    Desde pequeña Valeria ha sentido la diferencia entre el trato que recibía ella con el trato que recibían los hombres a su alrededor. Diferencias que marcaron su infancia y su vida.

    También habla sobre el sistema de educación tradicional en el cual no cree:

    El sistema de educación tradicional es la misma regla para todo el mundo. No funciona porque todos somos buenos en distintas cosas pero si nos juzgan por la misma norma algunos será buenos en eso y otros no, y los que no crecerán pensando que son tontos, que no valen y que no hay lugar en esta sociedad para ellos

    Valeria dió una charla TED “We Ride the Shift” hablando sobre la sociedad y la necesidad de cambio y hace unas semanas anunció el nuevo rumbo que Longboard Girls Crew va a tomar. Chequeadlo AQUÍ.

  • Longboard Girls Crew X Spike TV


    As you know we’ve teamed-up with Spike TV to shoot an ad for Fairfield Inn in San Diego. Amanda Powell and Amanda “Panda” Caloia were the chosen ones to represent Longboard Girls Crew values, message & of course, radness!

    We couldn’t be happier not only with the result but with the fact that more and more brands are choosing to portray real athletes shredding, women doing amazing, rad and exciting things. Most of the images of women in media don’t focus on our skills and the popular current female role models mostly focus on looks. So the fact that all these brands are choosing to portray women in our actual true potential is more important than what you may think. The more we portray women athletes doing extremely cool stuff, pushing their limits and challenging the stereotypes that we’re normally shown, the sooner society will be healed and we can all grow in gender-labed free cultures.

    Enjoy!

  • Interview with LGC Korea’s Trick Master Yuna Kang!


    Yuna Kang is one of those girls that inspire us. Her rad style, fearless attitude and trick dominance simple leave us in awe. Her Instagram feed is full with daily clips of new tricks (and fun new tricks attempts!) and we love seeing the evolution she had had this past year. Yuna is not only a rad freestyler, she’s also into freeride and downhill.

    She just released her latest video ‘100 Tricks Challenge by Yuna Kang’. Inspired by Jeff Ellis’s 100 Tricks Challenge she decided to make her own and voilá! Get ready to be mind-blown. Also, trick-naming on point.. so thanks for the tuition! Check it out:

    Video edit by Spin Skate

    We talked with Yuna for a bit about her longboard path, what she loves and what gives her the chills.

    LGC: When did you started skating and why?

    YK: I started skating in December 2012. There was a man in my college who learned how to ride a longboard in USA. He wrote an introduction about longboarding in the college’s web . It seemed to be very fun, so I asked him to teach me how to ride a longboard.

    LGC: What is it that you like the most about skating?

    YK: Until recently, my favorite part of skating was learning a new trick. Now I want to make a good and smooth dancing/trick line with several skills. But it is REALLY hard!!!

    LGC: What’s your biggest challenge while you skate?

    YK: I am a very coward person haha. So I’m scared to ride fast :( The speed is my biggest challenge in my whole longboard life!

    LGC: The Korean scene is really popular right now. How do you see the scene?

    YK: Longboard dancing is soooo popular in Korea now. The whole Korean scene became bigger with dancing and freestyle but also the downhill/freeriding scene is getting bigger. I’m very happy because longboarding is a famous sports now but also I’m worried about the longboard-caused accidents due to the lack of safety gear or un-knowledge of certain sport rules.
