  • FERDA GIRLS: Biker Women grab back


    Well, it’s happening everywhere. Sport that until recently were mostly male-dominated are slowly becoming mix-gendered. Besides the general stoke we all share for this there is still some people who are taking just a bit more time adjusting to the logic world of equal rights, opportunities and exposure for all genders (not that we’re there, but many of us are working on it).

    Led by Micayla Gatto and featuring some of Whistler’s locals, FERDA GIRLS is a direct, hysterical response to some male riders and the industry’s behaviours and reactions towards women biking. The video is a parody of Kendrick Lamar’s HUMBLE and besides parodying and overplaying some scenes, most of us have gone through similar situations more often than not.

    We understand that achieving real gender equality for all will take some more time and work. In the meantime, be humble friends. There’s room for everyone.

    Big thanks to one of our favourite feminists, World DH Skateboarding Champion and mountain biker himself Martin Siegrist for showing us this video and always having our back. Men like you <3

  • ‘Pear Shaped’ – a Surf Short by Lauren Hill


    Real talk is what gets us excited the most. Surfer (and now legend) Lauren Hill launched the short film ‘Pear Shaped’, a very real satire of the daily life of female surfers. The pressure of what media (and some pro surfers) shows vs. reality. Perfect-shaped bodies, tans, hairless legs and bikini areas are simply not real. Lauren makes fun of everything and through humor invites everyone to reflect on how much is expected from women, athletes or not. Natural things like our periods, our body hairs (or mucus!) are demonised and build up in a manner to make us feel embarrassed if any of these show up.

    In their own words: “Surfing tends to take itself pretty seriously, and women’s surfing carries the extra burden of not only having to be serious, but also be sexy”.

    So let’s laugh it all out and work harder on normalising and celebrating everything women-related. Periods, blood, hairs and our wonderful bodies. Bravo Lauren! You can follow her on Instagram.

  • 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!
