Exciting news and Canada is on fire!
After a very successful Vancouver premiere hosted by Katie Neilson & Landyatchz we’re stoked to announce the Toronto screening hosted by Cindy Zhou, Loaded Boards, Orangatang Wheels, Skate Invaders, & Longboard Haven on December 1st at the George Ignatieff Theatre!
Tickets are for free and there will also be a raffle ($1 per ticket) for some amazing Loaded and Orangatang gear! All proceeds go back to local Toronto longboard events.
More info of the event here.
See you there!
Some of the Open riders flew from all over the world to attend the premiere: Amanda Powell came all the way from California, Katie Neilson from Canada, Ishtar Backlünd from Sweden, Jenna Russo from Australia, Cristina Mandarina and Eider Walls from Barcelona and Gador and me who live in Madrid. It was insane! Still, Marisa, Cindy, Micaela, Jacky, Gina & Cami were missed immensely!
Finally! A new Open trailer and news regarding the movie. It took a bit longer than expected but was the time we needed to make the movie as we wanted to. Portraying amazing female skating but also visual and sound quality unprecedented in the longboarding scene.
OPEN is the name and concept of our new film directed by Daniel Etura featuring a diverse group of female longboarders hailing from 11 different countries who got together in one of the most talked about places on Earth.
This skate journey screams womanhood while is also an eye-opener experience through which we challenge our skills, explore a new culture, meet its people and bring some joy to a place that hasn’t seen much of it lately.
We’re proud to work together with the Association Longboarding For Peace who gathers Muslim, Jew, Arab & Catholic kids to teach them an invaluable lesson: skateboarding doesn’t know about gender, religion or politics.
Please, enjoy the new trailer with Fuel Fandango’s awesome tune Thai
The release date is getting closer! In the meantime, new OPEN clip for Daddies Board Shop featuring speed queens Katie Neilson, Amanda Powell & Ishtar Bäcklund (Marisa Nuñez was having ice cream during this run. True story). Check it out:
