• LGC INDIA’s OPEN Premieres & Workshops!

    Longboard Girls Crew India‘s  OPEN Premiere and Workshop had a pleasant start today. Five of us girls, skaters and photographers made a road trip to United World College, an IB high school up in the hills on a biodiversity reserve. We Made it just in time (India time that is).

    Mahindra United World College, UWC MC, is a community of 240 students from around the world, working to unite people and make education a force for peace and sustainability. A movement started in the 60s as a reaction to two World Wars and a Cold War, to bring youth together, often in remote settings, to live and learn together. Students at UWCs are serious about making positive change in the world, and engage in intense study, service-learning and project-based-learning. Today they learnt to longboard.

    For the first time in the last two years of holding workshop and demos here in India, we saw a house full of only girls, waiting eagerly for us to start the premiere. The girls were from different parts of the world each with their own fascinating story, from year 1 and year 2 of the college. They showed much interest.

    We started with the Ishtar x Tussilago music video which managed to charm the students and invite them to open their minds, Followed by the LGC Open movie. The movie made all the girls eyes lid up, and after we held a moment to answer questions and story telling. The girls even learned some new words this faithful day like gnarly, stoked, bombing hills or shredding to name a few.

    Then we headed out to the basket ball court where we gave a demo and lessons to the curious and excited girls. They were quick learners. For many, it was as if they just discovered a new talent they didn’t know they had. In no time they were swooshing past each other having fun on the wheels, pushing themselves and  the boards. A few boys from nearby villages who are taught on weekends by the school kids, also joined and learned to ride.

    Some of them were seeing a skateboard for the very first time in their lives. The vibes where amazing.
    Today we used the language of skateboarding to meet new people on a common ground. All of there amazing girls are all motivated and inspired to change the word for the better. Meeting likeminded people that also burn the same fire lid their trust more in believing in them selfs and also trusting them self being on the right path in life.
    What ever the passion is, the fire and loving energy is the same, that’s why we can connect, that’s why we can speak and laugh together. This is why it feels like we’ve met Long before today.

    We are all here to change the world for the better. This is just the beginning.

    Ishtar Backlund.

  • OPEN premiere in Zurich photo review!

    Some months ago (ok, 6 months ago) we hosted with Skullcandy, 7SkyLife & Chixxs on Board the Swiss OPEN premiere in Zurich at the Skullcandy European HQ… and what a day we had!

    We started the evening inviting everyone to join us for a Girls Meet, where as usual we introduced ourselves and right after started a super fun game-chain, including longboard tandem races and switch races after getting dizzy. We had so much fun!

    After the games were done we started the aperitif with delicious Arab food and the exhibition of the amazing Artist Iuna Tinta while the ultra-famous DJ PHIL from Nnim Clothing was playing the best tunes. Iuna Tinta is an incredibly talented artist and you should definitely check her out! Jameson was also serving delicious cocktails. Not to brag but it was as good as it gets.

    The OPEN screening was scheduled for 9pm, which started with a BIG thank you to everyone involved. Skullcandy for being sponsors of the movie, offering their house and arranging big part of the night. 7SkyLife also for sponsoring the movie and being a constant inspiration in Longboard Girl Crew’s evolution. Tanja from Chixxs on Board for helping us organize everything and always being so awesome. DJ PHIL, Yuri and the Nnim Clothing crew for liven up our night (without going Phil-crazy). The amazing photographer Fabrice Borgazzi for capturing the whole event with his beautiful photos (you’ll see them in a minute!). Our friends who came from close and some from so far away: Ingo & Stephan from Icone Longboards, Heiko from Concrete Wave Skateshop Cologne (big surprise!!!), our friend the Olympian snowboarder Nadja Purtschert and so many amazing women who skate, snow, surf, ski and live life to the fullest. THANK YOU for being there! It was such a magic night.

    The screening was awesome and everyone was genuinely stoked on the movie and its message and really amazed by the Director Daniel Etura’s work. Bravo Daniel!

    Some more party was had after the screening and we call it a night with our hearts filled with stoke and gratitude. Getting together like this and sharing these moments makes everything much more special, so thank you all!

    Thanks again to photographer Fabrice Borgazzi for these beautiful photos. All photos by him. You rock Fabrice!

    Welcome to the LBA x LGC S.S.S. Hunt! Longboard Atlanta and Longboard Girls Crew is working together to bring you a fun scavenger hunt at Piedmont Park and the Beltline area. But FIRST! We’ll do a LGC Open movie showing before the festivities at Plaza Theater on Ponce de Leon Ave Ne near Highlands Ne
    This scavenger hunt is open to the public and not restricted to just Longboard Atlanta members! Invite your friends and family. Everyone can participate, no skill level required. The point of this scavenger hunt is to bring everybody together for a day of skate and some fun times. I also encourage you to bring out a female friend who skates. I know you’re out there!

    With your own camera (camera phone is sufficient), you and your team will skate around certain areas of Atlanta that we will map out for you to complete a list to earn points. Upload the pics/vid on your instagram and tag #LBAhunt2015 and your team name so we can tally your points. If you don’t have an instagram account, you should! It’s 2015. If you feel like it, you can make one for the scavenger hunt.

    Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams with the most points. Participants can sign up in either teams of 2-5. It’s 10$ to participate in the scavenger hunt. You must have a board and helmet (safety!) If you’d like to register your team before hand, please message Possala Wang.
