  • OPEN German Premiere complete review + exclusive photos!

    Oh, Germany. OPEN sponsor and one of the biggest Longboard Girls Crew supporters Concrete Wave Skateshop Cologne hosted the German premiere in Cologne on January 17 and rad times were had, as every skate event I had ever attended in Germany… and considering I realized I have forgotten the movie the minute I landed in Cologne, I would say that everything worked out fine.

    Nearly 250 people gathered at the Lüdwig Museum, right next to the Dome to watch the movie. So many people drove or flew from different cities in Germany, some even drove more than 600km to attend the screening… insane!

    Many European Longboard Girls Crew Ambassadors and riders attended including Laura Godeck from LGC Poland, Lyndsay McLaren from LGC UK and Mel Goltz, Deborah Kerr, Guilia Alfeo & Theresa Charlotte from LGC Germany. Maria Arndt from Girls in Longboarding also came a long way and kindly took the event photos… Thanks buddy!

    Presenting OPEN to an amazing audience

    The feedback was mind-blowing. That moment when the movie is over and you feel the energy rising cause people really liked it and they want to show it… oh that moment. That moment pays off a lot of the hard work a project like this involves.

    After the screening and still in the Lüdwig Museum Heiko & I presented the new LGC Board that was about to be released. We did some give-aways and the first LGC Board was raffled to a lucky winner.

    Afterwards party was had, German style. Therefor I don’t remember much but I do know I tweeted cursing German beer the morning after though I don’t usually drink.

    Big thanks to everyone who showed up, to all my old friends that came and to all the new ones I made. Special thanks to Christian Kniepp for saving the day and burning the new Blu Ray with the movie after I forgot it in Madrid (haha, I know).

    Endless thanks to Anna Fusari & Heiko Schöller from Concrete Wave Skateshop Cologne. As said, not only they support me as few people do but they also support Longboard Girls Crew in more ways you can imagine. Heiko & Concrete Wave shake, support and promote not only the German scene but the longboarding scene in general and we’re lucky to have them. Thank yous are not enough.

    Thanks to Maria Arndt for taking all these beautiful pictures! Please check her Instagram account here and all her projects out, she’s a rad photographer and intense female supporter.

    The more I know the German community the more impressed I am by their dedication, commitment and support with each other. So far I have never seen something like this in any country. They support their local brands, local skateshops, have a rad stoke level and show up at any event whether it’s raining water or meatballs. They just show up cause that’s how much they want things to happen.

    Every time I leave Cologne a part of me stays over there. Danke für alles Köln!

  • NEW Longboard Girls Crew Board!

    longboard girls crew, longboarding, skate, friends, cool, rad, forest, board, lgc board, lgc, hipster, valeria kechichian, concrete wave skateshop, icone longboards

    We’re over the moon to finally introduce you the NEW LGC Board! A board designed specifically for women but that can also be used by men.

    longboard girls crew, longboarding, skate, friends, cool, rad, forest, board, lgc board, lgc, hipster, valeria kechichian, concrete wave skateshop, icone longboards

    It’s a perfect board for beginners, but also for more advanced riders.

    Specifications

    Length: 99 cm – 38.9 inches

    Width: 24 cm – 9.4 inches

    Wheelbase: 68 cm – 26.7 inches or 65 cm – 25.5 inches

    Concave: 1,3 cm – 0.3 inches

    The length & width are perfect for women or men with small sized-feet. The concave is perfect for dancing and freestyling but also for some serious freeriding. It’s a symmetrical board with just the right amount of tale & nose so as said, it’s an extremely versatile board.

    The graphic was designed by our good friend and talented artist Álvaro Yuste following some of our specifications. He did such an amazing job and the result is beautiful. Plus, he’s the same artist who did out t-shirt design! Check his rad work out here.

    The graphic has tons of elements that we love: world maps, the northern star & compasses, which reflects the worldwide movement Longboard Girls Crew is and how close we all are despite the distance, united by the same values and love for the sport.

    The quote “Not Giving In” is very powerful for many reasons. The word “Giving” is in big letters as that’s what we’re all about: Giving, supporting & promoting. But if you look closer to the full caption it’s also about Not Giving In in what we do. When we first started Longboard Girls Crew it was a male-dominated sport. It mostly still is but we keep working to position our role as Women in this and all Action Sports scenes so that quote represents a lot of who we are, our values and what we do.

    There’s a small text in the lower part of the board:

    “We longboard.

    Some of us go fast.

    Some of us go sideways.

    Some of us compete.

    Some of us use it

    as transportation

    from A to B.

    We all skate for fun.

    No matter what.

    Not giving in”

    This quote mostly written by Daisy Johannes and completed by Valeria Kechichian expresses exactly how we live our sport. Freely, having loads of fun and not judging. We hope you skate like that as well!

    Itzi Barros aproves! Noelia Otegui photo.

    Valeria Kechichian worked with Ingo from Icone Longboards -who’s one of the best shapers and board makers in the world- on the shape and he did the mold and magic. We can’t thank him enough for his commitment and selfish help towards this board and Longboard Girls Crew in general. LGC loves you & Icone Boards!

    Last and not closely least, the LGC Board wouldn’t exist without the extraordinary help from Heiko from Concrete Wave Skateshop in Cologne. This is not only the best skateshop in Europe but also the one who supports the scene and the sport the most. Heiko, we can’t thank you enough.

    You can get this board (the deck only or complete) in Concrete Wave Skateshop Cologne, you can get it online worldwide in www.concretewave.de and very soon at you local skateshop around the world!

    All photos are by the amazing Noelia Otegui. Thank you our friend for all your love, work and dedication towards Longboard Girls Crew. We couldn’t do this without you!

    Also big thanks to our models for the day! Itzi Barros, Jorge Casanova & David Barros. You can hardly tell how cold it was!

    To all of you, we hope you enjoy this board and have as much fun with it as we do. Support women supporting women in your scene! x

    ESPAÑOL

    Estamos encantadas de presentaros la nueva tabla de Longboard Girls Crew (LGC)! Una tabla diseñada específicamente para mujeres pero que también puede ser utilizada por hombres.

    Especificaciones:

    Largo: 99 cm – 38.9 pulgadas

    Ancho: 24 cm – 9.4 pulgadas

    Wheelbase: 68 cm – 26.7 pulgadas o 65 cm – 25.5 pulgadas

    Cóncavo: 1.3 cm – 0.3 pulgadas

     El largo y ancho son perfectos para mujeres u hombres con pie más pequeño. El cóncavo es ideal para dancing y freestyle pera también para freeride. Es una tabla simétrica con el tail y nose justos, creando una tabla muy versátil y polivalente.

    El gráfico fue diseñado por nuestro buen amigo y gran artista Álvaro Yuste siguiendo algunas de nuestras especificaciones. Hizo un gran trabajo y el resultado es maravilloso. Sabiais que es el mismo artista que diseño nuestras camisetas? Chequear su trabajo aquí.

    La gráfica tiene muchísimos elementos que adoramos: mapas del mundo, la estrella del norte y brújulas, los cuales reflejan el movimiento mundial que es Longboard Girls Crew y lo cerca que estamos todos, a pesar de las distancias, unidos por los mismos valores y el amor al deporte.

    La frase “Not Giving In” (Sin Rendirnos) es muy poderosa por muchos motivos. La palabra “Giving” (dar) esta en grande y es mucho de lo que somos: Dar, apoyar y promover. Pero la frase entera también quiere decir que no nos rendimos ni nos damos por vencidas. Cuando empezamos Longboard Girls Crew era un deporte mayoritariamente masculino. En gran parte lo sigue siendo pero seguimos trabajando para posicionar nuestro rol en este y otros deporte de acción así que esa frase también representa lo que somos, nuestros valores y lo que hacemos

    Hay un pequeño texto en la parte de debajo de la tabla:

    “Patinamos

    Algunas vamos rápido.

    Algunas derrapamos.

    Algunas competimos.

    Algunas lo usamos

    Como medio de transporte

    de A a B.

    Todas patinamos por diversión.

    Sin excepción.

    Sin rendirnos”

     Este texto escrito mayoritariamente por Daisy Johannes y terminado por Valeria Kechichian expresa exactamente como vivimos nuestro deporte. Con libertad, pasándolo bien y sin juzgar. Esperamos que vosotros también patinéis así!

    Valeria Kechichian trabajó con Ingo de Icone Longboards -uno de los mejores shapers y elaboradores de tablas del mundo- en la forma y el se encargó del molde y poner su magia. No podemos agradecerle con palabras su compromiso y ayuda para con esta tabla y Longboard Girls Crew en general. LGC te adora a ti y a Icone Boards!

    Por último pero no menos importante, las tablas de LGC no serían posibles sin la ayuda extraordinaria de Heiko de Concrete Wave Skateshop en Colonia, Alemania. No solo es el mejor skateshop Europeo pero también uno de los que más apoya la promoción del deporte y la escena. Heiko, no podemos agradecerte lo suficiente. 

    Podéis adquirir esta tabla (sola o completa) en Concrete Wave Skateshop en Colonia, online con envío a todo el mundo  AQUÍ  y muy pronto en tu skateshop cercano!

    Todas las fotos son de la gran Noelia Otegui. Gracias amiga por tu amor, trabajo y dedicación para con Longboard Girls Crew. No podríamos hacer esto sin vos!

    Mil gracias a los “modelos” del día: Itzi Barros, Jorge Casanova & David Barros. Casi no se nota el frío!

    Para todos vosotros, esperamos que disfrutéis la tabla tanto como nosotros. Apoya a las mujeres apoyando a otras mujeres en tu escena! x
