WE ARE THE LONGBOARD GIRLS CREW

Empowering women, breaking stereotypes & creating community worldwide

THE STORY

We started with the desire of skating with more women and ended up changing an industry and social stereotypes.

We support, promote and empower girls and women through longboarding and action sports worldwide, changing the way we are portrayed and perceived by society and ourselves.

THERE IS NO REAL HAPPINESS WITHOUT CARING

OUR NGO LONGBOARD WOMEN UNITED HELP HUMANS IN NEED USING SKATE AND LONGBOARDING AS A TOOL FOR CHANGE

We develop our own projects and partner-up with other non-profits around the world to help people in need through sports but also providing financial, emotional and spiritual support.

WE BELIEVE IN DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY

Our Values

EMPOWERMENT

We’re stronger than what we’ve been taught
Empower girls and women to awake and achieve our true potential, as skaters and humans.

COMMUNITY

We lift each other up
We’ve built one of the strongest female communities in the world by portraying mutual love, trust, and support, which serves as an example to other women worldwide.

DIVERSITY

We provide real role models
We portray and encourage women all ages, sizes, nationality and color to push their limits and think beyond the established. We’re real, and we’re honest about it.

INSPIRATION

Inspiration through exposure
Sometimes we need to see someone doing something to realize we also can.

What People Around The World Are Saying About LGC

“Thank you so much for inspiring me and every woman involved in LGC. It’s time we finally see the strength in ourselves without being afraid of showing it to the world.
We’re going to grow so strong together, I truly believe we can fix the mess that’s currently going on about women and our role in the society. All the love x”

“Thank you so much for all that you do for the girls community. All the long days you make, money problems, dealing with the world and "perfect people" from your age. You still do what you love. You make it so much easier for every girl to grow in what they love. I hope to meet you some day and hug you. Loooove from The Netherlands <3”

“You girls are truly changing the scene for the better. Ever since you have been in concrete wave and on the web, I've seen many more girls and women come into the scene for real. Not just as an image but truly enjoying the freedom and excitement of a previously male dominated sport. Keep up the good work, and never lose the will to shred! ”

@richardshunter

“All of these photos are such an inspiration to me because there aren't many girls who skate where I live. Long boarding has made an amazing impact on my life. ever since I found out about longboard girls crew I thought it was awesome and managed to get a sticker and put it on my board. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“I’m a father to a 9-year-old daughter. I showed the Lgc videos to her to show her that women can do anything, and that they are equal to men. I do not want her to grow up in a world where she has to face the discrimination of the past. I want her to grow up confident and achieve success and not be judged because of her gender. The world must change. My wife got inspired too. There were tears in her eyes seeing you guys bombing down a hill. She was that positively affected by those scenes. I have been encouraging family members who are women to check out the Lgc videos. I want them to have the same courage you guys have. You guys are my inspiration to live. I wish all success in whatever you guys will do in the future. Me and my family thank you. Long live Longboard Girls Crew!”

“Wow, I just finished watching! With tears in my eyes! You’re my hero. I will keep pushing too. Let us be the change. BIG HUG from me to you.”

@mutterskate

“My 4-year-old daughter gets to see your movie “Endless Roads” as much as she wants because it is full of positive female role models that I would hope inspire her”

“Hace unos días usé uno de vuestros vídeos en una sesión de filosofía que hago con el grupo de más de 6 años de edad. Este grupo está formado mayoritariamente por niñas y estas están interesadas en practicar en sus skates y longboards desde hace un tiempo. Os quería dar las gracias por colgar vuestros vídeos en la red. Gracias por dar otra visión de las relaciones sociales y de amistad que establecemos las mujeres entre nosotras. Por mostrar esta parte a menudo silenciada en la que vivimos y disfrutamos cuando podemos de forma autónoma y libre, dedicando el tiempo a lo que nos gusta y creando relaciones sanas entre nosotras....no sabéis lo necesario que es hoy en día vídeos como los vuestros...lejos de los modelos que se da des de los medios de comunicación más mediáticos (series y pelis "para adolescentes"). Podría escribir mucho sobre esto, de hecho estoy empezando a redactar un artículo del cual ya os informaré pues referencio a menudo vuestra trascendencia en la cultura visual del momento. En fin, gracias por mostrar-nos activas y no, como dijo una niña de 6 años en la sesión de filosofía que hacíamos "en otro vídeo se hubiera visto a un grupo de chicas mirando como patina el chico que les gusta.”
