OPEN is the name and concept of the new Longboard Girls Crew film directed by Daniel Etura featuring a diverse group of female longboarders hailing from 11 different countries that got together in one of the most talked about yet fairly unknown places on Earth: Israel.
The girls explore Israel’s dramatic landscapes, learn about the culture, meet its people and enjoy local cuisine and of course, ride its roads. This film captures a spiritual and skate journey that will bound these girls forever.
