We’re an international longboard community created in Madrid in 2010 with the aim of getting more girls & women into the sport.
We started shooting videos that inspired women to start skating, showing them that we could do it, how accessible it was and how much fun we had.
We promoted all the girls we knew through the Facebook fan page and asked them to send their photos and videos, even though most of them -or us- were beginners and had nothing close to a PRO level. We also did gatherings, Girls Meets and events, mostly contests and freerides to promote women in the scene. We named the active girls in different countries LGC Ambassadors so that they promote the LGC values in their countries, supporting and inspiring newcomers all around the world. We put female longboarding in the map, got some international media attention and thanks to all this work combined we started not only gaining recognition for women but what’s more important: we got thousand of women into the sport around the world. Crazy, right?
Years later Longboard Girls Crew (LGC) has grown up to be the biggest community in the Action Sports industry and one of the biggest female communities in the world, acknowledged in more than 180 countries with official crews and ambassadors in more than 70. We have a very strong presence in every social media channel and our videos & movies have more than 18 Million views around the world.
