After working for many years in the action sports industry dismantling social norms and stereotypes about women who are into extreme sports, we’ve decided to raise our game and create the non-profit association LONGBOARD WOMEN UNITED.
With LONGBOARD WOMEN UNITED we now officially are a platform of social and humanitarian contribution, creating social projects, helping and partnering-up with different associations and NGOs around the world empowering humans in need, mostly but not exclusively through skate and longboarding.
Through all these years we’ve received thousand of emails of women and men around the world telling us how they started skating after seeing one of our photos or videos and how their lives have changed thanks to longboarding. About how empowered they now feel. And even though not everyone became an avid rider, this feeling stuck in them and affected their lives in the most positive way.
That is the exact feeling we want to bring to people who need it the most. Work on how we feel about ourselves and hopefully help see more of the magic inside us. We’ve been empowering people through longboarding all these years. It’s time to take it to the next level.
