WE LOVE IT!!

THIS IS A T3ST

Tag along on a road trip in Spain with the Longboard Girls Crew·

In this third episode, we return from Mallorca and visit Carlota’s parents in their family house in Denia. They invite us to paella right in front of the beach. We spend the night in Calpe and continue our journey to the country’s interior. Castillian landscapes, lands of castles and medieval towns are waiting for us.

[7 female riders, 1 van, 15 days, 4.300km, 416 GB of raw material… culminating in one video, divided into four chapters. The film documents the adventure of the trip, portraying the girls, their lifestyle and their passion for longboard.]

Videos like this get me stoked to go out and skate the world.  This a four part series, I included this one because of that gnarly nose manual at 3:16. Here’s Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4!
