Longboarding is not related to cycling in the Twin Cities, but I became enamored with the spirit of the women starting groups all around the globe to show their passion for a sport that they love and really wanted to share that with you. It makes me hopeful that maybe someone in Spain or Slovakia might catch wind of the Grease Rag, think it's right-on, and start their own WTF group in their neck of the woods... But enough about my fantasies, roll that beautiful longboard footage:
Endless Roads 1 - Yellow Horizons
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.
In this first chapter, Jacky, Valeria, Carlota & Gador welcome Maitane, who's coming from the Basque Country; Marisa coming from Miami and Amanda from Massachusetts. Together, they start their journey traveling 600 km in the van in order to get to Cabo de Gata Natural Area, in Almería. They spend three days over there, enjoying unique volcanic-origin landscapes, the deep blue sea breaking against the winding coastline, August relentless sun and secondary roads that leads to small towns and coves in the Mediterranean coast.
The power of their friendship energizes me. Preciosa. Another thing making me happy is how many Ambassadors they have up on their site. Yeah!
