Brighton’s Battle of the Boards – a short history

Longboarding Camps for Women

Are you female? Do you ride longboards? Do you want to skate with other women in a closed-road environment? Do you want to progress your skills and have an awesome time riding with amazing new people? Well, www.womenlongboardcamp.com have just the thing for you!!

Here is a message they sent us about the services that they offer.

The board sports enthusiasts at WLC have carved out a niche organising events specifically for women. Last year saw the first event of this kind, a five-day longboarding event in sunny Slovenia, dedicated to the practice of skateboarding, from downhill to sliding to dancing. The camp was a tremendous success and sparked interest all around the world– a sign that there’s plenty of women keen to get on board out there. The WLC crew aim to create a relaxed, non-competitive and non-judgemental atmosphere, giving participants the opportunity to explore their limits in a safe environment under experienced, hands-on guidance. The complete package caters for  anybody from total beginner to the more seasoned rider and includes a daily yoga practice to round off a well-designed event schedule. Due to high demand, two camps will take place in 2013, this time in the beautiful surroundings of Alsace, France. The events will take place from May 12-17 and May 19-24 respectively.
