Our Đineke Cornelissen started a new series – with interviews with some rad and pretty fast downhill girls! Come and read her first article and interview she did with Jenny Schauerte!
We are super happy to have Katarzyna Hajdan from Warsaw on our TricktTip-board! She shows you the One Foot Manual BS No Comply Nollie Shuvit Out – What a long name! But probably the name is more difficult than the trick – Have fun!
So this is what S*pin is mainly about – helping, supporting, inspiring eachother!
Support Candy Dungan, to go for the 2017 Women’s World Championship in Downhillskateboarding.
She still needs some help to accomplish it. It is a all-or-nothing-campaign and every support helps, so go and see how you can support her.
Do you already know our playlist on Spotify? Feel free to put your favorite skate songs to share!

Lorenza D. Walker put something into words, that most people don’t like to talk openly about – about having breakdowns, meltdowns, anxiety attacks – having hard times. She tells us about hers and how to celebrate being a sensitive person and how it makes us stronger! Sensitive words by a strong women – Proud! Thanks for sharing it with us – We need more of these open statements!

After the most recent Women’s Longboard Camp Freeride held in France, in August, all of the girls that attended were still pretty much high on stoke. They didn’t like the idea that the season was almost over. So they decided to meet in London for the Hogtoberfest again and gathered from so different places in Europe!

Part II of Maria’s progress in downhill skateboarding: She attended her first freeride event at Wallonhill and wrote about her experience, stoke, how she pushed her personal limits and how she found out how important it is to be proud of yourself and your own progress. So read the second part of her shared experiences in freeriding.

The third Women’s Longboard Camp this year happened in August in France, all focused on freerding. There were women from all over Europe, some came from Vienna, London, Hamburg or the Netherlands to France. All participants arrived at this women’s longboard camp with the same simple goals: to skate among girls, to improve their skills and to have a lot of fun. To conclude, all targets were achieved.
