A longboard magazine emphasizing on girls?
When the idea of this magazine was born, it was important for us to provide images that will properly represent women in sport; to give them a platform or showroom to present and represent themselves. Since now there have been only few outstanding women in the skate and longboard scene and many female skaters are waiting for the last little push they need to get started. Developing another typical women’s magazine is not our goal. We want a longboard focused mag that stands out from the rest, but in a way that can grab the reader’s attention. At the same time people should understand our main message: Girls skate! No matter what physical differences we have to men, women can be strong and confident in the skate scene and we want to provide a magazine with real role models and real action packed photos and sports images to help inspire whoever may read it. We want the content to push ourselves as skaters and expand our knowledge about the skating world.
We also want to provide content that is interesting to every skater, regardless of gender, skill level, background, age, etc.
We want to represent the sport properly with a female and male reach, not letting any specific sex role dictate anything but to showcase that anybody can do anything. We want to change the generic gender roles seen within today’s sports society and give encouragement and motivation that gender doesn’t have to stop anyone from doing anything.
Skating has brought so many positive developments and moments to our lives. It often brought us to our limits in order to break through them and set our goals even higher. That’s what it is about: to live our stoke and passion for this sport, to travel and to share the fun and experience with others. This is only the beginning. We have put a lot of hard work, effort and passion into the project and invested every spare moment. Without the cohesion of the scene and all the active skaters out there such a project wouldn’t have been possible. We can only achieve our goals together, to expand the network and make it stronger.
