OPEN - LGC skates Israel

Support female longboarding

Longboard Girls Crew(LGC) is an international longboard community created in the summer of 2010 by a group of female riders living in Madrid. Our main goal is the promotion of longboarding amongst women and real gender equality in the sport.

Exactly two years after our previous audiovisual project Endless Roads which reached over 3.000.000 views; we’re hitting the road again and starting a new adventure that will be documented as a full-length movie. 

 

OPEN

open logo

OPEN is the name and concept of this new film. It aims to open the spectator’s eyes to a new experience through a skate journey of a unique group of very talented female riders in a faraway, exotic and un-skated land in one of the most talked-about countries in the world: ISRAEL.

Our aim is to show a different and less known face of this country. The OPEN team goes to Israel with our eyes and minds wide open, ready to receive anything this place and its people have to offer. 

the riders

OPEN will tell the story of 14 girls from different places and cultures following their interactions and emotions while skating the most diverse and amazing spots of this land. From the Golan Heights to the old city of Jerusalem, the dramatic Judean desert to the vibrant metropolis of Tel Aviv, OPEN will definitively show a never before seen part of this land.

Longboard Girls Crew

the staff

A new director will make this trip an unforgettable and edgier visual experience compared to our previous work. This will compliment the destination and momentum the female scene is going through. Daniel Etura, a Venezuelan filmmaker and skater based in Madrid, recently nominated for a Latin Grammy and Director of the Madrid Skate Film Festival will be at the helm of this production.

In ISRAEL we'll have the help of a local board company DASILVA BOARDS as well as members of the Israeli longboarding community, who will give us a first-hand tour of their country as they come along with the crew on this soul and skate journey.

longboarding for peace

Last but not least, during and after our stay in Israel we’ll work together with Longboarding for Peace, a sports association with whom we aim to spread the word of peace and stoke.

Because as you know, few things bring people together like skateboarding does. 

 

 Support the project

To finance OPEN we are very grateful to count with the invaluable support of the riders’ sponsors and other non skate-related companies to cover up the production basic costs. These include: Flights, accommodation, food, transportation, film-maker fee and activities for 21 crew members (14 riders and 7 production staff).

Part of the 18k we are willing to raise will help us cover more expenses including equipment rentals, post-production needs, music, insurance and legalities associated with making a film. 

After covering those costs our first goal is to reward all the people who are selflessly helping out on this project… a movie that will not only reinforce women's role in this sport but will also take female longboarding to the next level of exposure.  

For the last three years LGC has been working disinterestedly supporting and promoting female longboarding. In order to keep doing that while promoting this new movie we need your support.

We have unique perks for everyone supporting this project and even with the lowest perk you will appear in the movie credits and will be helping us and female athletes to make a statement.

We need the money

If you can’t help us financially you can still help us spreading this campaign. We’re working on a big project that will change minds and open new horizons for women on this sport. Be part of it! Please share this campaign with everyone… let’s do it together!
