On Saturday there’s a sunset cruise and party and on Sunday a beginner’s and advanced slalom, time trials, push race and dancing contest. Yes, all pretty epic.
Short after LGC UK’s feature in BBC News, a british grom named Emily Holt felt inspired to upload an edit of herself cruising around Barcelona with her dad. We found it so cute and rewarding that we decided to post it here for everyone to see. Stoked on you Emily and super proud of your dad for encouraging you to go out and skate. Parenting done right!
We will continue to defend the importance of exposure. Sometimes you just need to see someone doing something that you never thought you would do to feel inspired. So keep skating, sharing your videos and getting more girls and women stoked.
To all the ladygroms out there: you are awesome!
Watch Emily’s video:
Not to brag but we’re killing it. We are so proud to keep witnessing our women being featured in the news worldwide. This time BBC News featured LGC UK riders Sabina Edwards, Cristina Ballerignar, Lyndsay McLaren, Sheree Wall, Astrid Ha and Ann Marie Philip skating their local Crystal Palace spot and explaining perfectly what we do and why we do it. Also watch Sabina be the boss she is at 56.
The BBC’s Facebook account also posted a preview of the full interview:
