Longboard Girls Crew Greece annual event just took place and the team is stoked!
LGC Greece is a small team of girls and women who have fun riding, aiming to inspire other Greek girls to join. They organise these events to catch the attention of local women and show them how easy it is to try and join the crew. Check out the words by our LGC Greek Ambassador & organiser Maria Eleftheriadou!
The Street Mode Festival Thessaloniki is one of the biggest of its kind in Greece and we managed to have a longboard space to do demos and invite people to try longboard and skateboarding. Over 10.000 people per day attended the festival and that gave us the chance to meet and introduce longboarding to a lot of girls (and boys), showing them how fun and easy it is.. even as transportation through the city!
Lots of friends came from all over Greece and even a longboard team from Athens who gave free dance lessons to the girls.
We spend three unforgettable days riding, sharing tips and lessons, giving stickers and hopefully inspiring other girls!
Our goal is to become someday a big and strong team of girls and boys. Our aim is to claim a longboard area in our city and to re–pave the road on our coast so we can use it with our longboards, skates, in lines and bicycles.
Thank you all for being there! Until next time!

Younger generations coming strong! We are happy to introduce LGC Russia‘s Lina Ruess, a 18 year-old rider from Moscow who’s absolutely killing it with style. She’s a RANEPA student and into action sports in general (mad skimboard skills!). We can’t wait to see more of her and all the Russian community that’s growing strong. Video by Stanislav Dunda.
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.
