I ran across this video today, which was the perfect reminder that it's okay to shake off a big fall by hopping back on your bike (or board, in their case). http://vimeo.com/24195442
The Longboard Girls Crew mission:
"Talented female skaters have been practicing and competing at a professional level since the 1960’s, yet the sport still continues to be plagued by the usual gender stereotypes... Longboard Girls Crew was created by a group of girls that tired of being always a minority in male dominated crews, understood that something had to be done to fill a void existing within the world of longboarding: an international female longboarding community. These girls realized that when skating together the vibe was different, they felt more confident, relaxed and couldn’t but imagine that [the same would happen] everywhere else."
Rock on, ladies.
