The Guanabara Boards Longboard Faculty in Rio de Janeiro issued this amazing video — shot by storied skateboard filmmaker Brett Novak — of four women doing fab longboard-dancing maneouvers.
As the college describes it …
This movie options an all-female group of skate boarders and represents an essential a part of our goal as a longboard college – to make skateboarding inclusive for all.
We witness unimaginable longboard dancing manoeuvres mixed with a degree of circulation and elegance that few male or feminine skate boarders on the planet can muster.
Shot amongst the breathtaking views of Rio de Janeiro, the place our skate longboard college was born, the movie immerses into the vibrancy of Brazilian carnival.
This movie is an ode to the liveliness and creativity that makes Rio de Janeiro one of the distinctive locations on the planet, and the place we’re proud to name our house.
