Ms. Monthly – What You Miss’d In June
Welcome back to another Ms. Monthly! Longboarding season is in full swing as June marks the first official day of summer in the Northern hemisphere, celebrates national Go Skateboarding Day, and kicks off the IDF World Cup races. As a result, ladies from around the world have been out riding, progressing and releasing killer media. To keep you stoked and up-to-date, here’s what you miss’d in June!
MISS’D PHOTO OF THE MONTH

Swiss shredder Tamara Prader joined forces with Spanish filmmaker Alberto ‘Perropro’ Alepuz earlier this year to create this downhill masterpiece for Loaded Boards & Orangatang Wheels. Complete with radioactive factories, escaped squirrels and fast Malibu runs, what’s not to love?
Next, Omen Longboards recently debuted Colorado’s Loryn Roberson as the newest member of their team with this video. Watch as she handles her hometown switchbacks with ease and grace!
LGC France, in association with PAN!, has been putting out a series of episodes over the past couple of months. These videos feature some of France’s best riders on some of the gnarliest roads.
Carmen Sutra Shafer has held it down for the freeriding scene for years. Here she is with a quick banger edit!
If you didn’t know, the longboard dance scene in South Korea has been simply booming the past couple of years. This clip in particular went viral on Facebook accumulating over a million views! While the title of the video might be questionable, the rider’s flow is undeniable.
This next video is one of my all-time favourites. You may have missed this one since it was from June… 2008. Regardless, I think it’s important to know your longboard history! Ysabel Mireles was Loaded’s first ever female ambassador. She was doing g-turns, switch backsides and cross-steps before the majority of us even stepped on a longboard! Get stoked on this piece of June history!
