Women’s Longboard Camp 2016: Portugal
Women’s Longboard Camp will take place for the fifth time next year and the crew around Fee Bücheler and Christine Maier are pulling out all the stops to make it one to remember and celebrate in style. If you’ve been to any of the WLC events before, you know what that means…! After a two-year residency in Stuttgart, the gang is off to explore new shores next spring and take over a beautifully sustainable venue near Lisbon – watch out Portugal!
Since its inception in 2012, the WLC collective have organised womens-only skate events in three countries and taught women of more than fourteen different nationalities. The crew aim to create a relaxed, non-competitive and non-judgemental atmosphere, giving riders the opportunity to push their boundaries in a safe environment under competent, hands-on guidance. The instructor crew boasts a few household names including Bekks Gemperle and Bettina Luginbühl, so you can rest assured that the girls know their stuff and that you’ll be learning from some of the best.
The complete package caters for anybody from novice to advanced skater and includes a daily mobility practice as well as all-inclusive catering and trips to explore the local area. As always, the main focus of the event lies on the technical and athletic aspects of the sport and participants can expect an action-packed week of full-on skating. To make the event accessible to as many women as possible, riders can choose from a five and a seven-day package.
No previous boarding experience necessary, total beginners are most welcome – test boards provided by Sector 9. The event will take place in Sintra, Portugal, a stone’s throw from the Atlantic coast from March 05 to 12, save the date!
