after a sucessful and very green GREENskate last weekend we, the longboard girls crew austria are organising a free longboard workshop in vienna. on saturday the 10th of mai from 11:00 onwards we will be teaching girls and boys of all levels and ages at the volkspark laaerberg. this workshop will be documented on film for the LGC promotional video shoot. come and join the fun.
the LGC austria is inviting all riders from far and near to gather for a massive viennese style “Green Skate 2014”. the first ever green skate event was held in calgary, canada in 2007 and grew out of the idea to promote longboarding as a green mode of transprot for earth day. to honor this roots we will be meeting at the U1 station donauinsel for 14:00 sharp before pushing to the u-turn spot for a short ice cream break and some dancing. then we’ll cruise to the unity spot where we will be gathering for a slide session and for beginners, a workshop on footbrake/sliding. bring your helmet, pads and gloves, and some GREEN food and drink for a picnic on the grass next to the slide spot. in case of bad weather, we will still meet at 14:00 to enjoy the roof of the bridge for some dancing, freestyle action.
join us on FB for updates.
