The ‘Longboard Girls Crew’ skate down a mountain road at high speeds in the woods near Madrid.

Personally, I am what I like to call Board Challenged. Skate boards, surf boards, wake boards and long boards buck and befuddle me, usually places me square on my ass. Needless to say, longboard zen escapes me, but there is no shortage of skilled practitioners of the board. Matador loves board sports, just check out the archive of skate vids, interviews, photo essays and stoke.

    Awesome, and with such simple cinematography (refreshing after so much camera magic in adventure-sports films lately.)

  • Kate_Sedgwick

    This video is cool, but the title is a little sexist.  Why is hot more important than bad ass or whatever else they are?  

  • Heather Carreiro

    Agree with Kate on this. Unless “hot chicks” is how they describe themselves, why use it? If they weren’t ‘hot’ but were still awesome on longboards, what would this post be called?

    I could change the title to bad ass hot chicks shredding on longboards… These chicks are hot (to me) because they are killing these hills on their boards and probably have really cute accents. They are pretty good looking too, yeah, but it is way hot that they are skate ninjas.
    I was just trying to be descriptive to the best of my testosterone clouded abilities… ;)

      I don’t know. Unless you start titling your vids about male athletes as “Hot guys kite-sailing” I think it’s a weak choice to shut out a significant portion of your audience by objectifying the subject.

    How can you be “square on your ass”? It is not possible…unless….heck, the vision is appalling!

  • Mayra Guzman

    this is so GOOD! looks so much fun and makes me want to learn how to ride a longboard! they look so free…
