Rolkanje se je vrnilo, močnejše kot nekoč spet navdušuje staro in mlado, tako po svetu kot na slovenskih ulicah in cestah. Kot se je že nekajkrat v zgodovini skejtanja pripetilo je tudi tokrat ta športna rekreacija, bolje rečeno kultura, na svojem ponovnem vzponu. Ja, zgodovina se ponavlja. Dejstvo je, da je rolkarski revoluciji skoraj vedno botrovala gospodarska recesija, ki je ponavadi bila odličen poligon za razvoj kreativnosti. Kreativnost pa je esenca rolkanja, povezana z njenim pojavom, obstojem in njeno današnjo raznolikostjo. Street, vert, bowl, downhill, slalom so le nekatere discipline, ki jih skateboarding danes pozna hkrati pa predstavljajo mejnike razvoja tega športa. Tudi longboarding je del tega, čeprav večkrat s strani skejterjev zapostavljen ni več nova modna muha ampak je svojem bistvu, povratek h koreninam. Surferskim seveda. :)

Ob svetovnem dnevu rolkanja (21.6.2013) smo skupaj s prijatelji in somišljeniki pripravili rolkarski dogodek za vse. Brez sponzorskega denarja, samo z voljo in kreativnostjo. Hvala vsem, ki ste ju izkazali.

Zaradi tega mladinskega celovečerca je generacija v 80′ pričela rolkat. Najprej smo se spuščali po klancih in tapkali po ravnini kasneje so nekateri šli bolj v freestyle, drugi pa smo se vrnili na klance.

Dokumentarec o pionirjih rolkanja, o Zephyr Competition Team-u. Neprecenljiva zgodovina rolkanja ali kako je surf kultura inspirirali razvoj ostalih deskarskih športov.

Verjetno sem samo Zaplotnikovo knjigo večkrat prebral kot ta film gledal.

Že pred časom sem na spletišču zasledil tole Girls Longboard Crew, od rajderk za rajderke, zelo všečno, bravo punce! :)

”Longboard Girls Crew (LGC) was created by a group of girls who were tired of always being a minority among male dominated crews and understood that something had to be done, within the world of longboarding, to fill this void: an international female longboarding community. These girls realized that when they skated together the vibe was different, they felt more confident, relaxed and couldn’t help but think that the same thing was happening everywhere else. So, why not encourage this kind of encounter to take place more often? Where are  girls hanging out and how can we get them together? Since its foundation LGC has gradually become a supportive platform where girls who skate or who are interested in taking up longboarding can interact and find a place where they can meet each other, showcase their talent, create local crews, share tips, arrange skate-meetings etc. In other words, a place that spreads the stoke from a girls point of view. Talented female skaters have been practicing and competing at a professional level since the 1960’s, and yet the sport continues to be plagued by the usual gender stereotypes; people are surprised to see girl skaters, and even girls themselves have been put off by skating. Perhaps this happened in part because a community and support network like LGC didn’t exist up until now. Therefore one of LGC goals is to bring public awareness to the fact that we’ve been skating for some time now, we’re still going at it, and we’re going to keep going for a long time to come.

Taking all this into account, we are proud to build a site where female longboarders are the main subject. Here you can get a closer look at the scene, find updated information about events & competitions with female participation, and any other valuable longboarding material for riders in general.

It’s important for us to stress the point that guys out there are also welcomed to participate, everybody is welcomed!”

(LGC, About Us)

….nimam kaj za rečt kakor to je to.

Menda obstaja tudi slovenska podružnica, sicer bolj aktivna na socialnem omrežju kot na asfaltu, a verjamem, da se bo to v prihodnje spremenilo. Napredek gre naprej :)

Patrick Switzer in kompanija najboljših riderjev, v švicarskih alpah.

Kopiram vimeo opis video napovednika….

“Greener Pastures” film series is hosted in Switzerland which encompasses a great diversity of landscapes offering an abundance of opportunity for places to film and explore. The purpose of “Greener Pastures” is to expose some of the best skating with some of the best riders on earth in a high quality production. It is clear that longboarding has become an individual entity, distinct from other sports while still being connected to them. It is this new and vibrant identity that “Greener Pastures” looks to communicate to its viewers. But unlike other skateboard and longboard videos, “Greener Pastures” will represent all companies together, presented in an unbiased fashion. It is this type of unity that will allow for an uninhibited cooperation between riders. It is this sense of community and cooperation that is at the heart of the contemporary longboarding identity.
