Easy Riders is a medium length longboard movie, as the second of its kind, originating straight from the heart of the Polish longboarding scene.
It all started when Leszek Brzozowski, a polish longboarder, started working in the Szopaszopa skate shop and soon after wanted to form a group of individuals with the same passion and drive to promote downhill skateboarding in Poland.
The Szopa team now includes 10 skaters from different disciplines who see longboarding as a way of life rather than just a pass time activity.
And because of this attitude they support the core scene with dedicating their time to sharing their passion and experience with others who want to join in on the fun.
Easy Riders is a collection of hundreds of shots, dozens of tricks, slides and raw runs that Elwira Iwanowska hand picked and organised into an almost 30 minute long edit.
Behind all of the runs and higher speeds, behind tricks that were mastered in hundreds of attempts, stands something far more solid than any bone broken on this path.
It is the passion that liberates, the unlimited freedom that comes from accomplishing each and every goal regardless if it’s a faster, more technical hill or new, more demanding and painful to learn trick. Elwira Iwanowska
Easy Riders is primarily a story about passion, adventure and dedication. It is also a true inspiration for anyone who is just starting his or her longboard adventure. At the same time Elwira describes it as a reminder about what the board really is and what it’s all about.
Although it is not a high end production with 4K imagery and drone shots, Easy Riders presents the soul of longboarding and takes us back to the time when crews were more inviting to newcomers.
To complete the recording of the whole riding season, Szymon Stergiadis (Sterru) provided his original music, which creates a soundtrack that unleashes the unique style of every rider featured in the video.
