Long For Board

LONG FOR BOARD – Longboard clothing brand for girls who skate

WHO RIDE THE WORLD? GIRLS!

Ever heard of LONG FOR BOARD? Well you better catch up, if skateboard or longboard is your thing. In a world dominated by guys, skating girls should feel unique and express themselves to the fullest potential. Why not do it with clothes? LONG FOR BOARD is a newly launched clothing brand created by a woman for women who love skateboarding and longboarding.

The brand was developed in response to the challenges faced by girls and women while looking for comfortable and good quality pants. The simple idea is to provide girls with a possibility of choices, of freedom of movement, comfort and joy while skateboarding. Its objective is also to help them let go of all the limitations. We know that everything is in your head and it’s your own personal victory when you face your fears when skating. Why not do it feeling comfortable and appreciated?

The pants are made from natural, elastic and breathable materials, including cotton and elastane. The cut of the pants allows a great range of movement and each pair has a secret pocket, where you can hide your little treasures or a smartphone. They are available in colors that perfectly match other clothing sets and they will for sure meet the expectations of even the biggest fans of minimalism. On the other hand, the hidden color details will make a nice surprise when no one expects it.

All the models in the LONG FOR BOARD shop were created to give respect to great women figures in our history: OPRAH, ELEANOR, DIANA, ANAIS. You can appreciate them and you can learn from their histories and words of wisdom they had left behind. Women are smart and brave and we want to shout about it!

Every new pair of pants is tested by the brand ambassadors of LONG FOR BOARD – Katarzyna Hajdan (longboard), Agata Halikowska (skateboard) and Ophelie Lahouille (longboard). The clothes are manufactured in Poland, where the brand originates from. You can check out the offer on the website www.longforboard.com or drop by for a fitting in their showroom in Warsaw if you happen to visit – Longboardshop Polna 30a street.

We’ve seen our fair share of D.I.Y. and reinforced skate pants, but The Bufers combine a little bit of both. By pairing material reinforcements and internal protection on high impact areas, these longboarding pants offer solid protection against road rash.

The Bufers Jeans longboard pants

Regardless if you’re already past the beginning phase or you’re just starting out, those nasty road rashes are always out to get you.

The Bufers denim longboarding pants are created for everyone who would like to save their skin and avoid the burning shower feelings after a skate session. They are also compact enough to pack them in your bag for a skate trip.

While most longboard pants are only reinforced with Kevlar or Cordura fabric and do not provide any extra protection, the Bufers are a step in the right direction. Similar to crash pants they feature protective inserts placed inside the denim pants and strategically mapped on key areas you’re most likely to tear and destroy during a fall or learning how to slide.

The Bufers Jeans protect the common high abrasion areas on the hips, the seat, knees, as well as the front and side of the shins. By pairing together material reinforcement and protective elements, the Bufer Jeans look tough and durable.

The internal protection is also available separately for you to start your own D.I.Y. project. It can be easily installed in any type of pants you desire, all you need is an iron and a hot air gun. Once placed, the buffers firmly stay in place and provide a comfortable protection.

What provides the impact and material protection are the solo buffers made from a 2 mm thick high-quality polyurethane combined with a 2 mm soft and lively plastic.

With a fusible interlining that consist of a base material and thermoplastic resin, they also allow you to easily place them on any pair of skate pants with the help of an iron.

Bufers Jeans are available in four denim colorways with stretch inserts tailored to your size, priced at 195 EUR. Another option is store bought jeans with 7 installed buffers, priced at 99 EUR (including jeans), while the Solo Buffers are available in packs of 7, 9 or 13 starting at 49 EUR.

The Bufers Shorts and Overalls

Bufers Protective Clothing also provides two other designs of protective longboarding pants in the form of shorts and overalls.

The Bufers Shorts are created for pushing and cruising around the city, hence their light at breathable design. These shorts include inner or outer protective pads on the hips, seat, and knees. Paired with shoulder straps and a mesh back inlay, these pants can also hold a spine protector.

If you’re a fan of the overalls, the Bufer Overalls will help you skate safely when freeriding and downhill skateboarding. They, as well as the other two models, can have a custom design of the fit and placement of the protective buffers. The Overalls include internal or external buffers on the knees, hips, shins, and seat.
