LGC Poland presents Seninka Practice Camp vol. 3

LGC Poland’s invites you to Seninka Practice Camp Vol. 3

The girls over at Longboard Girls Crew Poland are putting together their 3rd edition of Seninka Practice Camp – a female-driven longboard event this weekend.

This community-driven get together will last for three days total, from the 19th to the 21st of July, 2019. In the spirit of opening the scene for new riders, LGC Poland also invites riders of the opposite gender to practice their longboarding skills on a chill hill located on the Polish-Czech border in Nová Seninka.

As a common saying ”Practice makes perfect”, their program is split into three days. Friday the 19th is planned for freeriding, on Saturday the crew will offer longboarding workshops and a party, while the last day will be reserved for more skill-building and freeriding.

The crew has an open invitation to anyone who wants to join and the skill requirement for the Seninka Practice Camp is pretty basic. All you need to know is how to push, brake and carve – the girls will teach you the rest.

STANT - New longboard clothing brand

STANT – A new longboard clothing brand from Poland

Like almost every other brand, STANT is a skater owned project. It came alive from the need for change and improvement but most of all just doing something the way they want it to be done.

One day they just rolled with it, figured out a name, chose a RAT for their logo and started working. All of which resulted in their first collection named STREET&TRIP.

DESIGN

Their goal is to stay basic, comfortable and at a certain distance to the popular streetwear fashion, which brought the collection together.

Since they really wanted to do things their way, all of their products are designed and made from scratch with the help of clothing technicians and material specialists. Sewing and applying graphics is also made in Poland – no shortcuts.

PRODUCTS

STANT’s first lineup includes two T-shirts models, two sweatshirts models, and socks. Their classic T-shirts are made from 100% premium cotton in a standard cut with a well-fitted neck welt. These are designed in light colors for a clean and fresh look.

Their second model of what they call Impact T-shirts is made from a thicker cotton reinforced with elastane, that flows with the movement of the rider and offers a higher durability for skating. It features a looser fit neckline and shorter sleeves. The Impact T-Shirts are available in darker colors for a loose and relaxed feel.

Their crewnecks and hoodies provide a minimalistic and clean look, made from a lighter material. The double stitching on critical areas provides that extra durability, while a special kind of weave makes them a great choice for chilled summer evenings.

STANT – Skate socks

Their sock models provide a mixture of white elegance and sports style, that dries faster, provides better traction and all around wearing comfort.

All in all, they choose a simple lineup of products they would want to personally wear, products that make the person wearing them feel good. One way or another, they’ve mixed those worlds together to achieve something different.

COMMUNICATION

Apart from the materials, cuts, and designs, STANT wants to communicate through skate life situations which most of us encounter on daily basis. Their graphics are crystal clear to some and completely ridiculous to others. The whole point of the brand is to be able to identify with your individual passion in a less obvious and more fun way.

Like every upcoming brand, STANT has plans and ambitions, but their goal is to keep it mellow and relaxed. If you like the concept visit their website for more information or follow them on Instagram and Facebook.

Easy Riders - a Polish longboard movie by Elwira Iwanowska feat. the Szopa Team

Easy Riders – a Polish longboarding movie

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.

Lobo Kraken downhill longboard wheels

Lobo presents Kraken downhill wheels feat. Giuseppe Maltese

Lobo Wheels from Poland is one of the rare brands who offer longboard wheels developed and manufactured in Europe. In addition to their firstborn, the Meduza freeride wheels, they recently added another product to their collection, the Lobo Kraken downhill wheels.

Lobo Kraken Downhill Wheels

Lobo Kraken longboard wheels for downhill.

Lobo Kraken are downhill longboard wheels with a diameter of 75 mm and maximum width and contact patch of 65 mm. The wheels feature a wide centerset core with micro fibres for better vibration absorption which will fit a 10 mm spacer.

The Kraken wheels are currently available only in 74a durometer and red colour.

Our DFAF formula is designed for speed and grip but combined with our centerset wide core, that will give you predictable and smooth pre-drifts. It wears very slowly so you’ll need less sets for racing. ~ Lobo Wheels

Lobo works tightly with their whole team on wheel development, but the Kraken wheels were masterminded mostly with Giuseppe Maltese from Italy who joined the team in fall 2015.

These wheels are awesome! The roll speed is good, with the help of the big core they start going fast very quickly. The slide is the best part of them. It is very predictable so when you want to grip the corners, you can do it very safely because of the extreme grip they have and when you want to slide, they start to drift in a very comfortable way, very smooth. And last but not least, they have an incredible durability. ~ Giuseppe Maltese

Where to buy Lobo Kraken wheels

All Lobo wheels are available for purchase via Lobo’s website. The Kraken downhill wheels are fairly priced at around 64 Euros, considering how much meat they have and the durability we’re promised.

To stay on track with Lobo Wheels, follow them via Facebook or Instagram.


Lobo Meduza Freeride Wheels
Now available in new durometer options

Last year, in 2015 Lobo presented their first wheel  Meduza freeride wheels,  which were available in only one durometer. They promised to deliver more options in 2016 and so they did. Lobo Meduza wheels are now available in 77a and 81a durometer, both being 71mm in diameter and 50mm wide with 36mm contact patch.
