Women’s Longboard Camp – Bonfire 2017 news

We always knew that 2016 was going to be a hard one to top – three events, three concepts, three locations. It all culminated in the epic adventure that was our freeride camp last August in the most magnificent of settings, a collaboration with the brilliant Woodwings crew.

A lot of blood, sweat and also some tears went into last year’s Womens’ Longboard Camp series and for some time it looked as though that may have been it, at least for the time being. To be honest, it would have been a great high on which to end the last five years.
Life is changing, as is the crew, priorities are shifting and gravitating towards other commitments and new ventures, as the saying goes one door closes, another one opens and life begins outside of your comfort zone.

General event information

This year’s edition of the Women’s Longboard Camp will take place from the 2nd – 6th of June 2017. The place to be this year is between the hills and valleys of Löwenstein, a small town situated between Heilbronn and Stuttgart in the south-west of Germany.

Bonfire will be limited to 30 participants to ensure everyone attending gets enough attention from our crew and can enjoy a relaxed and friendly environment. The registration is already open, so check out our shiny new website to get the deets and to sign up.

What’s new for the 2017 Women’s Longboard Camp?

We thought about how we could make it better and our good friend and longtime WLC supporter Alex Dietrich, the man behind Root Longboards himself, will be at the helm of this event; we are both stoked and super grateful for all his hard work.
We’ll be returning to good ol’ Germany once more, to the greater Stuttgart area to be precise, which has been host to several WLC events over the past years.

For the 2017 edition, we’ve chosen a proper special spot – you may have heard of Großerlach before, home of the annual Pimp Mai Ride. No need for shuttles, riders get back up the hill in a skilift, how rad is that?! Skate all day, err day, just how it should be.
We cannot wait to get this party started, it’s going down this June and once again we’ll bring you everything you love, including a residential miniramp, hells to the yeah!
See ya on the hill!
