We are a longboard collective based in London. Together we intend to involve new members and run trips around the UK and Europe offering people a less intimidating environment in which they can develop themselves. We wish to see longboarding grow, encouraging young people to start skating and also supporting amatuer riders, we want to give people opportunity to emerge.
We need this money to buy a minibus so we can take people on trips to hills around the UK and Europe. We want to provide our learners and the other members of Bench Collective with access to these hills so they can improve in an environment skating with other people, and having spotters/marshalls so we do this safely which currently is only available at events. The van will allow us to take enough people to make this possible.
