In June, it is time to go back to the roots with a WLC Basic Camp. The second camp of the year will be going down in Stuttgart, Germany, where you can explore riding spots in the parks and vineyards near Stuttgart.

Teaming up with Woodwings, a Freeride Camp will happen in South France in August. With longboarding workshops for all disciplines and the chance to freeride two closed roads it’s for sure going to be a good time.

Women`s Longboard Camp 2015 – Same same, but different

Just like the previous two years, 2014 was a raging success. Stuttgart was a blast and WLC will return to southwest Germany in 2015. We’ll always stay true to our longboarding roots, however this year we’ll mix it up a little and give you the chance to also try one of two other exciting new sports – CrossFit & Parkour. Also new this year – want to skate everything and get a taste of hard wheels and a feel for skating ramps and bowls? Check out our transition skating option. As always we’re offering a well-rounded, all-inclusive package brimming with workshops, set-up tips to fine-tune your ride, a first aid seminar for skaters (NEW!) and scrummy, healthy food.

Get ready to get rad!

We’re beyond thrilled that so many women from allover the world are keen to attend WLC. In 2015 we’d like to give more of you lovely ladies the chance to come join us, so we’re introducing a workshop-only option. This allows you to take part in the morning skate workshops, the how-to / set-up workshop and the first aid seminar.

We’re freakin’ stoked, 2015 is gonna be the bomb and the crew is buzzing to bring you an extraordinary event you won’t forget.

 

Location: Stuttgart, SW Germany. We’ll be skating in town as well as around the city, exploring vineyard serpentines, parks and lots more.

Stuttgart is well connected and easily accessible via train, plane, bus & car – all participants are required to arrange for transport to and from Stuttgart.

 

Available spaces: 20 x all-inclusive package

20 x workshop-only option

 

Date: June 05 – 11, 2015

The shop is a 10 minute walk from the main train station or about 3 minutes from Stadtbibliothek underground station.

 

Yoga: Dani will guide you through an outdoors morning yoga practice weather permitting.

 

CrossFit: A current trend in fitness, not only due to its versatility – CrossFit is ideal to prepare and strengthen the body for other sports. Together with a professional CrossFit crew, we have devised 3 training units:

TE 1: An introduction to CrossFit and its training methods and concepts, followed by a short sequence of AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of the basic moves.

TE 2: A complete CrossFit workout including strength conditioning.

TE 3: A light training session including exercises on technique, weight lifting and gymnastics, as well as mobility and recovery in theory and practice.

 

 

Parkour: Describes the art of efficient movement – getting from A to B as fast, smoothly and efficiently as possible. We are proud to introduce German all-female Parkour collective Freequence as a new WLC partner in 2015 and are excited about this cooperation, based on mutual core values.

Important: Your safety is our utmost priority and we will do everything we can to minimise the risk of injury, including thorough warm-ups prior to all sessions. We will be skating different locations, therefore no ambulance will be present onsite. We won’t be out in the sticks, meaning medical assistance can be obtained quickly if needed. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure you have appropriate medical insurance for this event, especially if you are coming from abroad.

 

See you in Stuttgart!

Longboard Summercamp 2014

Women’s Longboard Camp

amazing news for all ladies who are interested in longboarding: sixxa is organizing a camp in slovenia this summer. check out the press release and website for more info!

SIXXA presents the first women’s longboard camp, to take place on a stunning Slovenian mountain road near the village of Osilnica in August 2012.

– One week of downhill, slide, slalom and freeride skateboarding
– Organised by women for women
– Networking, meeting and fun within a international environment

SIXXA, the Austrian streetwear brand for women and crew presents a week of skateboarding in a relaxed, all-female environment. The camp is organised with the intention to pass on longboarding skills to beginners and advanced female riders. Participants will be able to improve their skills, whether beginner’s basics such as foot raking or more advanced manoeuvres such as sliding, cornering, pack riding and drafting. The sessions will be tailored in regard to the participants’ level of ability.

All instructors have been active within boardsports for several years, including competitive riding and are some of the best coaches available. Legendary downhill and slalom World Cup champion Bettina Luginbühl from Switzerland is just one example of the women that have now teamed up to pass on their skills during the one-week camp.

The camp will be held in the beautiful settings of the dreamy Slovenian village of Osilnica, surrounded by great roads to skate. The road for the camp is closed to traffic during the week and the groups are kept to a maximum of seven riders per instructor allowing for an excellent training ground. A trip to the local spa and daily yoga sessions are also part of the package.

Participants must be over the age of 18 and all level of abilities and disciplines are welcome. Own equipment is not a must. The sponsors generously supply a high quality set up to take home including a Fibertec deck, mounted on Sabre trucks and rounded of with Orangatang wheels.

When: August 05-10, 2012
Where: Osilnica, Slovenia

longboard material workshop and miniramp skate session

on monday the 13th of february, a minramp skate session and longboard workshop took place at the sixxa headquarter/adhoc pad in vienna.
i was happy to be able to take part – although i’m an absolute beginner at skateboarding, i love pumping the mini. it’s always great to watch people like fee bücheler, melly jovan or kathi macheiner skate, because i can learn a lot from them.
it was great fun to skate and i feel like we’ve influenced sonja leitner enough to get back that skateboard she borrowed to someone else and start street skating a bit aswell ;)

after the miniramp session, sonja taught us about setting up and maintaining a longboard. we even competed against each other in setting up a longboard and i have to say, i’m proud that i mastered this task in only 16 minutes, but of course the others were way faster than me. i’m a noob after all :D
still, i got a set of orangatang wheels and a skate tool, so thanks a lot for that. i was stoked to say the least! i’m planning to build myself a new longboard and the wheels are a good start for that.

i hope, a lot of sessions of this kind will happen in the future. that’s the kind of ladies’ night that i enjoy the most!

here are some pics from the session.

more pics can be found here! and here’s fee’s blog entry about the session!

Ladies Longboard Workshop Vienna Recap

on tuesday, the 13th of september, a group of women gathered at 5pm at the donauinsel in vienna for the ladies longboard workshop organized by fee bücheler from huegelherzblut. fee and her partner in crime, sophie friedel, were supported by sixxa, les ettes and smile at your sister.

after saying hello to everyone, we started a short but efficient warm up routine. then, everyone geared up, refilled water bottles and got ready to go. we crossed the bridge and rolled along the danube for some time, so fee and sophie got a chance to check out our riding – how secure we were, if everyone was able to push and to footbrake and so on.

afterwards, we split into 2 groups – one group worked on the more basic assets needed for longboarding like a proper pushing technique and secure footbraking. the other group went a bit uphill to practise turning as a means of speed control and the first steps towards sliding. we got good advice from our coaches and i think everyone learned something that evening :)

time flew by and it was getting dark already, when we stopped our sessions and got together for the final words and good byes. fee had a nice surprise for all the ladies – she brought goodie bags by les ettes, which included stuff like a sweet sixxa surprise, perfume by les ettes and an autographed poster of lisa filzmoser. a big thanks to fee and sophie for taking their time to teach us and ride together, it was a blast!

thanks to les ettes, sixxa and smile at your sister for the support! check out the gallery here! pics by nicole fleck, thanks for being our workshop photographer! also, read the following recaps aswell:
