Roth and Ramberg and the longboard girls

Advertising Photography

While hanging out in the local skateboard shop, a young woman working there, named Anna, struck up a conversation. Turns out that she’s the first female longboarder in Calgary, having started seven years ago.

We always thought longboards were just a way for cool people to travel around the city. Boy, were we wrong. Anna and her group of women longboarders do some pretty extreme stuff. In fact, Anna herself is one of the top longboarders in the world. For now we’ve taken portraits in the studio, but it’s going to be an ongoing project travelling with these girls and seeing just what they do… stay tuned.
