The United Kingdom, a small island off the north-western coast of continental Europe, may be known for its rainy tendencies but it’s a land filled with adventure opportunities regardless of the weather! Despite having to fight the wet, wind and cold, girls all over Britain are going against the odds and getting on boards. From skate to surf to snow, my new ‘coming soon’ web series called ‘Brits On Board’ aims to showcase all this. Passionate about the industry, I want to travel the land to meet girls who have let shred into their lives, to increase exposure of our world and showcase all the awesomeness it provides us. It’s an experimental project, I’ve never done anything like it before, but I’m excited to get out there. So here Cooler lets me share some behind the scenes posts as I get behind the camera and put the spotlight on Brits on Board

This past weekend, to kickstart the project I teamed up with Sadie and Rosie of Skate Girls Productions and headed to Freeze to ask girls if and why they snowboard. A great event to attend with our cameras, as each year Freeze attracts snowboard enthusiasts, pro’s and spectators to the big smog, (which happens to also be the city I call home). So the ‘Brits On Board’ story starts here in London…We spent the afternoon quizzing random female faces and some faces we recognised from the snowboard world such as Kaz Wilmer from Gone Boarding.

Not all chat, we also got the chance to film some action at the ‘Hail The Rail’ jam, with the likes of Alise Balode and Cerys Allen representing for the girls. We’ll catch up with Alise again in the dome later this month so she can tell us more on her Brit boarding.

While we were out on the Freeze field, illustrator Suzi Kemp was putting pen to paper to create an amazing logo for the project. This is what it’s all about, girls getting involved in all sorts of ways, a collab project at its best. Thanks to Suzi for sketching and Rosie & Sadie (Skate Girls Productions) for coming along to film.

A fun chatty start to the project. Next up, we nip by Hemel Freestyle night to shred with Alise and then head north of the border to catch up with some adventure-ettes and the LASS crew…
