Did you know that Studio Longboard was more or less started at a party? Or which skating discipline the owner of Studio Longboard – Sergej Schwarzkopf – likes most? How come that Linda and Paul are on the podcast and what are their skate-stories?

This episode, we reveal the story behind Studio Longboard and of the people being connected to it. Sergej tells us about his life and how skating helped him after moving from Kazakhstan to Germany when he was a teenager. And also about his journey from having a well-paid job at a big company to making his dream come true and own a skateshop and recording studio.

Paul and Linda are both skaters, but their journeys, experiences and interests in skating differ quite a bit. Even more interesting to hear about their stories. Enjoy listening to this great interview in a very familiar atmosphere and make sure you’ll get to the surprise Q&A at the end! 

Hey there, my name is Linda and my start on a board was relaxed cruising on a penny board at the seafront on the south coast of England. After 6-7 years of rolling from A to B, I found out about longboard dancing in May 2020. I watched a few videos and, at the wonderful age of 29, directly had the thought: I want to do that too!

Since autumn 2020 I’ve been a team rider for Studio Longboard and I’m not only still busy practising dancing and freestyle (it looked easier in the videos!), but I also like to try everything else: Park and freestyle skateboarding, downhill, surf skating…. 

Also I have a lot of fun hosting the Studio Longboard Podcast with my fellow team rider Paul. Actually, I got into it because my English is quite reasonable, but hey – it seems like a fit as I am still on it. 

After first trying out second-hand boards, my current dancing board is the Sydney by BTFL with 180mm Paris Trucks and 65mm wheels by Orangatang wheels.

Today we’ve received the first delivery of the 2021 edition of the brand BTFL boards. BTFL stands for beautiful which does not mean that graphics are more important than a good setup. BTFL understands how to offer good quality with beautiful designs at an affordable price. In contrast to the manufacturer, we would recommend the boards not only girls. There are certainly also guys who find flamingos or the color pink great or tend to colorful designs than skulls and skeletons 😉
This week we’ve received 5 models (see below). In the coming weeks and months more and more new and old models in a new shine will arrive. Stay tuned

The Californian brand HAMBOARDS is building Shortboard/Longboard Surfskates and LandPaddling SUP-Skates. We’re glad to have some of the models in stock right now. Choose between Pescadito 43″ as Shortboard-Surfskate, Logger 60″ or Classic 74″ as Longboard Surfskate/LandPaddling-Board. The Logger and Classic give a real feeling surfing an a (Surf)Longboard. You can even practice some stand-ups on them. The Classic is also awesome for doing some SUP LandPaddling.

This one could be also interesting for you. The Pogo TT Soulcruiser is also a long-version Longboard, which gives you not only a surf-feeling by cruising around with it. It’s also possible to dance on it or even do some freeride runs down the hills.
