Hey there! I’m Melissa and I rep the English Capital City of London. Come jam with me sometime!
How long have I been longboard dancing?
A year and a half.
What’s my current dancing setup?
I’ve got 2 boards:
Quin Dancing Green / Caliber 50 trucks / Orangatang wheels
Loaded Bhangra / Paris trucks / Orangatang wheels
What motivated me to start longboard dancing?
I come from the Alps and love snowboarding, when I moved to London I was missing it and started flirting with the idea of skateboarding/longboarding but never really bought a board. When I turned 30 I decided to treat myself to a board and it was love at the first push!
What’s been my favorite longboard dancing experience thus far?
That moment when I managed my very first step on a board (cross step). And every time I land a new trick/step. That feeling is incredible!
What’s my favorite move to do on a longboard?
It’s a basic step but the Peter Pan never fails to entertain me. There are so many variations and it’s so fun to do.
What cool things do I like to do, other than longboard dancing?
Being very active I like running, hiking mountains, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, climbing and pilates. Also love hanging out in art galleries and museums!
How can you get in touch with me?
