Girls Longboard Crew – Egypt

Got across a great story of the Girl Longboard crew about visit to Egypt in 2012, great story…,


I’m in Dahab, Egypt. There is a wall of rain outside my window. Strange, huh! Hopefully that won’t be a sand river down the road I ride. I’m going to take this oppurtunity to share what longboarding in Egypt looks like. I can’t speak for the whole of Egypt, only Dahab – home to hundreds of windsurfers and kitesurfers.

When I was packing my stuff, my mum thought I was crazy for taking my longboard. She was screaming that I would be killed by an insane Arab on the road! Well, she was nearly right – I never skated local roads while they were busy, people wouldn’t even think to brake! But I believe that if you want to skate – you will skate. Hotel zones, pedestrian areas in the city, wherever.
