Skateboarder And... Helena Long

This episode of the ’Skateboarder And…’ podcast is with one of our favourite UK rippers and one of the humblest people we’ve ever had the pleasure to sit down with. Her accolades are many, but as you’ll hear, she’s very British about it all.

This episode is with skateboarder, Poetic Collective Pro, VANS team rider, musician, lapsed illustrator and now co curator at Somerset House…Helena ‘Legs’ Long.

We talk about; Pound Stretcher Boards, WHSMITHS pilgrimages, getting on VANS at 15, Pioneer Skate Park, the Girls Skate Jam, riding for Santa Cruz, Fabiana Delfino, Rogue Skateboards, traveling, skate videos, Lucy Adams, going Pro for Poetic Collective, working for Somerset House, not watching Street League, playing the drums, the upcoming ’No Comply’ exhibition, and so much more!
