My name is Antima Bisth. I'm 24 years old. I am from Navi Mumbai and my hometown is Uttarakhand. I enjoy camping and Rock music.
In 2014, I was meeting a friend and through him, I discovered the Longboard Crew India. It looked very exciting, so I thought of trying it out. I kept practicing and gradually became a part of the group. Then I started to teach the sport to all my friends and kids around Navi Mumbai, where I live.
My favorite boarders are Rodney mullen(pro skateboarder from the USA) and Lotfi Lamaali (pro longboard from France)
Well, there are certain kinds of moves on a longboard that I'm good at Like Crosstep, Shuvit, and 360 spins.
I am a part of a huge longboarding community which is the first and biggest one in INDIA ( LCI) it started with 9-10 people but now we are a group of 100+ passionate longboarders spread throughout India
A beginner should first start with Cruising and Carving. Does not need to master any tricks as it's all about falling in love with your board.
Helmet and Longboard gloves are a must for longboarding, for your safety
I practice skateboarding at the skatepark and longboarding at any long stretch of a road that is in good condition and has less traffic.
The entire community has been very supportive in every aspect to female boarders. But the only challenge is that the number of females practicing this sport is very less. The ratio is almost like 2:100.
I have traveled to many places to conduct longboarding workshops and to participate in competitions. Have had an unlimited amount of fun. But my favorite memory would be traveling to Manipur with my community and exploring their culture.
I would say the biggest achievement of mine is the number of people I've introduced this sport to. Close to 1000+
I would just like to say that, if you love it just go for it. Things can be difficult in the beginning but eventually, things will become alright with the right amount of passion and Dedication. And again it's all about falling in love with your board.
Well I would like to take some time out to practice my sport consistently and to host a massive longboarding Championship in the coming Summer
