Women’s longboarding is flourishing right now, and filmer Roxy Facer is here to prove it to you.
Two year ago the Oahu based twenty-something began filming the best female longboarders in the world, after noticing what little coverage the women received, relative to their sky high levels of talent. Soon a consistent stream of clips emerged on her instagram, capturing the abundant beauty that exists within her chosen niche.
“I mostly started because I saw a lot of opportunity in filming it,” Facer told Surfer Mag recently. “There’s a huge void in the market for shooting women’s longboarding right now so I’m glad this is what I get to do. I remember watching the “Lady Slide” segment in Thomas Campbell’s “Sprout” and becoming obsessed. Yet I have to admit, I was slightly annoyed that those few minutes were all I really had to reference in women’s longboarding. It was a huge catalyst in why I bought my first camera to shoot.”
She’s just dropped a supercut starring Honolua Bloomfield, Kelia Moniz, Natalia Smith, Rosie Jaffurs, Victoria Vergara, Justine Mauvin, and Soleil Errico, comprising some of her favourite clips from 2018, and it’s well worth four minutes of your day.
