Shredding Stereotypes with the Longboard Girls Crew In the male-dominated world of skateboarding, women face significant challenges in gaining exposure. But Valeria Kechichian is working to change that. In 2010, she co-founded Longboard Girls Crew, an international community that supports and promotes women in action sports. What started with a viral skating video has grown into an international organization with members in more than 80 countries. http://longboardgirlscrew.com/
In this episode, we take a look at one of the coolest and fastest-growing sports on pavement: Downhill Longboarding.
We also speak with World Champion K-Rimes!

RayneChannel — May 29, 2010 — In this episode our three a'gringos come to a fork in the road at the base of a large Peruvian mountain. One way says fifteen miles to the next destination--the other says five. Upon asking the locals which way to go, our gringos are encouraged to eat hot peppers and have a traditional meal with the locals... later resulting in gasket-blowing Diarrhea. Not listening to the directions that the locals give them, they take the shorter route, also known as the Peruvian Death Hill # 1. The going is rough, the pavement awful--their life expectancy is grim. Enjoy.
