Longboarding with Kwanza Gannon and Meaghan Rillstone

Life gets in the way of skateboarding sometimes and we have all been there. Too much school to hit the hill on your longboard, your boss just doesn't understand you need to push after to work to clear your mind or you parents just don't understand how much you need to hit that mini ramp.

Recently flow team rider Kwanza Gannon sent over a video of her and Meaghan Rillstone longboarding. It isn't the most banger video out there, but what really caught our eye is what Kwanza said.

"What inspired us to make this video is at 21-years old life had us stressed out a little bit. Between work, school and just having to grow up and start accepting responsibilities, so with that we really just wanted to show how skating kinda takes us away from that and reminds us of better times."

We could not agree more!
