ONE MOVEMENT was founded in 2012 in Ghent, Belgium, when a group of friends became united by longboarding. They spent countless hours skating, motivating and helping one another. Longboarding has made them better friends, has created an unseen atmosphere and generated an energetic flow in their lives. They decided to pass on their passion and the open-minded lifestyle associated with it, to others.
ONE MOVEMENT is a longboarding academy that organizes and supports events and lessons for young and old, beginners and advanced, for schools and skateshops, for the loco and the sane. ONE MOVEMENT is a platform that doesn't only revolve around getting better. It's just as much meant to connect people with the same passion. It is about learning from and with each other, discovering and pushing personal boundaries, developing talents at your own pace, and getting in touch with the world around you. It's about spirit, friendship, positive energy, teamwork, balance and determination.
If you shine, we shine & if you grow, we grow.
Let's move together!
One Movement organizes events that highlight longboarding. Think workshops, demos, parties,etc.
During these events we want to create a platform that enables people of all ages to develop their skills at their own rhythm, without any pressure.
Longboarding isn't about competition. It's about self-confidence, freedom and joy!
OUR EVENT LIST
One Movement offers initiations for all ages, during which you can get to know longboarding, a new extreme sport.
Through fun exercises you will learn the basics; these include how to footbreak, push, turn and most importantly how to get to know the board you are riding. We dedicate a lot of time to these basics, because they are crucial for more advanced longboarding and offer a perfect foundation for practicing on your own.
Longboarding is an extreme sport, so safety always comes first! We are well-equipped and we pick out the location of initiations very carefully. We provide boards and protection.
If you join an initiation, come in flat, closed shoes. If you have your own longboard, don't hesitate to bring it. We can provide you with board-specific tips and tricks right away.
Under the motto Youth for Youth we work with young, vibrant, motivated and experienced instructors only.
After every initiation pictures will be posted on our Facebook page and on our website. That way you can easily share the awesomeness of your first longboarding experience with your friends and family!
