Given that our mate Helena Long was the first woman to appear in a First Light feature back in the days of us doing a paper magazine, it seems rather fitting to have her also be the first woman to appear in one of these Product Toss features. Helena Long really oughtn’t need much introduction – if you’re still not aware of her, her skateboarding, or the footprint she’s left on the UK skateboard scene then you need to catch up on your homework.
In an act of supreme charity – I’ll make that homework a little easier for you.
Why not watch the recent mini documentary that we made on Helena’s twin passions, (that’s skateboarding and drumming) that you can see below for a heads up on Greenwich’s most gnarly.
If you still need more back story (and to be honest you’ll probably benefit from the insight) – jump on the Helena Long tag here, for a bunch more footage, info and general positive vibrations.
Now that you’ve brought yourselves up to speed as regards one of the UK’s pioneering street skaters, let’s have a little gander at Helena’s current set up as is customary in Product Toss.
