The Girls of Guanabara: Longboarding on the Streets of Brazil

Meet ‘The Girls of Guanabara,’ Ana Maria Suzano, Teresa Madeline, Sara Watanabe, and Beatriz Gavelak as they defy the laws of gravity while dancing on their longboard skateboards in the streets of Brazil.

Celebrating 10 years of their skate longboard school, Guanabara boards created this film, ‘The Girls of Guanabara,’ with world-renowned skateboard filmmaker, Brett Novak.  

The film features an all-female group of skateboarders and represents an important part of our purpose as a longboard school – to make skateboarding inclusive for all. 

Witness incredible longboard dancing maneuvers combined with a level of flow and style that few male or female skateboarders in the world can muster. 

Shot amongst the breathtaking views of Rio de Janeiro, where the skate longboard school was born, the film immerses into the vibrancy of the Brazilian carnival. It’s an ode to the liveliness and creativity that makes Rio de Janeiro one of the most unique places on the planet, and where we are proud to call our home.
