Cruising with longboarder, Gina Mendez

I recently spent a day shooting with Panamanian freestyle longboarder Gina Mendez.  Gina has been skating in Panama for the past 9 years. She has traveled around all over, skating in countries like Israel, Spain, US, Colombia, Mexico and of course Panama.  A few years ago she also pulled through from a near death experience when she crashed into the back of a car (youtube video here ) .

Gina is a super fun person and a really talented skater - check her out on Instagram here 

I used the following gear on the shoot :
