Since he can remember he's longboarded and snowboarded. It was only a matter of time until he found his way to Pogo in 2011.

Celine is our new apprentice at Longboard Shop, concentrating on the marketing and shipping. In the Longboardshop she's learning everything that a businesswoman for marketing & communication needs. Her main interests are trade shows, event planning, advertising and public relations. Her father Thierry was the first hired staff at Pogo and helped build the company. As the first-born "Pogo-Kid " of the second generation, she has definitely grown up with Pogo Spirit from the cradle. Her multi-lingualism is especially helpful in communications with our strongest export country, France. In addition, Celine brings much feminine charm to the company.
As a child born in Lowenstein-Hoßlinsulz, growing up with his buddies Chrissi and Alex watching and taking part in the inofficial Illegal International German Slalom Championships during the POGO Parties, Matze has long been a part of our company and the downhill longboard sport. Only a few Longboarders are as focused, disciplined, loyal and hard working as Matze. It shows you how far you can go with talent and hard training. We are proud to have him on our team and for him to build raceboard prototypes, not only because he was from the same small, peaceful village as Pogo, but because he stayed modest and sympathetic beeing an internationally successful Rider.

If you've longboarded for a while, then you know Tina. So it shouldn't be surprising after so many years on the board to have such success. Tina's Talent and desire for adventure are reflected back when she longboards down the streets. And because of that, with her down-to-Earth and open-minded ways we asked Tina to become a Pogo Team Rider in 2010. Surfing is her favorite sport beside Longboarding and Snowboarding, so you'll often find her driving to F/ES/Morocco. Tina works in the textile industry and creates beautiful hats for her own line, Zibeline beanies.

The Longboardshop History
Longboardshop.de - The oldest skate online shop in europe
Back in the day when Martin and Jogi used to only build Snowboards and Longboards, they had this great idea during summer time 2000: Creating an Online Store to sell Pogo Longboards and imported Skate goods from the USA to all europe.
Longboardshop and Pogo, that was the perfect wedding.
In 2000 when the dotcom bubble exploded and no company really believed in the internet anymore, some guys were packing and shipping skate longboard orders to europe. Almost 15 years later, over 7 employées offering great online products, deals and service to thousands of customers in europe. The guys from Longboardshop are stocked to share this fascinating sport and lifestyle with so many others. Longboardshop.de - Europe's oldest Skate Longboard Store.
