Jaymee Mangasang has just started longboarding in 2015. While her first love is surfing, a longboard has been more than just a fallback. She has first been introduced to the water sport back in the Philippines in 2009. However being a nurse where duty calls in, she had to spend most of her time away from home and the waves.
Thanks to her good friend, Joseph Falcone a.k.a. Epos, who not only encouraged her to pursue longboarding but also took care of setting up her first board which was made in the Philippines by Driftwood Local Enterprise (DWLE).
“I will always have a spot for surfing in my heart; but longboarding has given me concrete waves.” – Jaymee
