When I googled skateparks in Canada – I was happy to find how many there were.   Canada has some rad facilities – including indoor ones.  Happy to know you can keep it stylish on & off the board year round in Canada!

My First Skate Video

Brielsk8grl shared her first skate video with us – she started skating on and off just two months ago and fell in love with it.

I’m happy to say she’s been skating for another month now.  I am so happy about all the girls, who are taking the time to share their photos, videos, and stories.

More girls do skateboard as they see girls skateboarding and we encourage each other.  Briel is 4 and she definitely inspires me to keep encouraging girls to skateboard for fun & keep it stylish.

Shout out to all the parents like Briel’s who encourage their children to stay active, smile, and work with others – it’s always super stylish to spread positive vibes on & off the board!

You Got to Start Somewhere

mikebjork captioned this video – You got to start somewhere!  I’m really glad for the reminder because when you’re watching super shredders it’s easy to get discouraged and feel defeated because of what you can’t yet do.

Focus on what you can do.  If all you can do is get out the skateboard and stand on it – celebrate that.  Everything has a first step – really there’s no running without the first step.

Surround yourself with encouraging people – both those physically around you & who you hang out with on social media.  Mike and his daughter are in Halmstad Sweden – which is far far away from San Diego CA USA – yet they are sharing encouragement so other girls can see skateboarding is fun.

Every day is not going to be “the best day ever” but every day can be the day you look at things positively – looking for opportunities both on & off the board is stylish!

Thank you Charlotte for sharing & thank you skateboarding for motivating me to start this blog – I learn something every day.

And if you’re a skater girl out there and want to help encourage other girls please let me know.  More girls do skate as they see girls skate and we encourage each other!
