Canada Needs More Skater Girls

These photos are from lilyboardc in Montreal Canada – she’s 5 and has been skateboarding for a few months.  She learns faster than I did – which is one of the rad things about starting to skate when you’re little.  You are little and fearless which is a powerful combination in skateboarding.

Lily is inspired by her mom who says – in Canada there is not a lot of girl skateboarding 🙁

You know who can change that?  Us and we are – by sharing Lily and her mom inspire other girls to try skateboarding and that’s how you get more girls skateboarding in Canada.

Thanks Lily & mom and thanks to the other girls from Canada who have already shared & I would love to find many more – let’s do a month of Canada?  February has 29 days – can we find 29 skater girls in Canada?

The following Canadian skater girls have already been on the blog and I think we’ll find way more than 29 skater girls in Canada – Ava from Edmonton who shared on June 6th, Stella Rose from June 10th,  August 19th Longboard4usVolumatic in Alberta on August 25th, also from Montreal hannah_sk8 on September 4th,  Ali_stevens on September 24th,  Queenmeag on November 18th,  Sublimelimes November 24th and Babes Brigade from Toronto who started a Monday girls skate session on December 7th – strong girls encourage and inspire each other I’m so glad to meet more every day!

  1. Les Vagabonnes is a girls crew from Montreal but we expand to Quebec city and Ottawa and also have some friends from France, Moroco or Hawaii skating with us time by time. we have a facebook group, we have wensday session at Taz because it is free for girl to sk8 evry wensday but we also sk8 together, street skating and doing roadtrip out of Montreal. We teach each other new trix and the level is getting better and better. Olders and youngers girls sk8 together. Last weak we were 17girls skating together at Taz. December 23, we will have a biger session because a bus full of girls skateboarders from ottawa are coming. You are welcome to sk8 with the crew any time.
