This is little V and she’s our last picture of Canadian Skater Girls in February but for sure she is not the last skater girl in Canada. Photo sublimelimes.
Thanks to all the girls who keep sharing their skateboarding pictures and show the world – girls can skateboard – keep it fun & fashionable!
Happy Leap Year.
A mother has written a heartwarming Facebook message to thank a teenage boy for helping her daughter learn how to skateboard – despite getting teased by his friends.
Jeanean Thomas, from Cambridge, Ontario, told how her six-year-old daughter Peyton had been wanting to skate for months but was terrified because she thought it was ‘ only for boys’.
Thomas, 29, said she convinced Peyton to go to a skate park after explaining there was ‘no such thing as “girl things” and “boy things”‘, but when the pair arrived the place was full of teenage boys. – Daily Mail
If you don’t remember or haven’t read it please follow the link – it’s a wonderful story that shows that skateboarding isn’t for boys or girls and that “real” skaters want to share skateboarding.
Why am I blogging about this in February – go Canada Peyton is a Canadian skater girl. Below a shot from Jeaneanthomas IG.
Thanks Jeanean for encouraging your daughter and teaching her that it’s ok to ask for help and let others help you – we all grow when we help each other!
This is ali_stevens her bio says amateur skateboarder from Toronto. I think she’s the Kevin Bacon of Girls Skateboarding in Canada. As I wrote this posts it was clear she does a lot to get girls skateboarding for fun – thanks Alishia!
If there’s one thing I learn from this blog it’s that girls skateboarding has no geographic boundaries.

Turnipheadcalcifer in Canada reminds us it’s all about the accessories. Yes the monkey backpack is fashion & function – the skateboard hat – not so much.
Not only is @amberskate a phenomenal skater but she also has a super positive attitude and is always happy to help other girls in skateboarding-Babes Brigade
After seeing this video of Amber I was totally pumped up to skate. I grabbed my board and headed to the park. Living proof that more girls skate when they see girls skate. Lol I wasn’t half as gnarly as Amber but I tried.

I love the shot and I love to see girls encouraging other girls to succeed. I actually love when all people encourage others to succeed.
If you see the orange helmet in Calgary, Canada it could be Marlene. This photo was taken by her assistant Layan and you can see other rad skate photos at imagemaven.com.
Marlene doesn’t just skateboard she helps others get skateboarding.
Our group is called the 100% Skate Club. We are based in Calgary, Canada. We have about 40 girls of all ages. I’m the oldest so far, at 53. The club just started last April by Erica Jacobs. We have a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/100percentskateclub/
Here’s a blog post I made on how to shoot skateboarding. Some shots from my club girls in the gallery.
Marlene helps boys skateboard too – here is is teaching her grandson.
More girls skateboard when they see girls skateboarding and as we’ve seen over and over again you are never the wrong age to start or go back to skateboarding. Plus it’s always stylish to share skateboarding with others.
When I saw this photo, I had to ask if I could share it on the blog. And what luck because she’s skateboarding in Canada. thisisharlow not only shared the photo she gave us another photo to see how beautiful Toronto is.
thefashionskater shares this picture from Whistler, Canada. She’s from Lima Peru and went to Canada to skateboard.
