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.
And here’s a video on YouTube of a club skate night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSUdDTcINtA

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.

  1. Hi there. I would LOVE to learn how to skateboard! Can you tell me a bit more about your lessons? I’m 43 and never been on a board before, but would love to learn. How do I get in touch to learn more about lesson and the club?

    1. Hi there.

      I skate with the 100% skate club, and saw that no one has responded to your questions as of yet. We don’t hold lessons, more so we get together and skate and encourage each other to try new things on our boards. It’s good to maybe take a couple of lessons first, or practice riding around on bike paths so you feel more comfortable when you come to the group. We always meet at skate parks which isn’t always the easiest place to learn if you’ve never been on a board. Check out the facebook page! Erica and Marlene will be able to give you more details 🙂 I hope to see you out there with us!
