Sheckler Foundation 7th Annual Skate for a Cause

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend the Sheckler Foundation’s Skate for a Cause.  It was their 7th year of hosting a world class skate jam & carnival.

which I found out yesterday was the first collaboration of a company and city to build a public skatepark.  Skater owned companies sharing the love of skateboarding and giving back to the community!

The Sheckler Foundation was established in 2008 as a way for Ryan, his family, friends and business associates to give back to the community and action sports industry they love. Our mission is to support great causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children and injured action sports athletes, inspiring them to “Be the Change”!

True to the schedule there was plenty of skateboarding to watch plus there was something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

 The booths were an eclectic combination of Ryan’s sponsors and non-profits he aligns with

plus rides like the hamster ball,  jumpies and great food.

One thing I love about the Sheckler Foundation is they encourage donors to actively participate in where the funds go. When I’m aware and feel involved, I’m inspired to stay committed.

Even the raffle for donated pro skate decks was interactive.  You got to choose where your ticket went. The clear ballot boxes added to the excitement – did you go with your favorite or where your odds looked better?

Longboard Girls Crew in Venezuela

I love to see girls skateboarding and I really love to see girls getting help.  Yes you can teach yourself skateboarding – but it’s also fun to get tips.  Thanks for sharing this picture longboardgirlscrewvenezuela.

Asking for help can be scary – but it’s a good skill to have.  It can help you learn faster and sometimes even make friends.  Plus you can than pay it back by helping someone else.

Today this girl is getting help skateboarding – tomorrow she is helping someone else learn skateboarding.

Couples who Skateboard Together

Screen shot 2016-01-03 at 3.42.46 PM

Whether you’re just married like kim_klunder above or celebrating ten years like florence.lang below – couples who skate together are super stylish.

I’m not saying if you’re a skater girl you’ll only be happy with a skater boy.  First be happy with yourself then if you want, find someone to share happiness with.

I also love this shot on the Pom Pom – Ride with Your Friends page – wishing everyone a Happy Wax-iT Wednesday!

Skateboarding Spam

Screen shot 2015-11-30 at 11.07.36 AM

Rianneskate called this video Skateboarding Spam!!  I think it’s an example for her patience and persistence.  If you don’t have patience when you start skateboarding you will if you keep skateboarding.

Check out more from her and other Girl Skate UK riders in the Barcelona Ladies Street Edit.  Strong girls support each other and I love to see how UK girl skateboarding is so supportive!

I wasn’t able to make it – I’m thankful to IG for these high lights and looking forward to writing a post with Arbor GirlTara Tate the Great.

Would love to hear from other girls too – because more girls skate when they see girls skate and get encouragement.
