It’s true – skateboarding has prepared me for a lot.  Learning that falling isn’t failure is such a life lesson as are knowing how to fall and when to ask for help.  Not to mention how important it is to learn how to listen and be open when someone’s trying to help you.

From Diana:  I love skateboarding because it’s sooo scary and when I skate I have look fear in the face..conquering fear and ripping around the skate park is the most amazing feeling ever.   The rush of being scared to death, sucking it up and doing it anyway is the biggest reward in life. Sometimes when I take a slam skateboarding after that I can do anything!

Skateboarding also keeps me riding sideways and in shape for snowboarding.

I have found that when you get a group of girls together who want to learn how to skate anything is possible. These little girls find confidence they never thought they had and on top of that get to learn about their bodies, sweat, take falls, get up and have fun too!
