GirlSkate – Sunday 9/25


The first GIRLSKATE   –   Hosted by East River Skate Shop in collaboration with @femmeskate and @girlsridersorg / @gronewyorkcrew was held on Sunday, Sept. 25th in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

They planned for skateboarding, eating, music, and art so of course it was a huge success.

First up some pictures from Femme Skate Skaters promoting and supporting female skaters


Nice group shot followed by the winners Bombette & Stella

I don’t know what’s in the goody bags, but I heard a special thank you goes to @femmeskate @gronewyorkcrew @rockstarbearings @bigmangaapparel and @codaskateboards for supplying product for the winner and participant goodie bags!  I absolutely love to see so many organizations encouraging girls to skateboard.


Stella shared this photo and said it was a great girls skate session & she had fun.
