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.

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.
