On Saturday, November 12th the Ladies came to the Berrics thanks to the open invite from Poseiden Foundation.
In addition to skateboarding with friends, there was a chance to win best trick, mingle with potential sponsors and help those in need. Everyone who came to skate was asked to bring a donation of canned food, skate equipment new or used, or cash to help feed the LA homeless and build homes with Techo of Latin America.
New this year was an early session for skaters 14-under, which included a skate clinic. Also new this year was the “Refer-A-Friend” contest.
For more information on the history of Poseiden Foundation Ladies Day at the Berrics see my October 7th post. Now let’s see some highlights from the day. Most of the pictures will take you to the IG of the contributor and many of them are videos so be sure to click!
The day was possible because of all the volunteers. Above colorfulirises & _sk8.and.cry_ started their morning off by checking girls in.
vianezsk8 was one of the girls who participated in the 10am – 11:30 Open Session for Ladies under 14.
dailynnskates_ was one of the ladies who won a fabulous prize. She won a triple8nyc helmet. Huge thank you to all the sponsors and supporters who donated product for the day and for the mission.
Poseiden Ladies Day at the Berrics is more than just one day. The food and skate equipment they collected also goes to help those in need.
As for what the ladies are saying
_kiki_kiara was excited to heelflip the five stairs – if you have a video of her doing it, she’d love if you shared it – above she’s with some friends and if you check out her IG you’ll see a better shot of her beautiful hair.

It’s always more fun when things are all ages & inclusive. I’m not about the “carding” life.

Militant_23 aka Amanda who took home 1st shares that she had a blast & that
best of all I shared a lot of laughs with friends all day
I totally agree with Amanda. It was a fun day because you spent it with friends.
Thank you to all the sponsors like Active Ride Shop above who had a tent and some sock game that I absolutely could not win, while Michelle & Minna just kept winning. Nikita Clothing who gave us the rad pins below & always supports active, creative & collaborative girls
and all the other sponsors and supporters. Without sponsors, supporters, and volunteers events like this wouldn’t happen.
Plus a huge thank you to Micaela Ramirez, Founder of Poseiden Foundation & Steve Berra for opening the doors and keeping the doors open.
Below group shot from Active Ride Shop who has more great stuff on their IG story.
