Skateboarding Together

Skateboarding can be fun alone, but why skate alone when you can skate with friends.

I love to see pictures where girls are getting encouragement to skate.   Thanks Marissa for sharing this video of 2 year old Mila.

Skateboarding is good for girls – it’s sport, art, transportation, exercise and builds self-confidence.  You learn so many life lessons from skateboarding from “falling isn’t failing” to how to approach a problem with a million solutions until you find the right one (patience, determination, brainstorming, etc.) so encourage a girl to skateboard and you’re encouraging a girl to learn life skills.

Keep sharing your pictures and stories because more girls do skateboard when they see stylish girls skating!

Awesome job Mila – asking for a skateboard was a very good idea!

Thank you to all those who help girls get skateboards and the gear they need to skate.

Karen Surfing the Concrete Waves

Karen shares this video of surfing the concrete waves.  As Karen’s IG shows she keeps it stylish on & off the board.

In addition to a love of skating, Karen and I share a love of blue velvet boots.  Style is universal.

If you’re out there keeping it stylish on & off the board – please take a minute to share because seeing stylish girls skateboarding is the best way to get more girls skateboarding for fun.

 

Dani Skateboarding with Style in Brazil

Dani shares the above picture from Rio.  She’s a Brazilian DJ, actress, and skateboarder.

I absolutely love how Dani shares the fun of skateboarding.

Where are you keeping it stylish on & off the board?  When you share your pictures and stories you encourage other girls to try skateboarding.  And that’s a good thing because skateboarding is sport, art, transportation, exercise and builds self-confidence.

The lessons you learn from skateboarding will help you in life – so share the fun & potential with other girls!

Celebrate Your Skateboarding Journey

Motivation keeps you going.  Claudia aka @yukio_panda shares how she stays motivated to skateboard.

I love her video and her caption

✨Because even if you’re a beginner you need to see some improvement to keep you motivated 💪🏻 So here are some clips I filmed 🎥(oh yeah and I did a hippie jump too but I didn’t get it on tape unfortunately! ☹️)

 

I totally agree that celebrating and enjoying the journey is the best motivation.  I’m always inspired by beginners and their love to learn.

Thanks for sharing Claudia and can’t wait till you share your next video!

Claudia is keeping it stylish on & off the board by Lac de Louvain-la-Neuve.

It’s in the French speaking part of Belgium.  I knew I was taking French in school for a reason!

 

Skateboarding with the Family

Love this shot shared by Jacki.  She recently took an extra vacation week and had fun skateboarding with her girls.

I love pictures like this because they show skateboarding is fun for so many reasons.  You can skate with your friends & family, get a great workout and enjoy the most beautiful sites.

What adventure are you going on with your board?  Sharing your skateboarding adventures encourages other girls to give skating a try.

Devon Her Truck is Back

Devon aka mermaid sighting shares this video with the caption

took my new @arborgirls #whiskeyproject skateboard to moorpark skatepark today to skate with @the_train_dude @micerussell and lose my new back truck for a minute

Her truck is back in business.

I love how the mermaid has a squid deck.  I am partial because it’s my deck too!  I also have in common with Devon that she’s a blogger.  Check her blog The Tale of a Mermaid

Below she’s at Laguna Hills Skatepark

where are you having fun skating?  More girls skate when they see girls skating so I hope you take time like Devon did to share.

Portugal Skater Girls

The above picture from Sk8GirlsCrew is captioned

Finally we girls managed to have the female category in a skateboarding competition.  We are here & we came to stay.

Sk8GirlsCrew is in Portugal.

Girls have the power to change the world.  Where ever you are, if you have a story of how you’re keeping it stylish on & off the board – making the world a better place through acceptance & equality – share your story.  Empowered girls inspire other girls to follow their passions and change the world.

Below some of the girls of Sk8GirlsCrew follow them on IG to see more.
