This is Mary Jo and her Instagram name speaks the truth maryjoskates! I love her skating and her attitude is inspiring: “I will adore anyone I cross paths with, positive vibrations attract me!”
It’s true you attract what you put out and look for. When I was afraid to skate – I didn’t skate and I saw only haters who scared me. Since starting this blog I seek out people like Mary Jo and I find I want to skate more each day.
I’ve said skateboarding is sport & art and gnarly_x_carly is a sporty and artsy girl. You just have to check out her IG.
There’s no right or wrong way to skate or do art– ok maybe mongo is sort of wrong. Go out there and celebrate your creativity.
Check out Frankensteinsplayhouse to see creative jewelry, accessories, and a skateboarding family. The collage is of mom. Soon you’ll see pictures of her daughter who’s learning from mom & dad! Oh don’t forget brother – skateboarding is family business – he’s shredding it too! Just love this story of a mom who’s been skating since she was a kid and now shares skateboarding with her children.
Love to all the moms who support their skateboarding daughters. You don’t have to skate to love and support a skateboarder. xoxo
It is my pleasure to introduce two of the most artistic bros I’ve ever met – Gucci Bear and Slick Sloth. They are no longer starving artists, they have their own business. Now that’s living the dream!
Gucci and Slick support 100% of skaters – love those who support girls & loving Slick’s bling & Gucci’s ice cream tat.
The world truly is a better place when there’s more love – so keep the love for girl skateboarders flowing!
I love Palm Beach Longboards Instagram. They totally support girls and feature riders just starting out to the super rad.
There was a time before cell phones, a time before the web, and a time before girls skateboarded. That time is the PAST. I live in the present where stylish shredders exist!
In skating and fashion – I wanna have FUN! Love skating with my girls & love Snorg Tees. They make the radest pop-culture inspired, random, and all around funniest t-shirts. Some tees are inspired by their customers. I’m wearing Corgzilla & he’s just one of so many – his bro is Thorgi!
I love all of the art by la_scimmia_nero_asfalto . When I saw these little people, I just had to know what are they saying.
Turns out they are saying – Respect & Help to others – we are all on the same board
Of course I asked boys & girls – the artist answered YES all…girlz&boyz
I want this on a t-shirt and stickers – who’s gonna help me get that done? And yes I will ask for one of them to turn up the fashion dial – they’re cute but one of them wearing a skirt – oh la la !
I love art, skateboarding, and fashion – so obviously I love everything about this photo from angelica_marchiori. To me skateboarding should be fun and fashionable. A lot of times in my community it becomes all about the trick. “What did you land?” That’s just one small part of skateboarding the bigger part is the freedom to just skate.
Love this look and vibe – perfect score!
This picture is from the Dorset Skateboarding Meet in the UK. They call this is a seedling session – how cute is that a seedling session because one day the little skater will bloom into a stylish shredder. And boys yes, you in the background on your scooters – I see you – what are you thinking?
That’s right we create the change we want to see. If you want to see more girls skateboarding support the girls already skateboarding and help other girls to learn. Getting more girls to skateboard is like a garden lots of work and fertilizer but keep caring for it and it will bloom.
I consider skateboarding sport & art. I’ve also likened it to rolling yoga. Good to know I’m not alone – in Brooklyn there’s Skate Yogi.
Check out Skate Yogi at their site and on IG. After a recent shredding party there was time for a ten board pyramid!
Exactly what skateboarding should be – all about the fun! And of course I’m digging the pink fashion!
Recently I got a comment regarding my support of other sites. I’m on a mission to get girls skateboarding – I want to show the world skateboarding can be fun & fashionable as well as what you see on TV. I also want girls to know they have supporters.
The media shows a snapshot of skateboarding this blog is about showing a bigger picture. I 100% want to let others know about people and organizations who believe GIRLS CAN SKATE!
