When asking for support for the blog, someone sent me this. I said “great more math then mom what’s this supposed to mean?”
My mom helps with the blog and now is the graph interpreter. The following is her opinion and I support it.
Fewer people are googling Girls Skateboarding now than a decade ago. Could be a million reasons why. I wouldn’t worry about what’s happened in the last decade. Focus on today: keep showing girls skateboarding.
Girls Longboarding was not even on the graph in the beginning. Proof that interests change – they can grow or decline it’s largely based on their advocates.
Who sends a 13 year old skatingfashionista a graph? Graphs aren’t fun or fashionable.
When I started Skatingfashionista I knew there were skater girls out there – I’m blown away by how many and how talented they are.
Cheetahzita is killing it in Thailand and I’m super stoked to see she’s getting support. Check her out!
I shared this picture on skatingfashionista IG – with the message that some say girls can’t or shouldn’t skate. They are wrong.
I know it helped one girl get back on her board. And I know she’s not the only one intimidated to practice because the parks are filled with boys. I was terrified of boys at the skate park.
Looking back – I was a big part of my fears – the story in my head was all boys hate girl skaters so I was sure they all hated me. Now a couple years later I realize they don’t all hate me and the ones that do would hate me even if I didn’t skate. I also found that a lot of skaters are like me – word limited – I start talking when I know you.
So follow this blog & it’s IG show the world there is support for girl skaters! More girls skate when they see girls skating.
I love her style – having a blue stripe myself, I’m a total fan of the pink. She’s as smart as she is stylish – biologist in graduate school! Follow Adriiiaa on Instagram – she’s definitely a girl that inspires me to keep skating and maybe even do some homework!
Remember to share your pictures of stylish shredders – more girls skate as they see girls skateboarding.
Skating is global and ageless – check out Emily in the UK.
She’s a lucky girl to have a daddy supporting her but the skating is all her watch the video to see her shred. You can check her out on the vert ramp too!
Emily really has so many awesome shots on her Instagram it was hard to pick just one – in the end I went with Hello Kitty one of my all time favorite fashionistas.
Cup_Cake_Cathy celebrated Christmas with this Ollie. Whether it’s a London Gap or Euro Gap it’s definitely worth checking her skating on IG.
Stylish shredders are all over the world – where will the next skating fashionista be from?
Me & my dad – literally that’s his shadow. Thank you daddy for believing I could skate before I did.
I hope all the girls starting skating have someone as supportive as my daddy & my coach Neal Mims – who make it ok to fall and show you falling isn’t failing.
Neal you do take way better pictures than daddy – he tries bless him he tries.
Of course you can skate in a skirt. I especially like short skirts with leggings or tennis skirts.
Check out Thaisgazarra on IG she shreds in style and teaches others to be skating fashionistas.
Hope this Christmas lots of girls got skateboards so there’ll be more and more pictures of skating fashionistas!
Maybe no one’s told you – skate boarding isn’t scary – it’s sport and art – it will teach you balance on & off the board – all you have to do is believe & do!
Happy Holidays – see you at the skate park!
