Janke Spangenberg is a Ballito skater girl. Don’t know where Ballito is – no worries I didn’t either. Ballito is in South Africa. As I’m on my mission to get more girls skateboarding for fun – I meet so many more people than I would have and learn about places and things I never new existed.
I also find awesome reminders – Janke’s bio reads live life to its fullest
Live life to its fullest on & off the board. The world is full of believers & supporters – be one and you’ll find others.
I saw this board – I loved this board. When I investigated – using my Veronica Mars skills – I found the artist is Melka a tattoo apprentice with a Big Cartel shop and a Rad to the Bone IG. This board was commissioned (I’m all about custom) and I can’t wait to see more of her art.
Oh and of course she skates and is happy to say there are more girls now than when she started. Let’s keep seeing more girls skateboarding and more skateboards designed by girls. Skateboarding is totally sport and art, let’s show the world!
Had the pleasure to spread the word about EXPOSURE Skate yesterday at the Clash at Clairemont – a day of skate, BMX, & Music to benefit Grind for Life & The Mission Valley YMCA/Krause Family Skake and Bike park.
Met hundreds of people who believe girls can skate! Really hope to see a lot of photos from the girls I met – more girls do sk8 as they see girls sk8ing. Till next time keep it stylish on & off the board.
Second youngest member of @wearefourthave Saphi 11 jumping down 2 stairs to big 3 stair drop. Only on her board for 2 months…- Chris Bedford
Saphi’s a quick learner at skateboarding, a natural at style, and yes she’s in a band: We Are Fourth Avenue. She has talent and style on & off the board – as do so many other girls. Keep sharing your photos and stories – girls are unstoppable when we encourage each other.
Besides longboarding, Anna in Germany loves photography and travel. Today’s travel trip – take your skateboard on all your adventures . Remember your camera too – because more girls skate as they see girls skating.
Southern California to Magdeburg, Germany may be miles apart but both places have girls who keep it stylish on & off the board – where are you skating?
First time on a skateboard – looks like she’s flying which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
Stella Rose is lucky to have a mom to inspire her to take chances. Yes, it’s scary to take chances but if you never do you’ll never know. Till next time keep it stylish and take chances on & off the board so you can fly too!
Sunset Mamma is skateboarding and sharing it with others – in this picture with her sons. I love seeing pictures like this because I skateboard with my dad. And thanks to the parents who don’t skate and still encourage their kids to skate. Love, acceptance, and encouragement are stylish on & off the board.
This summer I’m fundraising for EXPOSURE Skate by selling these Macy’s Shop for a Cause tickets. For each one sold $5 goes to empower girls through skateboarding that’s right Macy’s is donating 100% of ticket sales to EXPOSURE skate and a ticket gets you 25% off all day Saturday August 29th at any Macy’s in the world – this is a Golden Ticket see me soon to get yours!
This is a post from my IG today – I’m so excited that Macy’s believes #girlscanskate. I’ll be at the Macy’s Fashion Valley on August 29th – just in time for back to school shopping!
Ava is a girl like me – skating with her dad. She’s north of me – Canada north of me in Edmonton.
She’s only 7 but as you can see she’s got some rad outfits to keep it stylish on her board. It also looks like she has a couple of boards and one of them has my boy Jack from Nightmare Before Christmas.
Share with me how you keep it stylish on the board or how you keep your board stylish – together we inspire and encourage each other to be more on and off the board.
When I saw Emily’s picture I knew she was having fun. Then I found out she was a Cali girl living and skateboarding in Arkansas and knew she was a girl who keeps it fun & fashionable everywhere.
I googled it – looks like it’s closer than I thought but far. Emily keep it stylish on and off the board and let us know if you get more girls skateboarding for fun in Arkansas – we believe in you.
