She’s in Love with her Arbor Board & Life

Love Poliana’s smile & her caption

I’m in love ūüė欆

I got to ask Poliana what she loves about skateboarding

For me skating means freedom, when you discover that overcoming fear can bring so much joy, it’s powerful! Skating is so good for the mind and body! Spread the word and love! ūüôĆūüŹľ‚̧ԳŹūüĎČūüŹľūü§ėūüŹľ

Balancing the mind & body is key to a happy life. ¬†Check out Poliana’s IG for more good advice like

The healthy body will come when you use the right tools . . . exercising with walking, biking, skating, surfing, swimming, running, kicking, posing with yoga!  Do what give you a warm feeling in your heart!  I choose happiness!

Thanks for sharing from California Poliana.  Where are you having fun skateboarding and how does it help you stay balanced & happy?  Hope you share soon.

 

Arbor Girl Sharing Skateboarding

Love this picture that Lisa shares from when she taught refugees in The Netherlands how to have fun skating.  She says her friend was shy but after a few tries she liked it!  Photo by Rosanne.

Lisa’s an Arbor Girl so it makes perfect sense that she chooses adventure!

Where are you sharing skating and choosing adventure?  More girls skate when they see girls skating.  Sharing & encouraging is stylish on & off the board so hope you share your pictures and stories soon.

Lisa sharing skateboarding is an act of kindness – so it’s the perfect post to start #RAKweek2017 to find out more about how the smallest act of kindness can make the world a better place check out

 

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.

Arbor Girls – Push 2 Progress – August 28

Screen shot 2016-08-29 at 2.27.15 PM

Another fun #Push2Progress with the Arbor Girls at Venice Beach thanks to the hardest working Arbor Girl in the world Tara Tate. ¬†Above she’s representing with her legs. ¬†Whiskey Legs that is by Malika Favre.

Screen shot 2016-08-30 at 11.38.15 AM

I’ve always loved the art on Arbor Boards and am especially excited about the Legs series because Malika is a French illustrator & art director based in East London and I love her work. ¬†If you haven’t checked her collaboration out on Arbor – go right after finishing this post.

Where am I in the picture Рlate as usually.  Probably stuck on the 405 when they took the shot.  No worries Arbor Girls are there for each other Рso those who could stayed & skated with me.

girls stay

If you haven’t been to Venice Beach it’s worth the trip – yes even if it becomes a 3+ hour adventure from Cardiff where I live. ¬†Very skateboard friendly all over the boardwalk & city plus there’s an Arbor Store.

The day of Push to Progress Рthere was a backyard sale Рso of course worth the trip.  They sell Arbor and they also sell other brands too Рall very stylish for on & off the board.

Below some pictures of¬†shenanigans with my Arbor Girls and some shots of Venice – because you really don’t know what you’ll see.

Video Silly Girl Skate Boards rider Kristy

I wasn’t able to make it – I’m thankful to IG for these high lights and looking forward to writing a post with Arbor GirlTara Tate the Great.

Would love to hear from other girls too – because more girls skate when they see girls skate and get encouragement.

Arbor Girls Gather

With an instagram bio line of for girls who choose adventure, ride fast & take chances with timeless style & grace РI love Arbor Girls.

Screen shot 2015-11-16 at 4.11.31 PM

On Sunday November 15th I headed north to the Arbor Venice showroom & headquarters where I met up for an Arbor Girls Ride Day.

Screen shot 2015-11-16 at 4.04.37 PM

Similar to the San Diego Arbor Girls Ride there was time for boardwalk/skatepark riding and then downhill.  I appreciate these gatherings because it forces me to meet new skater girls.

As the skatingfashionista on a mission to get more girls skateboarding for fun – you wouldn’t think I’d ever be shy about talking to another skater girl. ¬†You’d be wrong. ¬†I can write non stop my verbal skills – not so much.

It’s scary to talk to a stranger – you could be alone, they could be alone, there’s so many reasons it could be awkward. ¬†So a lot of times I smile at other skater girls and definitely answer back but don’t quite have it to start the conversation. ¬†An Arbor Ride Day takes the scary out because you know all the other girls are there to make friends too.

I’m not all about separation – girls skate here & boys over there. ¬†I believe we can thrive together –¬†just for me it’s easier to thrive after I’ve met someone in a smaller setting.

Especially when I¬†go to a big park or contest it’s easy to feel left out if I’m¬†the “new” girl – everybody already knows everybody and I’m not talking first so it can be a stalemate. ¬† Thanks to Arbor taking the time to have events like this I can meet people gradually and then have friends when I go to bigger events.

Yes – I can skate alone and be happy – it’s just fun to #ridewithyourfriends so thanks to Arbor and all the other organizations that make friend finding way easier and low stress. ¬†Oh and Arbor had prizes – this lucky girl won an Arbor Pocket Rocket.

Screen shot 2015-11-16 at 4.11.04 PM

Santa bring me an Arbor Pocket Rocket or¬†maybe an Axis¬†– I’ve been good and will use¬†them¬†for adventure (on a small hill)!
