Marcela Having Fun Rolling

Marcela shares this video of having fun rolling.  She’s in Lagoa Do Araca – Imbiribeira – where she says #girlsjustwannahavefun

Where are you having fun on & off the board?  Girls supporting girls is stylish all around the world, so hope you share your pictures and stories soon!

International Women’s Day was yesterday – March 8th.  However, for real & lasting change we need to celebrate & encourage all people everyday.

 

 

Carol Loves Skateboarding

The video above is from Carol who’s skateboarding in Brazil.  She says

I’m still learning but I really love skateboarding. I’m from Brasilia – Brazil and here a lot of girls go skateboarding.   I do not think it matters whether you’re a man or a woman.   You should practice the sport that makes you happy!

I absolutely agree & I love Carol’s style both on & off the board.

When she’s not skateboarding, she might be studying because she’s a Biology student.  Love that she shows girls can be stylish, sporty & smart.

Where are you skating and what are your other interests?  Girls can be anything they want to be & more girls follow their dreams when they see other girls already living their dreams!

 

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!

Skateboarding the Fun Exercise

Skateboarding is sport and art plus fun exercise.  Marcelachicolli shares this video.   It’s just one of her rad pictures that show #girlscanskate – skateboarding is one of the most fun exercises out there.  Don’t believe it’s exercise – than you haven’t skated – it’s an incredible core workout plus aerobics.  Think of it as rolling yoga on caffeine!

And after just helping at Academy Skate Park I can assure you helping is a workout – running with the skateboard 😊

Slalom Sunday

Screen shot 2015-08-30 at 6.41.53 PM

Brunamonamu shares this picture from Eixão Norte, Brazilia. We call it Pico dos Longbrothers.

Slalom skateboarding is a form of downhill skateboard racing that first appeared in the 60’s and 70’s and has made a resurgence in popularity in the 2000s. Slalom racers skate down a course marked usually by plastic cones. The racer tries to get through the course with the fastest time, while knocking down the fewest number of cones. wikipedia

The last time I skated between the cones was at Skate Beyond the Scars – if you haven’t tried it – do it – it’s so fun after all it’s Sunday why not make it Slalom Sunday!

Till next time keep it stylish on & off the board – all boarding is fun!
