First Time Skateboarding

Jennifer shared this video with the caption

First time at the skate park and now they want to come everyday!

I’m so happy she encourages girls to skate. ¬†I’m also super impressed at how fast they’ve learned.

Whether they’re at the park in Santa Clarita or on the street, they are having fun skating!

Where are you having fun skating or encouraging girls to skate?

When you share your stories you inspire even more girls to be this happy!

If Your Friend Can’t Keep Up – Get Them a Skateboard

Since other people in this household can’t run and keep up with me to save their life, we’ve resorted to this to get me my exercise ūüėā¬† ¬†– ¬† @life.as.cohen

Yet another reason girls should skateboard.  Skateboarding is sport, art, transportation, exercise, rolling yoga, builds self-confidence, and lets you keep up with adventure dogs.

Cohen & Tammy are having fun at Ocean Beach Dog Beach in San Diego.  Where are you have fun skating?

More girls skate when they see stylish girls having fun skateboarding plus more dogs get their exercise when they have  girls to skate with.

Do it for the dogs!

Ash Dreaming of More Girls Skateboarding

Video from ash_aka_bgirlagame or just Ash from a skate park she found in Green Port, New York.  Her bio says

My dream is for more girls to sk8!

I think she’s doing a good job of making her dream come true because more girls skateboard when they see girls skateboarding and she definitely shares her skate pictures.

Earlier in November she was at EXPOSURE Skate in Encinitas, California – this picture by Olga Aguliar.

Hope more girls share how, where, and why they have fun skateboarding and of course you can always share again.  Every adventure that inspires others, is an adventure I want to blog about.

With an IG account called jo_jo_nation, you are sure to catch this JoJo’s attention.

I found out that on Wednesday Рmembers of JoJo Nation may indeed be wearing pink & you might find us at San Clemente Skate Park.  This lovely skater girl is Scarlett aka Scarlo.

Thanks Scarlett for showing us how to wear pink both on & off the board  everyday.  No such thing as too much pink or sparkle.  And thanks to mom who keeps encouraging Scarlett.

More girls skate when they see girls skateboarding & get encouragement so hope others share there pictures and stories soon!

Justine captured this IG shot Happiness is nailing the push.

I love that! ¬†When you skateboard for fun you enjoy¬†the entire process. ¬† And at least for me that’s the attitude that makes me want to keep skateboarding. ¬†I want to skate with happy people.

She’s skating at Verdugo Skate Park. ¬†Where are you skateboarding and having fun – those are the stories I love to share and that’s what inspires more people to skate & keep skateboarding!

Skateboarding Across the Bay Bridge

Screen shot 2016-07-08 at 11.04.00 AM

Madmarica went skateboarding across the whole Bay Bridge.

I say add it to the Bucket List – when in San Francisco or Oakland skate the bridge

Screen shot 2016-07-08 at 11.10.40 AM

The San Francisco‚ÄďOakland Bay Bridge (known locally as the Bay Bridge) is a complex of bridges spanning San Francisco Bay in California. As part of Interstate 80 and the direct road between San Francisco and Oakland, it carries about 240,000 vehicles a day on its two decks. It has one of the longest spans in the United States.
