The best part of being a blogger is staying in contact with the girls I write about and writing follow up posts on the amazing things they do.
I first met Corinne getting ready for EXPOSURE Skate 2015. My first post on her was as a French skater girl living in NYC.
Then I wrote about her as part of the sPACY cLOUD team and now I’m thrilled to be sharing the work she’s doing to promote girls skateboarding in Paris with Realaxe Association
Non-profit Association encourageant les filles pratiquant le skateboard ! Nonprofit Organization supporting girl skateboarders! Paris 🇫🇷
One of the things Realaxe Association does is encourage girls to skateboard together. To help that happen they held a Girls Skateboarding Weekend on October 1st & 2nd 2016.
Above a video of Charlotte Hym one of the 13 girls who attended. They started on Saturday at Cosanostra Skatepark with a jam session.
Then on Saturday after brunch (these are my kind of girls) they went to Jemmapes Skatepark for another jam session and even more girls came.
The girls ranged in age with the youngest being Lena at 7 and had various skills, Aicha came for her first lesson. They all agreed that the weekend was encouraging and made them want to skateboard even more.
In addition to encouraging girls to skateboard Realaxe Association supports female artists. The weekend included an exhibition at Wunderbar, rue Baurepaire.
Relax Association was thankful to the DJs that played during the exhibition Old Jay and Grambe, photos Marion in the Woods, Kate Murray Art of Caroline Dynybil, video of Estelle Beauvais, and Le Shape who collaborated on one of the boards, and Jule et Lily for the pin

Thank you Corinne for sharing this and be watching for more posts on Corinne, as the owner of co2designs she’s busy working on tons of projects, but always has time for her love of skateboarding and will be sharing how she paints skateparks and is now teaching skateboarding in France.
Wherever you are in the world having fun skateboarding take the time to share because that’s how more girls decide to try skateboarding. It’s sport, art, transportation, exercise and builds self-confidence so help other girls see that they too can keep it stylish on & off the board.
