Sharing Skateboarding & Secrets

I love the smile on Naomi’s face in this video from Victoria Park.

A smile is the most stylish accessory anyone can wear.

In the video Naomi’s on her new mini cruiser.  She also enjoys longboarding plus a lot of other sports including cycling, she’s an instructor at Boom Cycle.

As to why she likes skateboarding and thinks other girls should try it:

I started skating a few months ago and I’m having so much fun with it. It’s the best feeling when you begin to notice your own progress. More girls should get out there and try it, it’s never too late to learn new skills. I love it because I’m transferring all my board skills together (wake, surf and snow). I’m hoping all this skating is going to make me a better snowboarder 🏂! Let’s see when I hit the slopes this season.

As someone who believes skateboarding is sport, art, transportation, rolling yoga and build self-confidence, I have to believe that it would help with all your board balancing.

Be sure to check out Naomi to see where she goes on her skateboard and how it improves her skiing.

I can’t believe I waited 29 years to jump on a skateboard. Every minute of every day, we are all a little bit closer to dying. Don’t waste any more time wishing you’d done something, just go and do it! Don’t worry too much, don’t over think things, take those risks, make those mistakes. It all makes us stronger, enriches our souls and helps us grow. In the end, we will only regret the chances we didn’t take.

Thanks Naomi for sharing – more girls skateboard when they see girls skateboarding and hear that it’s always the right time to try something new.   Better to try and know if you like something then to wonder what if!

Thanks too for sharing Regent’s Canal – some secrets are meant to be shared.

Catori_Tribe’s next event is December 11th 2016.  All ages and abilities welcome – come learn – meet new people – #jointhetribe

You know I love open invites so I had to find out more.  This is what Catori_Tribe said

It’s a free event we run on the second Sunday of every month, we encourage women/girls of all ages and abilities to come and meet new people and skate! We offer free classes and board hire for the less experienced and a network of girls all supporting each other and just having a good time! We are currently organising a skate jam and party for early next year as well as a skate/surf/yoga retreat!

I’m excited to add this to the Events Page.  Catori_Tribe is based in London and generally meets in Victoria Park.  If you have an event that supports and welcomes all girls be sure to share it.  More girls skateboard when they see girls skating and get encouragement.

Today & everyday I’m thankful to those who share skateboarding – Happy Thanksgiving.  I know it’s an “American” holiday, but I think the reminder to be thankful makes the world a more stylish place.

Skateboarding with your friends never gets old – it just stays fun!

Please share your pictures skateboarding with your friends.  Yes, even if you have to teach them how to skateboard – one way or another more girls will skateboard & keep skateboarding!

London’s Calling and they said check out the House of Vans.  lovelks shared this picture from a Girls Night at the House of Vans London.

She had a rad time and definitely plans on skateboarding more.  Usually that’s all it takes – try skateboarding, like skateboarding, keep skateboarding.

Keep sharing your pictures of skateboarding for fun – especially love the ones where girls are having fun together.
