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


Is That a Beard?

@isthatfloortjex asks in the caption

What do you guys think of my beard?

Love her sense of humor & her style.  Below a video.

She’s a team rider for Haven Boards in the Netherlands.

Where are you keeping it stylish on & off the board?  More girls around the world skate when they see stylish girls having fun skating and we encourage each other.  Hope you share your pictures, adventures, and inspiration soon!



Smiling when Skateboarding is Stylish

I always say more girls skate when they see girls skateboarding – it also helps inspire girls when they see it’s fun.  I love Tessel’s smile!

Tessel_dekker is skateboarding in Dordrecht – sometimes called Dordt in the western Netherlands – in province of South Holland.

I also love her glasses – ok maybe because they’re like mine.  No matter where we live we all have similarities and we all have something special – in this case her smile so glad she shared!
