Skateboarding with Love

I love the picture above & video below because they are learning skateboarding with love.  They are learning from their mom @saydegar.

@saydegar was first on the blog in December 2015

and then in March 2016

@saydegar is a skater, mom of two and founder of AFRIKATIK.

I absolutely love @saydegar‘s style on

& off the board.

She’s in Spain.  Where are you having fun skateboarding?  More girls really do skate when they see stylish girls having fun skating.   Hope you share like @saydegar does.

Skateboarding in a Skirt

Cristina looks super stylish skateboarding in her skirt – click the picture above to watch the video.

She looks stylish whenever she skates.

and in whatever she’s wearing

One of her favorite places to skate is

She’s a Team Rider for Smile Longboards and is grateful to have the opportunity to introduce more girls to the fun of skating.

More girls skate when they see stylish girls skating so I’m very grateful to Cristina and Smile Longboards for showing the world #girlscanskate.

Wherever you are in the world, whatever level you’re at, if you’re having fun skating share your pictures & stories to inspire even more girls to try skating.


Muchas Gracias

In this video Marina’s dropping in at Rhodes Skatepark for the first time.

And in this video she’s popping out of a pool.

Something tells me this girl can skate anywhere in the world.

Marina travelled to Boise Idaho where Rhodes Skatepark is as a foreign exchange student.  It looks like she’s not the only one visiting.

For all the latest on the park check them out below.  They’re on a mission & when people are on a mission that’s when things get real!

Keep sharing where you’re skateboarding because more girls skateboard when they see stylish girls skateboarding & get encouragement!  Plus it’s rad to find out about parks all over the world – now Idaho is on the bucket list.

Playa Zurriola more SkatingFashionistas Daily

Screen shot 2016-01-21 at 11.12.53 AM

I think of skateboarding as rolling yoga – so I love pictures of meditating on your board.  I also love this picture from saydegar in Play Zurriola because it shows that more girls skateboard when they see stylish girls skateboarding.  And skateboarding is good for girls because it increases self-confidence of the body, mind, and soul.

On December 9th the blog featured saydegar and now we are featuring her princess.   Thanks saydegar for inspiring our youth.

The Sky is Not the Limit in Playa Zurriola

Screen shot 2015-12-02 at 11.52.26 AM

This is saydegar in Playa Zurriola and she captured her photo – Don’t tell me the sky is the limit ….

I hate when people tell me what my limits are because I’m a girl or because I’m an amateur skateboarder or for whatever nonsense.  We are all unique and capable of much more than we’d ever imagine – so if someone is talking limits to you – know it’s them not you that’s limited.

As for Playa Zurriola – on the 9th day of December we’re in Spain.  Style after all is universal.
