Nolliee Marosa

Nolliee Marosa get tons of encouragement from her dad.

I love how @wood_pusher4life encourages her.  I hope you watch the video above to see she gets right back up and she succeeds – that’s the power of encouragement.

Life’s full of ups & downs – skateboarding helps you develop the courage you need to keep getting up & trying again.  That courage comes even quicker when you have a cheerleader to encourage you!

How awesome that there’s dads out there who encourage their daughters to be anything they want & let them know they can do it & that they’re never alone!

The world needs more encouragement & less criticism.

Skateboard at Any Age

Janie captioned this video

Started remembering my teen years lol

You’re never too young or too old to skate & if skating makes you feel younger it’s just another reason to skate!

Janie’s keeping it stylish on & off the board in Houston, Texas.  Wherever you’re having fun skateboarding, I’d love if you shared your pictures & stories.  More girls do skate when they see girls skating & get encouragement.

 

 

Picnic & Mini Sesh with her Niece

Love the picture and the caption from Bad Idea Skate Crew

Teaching the next generation! We had a beautiful picnic and badass mini sesh this weekend at Pearsall Park 🤘💕

When you skateboard for fun, there’s even more fun when you share it with friends & family.

From the looks of things this Bad Idea Skate Crew has a lot of fun

on and off the board!

They are in San Antonia, Texas.  Where are you having fun skateboarding?  More girls – people – skate when they see skating is fun.

 

I Remember When

Isabella shares the above video from Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park & I love the caption.

I remember back when I thought this ramp was huge!!

So many things are scary – face the fear & you may just find they’re fun.

Isabella is a busy 9 year old she

loves Skating, Photography, Making Movies and any other type of adventure I can find!! www.super8skates.com-comingsoon

Thanks for sharing Isabella & I’m sure your photos are inspiring other girls to give skateboarding a try.

 

Skateboarding at Christmas Time

Alicia shares this picture of what skateboarding in Texas around Christmas time can look like

it’s of her daughter Brenna on her new jelly board.  Skating is just one of the sports Brenna has fun at .  She also loves surfing,  gymnastics, and volleyball.

Alicia says there aren’t a lot of skaters – boy or girl – in their town.  I think that will change because:  more people skate when they see how fun it can be.

Thanks for sharing Alicia & Brenna.  I love how Brenna keeps it stylish on & off the board.

Sporty girls who share are the most stylish of all!  Please share your stories of how skateboarding is fun and why it’s good for girls to skate.  To me skateboarding is sport, art, transportation, exercise and builds self-confidence – so lets get more girls skating for fun.

Annual Rock Around the Rock – Needs More Girls

Kaspar Heinrici hosted his annual Rock Around the Rock this past weekend.  Rock Around the Rock is a two-part event, which consists of a 9.8 mile long distance push (LDP) as well as a 13-story garage race in Dallas, Texas.

Coastal Phoenix shares this picture and the message below

This year Kaspar worked with some sponsors and put up incredible prizes including gear, cash for top men’s, and a bonus cash prize for top overall men’s AND women’s – $500 each!!!!

THE ONLY PROBLEM is that we NEED MORE GIRLS.

When you see a girl skating, you should get excited. Doesn’t matter her style, preferred stance or discipline, or where she comes from.

Doesn’t even matter if you just flat out don’t like the gal, SUPPORT FEMALES to encourage the growth of the gender’s participation!!!

Big Concrete Skateparks & Amazing Skater Girls in Texas

vert wall

When I think of a vert ramp – I think wood – Jordan aka extremelife2003 has opened my eyes by sharing this picture of North Houston Skatepark which used to be called Spring Skatepark.

Things really are big in Texas because there’s another large vert ramp at the Downtown Skatepark known as the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark

Jordan started skateboarding when she met Christian Hosoi for the first time when she was 5 years old.   On her first day, Christian Hosoi was so awesome to ask everyone to step out of the bowl so that he could take her by the hands and roll her back and forth in the bowl.
holding hands
Jordan’s mom Israel says “It all started when I saw Christian Hosoi ‘s documentary on Showtime Rising Son, “The Legend of Skateboarder Christian Hosoi”, a very moving documentary that any skateboarder should see. I was so moved and inspired by his documentary that I told myself that I just had to meet him, and bring him to Houston, Texas to share his story.  It took a while to get him to Houston because Christian was so much in demand then and even now. Since then, Jordan and Christian share a special friendship, he as a mentor for a little girl who aspires to one day be the female version of Christian Hosoi. As you can tell by her wardrobe style. Lol!”

Thanks to Christian’s teaching and watching his video’s – Jordan now loves airs just like him.
One of the biggest compliments that we get is when people ask me when they see her skate, “how old is he?”  And when I answer that Jordan is a she, they say, but she skates like a boy!  And I say “yes she does”!  Israel

I feel blessed that Jordan and her supportive mom Israel shared these pictures and her story with us.  Where are you skateboarding?  More girls do skateboard as they see girls skateboarding!

I’m actually going to meet Jordan when she comes to EXPOSURE Skate 2015 in Encinitas, CA her board sponsor Hosoi Skateboards is a Silver Sponsor – who else is coming on November 7th?  Whether you’re coming or not share your skate pictures because #girlscanskate!
