Your Wave Will Come

I love this video from @minishak27 and I really love the positive message in her bio

??Stay strong, Stay positive and never give up, Your wave will come ???

It’s so true.  Waves come and not always when you expect them or how you’d like them.  If you keep a positive attitude and keep believing in yourself you’ll survive all the waves and be ready for your wave.

Opportunity isn’t always obvious.  Often you have to take risks and/or make sacrifices both of which are easier with a positive attitude.

Cat’s in the UK where she’s skating to help with her surfing.  Where are you having fun skating?  Hope you take the time to share so others can be inspired to try.


Lnr Viola Loves Skateboarding & Singing

Lnr Viola shares this skateboarding video.  Love how she keeps it stylish & warm while skating.

In addition to loving skateboarding, she loves soul, funk, reggae and rock.   She’s the owner of LNRmusicmanagement Festival & a singing teacher.  She definitely inspires girls to follow their passions and stay true to their style.

above she’s in Exeter, Devon

More girls skateboard when they see stylish girls skateboarding.  And I love when they also share their other talents.  #girlscanskate and do so much more!

Where & how are you keeping it stylish on & off the board?  Hope you share soon.

Teresa Madeline on Why She Loves to Skateboard

I loved the style in Teresa Madeline’s picture so I asked her why she likes to skate and why she thinks skateboarding is good for girls.

I like to skate because it gives me an opportunity to express myself.  It has also brought me countless amazing friends from all over the world and it’s great exercise, much more fun than going to the gym.

I also think it gives me a new way to explore places that I visit and see things I never would have seen otherwise.

I think skating is great for girls because it gives you a sense of freedom and helps you to learn to be fearless, to accept failure and try again.

Skateboarding helps you prove to yourself that if you put your mind to something and try, try and try some more, you will eventually succeed.

Thanks Teresa Madeline your answers like your picture are exquisite.

When I started this blog all I knew is that I wanted more girls to skateboard for fun and wear what they wanted.  To me skateboarding is sport, art, transportation, exercise, and self-confidence building so I wanted other girls to benefit from it.

Everyday I’m amazed at how many girls around the world are willing to share how skateboarding is fun for them and how it helps them.  More girls do skateboard as they see girls having fun skateboarding, staying true to their style, and getting encouragement.


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 an Urban Hippie Collective


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.


Wanna be in our gang? Come and skate with us on the second Sunday of every month, whether you’ve never stepped on a skateboard before or are a seasoned pro, it’s all love! We offer free lessons, board hire and good times!

Like a Girl

Like a Girl is a non-profit that offers self development and empowerment program and activities for girls & young women.

I first found out about Like a Girl when I saw this video.


It’s captioned

@kellessekate teaching a boy the basics of balance on and off the skateboard.

Empowered girls aren’t afraid to work with boys and teach others what they know.  We are all stronger when we work together and teach each other.  The student as well as the teacher learn together.


Tons of rad pictures on their IG, hope you check them out & yes they have a store too!

Enyahiannon shares this video of Poppy.   Love that Poppy has a cheerleader and that she wants to cheer other girls into giving skateboarding a look.

More girls skateboard when they see girls and get encouragement so please take the time to share – your pictures, videos, & stories.

Skateboarding is sport – art – transportation – exercise – rolling yoga – confidence building – skateboarding is good for girls all around the world!  Poppy is in the UK – I’m in California share were you’re keeping it stylish on & off the board!

Skateboarding Spam

Screen shot 2015-11-30 at 11.07.36 AM

Rianneskate called this video Skateboarding Spam!!  I think it’s an example for her patience and persistence.  If you don’t have patience when you start skateboarding you will if you keep skateboarding.

Check out more from her and other Girl Skate UK riders in the Barcelona Ladies Street Edit.  Strong girls support each other and I love to see how UK girl skateboarding is so supportive!

8010 Skate Park review by Kitty-May

The new “8010 Skatepark” recently opened in my local park of Rothwell.


I was lucky to be involved in the plans for developing the park in memory of a local skateboarder. This is the first phase of building and we can’t wait to see what will come next.  poseliketwiggy

“Rothwell skatepark has helped me learn new things and I think it is also good for riding around and things like that.I like the various sizes of the steps because I can Ollie off of them and they help me be able to get higher doing tricks.”

by Kitty-May Laird age 9.



thanks for sharing – where are you skateboarding?  More girls skate when they see girls skateboard and we encourage each other.

this park was community built in memory of Leeds skateboarder Daniel Parrinder
