San Leandro, CA – Skate Industry News: Skate Like A Girl Has A Whole New Meaning

‘In a male-dominated sport, Skate Like A Girl creates an inclusive community for girls, women and transgender people of all ages who want to learn how to skateboard. This group of skaters promotes confidence, empowerment, and self-expression by using skateboarding as a vehicle to meet other like-minded people. The organization, Skate Like A Girl started in Olympia, Washington twenty years ago and has expanded to three locations in Seattle, Portland, and the Bay Area. The founders chose the name, Skate Like A Girl, to reclaim and empower the phrase “like a girl.” The Bay Area chapter is led by Kim Woozy, Director of Development alongside a team of staff instructors and volunteers. All share the same love and passion for skateboarding.’ reports ABC7 News

Looks like the term “Skate Like a Girl” has begun to take on a whole new meaning and it’s awesome to see a completely new demographic take an interest in skateboarding!

Skate Like a Girl offers tons of valuable services to anyone who is looking to learn and progress on and off the board! They help overcome fears and social stereotypes of what a “skater” should look like with a number of lessons, camps and other events. During this time they are working hard to ensure that everyone can still access their amazing services with virtual lessons, online meetups, zoom sessions and more! 

They are a non-profit, so they operate on donations and profits from co-lab products. One of their co-labs is with Spitfire. Wheels and hoodies are available at Orbit Skate if you want to help people Skate Like A Girl!
