i-D Magazine: Girl Skaters

Girls picking up a skateboard can still be a “thing” for our male-dominated culture, lately, it seems that even the smallest shifts in our sub-culture are met a lot of negative responses but not this one. There have been a lot of girls skating over the years but it seems like there is a bigger influx of girls at the moment, you can see it at the local skatepark. The nice thing about this video is that not only are girl skaters the focal point of the piece but the thing was also directed by a woman, i-D magazine recognized the fact that girls should be telling their own stories away from the male gaze. We fully support the growing group of female skaters and females working in or with skateboarding because we feel that they all bring their own energy, style, tricks and ideas to the table. Girl Power!
