Girls Skate Scene

We know our girl scene is growing little by little and with the last skate-girl events we have met new faces and seen more girls shredding harder than ever, stand up slides and some bad ass carving is lifting the girls game in Sydney.
Recently on the 21st of June  Ash Ward,  Lea Robbo and Maga McWhinnie (me) held the Girls Skate Date Sydney a small skate day where many girls from NSW came to meet each other and shared our skills about everything on a longboard, including the basic and safety knowledge, speed sessions and the art of getting sideways. Maidens of Steeze , Longboard Girls Crew Australia and Birds on Boards got together for this at Basement Skate and heres the run down.

We had some local Uni girls, some shredders from the central coast and even the blue mountains. The day was a huge success and the girls were shredding hard and they all rocked on later that night at the Go Skateboarding Day Australia Kritical Mass . I held the event to promote our style of skateboarding and introduce the girls to the Sydney city runs, it was super fun and really crowed. We skated the whole city, held several slide jams and bombed some hills and car parks. Basement Skate gave some gift certificate  away too.
I'm very proud and stoked to know our girl scene keeps on growing and the girls are killing it! Can't wait to see more over the year.

On the last week of June some professional video editors and film makers : Benjamin Baggings (Redscope) , Andre Reade and Tristan Casin became interested in our sport and fascinated on the girls doing it. These guys contacted Ash Ward, Amanda Young and me and organized to film us on our favorite local spots. Have a look at their teasers and soon we will be posting the full length film.
