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.
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. http://instagram.com/p/p42veakpwv/?modal=true
