Girl skateboarders are cool

I’m so used to seeing, over the past couple of decades, groups of boys skateboarding or one lone girl skateboarder amongst a group of boys.

Recently, though, I’ve seen a few groups of girl skateboarders walking (with boards) or skateboarding around San Francisco, and I have to say it’s refreshing. It’s cool to see these youngsters going against the traditional gender roles.

It kind of reminds me of the boy cheerleaders in Leeds.

With you on this one :)
I’m a roller-blader, which has always been a bit more mixed, and offer an encouraging nod /smile to female boarders (rare in London) when I see them mixed in with a group of lads.

Incidentally, when I got married I asked a female mate to be my best man. Best decision ever. In the time it’d take a guy to organise a stag event (not sure what the US equiv is) she had organised a stag night, suit-fitting and a wedding day breakfast. COOL!

I all agree! :)

And the resent development her in my town, Oslo, Norway, are that a lot of them have long-boards.

Just wanted 2 let u know.
