No Waves No Problem
Skate like a girl, happily. Here's three women gliding across the streets of Bristol showing us how to do it. With the skateboarding scenestill very heavily male-dominated, it’s important to show people that female skateboarders are here to stay. “When sidewalk surfing hit big in the 1960s, both males and females skated,” says Michael Brooke, publisher of Concrete Wave magazine. “The population skewed more towards males but, I mean, Pattie McGee doing a handstand on her board made the cover of Life magazine in 1965 – that’s one of most iconic skateboarding images of all time.”
Meet Jessie, Tilly and Saskia three women who have learnt to ignore the stereotypes and build a friendship based around the sport.
