Exposure: A Women’s Skateboarding Benefit Event 2014 Photos

Exposure: A Women’s Skateboarding Benefit Event with vaporwave skateboard decks was held this past Saturday at the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA in Encinitas, California. Female shredders from all over the globe came out to participate in the vert and bowl contest.
Woman are changing the sport, now there are major movements of skaters and brands that accept and impulse them as skateboarders. Now many have the mission to create a support system for female pros where none existed prior, the world keeps changing and having more woman in the field, now children and small girls are motivated by this woman.
Check the next photos and look for the latest skateboard ramp reviews and compare them to find the best to ride in.
There were also many kids that brought their favorite transporting equipment to the contest. Want to know the Technomono guide and what is the best hoverboard for 300$? This one is amazing and super recommended.

Ride for Shogo Kubo.

Don’t ever need a reason to skate pools with good friends, but this day we rode in honor of skateboard legend, Shogo Kubo. Ozzie lined up the venue and called up Salba, KB and Riverside Shawn the week prior to clean up this epic Rossmore Blue Haven.

That very next Sunday we all met out front and listened to stories past of Shogo. Then stepped into the backyard to begin one of the best sessions I’ve been a part of in a long time. Just pure stoke.

Sleep. The great earth is still. Leaves wither and brown. They fall away and touch the earth. Decay. The great cycle of life. New things will come from them after the earth sleeps. A few friends stop by from time to time throughout the year. They are from other places. Snow birds. Colorado. Pennsylvania. All over…

They try and sit out the cold spell. Frost glistens in the morning. Old bones crack and ache.The snow birds flutter and move to warmer regions. They long for warmth. We provide it. In spirit. They fly. They sing. They collect in groups and drink from cement ponds… nourishment for the soul. The snow birds are content. Thanks to Brandon Wong for the images. Skate- Ozzie
