RECAP: Ladies Night 2017

Girls in skateboarding isn’t news to us or anyone for that matter and for that reason we decided to host Ladies Skate Night at the warehouse last week. We want to continue to break down those gender barriers within skateboarding and strive to make people see that skateboarding is gender-less.
The event could not have been a success without the help of Spice Girls Skate, a group of three friends helping to promote girls in skateboarding. Also, a special thanks to Adidas, Element Women’s, and the Poseiden Foundation for helping sponsor the event. Make sure to give them all a follow on Instagram to stay up to date with the progression of women’s skateboarding!

Bro Style: BROTO Show

Good times and good vibes are exactly what you would expect from a Bro Style photo show and they provided plenty of that, along with free beer from Lagunitas. The gallery walls were filled with photos from team riders and their bros and as the clock struck 6 o’clock the gallery was flooded with people eager to take in the music. Girl Tears got the crowd going and even though Leo Romero was slightly handicap’d he and the rest of Travesura put on a great performance as always. Frontman Josh Harmony alongside Grant Hatfield ended the night with a bang letting you know how awesome their band Freckles really is.
