Margielyn Didal Gets A Pro Model!

Monday, November 19, 2018

It was all love and shout outs for Margielyn Didal this weeknd on her instagram page letting the skate community know that her sponsor Eighty Five Two Shop presented her with her first pro model!

The Cebu native has had an impressive year, she competed in the X-Games Minneaopils for the first time, and took home GOLD at the Asian Games just a few months later.

Congrats on your new pro model Margielyn - well deserved!!

"Margie Soooooo HYPE!!!! thank you Eightfivetwo shop for having me in the team but today @jbs8five2 @antclaravall you guys suprised me for this awesome board ❤️❤️❤️ so much Love and Support from you guys"

La Girls Skate Sesh and Chicks in Bowls combined forces for a fun all girls skate meet up at Belvedere Skatepark in Los Angeles today. The ladies were out in full force and it was a blast seeing girls ripping on roller skates in the bowl, right next to female skateboarders and of course Tracie who shreds WCMX!

We love that these meet-ups are in all different places throughout LA and the surrounding areas, because  the crowd of girls is different each and every time. We met girls thast we had never met before and some that we only knew via Instagram - which was very cool!

Big thanks to Jazzmen and Chloe for putting these events together - we are proud to be a sponsor of this session, along with Bones and Autonomy skateboards!

See you next time!!

** If we posted a pic with no name under it, and you know who the girl is, please DM @girlisnota4letterword on Instagram and let us know so we can add it!  Thanks.

She's Changing India's Landscape, One Female Skater At A Time.

Monday, November 12, 2018

We are so in awe of Atit Verghese. You think being a female skateboarding in the USA is hard because you are a minority in the sport? Try being the only girl in a sea of boys in India where male / female roles in society are clearly defined. Atita ignored all the comments and stares, and she didn't just skate, she started a revolution so younger girls would start skating too.

Watch her story in this short film that Toyota created for their new  "Start Your Impossible" Series. 

 "Seeing people progress in a world that always tries to make you fail, I think that's really, really powerful." 

Atita Verghese - the only girl who was skateboarding in India.
