Skateboarding IS for Girls.

Once upon a time, skater girls were a huge part of a weekly comic book series called JINTY which was published in Britain from 1974-1981. I love some of the cover lines like "Rebel on a Skateboard", but look closely as sometimes the writers had a little fun getting snarky with comments like "stick it - they can count me out!"

But my favorite cover line is the one that says "Skateboarding IS for GIRLS. Our smashing story proved it".

Yep, all skater girls are super heroes and don't you forget it.
