The list of girls competing is big and all your favorite skaters will be there. More updates on list of names and if there will be a live web cam soon!


  1. How is Julz Lynn not even mentioned here , women's skateboarding right . Guess shes not mainstream enough .

    1. Julz was on the original voting list , now its down to final 5 after those readers votes were tallied. Bummed Julz isn't in this mix - she is badass!!

  2. Amelia Brodka is missing from this list, yet she is the female ambassador of skateboarding. She is an all around great person with amazing flow and style.

    1. We agree! We love Amelia and all she does for women in skateboarding - she was on original voting list - now it's down to final five and we wish Amelia was still in the running - she is so deserving!

  3. The article states "Nominees". If I recall, this was a voting thing... If enough people didn't vote, they didn't get nominated.

    1. That's the way Transworld chooses to term this so we follow their PR guidelines when sharing info.
