While we love that writer Jill Di Donato mentioned our founder, Cindy Whitehead, in this Style from the "Ladies of Shred" article, what is really rad is that this article is not only about NY female skateboarders, it's also about their awesome style, and how there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a rad skater and having some serious fashion style.
Guys in skateboarding have been celebrated for their style on and off the board for years, Steve Olsen, Duane Peters, Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Alex Olsen, Dylan Rieder, Chris Haslam, Kevin Staab, and many more come to mind.
But we don't talk about the girls style as much. Perhaps we feel that it takes away from talking about their athleticism? We don't think the two things are mutually exclusive. Do we feel that when we comment on Venus or Serena Williams choice in fashion on the court, it takes away from their serious power of play? Not a chance.
If you'd like to read the rest of Jill's article and see some rad pic's of skater girl style, jump over to CULTURE TRIP and check it out - we love this article and the photos by Kelsea Kolso.
