When over 100 girls from all over the world, turn up to skate, you know it's going to be a good day. Exposure, held in Encinitas, California was the mecca of women's skateboarding this past weekend. From Pro to AM, and even some tiny little beginners in the mix, the day was full of girls skating and cheering each other on, getting autographs from their favorite skaters, shopping the vendor village, eating great food, and watching the action unfold.

It really didn't matter so much who won, what mattered to most of the girls was getting a chance to skate with so many other girls juts like themselves, and connecting in person with those they may only know via social media, and it was also about having a lot of fun.

It was also about giving back, every year Exposure raises money for Carol's House, a non-profit that helps women and families affected by domestic violence.  This year a check for $5,000 was presented to Carol's House, with even more donations still being collected throughout the day. Pretty awesome to see.

We'd like to thank Amelia Brodka and Lesli Cohen for putting this event on year after year. It always seems like it just can't get any better than it already is, but somehow it does! Every year brings more girls, more vendors, and bigger prize purses, it really is amazing!  Everything has been thought through and the day runs so smoothly. Not an easy feat with an event this large.

Huge thanks to everyone on the Exposure team and the volunteers, who work months and months in advance to make sure this event runs smoothly - you are all amazing, so thank you for all you do for girls skateboarding. We appreciate you all!
