The 3rd Annual Ladies Jam kicked off under sunny skies and by 10:00 AM the skatepark was filled with girls of all ages skating everything in site. The youngest competitor was just 3 years old and the oldest in her mid 40's.  During the 25 yrs and up part of the comp, we heard Quinne Daniels and Vianez Morales cheering for their respective moms, who competed in the snake run - how cool to see moms and daughters compete at the same event!

We kept hearing girls say to one another "hey!  I know you from Instagram!" - the meets up were fast and furious and friends were made IRL. Two popular skater girls on Instagram, Nymias & Aliqqak were in town from Indonesia and stopped by to compete and took pictures with their new American friends.

All the girls cheered one another on during the comps and every girl that participated got a medal and a sponsor goodie bag - some girls were so excited about the swag, that they competed in more than one division throughout the day.

The best part of this event is seeing so many girls come out and skate, meet one another, form friendships and they now have a group of girls to continue skating with throughout the year.

Huge thanks to the City of Los Angeles, Venice Rec & Parks, Skate Park Association International, Heidi Lemmon, Lance Lemond, Kimi Kallman, Jim Gray, all the judges and volunteers, the photographers who covered the event, as well as the numerous sponsors who sent so much product that every single girl went home with a big bag of swag.

Hope to see everyone again next year!
