We Offer No Apologizes For What We're Doing In NYC on Thursday.

Wednesday, February 27, 2019







Last year we put up 2 big billboards that featured female skateboarders in a high traffic area (Sunset Blvd.) in Los Angeles, and now we're doing it NYC!  Yep, you heard that right. We are lighting up the sky and launching not one, but TWO huge electronic billboards in Times Square this Thursday evening, and both billboards will feature female skateboarders!

March is National Women's Month so we thought we'd kick it off the night before, by featuring women in skateboarding in a BIG way.

Some of our California skate crew, along with our photographer are flying out and will be in Times Square Thursday night  - Quinne Daniels is our ambassador and she will be giving out Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word pins and stickers along with team rider, Kyra Williams, during the launch. Our photographer, Ian Logan, will be shooting pics of any and all skater girls who come through. And to highlight National Women's Month - the gallery will be posted on our site for you to download, and a selection of images will be on our Instagram for you to share as well.

Hashtags for the event are:

#girlsskatetoo
#girlisnota4letterword
#NationalWomensMonth

We heard that OH-SO Magazine, QUELL Magazine and Adrienne from MS RPRSNTD, as well as Lola "The Young Vandal" will all be attending - we can't wait to connect with all the NYC skaters we haven't met yet, so we hope to see you there!
