Well with many, many months of plugging away at endless emails and phone calls two weeks ago was our Second All-Female Skate Jam. Even in 104″ degree weather we had a large turn out of skaters, artist, friends and people showing their support.
This non-competitive event is directed towards the celebration of female skateboarders and artists, aiming to showcase their skills and talents within a positive and supportive community environment.
Sol Collective our physical sponsor is a very active group of wonderful people who came out with their Non-GMO seeds along with all their fun projects for the kids to do while their moms were skating. Sol Collective is ran by Estelle funder/activist.
We started the day setting up tents and the art work shop for the kids. The Women teaching the children where artist Miss Reds, Agana from Oakland, Jenn Ponci from Grass Valley, and Detiy drove all the way from LA just to paint for the day.
We had female skaters from Oregon, LA, SD, Santa Cruz, SF, Oakland, Grass Valley etc. Ranging from age 6 to 65 years old.
