Women in Skateboarding Audio Project

Super stoked to be part of Patty Fung's UCSC multimedia audio project about Women's Skateboarding.

Patty Fung:

As part of my community studies social documentation course at the University of California, Santa Cruz, we were asked to select a medium and to produce a short documentary on a subject of our choice. The subject I choose was women’s skateboarding with a goal of highlighting not only the barriers that continue to exist today, but the rich narrative of women who have been riding since the rise of the sport as well as the recent growth of female skate communities that empower and encourage girls of all ages and abilities to ride with confidence. What you will listen to here is not only an assignment for a course, but a project for the community of women skateboarders all over the world who have ridden and those that continue to push the limits of skateboarding with passion.

(Note: My hopes is that this will be continued as a bigger project to capture the stories of individuals beyond the community of skateboarders in the Bay Area, California. If you would like to share your stories, experiences, and related media about the subject, please contact me at with “Audio Documentary” in the subject line.)

Steve Caballero, Kayla Caballero, Cindy Whitehead, Patti McGee, Julia Davis, Jolie, Mathew George, Gary Holl, Erica Harris and myself.

Thanks Patty.

My interview was done at Nextspace it seemed as though we were being followed by the Harley from Patty's place to downtown. I enjoyed the Nextspace ROP graphic design forum yesterday morning. Thanks for the invite Iris, Jeremy and Ryan.
