Go Skateboarding Day and Women Skateboarders get some notice

Big day for women in skateboarding today. Super stoked for my skate friends Cindy Whitehead, Laura Thornhill Caswell, Patti McGee, Di Dootson and Robin Logan that made it out to Washington DC for the innoskate event. My flyaway skateboard helmet is being inducted to the Smithsonian collection as well. I was suppose to be working on a photo shoot that got pushed back a few weeks and so I didn't go. Thank you to Betsy Binckley Gordon and Jane Rogers for including me in with these amazing women.

The International Association of Skateboard Companies is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of Go Skateboarding Day this week by partnering with the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation at the National Museum of American History in Washington D.C.

The two-day festival dedicated to skateboarding called Innoskate takes place this Friday and Saturday, June 21st and June 22nd, in the nation’s capitol. The event is a big deal for skateboarding and will provide a grand stage to showcase the sport to the rest of the country.
