X Games

"Call it YouTube, GoPro or Facebook, or call it a whole new way of sharing media that circumvents the gatekeepers who have historically decided what content does and doesn't make it into the world. Whatever the contributing factors, the result is the same: Women are connected directly to each other now; they don't need anyone else to tell them what's up."

The 3rd annual Girls Skate Camp is back! This Summer from July 28th to August 1st, a week long residential skate camp just for girls. Open to girls of all ages and abilities – its your chance to visit a whole bunch of different skateparks and learn from sponsored riders like Dora Horvath (Rogue, Roam And Seek) in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Based in the UK (near Birmingham) – the last two years have seen girls come from all over the country as well as a bunch of other European countries to take part, visit new parks, make new friends, learn new tricks and have a lot of laughs! We’re also very lucky to have such cool sponsors supporting the camp and all girls will receive a great goodybag of product thank to them (Hoopla, Rockstar Bearings, Rokeo, Rapanui, ShoeGoo, She Shreds, Rogue, F Riders Inc, Roam And Seek, Femipleasure, Tech Deck, Pommie Grommet and Brahboys). WOW! So whether you come by yourself or grab your friends – we’ll see you in the Summer – for the best holiday ever – a skateboard adventure!

We’ve also reduced the price this year to make it even easier for girls to get involved – but its still all inclusive – meaning that all your accommodation, food, drink, skatepark entry, pro riders, free goodies etc is all included – all week! (We’ve also got tasty new caterers this year who cook up delicious stuff!) (You can also now pay in small chunks to make it easier for parents or those who have to save up their own pay cheques!)

For girls coming from abroad – it’s easiest to try and get your flights to Birmingham – but if you do come to London then its just a 2 hour direct train journey away. Get in touch if you need help with travel plans.

Super excited because the last two years have always been the highlight of the Summer and you can check out previous videos and galleries on the website here. Keep an eye on the Rubicon Girl website for latest news and we’ll be announcing the next pro rider soon.

Sign up here.

"OMG!!! Even Pocahontas showed up for Thanksgiving at the Berrics, and apparently her skills aren't limited to painting with the colors of the wind and unifying races. She also has a pretty mean tre flip and isn't scared of tackling the ten rail!" - The Berrics

"Pint sized pro, Allysha Bergado may be under 5ft and only 17 years old but she’s clocked up 9 years on a board already! Aged 9 she was competing and at 12 gained her first X Games Barcelona invite, now 17 she’s a veteran of skate without the wrinkles. What she lacks in physical height she makes up for in the bowl, vert and park. Backside airing over all of us! Since the X Games in Barcelona last May, she’s been skating all over the place and has just returned from a trip to Japan with Lizzie Armanto and the Mahfia crew. We try and ask her about everything!" - Cooler
