Jenna Selby Interview

jenna-selby-redbull

"Photographer, skateboarder and named one of action sports' most influential women by Transworld, Jenna Selby still manages to fit in writing, filming, running her own skateboard company, oh and organising the odd event or two. To say that Jenna does it all would be an understatement, but what's particularly endearing about this very mellow lady is her commitment to pushing women's skateboarding; and to do it without going down the tired old route of slapping flowers and pink banners on everything."

Planet Notion: Boardwomen

"Inspired by a resurgent skate community and a series of exciting projects, we dispatched our Culture Correspondent Nina Hoogstraate to investigate the other side of skateboarding – the women. Were they (as with other sports) sidelined as per tradition, or did skateboarding offer a forward-thinking and equality-driven environment in which sportsmen and women compete and practice side-by side? We’ll find out as the week unfolds and we talk to the boardwomen who skate, dream and inspire…" - Planet Notion
