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

Back in 2008 she created the first European female skate film called ‘As If, And What?’ and is now working on a second film, ‘Scratch the Surface’ which will focus on established riders as well as girls who are part of the emerging skate scenes in countries such as Afghanistan, China and Russia. Jenna talks to us about her experiences when she first started; founding her label Rogue Skateboards, and the mums’ that are getting more excited about riding a skateboard than their kids.

LISA WHITAKER
Lisa is an American skateboarder and founder of the Girls Skate Network, a website where you can find all things about women in skateboarding. Lisa explains the origins and purpose of the website, her childhood and skateboarding, as well as giving her opinions as to why the industry is growing to support women more, and how and why women and men have different coverage.

FRAUKE MEYN AND ERIKA KINAST
Frauke Meyn and Erika Kinast from Skateistan talk local skateshops giving them discounts, skateboarding as a tool for development and the changes they have seen with girls/women in skateboarding. Frauke is the programs manager at Skateistan; based in Berlin, she first began working at Skateistan as a volunteer in Kabul.

In this part, Elissa explains what "life after skate" is like and how surfing may actually be the key to her future. Enjoy." - Epicly Later'd

Elissa Steamer Epicly Later'd Part 2

 

 

"In Part 2 of our Elissa Steamer episode, we hear more about what it was like for the best girl skater in the world to hang out in an all-dudes world. These were the days of making Welcome to Hell after everyone had left it all behind to try to make it in California. Days when everyone on Toy Machine would wake up, get stoned on Jamie’s porch, and then go work on something that they knew was going to be special. That's how skateboarding history is made. Enjoy. " - Epicly Later'd
