Recently, the parents of ten-year-old skater Spencer Breaux sent us a paper she wrote titled “My Extreme Dream.”
The paper was chosen to be in a city-wide competition in Denver, CO.
Spencer is not only bright, but she is also an amazing skateboarder!
“The skateboard industry usually neglects to put girls in skateboard advertisements because they think that girls won’t help them sell their products. The girls you do see in magazines don’t actually skate. This is only encouraging girls to sit and watch, instead of to skate.”
“Exposure has become one of the only all-girls’ contests. Whenever I go there, I can feel the unity of the girls who all desperately want women’s skateboarding to progress. It inspires me to make a change.”
Spencer’s drive and perseverance is proof that the future of women’s skateboarding is bright!
