Yes, the largest female skateboard contest in the world is almost here. More girls compete in this than any other female skateboard contest, of any type. Guaranteed the Combi Pool at the Block of Orange is packed with ladies everyday this week dialing in their lines. There is good reason with Vans putting up a $12,000 Purse.
With the difficulty in classifying riders into am and pro, this event will have three divisions grouping the girls by age more than status.
Division one (14 and under) represents the young, upcoming riders.
Division two (15-27) represents the high energy, pro performance that have grown to define the scene over the past few years, amazing.
Division three (28+) is a representation of all of the women who have been pioneering and inspiring for years. Division three is representative of the masters division for the guys events and much needed to highlight these women. The ages are not a definitive placement, but hopefully allow the girls to shine the brightest.
Then bring it all together with one more prize crossing the divisions with $1,000 for the overall best run of the day.
