We are proud of our friend #GiovanniReda, webby award winner of the Brian Anderson Coming out documentary who seems to become the truth seeker in skateboarding. His new video Nora is yet another documentary breaking the norm and featuring one of the raddest skaters out there - and yes, she is a lady….
It’s about time skateboarding openly addresses the backwardness and gender inequality in the sport and act against this. Girls rip, and if you let them in, they rule… We all know skating has not been an open community or industry for girls who wanted to be taken seriously ….
Kudos to Giovanni Reda for taking on yet another serious and narrow-minded angle of skateboarding. Break limitations and open up minds. Go Reda. Can’t wait what you are up to next … ✨ 💙✌🏼💙 ✨
