The start of the year was quite interesting. I didn’t know what to write about for some time although I have topics planned out for the future. I felt like I want to do something different.
We had a meet up on 30th of December. It was really cool to see so many girls together in one place. We were 21 in total: 16 skateboarders and 5 inline skaters. @sb.girls came from Ventspils. Big up for that! I heard that someone even placed bets on how many people will show up. We surpassed the expectations. But there was a wtf moment like where were all of you before? Hope we will all skate again. Overall, it felt great.
I was asked to define what this column is about in general. Thinking about that, I can’t say anything specific, rather, we have a chance to witness the rise of skateboard culture among women in Latvia. I have a chance to be a part of that, share it and live it. Of course we will talk about more specific topic here. It is like a living organism that develops or stagnates. Where will it all take us? I don’t know. I smile and hope that this will lead to at least a couple of great sessions and on at least on sick trip. Well, let’s wait and see…
Not going to talk a lot today, will just grant you a hip hop/ trap playlist from myself, Linda, Uma, Karlīna, and Tīna.
