When I was younger and I was skateboarding with all my friends I never saw any girls or women skateboarding in the media. Maybe in a cartoon but not in real life. I was involved in a lot of different sports and I guess even when I was young I was determined to be the best I could in whatever sport and it did not matter If I was a girl I was going to be great. I think this documentary is long overdue to give props to all these amazing girls and women who are out skateboarding showing their amazing skills and now is even an Olympic event!
