Back in 2012 when I first stepped into the surf and skate scene I felt that the presence of Ladies was lacking. A place for us all to be completely ourselves while diving into sports that are a bit terrifying.
It's always been about team work, community building, and changing a culture that has somewhat casted our Ladies as watchers instead of doers.
Ladies Shred is for everyone, when the Ladies are empowered so are we all.
Whether it's our After School Skateboarding Classes, Mom / Adult Daytime Classes, Community Events, or our epic SURF/SKATE/CREATE day camps we are dedicated to include who ever wants to join. Though we predominantly cater to girls/ women we LOVE watching everyone rise and progress in these sports.
What you learn with Ladies Shred:
- team work
- how to ride
- how to stop
-how to fall
- safety of the ocean and ramp
Ladies Shred is more than lessons and camps, it's a community of like minded shredders who encourage and cheer each other on.
If you want to be apart of our crew don't hesitate to reach out!
Entering the world of board sports is a testament of wanting to connect. Learning any type of board riding requires balance and patience. That's why I choose to incorporate visualization, goal setting and beginning yoga (discussing how taking care of our bodies helps us to grow as boarders)
Knowing how challenging it can be to learn something new, we keep a very easy demeanor when teaching. Learning should always be fun. Constantly reminding ourselves to be easy on our progress, even the tiniest steps are greatly important.
When something scares us we know it's time to do it, we will always encourage you to push your fear boundaries safely by building confidence first.
