Flashback to April 21, 2013. On day four, Brazil’s Leticia Bufoni stepped up her game on the final run to secure her first gold medal in a buzzer-beater over Leo Baker.
“I’m so f—-ing happy,” said Bufoni right after the win on Sunday, posting a 87.33. “I’m so stoked! I mean… I’m just so stoked.” If you were there, this was one Women’s Skateboard Street comp to remember, and in case you missed it, enjoy this trip down memory lane!
May 4-6th, 2018 marked Skate Like a Girl’s 9th Annual Wheels of Fortune (WOF) weekend in Seattle, Washington. Hundreds of non-traditional skaters flocked to the Emerald City to participate in back to back weekend activities, representing from Mexico, Canada, Colombia, U.K., Denmark, Japan, and all across the USA!

In total, more than 100 sponsors donated prizes, 120 skaters competed, and 59 volunteers gave their time and energy to make it happen. See you next year for our 10th annual event May 3-5th, 2019!
