“When it comes to skateboarding, you’ve got to have what it takes to fall down but get right back on the board. Meet the Thunder Bay Female Skateboarding Collective and how they provide a safe inclusive space for females & LGBTQIA+ persons to learn how to skate in Thunder Bay.”
Shoutout to Vanessa Bowles for taking the initiative to encourage inclusion in the skate scene way up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. This incredible woman started the nonprofit organization Female Skateboard Collective, which offers offers FREE lessons every Sunday morning from the local skatepark providing a safe inclusive space for females, LGBTQIA+, 2 spirited and non binary persons to learn how to skate in Thunder Bay.
