It was the coldest day of the year so far, but around 7pm at a brisk and snowy 8-ish degrees, the girls started to file into Homage ready to shred.
If you haven’t heard of Homage, it’s officially a Skateboarding Academy by day, and when we are lucky enough, like we were on Wednesday night, they open up their space for anyone to skate for a small admission fee.
Johnna, who works at Homage, saw the need for a women’s skate night and made it happen! She and John (pictured below) welcomed skaters of all levels came to skate the 3 ramps, and a few other skate obstacles. (She also very kindly cleaned my wound, and put a bandaid on my hand when I cut myself later that night - thanks again Johnna!)
It was refreshing to see such a strong turn out of all levels and all rad energy.
Some girls even came to skate quads!
If you missed this session, we’re happy to announce that there will be more Women’s sessions at Homage with the next one being Friday February 22 7pm - 10pm.
