GirlParts, an original rock band based out of Atlanta, GA. has influences ranging from jazz to heavy metal coming together to make driving beats, memorable riffs, and burning guitar solos. The music would be described as Pop/punk/rock and we are stoked to have them at the event.

The All Girl Skate Jam was started in 1990 by soul skater and photographer, Patty Segovia. The AGSJ has become the premier contest of its kind for girls. It has expanded from local venues to multiple events around the world. The idea for the All Girl Skate Jam can be traced back to 1990, when Segovia organized the first female All Girl Skate Jam demo in Reno, Nevada. Almost seven years later, after graduating from the University of Califfornia Santa Barbara, she saw that her female skateboarding friends were still not getting the recognition they deserved. Patty decided there was a void that needed to be filled. She pooled her resources from the action sports world, called every skateboarder she knew, and the All Girl Skate Jam was born.

Depending on the location of the event, anywhere from 50 to 100 girls compete in each AGSJ. Staying true to its motto “All ages, All abilities, All Girls, the All Girl Skate Jam will draw a phenomenal number of both amateur and pro skaters from around the world. Last year on Fourth of July weekend at Oceanside Pier, the girls competed with record breaking foot-traffic of over 500,000 throughout a 3-day weekend.

Originally an annual event, the AGSJ has grown to have multiple events in various locations such as Rhode Island, Hawaii, Spain, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Venice Beach, Puerto Rico and more. Segovia hopes to reach more and more skateboarding girls and women around the globe by making the event accessible to them

Approximately 20 pro girls compete consistently, traveling the country to vie for anywhere from $5,000-$7,500 in cash prizes. Amateur’s of all abilities compete for thousands of dollars in product prizes and are often excited about being on TV.

July 26th, 2004 Time Magazine article quoted Patty Segovia, “If girls don’t have clothing and equipment designed for them, it just adds to the sense that they don’t belong. According to the National Sporting Goods Association there were 1.9 million women skateboarders last year, an increase of more than 25% since 1999. Female skateboarding is on the rise.

The All Girl Skate Jam donates proceeds from each event to Cornucopia. This benefits people who suffer from metal illness and helps spread awareness on mental health.
