Exposure 2014: A Women’s Benefit Event

There’s a serious revolution going on in women’s skateboarding and this weekend’s Exposure 2014: A Women's Benefit Event, was proof that the bar has never been higher. Now in it’s third year, this nonprofit women's skate event is dedicated to providing female skaters an avenue to succeed while at the same time raising money for survivors of domestic violence. It was a festive atmosphere at the Encinitas YMCA this Saturday complete with a vendor row, skate clinics, a frontside invert contest judged by Steve Caballero himself, autograph signings, and multiple female divisions of ripping in both the bowl and vert ramp. Pro bowl finals had Lizzie Armanto earning the top spot, with Julz Lynn in second, and Allysha Bergado in third. In vert, Lizzie Armanto again took the win with Gaby Ponce in second, and event organizer/superwoman, Amelia Brodka placing third. Poppy Olsen was the top overall amateur and won a free week at Woodward West. Congratulations to all the participants and thanks to everyone who came out to support the ladies.
