The Exposure Skate 2018 event [co-founded by our great friend Amelia Brodka] was held at the Encinitas “Poods” skatepark this weekend and grew to a two day event with hundreds of participants and spectators alike. Each year, Exposure serves a dual purpose: to create opportunities for professional, amateur and beginning female skaters and to support at-risk communities by raising awareness, funding and resources for local non-profits. So Amelia and her team are doing great things for the local community and continue to give back to skateboarding and beyond. Great job Amelia and all the crew at Exposure Skate who helped put on the event. Below are just a few photos from this weekend's festivities. Great job ladies! Thanks for having us.
