Exposure Skate 2016 brings much needed support to female skaters and victims of domestic abuse

This past weekend, the fifth annual Exposure Skate took place in Encinitas, CA at the “Poods” skatepark. Co-founded by Amelia Brodka, the event raises awareness for the female skate industry, as well as supports victims of domestic abuse. Over one hundred skaters came out in support of the event, with ages ranging from 4 to forty. All proceeds from the event went to Carol’s House, an Encinitas-based emergency shelter for victims of domestic abuse.

Following all of the festivities at the skate park, the ladies headed back to the TransWorld skate park to participate in a skate jam as well as catch the premiere of Quit Your Day Job. Mahfia TV helped put on the premiere of the first all-female skate film in the US in over a decade.

TransWorld SKATEboarding put together a recap of the much anticipated event, and we couldn’t keep our eyes away. Here are the top highlights from the weekend:
