i was at night skateboarding back home, at the time nobody was around, a safety guard saw me, and talked to his fellow, " is there any women safety guard around?" ; when i was practicing skateboarding, those young boys always like to mock girl skateboarders.
"i just think as a women in skateboarding it was just as a very solitary thing. ...... a lot of guys are intimidated by a girl being at a skate park, just as much as i am intimidated by them being there."
"when you're learning certain tricks, think about how many times you fall. ... so i think, as a girl, that might be magnified, then it's like, you learn to not give a sh*t about it. and that's where all the power really lies"---- Nora
"when i first started, their wasn't (girls).... people would say to me like,' oh, you are a female skateboarder,' or ' the first female pro.' or some stuff like that. i was always thinking in my mind like, what, why is it gotta have that attached to it, you know?"---- Elissa Steamer
"it's a very sexiest sport, you always get judged being a young women,... i always love that girl sweat at that skate park. it's like just another human enjoy myself."---- Sage Elsesser
