I was recently invited to Belmont High School to talk to 9th and 10th graders about pursuing your passions.
I talked about my love for skateboarding and the process of making Underexposed.
As a media academy, they were interested in the topics covered in Underexposed. I showed them a few teaser clips.
There were a lot of girls who talked to me about their interest in skateboarding.
Surprisingly, many of them shared the same story, their moms told them that “Skateboarding is not for girls.” After seeing clips from Underexposed, they saw that their moms were clearly misinformed.
After the presentation, I gave out some equipment from S-One and Tragedy Skateboards to help spread the skate love.
