EXPOSURE 2012: a women’s benefit event

Come on out to Clairemont Nov. 3rd! Whether you’re skating, want to learn, or just want to watch, come support women’s skateboarding as well as the non-profit Human Options. We’re raising scholarship funds for victims of domestic violence.

The event will feature learn-to-skate clinics from 9-11AM and then we will kick off the string of contests: AM bowl, PRO bowl, AM vert, PRO vert and wrap up with a “first to 540 jam.” Will you be the next female to land a 540? Mike McGill will be there to judge…

WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING SPONSORS. Please e-mail amelia.brodka@gmail.com for additional information…

Rocky Mountain Rampage

Team Pain and Sk8 Strong are doing some amazing work in Colorado. This past weekend I was grateful to have been able to make it out to the Rocky Mountain Rampage in Colorado Springs, CO. The vert ramp and bowl at the Memorial Skatepark are super fun, the turnout was great and the locals were amazingly hospitable. I can’t wait to go back again next year!

I’m super grateful to have been a part of the first women’s contest in 2 years! Everyone was skating really well and I was lucky to be able to sneak into 4th place.

Want to be in Underexposed?

I have been completely immersed in putting together Underexposed. Filming. Setting up interviews and shoots. Traveling. Logging what must be nearly 100 hours of footage. Editing.

It’s all slowly coming together and it should still be done by May.

DO YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT?

If you are a female who happens to love skateboarding, I’d love to see if I can put a clip of you in the film!

Here’s all you have to do:

Send me some clips of you skating and an introduction.

Don’t have any skate clips? At least send over an introduction!

For the introduction all that you have to do is grab a digital camera (or a friend who has one), make sure your face and shoulders are in the frame and say: “Hi my name is _____________ I (something quick about you– play a sport? have a job? what grade are you in?) and I’m a skateboarder”

In order to get your footage to me or producer Brian Lynch click this link: https://public.me.com/lannybirch , click on the “UnderexposedUpload” folder, then click the up arrow at the top of the window and then choose whatever files you’d like to send.

All ages/abilities/nationalities are welcome and encouraged to submit!
