After nearly 3 years of fiming, editing, touring and screenings, UNDEREXPOSED is finally going to be available to the public! Look out for our iTunes and On Demand release coming Feb. 18!
For those of you focused on the recent soundbite from Nyjah’s Thrasher interview: take a moment to think about the kinds of responses he has received.
There have been a ton of responses, the majority from men who have spent more time on this planet than young Huston, that express a strong disagreement with Nyjah’s statement. This just goes to show you that there is a ton of support for today’s rising amount of girls and women who skateboard. The many who have recently defended women’s skateboarding have not only expressed excitement about girls who skate, but brought up specific examples of female shredders who disprove Nyjah’s comment. This reveals that people are not only supportive of girls’ skateboarding, but actively follow it.
If anything, this innocent slip-up of a young man in the middle of a recorded conversation, has created yet another avenue for people to express that they find value in the growing sector of women’s skateboarding.
I hope you can all join me in forgiving Mr. Huston for his accidental comment. He surely expresses himself best through his incredible skateboarding talents. As a fellow skateboarder, he knows playing skateboards is for everyone. So let’s forget about it and go skateboarding. Congratulations on your new shoe, Nyjah!

2013 has been great so far!
I got this photo and a multiple-page interview in the new Skateboarder’s Journal!
Also, my Alma Mater, USC Annenberg, wrote an article on UNDEREXPOSED! Read it here: http://annenberg.usc.edu/News%20and%20Events/News/130117Brodka.aspx
And I’ve been obsessively skating the combi bowl. Here’s a little edit:
And now I’m getting ready to go to Australia for the Hurley ABC in Newcastle! Yay skateboarding!
I went home to New Jersey for Christmas and tried to go to a bunch of parks and film a few clips. The experience reminded me just how easy we have it in So Cal…
Happy New Year!
I went to an amazing high school.
Gould Academy has a skateboard program.
Before you think “ew, organized skateboarding,” check out a new part of their program.
The So. Cal Skate Trip takes Gould and non-Gould students from all over the country to skate some of Southern California’s best skate spots.
From private parks to historic street spots, we tried to hit them all last summer.
Check it out:
With a school like that, you can see why I’m excited to travel to Maine to re-visit the campus next weekend.

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.
