Exposure 2015 – All Girl Skate Contest & Benefit

After months of preparation, Exposure 2015, the biggest all-female skateboarding competition in the world, went off on Saturday, November 7, 2015, in Encinitas, CA. Skateboarders from all over the planet were in attendance and the event was carried out with great organization with over 100 competitors in the bowl, vert and street contests. With 14 and Under, 15 and Over and Pro Bowl, Vert and Street divisions, the competition was both fun and fierce with all ages and all terrain skating represented. Amelia Brodka (founder), along with her team, do a great job every year for this event, which shows the potential of female skaters and, at the same time, reminds us that women continue to fight for equal opportunities and rights. Exposure also helps and supports survivors of domestic violence by benefitting Carol’s House, an emergency shelter in Encinitas for survivors of domestic abuse. We can continue to support with donations in cash or products and services. http://exposureskate.org/donate/

Allysha Le, Amelia Brodka and Autumn Tust were the undisputed conquerors of the vert arena, while Alexis Sablone, Candy Jacobs and Lacey Baker took first, second and third, respectively in the street comp. The highlight of the day for many was the bowl skating, with brute lines by Julz Lynn that would make Salba proud, and coping crushing runs by Allysha Le and Autumn Tust.

The day was filled with skate comps, plus a variety of other activities. In a sign of the times, more male skateboarders than ever were out in force in support of the ladies. Two of skateboarding’s pioneers, Bones Brigaders, Steve Caballero and Mike McGill were on hand to support the event, as they have been for years, along with skate luminaries and judges for the event, Owen Nieder, Adam Taylor and Adrian Demain. X Games Gold Medalists, PLG and Andy MacDonald gave their stamp of approval for the benefit by signing autographs for the record-setting crowd, while Neal Hendrix and Scott Taylor emceed this year’s contest. Neil Mims, Jimmy Wilkins, Alex Perelson and PLG taught skate clinics to kick off the day, and the hardcore contingency was in full effect with Grosso and Navs and hundreds more showing support for the girls with booths in the vendor area.

EXPOSURE is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering women through skateboarding. It creates opportunities for women by organizing events that provide all-female professional and amateur skateboarding competitions, learn-to-skate clinics and wellness education. Partial proceeds from Exposure events support survivors of domestic violence.
