ADVICE & INSPIRATION FROM REAL GIRLS WHO RIP
Gnarly Girls is a blog dedicated to creating an inclusive community for female skiers, surfers, snowboarders, skaters, and beyond.
As a beginner, board sports can be intimidating. For many females, there's a lack of role models within extreme sports.
This is a place where novices can ask questions, explore, discover, and find inspiration to get to the next level without judgement.
MEET THE CREATOR
I'm Kelsey, and I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon.
I started Gnarly Girls to showcase the inspiring women who ride, and make beginners feel like part of an exciting and inclusive community. Growing up, I never felt like I had strong female role models in the sports that interested me. As a complete beginner in surfing and skating, I felt very intimidated throughout the whole process.
I wanted to create a community where beginners feel like they can ask the "dumb" questions without getting put down, and find female boarders to look up to.
