We’re stoked to be their friends and supporters, which is why we rock their gear and feature them in our photography and videos. We want to spread word throughout England about what they do, because together we can accomplish so much more.”

At Girls Session, we try to give girls the same chance to express themselves and progressing skateboarding. We believe by working together we can make things happen,” Said Jana Coppensco-creator & event organizer Girls Session, Waarloos, Antwerpen, Belgium.
“I was keen to get on board and support a brand that encourages girls to get into the shredding sports! SheShreds makes girls feel like they can own sports traditionally dominated by men. It offers girls a chance to stand out and stand up, doing what they love, and support a company that supports them! I hope to use SheShreds to get girls out there, involved, and shredding it up in style — especially on the water!” Ashleigh Thomas (Ashie Tee), Professional Kneeboarder, Adelaide, Australia.

Their uplifting influence in male-dominated industries is enlightening. Aligning with them empowers me and hopefully other females to sustain faith through any of life’s obstacles.”
