MANILA, Philippines — Margielyn Didal has further cemented her status as the heavy favorite in the upcoming 30th Southeast Asian Games after dominating two separate international skateboarding events over the weekend in California, USA.
This year, was a special year in women’s skateboarding in general. It’s the year that skateboarding contests really started to “mean” something due to Olympic qualifying events. We’ve seen an insane amount of talented women coming from all over the world to compete in these events. However, long before the Olympics were on the horizon for skateboarding, Amelia Brodka saw a lack in exposure for women skateboarders and sought to fix that with the Exposure contest and non-profit.
For the eighth year running Exposure brought together skateboarders from around the world for the largest international women’s skateboard contest.
This year they switched things up a bit and moved from their usual location in Encinitas to the Vans off the Wall Skatepark in Huntington Beach. The prize purse hit a record high of $60k but even with so much money on the line, the contest was still the heart-warming display of camaraderie and stoke that we’ve come to expect from this event.
THE EIGHTH ANNUAL EXPOSURE OPEN brought women from around the world not just to compete, but to support one another. Across ages and places, Exposure highlights the friendship that skateboarding fosters, and the incredible positivity that women’s skateboarding enables.
