SAN DIEGO — A local nonprofit aims to get women and girls of all ages into the skate park and onto a skateboard. Tabitha Lipkin explains how Exposure Skate provides women with a place to learn while giving back.

“After seeing my own girls start skateboarding when they were 6 and 8, I saw the positive life lessons that came from that right away — like the pushing through fear, the falling and getting back up, over and over and over again to accomplish what you want. And their confidence levels shot through the roof,” founder and director Callie Kelsay said.
