Ramping Up Support for the Girls!
8:33am 27th June 2014
Two young women from Weymouth are trying to entice more girls onto the ramps.
Sadie Osborne is one half of Skate Girls Productions.
They're holding a special community fun day at the Front Skate Park on Saturday 12th July from 12pm - 6pm.
It's open to everyone and will cater for all abilities.
We asked Sadie, who's an avid skater, why other girls may be put off of trying the sport.
"You see a lot of guys on the ramps and you are a little scared. It's not that the boys are sexist towards the girls, is that the girls can lack confidence. So we want to have this as raising confidence in people and give girls the chance to just have a go."
The event will also feature, live music, BBQ, Tie Dying and crafts.
