"Forgotten Island was created with the intention to support and give back to approach the female skate in our country, to impact and generate own content to motivate and support all skaters that although we are becoming more, every day we are in the shade. This island is the point of attachment and motivation of the whole Spanish scene skaters that will inspire generations to come.

We want to create a space above show that our condition is our condition as women skaters. A space in which to convey that the greatest reward of skating is skating. It is based on this philosophy that we want to spread everything that is going on and what we want to happen in our scene.

On this website you can find inspiration from both national and international skaters but always tried to give relevance to our national riders."

In 2009 Jenna released the first ever European female skate film ‘ As If, And What?’. Following on from its success, the director and filmmaker is back with the second installment, ‘Days Like These’.

With the level of female skating getting ever better it seemed like the right time to make a new film and to showcase what these girls are doing.’ Jenna explains. ‘The project will essentially document the skills of a core group of the top female riders in and around the UK and Ireland, showing how these riders interact with their environment (differently to most people) and how they creatively can make something from an object which most people wouldn't give a second thought to.’

Featuring a selection of the skate industry’s top female riders, such as Lucy Adams, Josie Millar and Dora Horvath, the film was shot all around UK and Ireland. Aside from the action, the project sets out to showcase the backgrounds of the girls in their local areas and visits some of the legendary women who have helped shape the industry into what it is today. ‘These women are out there pushing the sport of skateboarding. They are not just a group of people who carry a board around!’

Coming winter 2015.

For the most part, skateboarding is a male-dominated activity. That's not to say that there aren't plenty of girls out there who rip just as hard as the guys. It's just that the scrapes, bruises, and dirt that come along with it typically don't appeal to the average female. But Leticia Bufoni (@leticiabufoni) is slowly but surely changing that stereotype. We go back to São Paulo, Brazil to see how it all started and hear firsthand how growing up wasn't exactly a bed of roses. Everyone has a story. Everyone comes from somewhere. Never forget where you're from and always know where you're going.

"They ride the subway, skate street spots in all boroughs, drink Coconut water, eat pastelitos for lunch and drink 40’s at the courthouse at night. Based in NY, the Latina skate crew Brujas combine skate, art, parties, and life to put on girl skaters of color and Latinas in the Bronx and the Heights. In South American and Caribbean culture, Brujeria describes the work of women healers, saints, and spiritual mentors. The Brujas crew are skate witches rebalancing the streets with their femme energy."
