brujas

"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."

X Games

"Call it YouTube, GoPro or Facebook, or call it a whole new way of sharing media that circumvents the gatekeepers who have historically decided what content does and doesn't make it into the world. Whatever the contributing factors, the result is the same: Women are connected directly to each other now; they don't need anyone else to tell them what's up."

"OMG!!! Even Pocahontas showed up for Thanksgiving at the Berrics, and apparently her skills aren't limited to painting with the colors of the wind and unifying races. She also has a pretty mean tre flip and isn't scared of tackling the ten rail!" - The Berrics

"Pint sized pro, Allysha Bergado may be under 5ft and only 17 years old but she’s clocked up 9 years on a board already! Aged 9 she was competing and at 12 gained her first X Games Barcelona invite, now 17 she’s a veteran of skate without the wrinkles. What she lacks in physical height she makes up for in the bowl, vert and park. Backside airing over all of us! Since the X Games in Barcelona last May, she’s been skating all over the place and has just returned from a trip to Japan with Lizzie Armanto and the Mahfia crew. We try and ask her about everything!" - Cooler
