Girls Rider Organization(GRO) is the first non-profit organization open to all females in skateboarding, snowboarding, and other action sports. With crews in NY, CA, CO, TN, VA, MI, NJ, IN, and ONT, GRO has made a huge impact on the female action sports community. They run workshops and events where girls from all levels can come together feel safe, supported, and shred! Female skaters and GRO members will be leading all day workshops for beginner skaters. This is the perfect place to dip your toes into something new in a judgement free zone!
The skate area will be provided by NY’s Gnarmads, in collaboration with local brands and skate companies. Gnarmads play a dominant role in the NY skate community and beyond, consistently supporting members of the skate community through various events such as fundraisers, art shows, performances, contests, lesson clinics and events.
So bring your boards and come skate with us!
