Earlier this week, plans were put in place to create the FIRST EVER global qualifiers for the X Games in Austin, Texas.
The top 2 ladies from the Wheels Of Fortube Advanced Division will be given ‘Wild Cards’ to officially compete in the Women’s Street Competition at the X Games in early June 2016.
Women’s Skateboarding Alliance (WSA), the global management and consulting agency dedicated to authentically representing the industry voice of women’s skateboarding in partnership with The Alliance, a nonprofit association of professional women skateboarders, established the first ever global qualifying event in the history of women’s skateboarding for X Games. WSA is honored to team up with Seattle-based Skate Like a Girl (SLAG) and ESPN’s X Games to facilitate this venture.
“With worldwide telecast support from ESPN and increased participation by female skateboarding globally, we now have an opportunity to further support and develop up-and-coming women skateboarders on an international stage. We are thrilled to be working with Skate Like a Girl and the X Games to reach this critical milestone in women’s skateboarding.”
The much anticipated sanctioned Skate Like a Girl 7th Annual Wheels of Fortune official qualifier contest will debut May 6-8, 2016 in Seattle, Washington at the venue, All Together Skate Park.
